f@*ken LOL at tab names.

Sounds like you did a damn fine job of organising again Bill. Shame I didn't/couldn't race and/or was to much of a s*#t c*#t to come watch!


Lol thanks mate. You know what that bloody sand is like, gets in everywhere... :D

Nah doesn't roll at. Just force of habit.

Fire extinguisher wasn't mounted was just sitting there. I have everything there to mount it but wasn't sure if there would be a cams regulation as to where to mount it.
Never really checked.
The white gemi isn't exactly built for any form of track use in the state it's in. (Wasn't supposed to be coming until a week before)
Rego diff (no lsd or locked rear) big wheels s*#t tyres.
I think Cameron and I did an alright job of it in hindsight?

yeah times were definately competative, at the end of the day man none of our cars were specifically setup for hill climb so they were never going to be optimal, but its good fun none the less!

As much as i wanna see that [for the safety and longevity of the car], you frying tires is still one of the most beautiful things to watch.

i never said it would stop the frying of tyres :P but the issue with that run where i crashed was at the end of it i had 2/3 of the left rear showing only canvas and the right rear had a small patch, these were all rubber before that run!

if i could get a bit more grip from a tyre and have a full depth of rubber on it i'll be happy ;)
