    It's still raining here :(, but I'm sure Warwick went off with a bang.

    I hope Ben's accident wasn't too bad.

  17. Green Split belongs to my cousins and is running a 2465CC Type 4 with 25/65 cam and 44 webers. Compression is about 8.5:1. Dunno where they got the turbo from LOL. Gearbox is a 1500 Type 3 box stock as a rock!!

    Car ran faultless apart from a throttle cable joiner slipping on 1 run. Considering he is running on tyres that are nearly 20 odd years old with perish marks in the sidewalls it gets off the line pretty damm good.

    Best time over the weekend from memory was 9.49 @ 72mph. Fastest Kombi I think for the meet.

    Engine cost @ $300 to build out of spare parts and crap under the bench!!

    Who says air cooled isn't the way to go.......

    haha the announcer was getting sold some dogy info all weekend!

    oh well... i'm still not to depressed about my result considering i'm running a stock 1600 with dual dell'ortos.

    first ever time drag racing, first run was my best at 14.05 ET with a 0.5 RT :)

    I was looking forward to racing you but heard you were having some gearbox or CV problems?

    The Green Splitty was great to watch. What a rocket. It looked to have nothing inside and perspex windows to get a lot of weight out. Put my 11.5's to shame and toasted most of the bugs in the process. :)

    Here are some pics we have.
    Great weekend. If your car isn't here I am sorry but my two teenage boys were taking the photos.
    Cheers
