Probably because it spends more time off the road than on ;)

Back to the track yesterday to check out the new layout. Nothings really changed on the car except now on Federal semi slicks (hards) .
Guy in the Pulsar GTIR is a mate, he was running road tires and $40 ripco pads so terribly slow.
The guy with the Ferrari was pretty cool he did come and chat with us a bit, he was running bridgestone potenza road tires and claimed the brakes were fading but moreso he didn't want to wreck it :larf:



The VE? commodore was sweet, full cage, full ex andy booth engine and driveline, big brakes and full slicks. sounded mean. He was next to us in the pits and we talked all day.




Not sure on the specs for the VL but the owner has only recently purchased it. He blew one of the P steering lines earlier in day, all the smoke is that burning off exhaust etc.




Trying to stay ahead of the VE

Cheers for the vids... the MR2 is pretty quick.

With the new layout / walls it makes puke seem very closed in on the track, more street curcit style.

Hey Ggav!!

RGVKiwi told me you were going to be at puke in a turbo MR2, I thought he meant a SW20, so I was looking out for the wrong car!! I was there for a couple of hours with some friends in the MX5's, had I known it was you in that bitchin' growly AW11 I would've come over and had a chat, your car sounds like a beast and I love it!

My partner grabbed a quick shot of you because she knows I love AW11's [from having a tragic love hate relationship with my old broken one :( ]

Next time I see you at the track I'm going to take a ton of photos of the car, and gazm over your adub.

Yeah...for many years. I have most of the turbo parts I need, just need to fabricate a few bits and pieces.
Unfortunately work at the moment leaves me no spare time to do anything.
