    This was an amazing read. I can't pick a favourite moment between removing unused captive nuts and DIY-roof-splash-injector-testing

    Shit, I didn't realize it got so close to a 12 before being scrapped. Well bloody done mate.

    I wish I had the space too keep it. It was sooo close to running a 12. There was still some easy power to be gained too, but it ran out of rego and I didn't have a tow car at the time.

    Still so cut this didn't survive in some form or another. Worth the bump for the re read.

    Next project will be a Mirage MR350, which is basically going to be a 1997-2002 Mirage with a 3.5L manual Magna drivetrain in the back of it. Won't be able to start that for a few months yet though.

    I need to ditch the magna you want the 3=5 manual with brand new $600 clutch $800 for the whole car

    oh so sad to see its finished.. I cut 200 kg out of my 100% stock magna it now does a 14.5 @95mph. I race kids on the street in it too. beating SS's and XR8's in a stock magna is the best $300 ive ever spent

    Cheers. I was way too much of a pussy to drive this thing on the road (fear of getting defected). The only street driving it did was to and from the drag strip. The last drag day I did was with a Supra and Skyline club and I certainly surprised a few of them (they were on street tyres and I was on drag radials but).

    Next project will be a Mirage MR350, which is basically going to be a 1997-2002 Mirage with a 3.5L manual Magna drivetrain in the back of it. Won't be able to start that for a few months yet though. Interestingly it won't be an ICV but a 'modified production vehicle'.

    I don't mind doing a few cashies after hours. Can the job come to my shed or do I have to come to the job?

    This arrived in the mail today:


    Straight to the pool room for it.

    Ok, So I just read this thread from start to finish at work. Was worth it.

    First up congrats on a great project and thanks for sharing it with us! well done for the 13.0, sucks the 12 was never there but for a street reg'd car (hehehe) a flat 13 is mighty impressive! would knock alot of supras off their high horse.

    I'm amazed are your fab kills crack, I've seriously jealous of them and hate you a little... if you're in the inner west and want some cash let me know.
    All the best with the next project, I'll be keeping my eye out for it.

    I actually feel a bit sad. Had to happen. Wasn't worth much to anyone but me. All safety features (except brakes) were compromised. Wouldn't feel right selling it and the buyer/others getting injured because of it

    edit: ran out of rego and didn't want to renew it as already pay rego on enough cars. don't have a trailer to take it to the drags so it would be stuck at my place unable to be used
