I am coming over in a few days time, I reckon I might take the boat over and bring my X-Trail and Trailer, instead of flying over. I can take some larger parts over in the back of my X-Trail.

When we get my 240Z going we can go for a cruise.  ;D I will take it back with me on the boat then.

Well I'm hoping in  the next couple of weeks I should have mine buzzing around! Need to drive it around for a while to iron out any bugs! That is after it has an exhaust fitted....

Haunted hills hillclimb is on Sunday, come out for a look.
Drive the scenic route through Launching Place, Poweltown, Noojee to Newborough.
Very fun road, 100km's and very twisty (Poweltown to Noojee).
As I'm towing a trailer, I'll be on the freeway.

Hi Mayhem,

I've just installed Hilux front calipers and plan on putting th e 15/16 MC on the weekend so I can't make it to this one. I'm hoping to sort out an alternative option to the CH plates I'm running so I should be ready for a bit of a drive in a couple of weeks though. Hopefully Dimitri's car is up and running and we can hit the hills and get some lunch somewhere.

Cheers,
Sulio

you can drive to/attend any of the MSCA events (Hidden valley hill climb etc) on CH plates as these are advertised in the NDSOC monthly magazine.
or there is CH "Test and Tune" day on 6/7 of Sept

Or plan a run on the 20/21 of Sept to P.I for the Sprint meeting (maybe even enter the event ;))

Also Marque Sports GT rally is on this weekend up to Echuca.........


cheers

Alan

I'm hoping to make it to that sprint also..... First step is out of the way today; getting the zed to AEM in Bayswater. Last pic of my car this morning. After a 3 month hibernation, the zed is out of the garage for the first time to get some air...on the back of a tilt tray!

Ben, I'd be very curious to see what your car does as a 1/4 mile time with the RB in it just for perspective? Would you expect to have it in the high 12's low 13's?

Well...I went up to Apollo Bay on the weekend. Did'nt take the Z, long story. Anyhow i rode along in a friends 993 Porsche 911. The driver has been racing cars for over 30 years and currently runs a Lotus Elise up in NSW so I felt safe but he was pushing it pretty hard. It's always hard being a passenger with that sort of driving but man was it great. I was white knuckling it all the way from Lorne to Apollo Bay.
Anyhow, I gotta say great road that run from Lorne to Apolo Bay. OK better go outside and attend to the Z.
