          So, what happened to all the cars that weren't completed? I reckon everyone who didn't finish should do at least one more update to let everyone know what happened to their car/s at the end.

          As for the SM story. I'm going to ask tomorrow if they're ever going to run the thing. If the answer is no, then I'll just put the story up here.

            Mines is still sitting here along with the bits needed to finish it. Got a dirt khanacross in a few weeks so it won't be touched before then but it may get looked at in the holidays.

                    Nice. Quickest car from this year was a 13.33 over the quarter, and last year a 13.25. So what is 1000 quid worth? About $1500AUD? ($1586 on todays currency, call it $1600)

                    What is rego worth over there though, that's got to be a big cost? Maybe we should do a $1500 or $2000 challenge or something, but insist the cars be regoed. Everyone show up at the track on the same day.

                      their cars have to be able to be allowed to be driven on the street.

                      also, they do slaloms too..

                      i can see a fair few of "our contestants" fail at the slalom and to win they had to have the lowest total time... so shaving a sec off the quarter was less interesting than to shave 2 seconds on the slalom..

                        Finding a track that will let you set up a slalom course is hard though.

                          yeah, the advantage of a small country is that everybody can use the same track, and you just rent it for a day...

                          well, teh magazine did. and with heaps of contestants each paying 5 pounds, and whatever..


                          anyway


                          i'm babbling

                            I don't see why you don't just do the same format again?

                            Gives those that couldn't have a go last time a chance at it, and also lets those that have taken longer to get there's done!

                              You could, but I figure those that haven't got them done yet aren't going to get them done in any kind of timeframe you set. Maybe they could, but I was thinking a slightly new idea using some of the PPC mag rules.

                              How's this -

                              $2000 Budget (can spend less though)
                              Cars must be registered and drive to the track under their own power
                              Previous 13 for $1300 finalist cars excluded (that excludes just six cars, but not the guys who had them)
                              No selling parts to modify budget (rather than give 250lb leeway, just give the extra budget)
                              All cars race same week at whatever track closest (set a date?). Would love to have everyone at same place same day but is it too hard?

                              Thoughts? Criticisms? Death threats?
