    Haha yep Bubba is a loose unit...mofo can drive!!!

    Was at Torque-Power stand checking out lil paw blocks & talking to the blokes for good 30mins,nearly bought one.
    an easy fix is get a mate to drive in front of you at 60 then 80 then 100 and mark in on your speedo with some liquid paper.

      the AC delco car looked like it had a bloody meaty power curve (but they might have wildly different RPM axis ranges). interesting to see how differently they produce basically the same power. as a layman to drag racing, I'm guessing the supercharged car would be a lot easier to get down a track?

      congrats dale, that is huge!

      hub dynos are a fantastic thing, you'd never be able to do that on rollers safely/reliably.

        Troglodytes who want to bang on about "Soft Street" and how "the Summernats has gone to shit" can jog on. I can't wait to not have my car ready for #33!!
        I agree with this. I really enjoyed not having 500 fuckheads trying to push me out of the way to film one VL do a burnout so they can get internet famous.

        I reckon it's just the 'gym junkies' and you know who I mean who just want start shit with the security cause old mate pulled a skid.

        The whole "oh fucking dog cunts do one skid and get booted" is a bit far from the truth as well. I saw plenty of little controlled skids.
        Make a bit of smoke and plod along. Security made sure they weren't out of control and pushed them along.
        I said it earlier I actually thought security was on point this time and I've been on the receiving end of the usual security fuckwittery.
        Who ever contracted the guys around the main cruise route/tuff street should be hired again.

        This is obviously assuming all your AUX outputs are doing something. Ie idle control, and the other does water spray, and the other updates your Instagram automatically etc.

          Open another lane of skid row, have skid races, both cars must keep moving and last one to the finish wins.

                    A VL and VK on Saturday afternoon. Two out of 1500 wasn't bad really, and even then they weren't being fuckwits. Tuff street on the brake then went down the street. Got warned to get off it then kept into it. Neither were unsafe but it had to happen.

                    Italics? Shirley not
                    That'd be really shithouse if that was even a thing.
                    I was impressed by WARGTR's come back skid after not doing so well on skid row. That thing looked pretty impressive just being parked up.

                      That’d be sad if true. Sure the event has its roots in Aussie/Yank muscle but there’s plenty of tough Jap cars out there worthy of an entrants sticker also.

                        Yep I have to agree with this 100%. Even though Marv was overworked like a toothless hooker on the M4 and couldn't stop to have ANY cans with us (wtf dude!), it was IMO a fucking good refreshing change of pace this year and glad that the missurs told me that i'm going because she had other shit to do in Canbrah. Should be a good year next year with any luck - especially because the poncho barge will make its debut! :D

                              My first 100% sober Summernats in the 15-ish years I've worked it for the mag. I'm not mad, I'm just disappointed.
