Hi Glen73

The penny dropped for me today looking at your avator....i remembered it at xgn thinking it was a pretty cool looking Z.
im racing rfactor's V8SuperCars atm moment @ XGN still. Only play gtl every now and then. rfactor has one of the best netcodes and ton's of mods and is a lot easier than gtl to run on your system. great for online leagues.

While i enjoyed saturday a lot i didnt enjoy the 2nd gear syncro jamming up, even double clutching didnt help. Always had to wait till the rev's dropped right down before down shifting into 2nd. I probably would have enjoyed my mx5 better. Might have kept up with the you and dimitri then :)

Hi Guys,
Thanks for a great weekend. Sach sorry we missed you and the boys early Sunday morning for breakfast. I think we all had a great night. I can still make it to 2.30am not bad for an old bastard and no hang over ha.
Great pictures and awesome to see so many Zeds. I have never been on a run with so many and I have been on a lot of drive days. Let's keep it up guys. It gives us more reason to keep the cars on the road ready for a nice drive every few months. So if your car only needs a few things to get it on the road do it now because the Apollo Bay run will be here soon enough. Good company and look forward to seeing you all at the Jag Club. Let's keep the momentum going as we have the potential to lift this clubs profile and interest big time. I know of about 5 Zed owners whom we could talk into getting along to our get togethers and I am sure plenty of you guys are the same. I would be wrapt if we can get 20 to the next meeting. Always good to hear the little quirky things everyone is doing to improve there Zeds. Let's keep them where they belong on the road.


Well said Craig. We hope to book the Jag Club for a meeting in the last week of July. I will update the calendar once we have confirmation the place is free on the desired night. The Jga Club is an excellent venue for our meeting and we hope to discuss the next cruise. I will have my car ready way before the cruise and will be focusing my efforts on preparing video equipment etc and hope to get some really good stuff on the site. In the mean time if anybody is interested we can always organise smaller day drives but I'll leave those impromptu plans to individuals that night be keen to go for a squirt, it might be as simple as seeing we are going to have a nice day on the weekend and posting info to see if anybody is interested. I hope to go for a squirt around King Lake area in the coming weeks but I won't hijack this thread, I'll post else where if that evebtuates.

To resize images quickly without hassle download this for Windows XP

http://www.microsoft...ppowertoys.mspx

On the right hand side you will see a link:
Image Resizer
Download ImageResizer.exe
521 KB 2 min @ 28.8 Kbps

This works really well for those who don't want / need photoshop or other programs. Just right click on the image and resize to desired size / dimension.

I might write a post about this as a FAQ.

Hey Sach, well I just got one too! $220, I can see the headlines "Rev does runner 23km over the limit in small country town", I guess a good lesson learned, however I would have paid that much just for the fun of the drive!

Wholly molly is that 2 or 3 people caught? I did hear there was a camera on the way into Warrigal on Saturday but we were all doing 60-65klms. I now remember seeing that camera and pointing it out to Sulio on the 2way who hadn't seen it. I guess the drive was a little revenue raiser for the pricks in Canberra. Never mind catching the murderers, rapists and people beating up in town. Far more productive. And Cops wonder why they don't have the respect of the young. But don't get me started.  Ha Ha

If I can add some advice on speeding afences
1: Write a letter stating that you were speeding at the time but because the car is so old and is still in mile and k,s you have made a miss jugment in convertion.???????????
2: state that this car is only drive very raley a got away on you.
3: find some who has a clean record that will vouch as the driver.

all of the above have served me well in the past.

Ps Good luck
regards Bruce

Well I got a speeding fine in the mail last night for that camera which I didn't see on Saturday. I think I will have to adjust my number plate for lower speeds. Keep an eye out guys as some others might get one tonight as I thought we might have all been doing around the same speed 69klm in a 60zone. Fine, a cost of a tank of fuel. Woopy do, the bastards.
Some good advise Bruce but with my record they just throw the book at me.
