      Yeah me and a mate where going to come out and terrorise Buco (ie steal and thrash his Commodore when he wasn't watching... :D) but he rang and said they were having problems with the car and had pulled the pin...

      Shame really, i would have seen you in action had he ended up going to the track...


      BTW - Any news on the damage ?? Not too bad i hope ??
      The older i get, the better i was...

            Ok bit of an update.

            Turns out the motor spun 2 bearings due to oil starvation after thrashing it at Oran Park. Pulled the motor down and after doing some checking we found that it had an aftermarket dipstick in it, so with the different sump etc, the full mark on the dipstick was actually about 15mm too low which caused all the problems.

            Have since rebuilt the motor, and put on a TFC single plain manifold and new Holley HP 750 carby on.
            This new combo went on Trick & Mansweto's dyno and pulled 502.2hp.

            Took it out to Powercruise last month and had a ball, got the latest Street Machine and found a 2 page photo of my car!!!!

            I'm so farking stoked at having a car in a mag!!

                Ok time for another long overdue update.

                I finally got around to putting in a stereo so I can listen to some tunes whiel cruising.

                Details:
                Alpine 7894RB H/U
                Kicker Resolution 6" Splits
                Soundstream Trantula 6x9's
                2 x Digital Design 2012 12" Subs
                Alpine V12 MRV-T747 for Front
                Alpine V12 something for rear
                Kicker 600.4 for subs

                0 Gauge power
                Audison RCA's

                Its all setup for SQ, so no droning bass line that u here coming from 5kms away. It is so loud and clear if you turn it up you cannot hear ANYTHING apart from the music, even when doing 6800rpm!

                Now the pics:













                So now my car is probably half a second slower down the quater, but I give no fark as long as it does a skid im happy.

                        Farking sweet machine.
                        So have you spun another bearing?

                              Dunlop D01J semi's.

                              They are the same as what the Commodore Cup runs.

                              And it would appear I have spun another bearing, motor is out and going down this week to get rebuilt.
                              This time it will cop a head job, port match manifold to heads and a carby space for a few extra HP.

                              Oh and a new fucking sump thats for sure!

                                Did it starve for oil ? Might need a accumulator for track work maybe
