    If you work for street machine maybe it's worth doing an article on the 13's for 1300 projects.
    LOL, check the new thread.

      I can't make wed nights because of uni. Anyone able to confirm WSID is street meets on Friday also or is it wed nights only?
      Turns out, far too much has been written about great men and not nearly enough about morons

          IIRC Full throttle fridays are only in summer and you need to be a full licence holder to race

            Seems you're right. That blows. And same with the Test and Tune too apparently.

            Seriously WSID need to pull their heads out of their collective arses, no wonder the place is under investigation.

            Their calendar should be street meet every wednesday and every second friday (not everyone can race on wednesday for various reasons, plus open it up for quicker cars too), then test and tunes every second saturday, with a major meeting at least once a month. Much like Willowbank.

              Nice runs though. The turbo even took some of the moo out of it.

              lol at the fucked VN spec tail lights that come on and off.

                tried explaining this challenge to mum.

                mind you, quarter mile races are very obscure here...


                told her this challenge is to do a <14s run. for 1300dollars.

                she thought it didn't seem too difficult, it's only 400 meters.

                then i told her her car only gets a 20.5s quarter mile, her responce was "well, their cars only have to be 7 seconds quicker. hell, mine's not that far off..."




                then i told her my caddy does about a 15.5 run, just to put it in perspective.

                and still she didn't get it.






                if we had some proper base shitheap cars, i'd be in. but the average <1300 car is shit. the best one to start is a daihatsu applause.
                screw these second hand prices.

                  Some people are just never going to get it.

                    Best way to explain it is to list some expensive sports cars which run 13s.

                      Must have been a quiet weekend, I was hoping to come back and find another couple cars had run or something.

                        I was talking to a few guys about this the other day and most were surprised that no-one built a VL turbo. A NA VL could be bought pretty cheap and all the factory turbo gear would be easy to find.

                        Oh well, maybe next time.

                          Just on this....mate from work just ran a 10.90 in his R31 with turb etc...didnt quite fit the $1300 thing but I think thats a good time for what it is..

                            One for next year from me. Currently building a Gemini with a Holden six. 99% of parts were bought from Ebay or cheap from mates etc. Being an automotive technician by trade I've got the facilities to do a lot of stuff myself and access equipment (ssshhh don't tell the boss lol). I'm hoping for 300hp at the motor by bolting on a turbo I got cheap and doing another couple of little tricks including stroking the motor for extra torque. Will easily get it in under $1300 but will have to wait and see what it runs.

                              A turbo 6 in a gemini would be a shoe in 13, heck a 6 (maybe mildl mods) in a gemini would surely still hit 13's!

                                That V6 vengeance story was a good read when it was going.

                                It was always good motivation for the non XR6T turbo falcon crowd.
