nice mph! good for low to mid 11s there.

I think the only way to improve the 60ft is to get at least semi slick tyres

I reckon he needs softer suspension in the back to let it drop a bit. He knows he can do an 11 with slicks, but I think he just has something to prove on the street tyres....

Oh well, he'll get some practise in in another 3 months when gets back from sea

Yep, that's me in the front row - shutter open - on the other side! And sitting to my right is Mike FIVE10 in the white shirt.

I'm gonna send the two shots to Grant at Cackling Pipes and see if I can score sum free prints off him

Anyone out there tonight? Good nite for dragging the least amount of cars ive ever seen there!

Worst spectating nite saw the same cars every 20min and not once did the boards show up the ETs WTF?????

I like the new perminant big screen TV worth the extra $5 price hike!!

That sucks!

So they're charging $20 now for a spectator?

If they were really interested in growing the sport they'd slash the entry fee for spectators and racers in half and have more people there, but no...unfortunately the people running our 'government facility' have treated it like their own and are only interested in what's in one thing, money.

It's a bit steep I reckon....

And the big screen, whilst impressive in size, shows some fairly shitty, pixelated, low res crap images.... You're better off just looking at the cars on the track with your own two eyes.....

Anyways... I guarantee the big screen will be more about sponsor advertising space than anything else in the near future.... Pay an extra 5 bucks entry to watch large adverts on a large ordinary screen - yipee....

yeah i was running the 1600 last night. ran 7 and a half passes because there was so few cars there...

best time was 13.24 with my shitty street tyres. i blew a uni joint on my right half shaft on my 8th pass and it put a swift end to my night!! hahaha at least it was only the halfshaft not my tail shaft lake the offcial said as he came up to my car mid track!

when it cained the uni joint on the diff side the halfshaft swung up and put a 15 cm diameter hole in my boot next to the drainage hole. lucky it didnt hit the fuel tank! only about 8 cm away from it! %#@!ing unis this will be the 2nd time in 6 months... or is that %#@!ing drag racing i should be saying? hahaha still had a good night.

anyone see that 240z out there? dammmmmmn nice.
