Literary just down the road from my house there is a run way strip that is rarely used this time of year
someone had a great idea to hold a 1000m race to see who has the fastest car over a 1km stretch
its the first time this has run and it was a great event attracting some pretty awesome cars
here is a few I appreciated
This is Andy from Adaptronics Mx5
Andy has been helping me out lately sorting out some niggly issues with my tune and he is more than happy to help out and sort things out. It was great to finally meet him and shake his had
It also runs a 13b turbo smashing out 300rwkw!! just mental in a car this size
Another internet friend Nathan is the mechanic and builder of this awesome time attack evo 69 (its a mix of all evos from 6-9)
with a lazy 430kw at ALL 4!! they managed to take out 2nd out right at a huge 275 kmh
This was Nathans first time driving the car and he did an amazing job
Another 400 kw at all 4 evo
This clubbie was owned and driven by a lovely lady
she was a full rev head and knew loads about the 20v blacktop 4age and even made her own extractors!
more 400 something kw evos …. like thats just the norm around here!
nice tidy s2000 but unfortunately had an issue and ran off the track and caught fire! driver was a little shaken but was ok
There was also a small show and shine with a couple of cars of interest
This 31 coupe was very tidy!
Also managed to pass the 86 off as a “show” car scratches and all, she got some love and had a great chat to a few guys about all things hachi roku
Was a great day and meet loads of cool people
next year id love to give the 1000m blast a crack
hey guys its been a while since iv posted anything on the blog
Mainly due to the fact iv moved interstate and started a new job
the 86 made the 15 hour drive over no worries and has sat quietly in the garage waiting for some warmer weather (who would have thought the snowy mountains would be so cold!)
lately as spring has rolled around iv been playing with the car a little bit. The best news is ever since iv had the car when cruising at a constant speed it had a slight miss, somtimes it was fine other times it was a pain in the arse! Andy from adaptronic talked me through a fairly long process slowly looking through lots of possibilities and we finally sorted it. Timing now takes its signal from the exhaust camshaft because it does not move around as much as the inlet with the VVT-i. Car is a dream to drive!
Also been playing with the idea of a lip on my lip (yo dawg)
basically iv been looking at to many RWB porche pictures ….
the old saying applies
you can take the boy out the ghetto but you cant take the ghetto our of the boy
sure im ages away and not doing skids in SA but ill still continue to update the blog and share my carlife from over here
Ghetto garage is taking over!
