HI Chaps
Well came in 4th at the Mt Alma Mile over the weekend. as a great weekend of motorsport.
Still ironing out some bugs with the new ECU but still managed a PB of 45.3
Kevin broke into the 39 sec this year WOW.

any ways here is one of my runs. Not the quickest but the most pooh was left behind

Nice work Paul. That little slide looked pretty minor (till I saw the smoke enter the cabin!)

BTW, what was it you were saying about catching Kev, last year? :P

Awesome ledge! Those little slides test the reaction speed!

How do you find the gearbox now you have had a few events? I have been tempted to get one for my 1600?
Do you think the quality is there?
The price is pretty good compared with the other boxes around

Lurchos, Yeah well. After being up that hill I would have never thought a sub 42 was possible.
Kev has just made that car better and better. Even if I had full slicks and a perfect run  there is no
way I could go under 42 let alone 39.  Kev wins. Maybe he might acknowledge my existence now.
That much opposite lock at 170kmh isn't my idea of little. :o

Gareth I cant believe how much I enjoy the gearbox. I also cant believe it cost me a car. Well worth it.

Lampy I have 700+hp. (dyno sheet to prove it). The box is just fantastic. Quality of components
and ease of use is fantastic. Replacement high wear parts like dog rigs and forks are only a couple of hundred bucks.
Try that from Holl. I would recommend the TT industries box to everyone

Cheers

PS its still fudgein ugly :-X

This car is one of my favourite Zeds. Once I get my rb26 zed sorted will look into getting a sequential box behind it too :)

The gearbox is just fantastic. I don't even care how much it cost now

The flat shift ignition cut is just brilliant. Cracking and flame out the pipe, LOVE IT
