Two weeks to go, can't wait to go through 5 tanks of 98 octain fuel, use up all the rubber left on my tyres and cover my nice shinny rims with $500.00 of brake dust , topped of with about 10 pub dinners, it's gonna be great.

Yeah really looking forward to it now boys. We have Mick joining us for dinner at Stanley for the first night.
Like I said last time down there. "I have never had a bad meal in Tassie. In fact all the dinners were excellent and I will order the same if I can". Ha
Yes sadly will be wearing out some tyres and some brakes but it will be well worth it.  8)

Installed some new/ old tricks on Dales Red Zed ready for the trip.

Motec Screwdriver ECU
Naps Manifold with K&H Air Filter
Gareth's old school front spoiler

Should make his journey a smidge more fun! Either that or you other guys will be tuning his ecu every other day  :P

Yes do you happen to have a two wire one? That is the Mk1 screwdriver and there is no info on installing, tuning or any bloody thing else on this ecu. Instead of a tps it runs a vacuum hose straight to the ecu. Really, it does!

I hope this won't give Dale an unfair advantage , cursing in to much luxury makes the other boys jealous . Air con ,powersteering,good driver ability, and comfy suspension .Are the serenity.
