Anyone going this weekend? I'm not competing myself but was thinking of having a quick look.

I am running on Saturday.
Just had a new cam, Extractors, exhaust and swaybar fitted so I'll be hoping for a bit more go than last time.
Also will be helping out on Sunday
From the current entry list, I am the only Z on Saturday but there is a few more running on the Sunday
Should be good if the weather is fine
cheers
Bruce

Yeah my brother will be running his 240Z on the Saturday. I will have to give this one a miss as I am getting a new Drive Shaft made up. I will probably be out there for a look both days just after lunch time.

John Mott update:
I got the car out this morning for its first run at Sandown.
Third lap in, I hit my elusive 120mph down the back straight,
4th lap, bottom corner before the back straight changed down into second (possibly over revved) blew the clutch.
The new cam and new exhaust sytem worked a treat and the new sway bar made a huge difference to handling.
Can't wait to get back out there.
cheers
Bruce

Didn't end up making it myself.
Bruce, what kind of swaybar did you fit?

Rod,
Its the front 24mm whiteline. 
The car has lost a lot of its lean that it had with the standard bar. 
It will be interesting to see how it goes down at Phillip Island around the big sweeping bends like southern loop.  That will be the real test.
