    Extra info - Roll cages, Show n Shine...

    Just wanted to remind you guys, that CAMs has strict policies in regards to padding on roll cages. Essentially, if you have fitted a Roll cage to your car, or any other added metal structure (harness frame etc) that can contact the drivers head in an accident, it must be covered with a specific type of padding. The padding is SF145 and can be seen in the pic below. It can be bought from most motorsport places, but on last check, a lot of places had run out of stock. Motorsport Connections (039553-4200) still has stock, so contact them if you need some. Any other sort of padding is deemed not suitable and you wont be racing.

    For those entering the Show n Shine, it will be in the same location as it was at the 2007 Nationals (for those that went). However, we will have slightly less street space, but should still have ample room to fit all the cars. There will be no designated spots based on type of car, so first in, best dressed. I would advise that if we want to get all the Z32's together, that you guys all coordinate with each other to get to the Show n Shine entry point as early as possible (9am) and enter as one group. Otherwise, you will be positioned all over the place, which is also fine, but not great for a club display. WYKKED and myself will have our cars their first, as we will be then doing traffic management to get everyone else is. So it should be pretty obvious as to where to park. But you will be directed on the day. All cars need to be parked by 10am as thats when judging starts.

    This year, there is also a Race class for show n shine. This so far has about 20 cars in this category and essentially accomodates race dedicated vehicles such as the UAS slot car and WYKKEDS car. So if you are bringing a "race car" with gutted interiors, or less than pretty paint, then please feel free to still enter the show n shine. You may win!

    You will receive more info and a program booklet in your package on check in at the Friday, at Ramada resort. Or PM me with questions if something is unclear.

    Cheers

    I was going to ask what the deal is with driving an unregistered vehicle. If the road is closed to the public then it is ok. In 2007 I left it on the trailer.
    Hany info on roll cage paddinng, I am getting this sorted.

    Here is a map

    John, go to the link below for an outline of the Show n Shine setup. Trailers will be able to be parked in either Bass Avenue or Findlay st. From there, the cars can be unloaded and driven into position for the show n shine. Trailers must be parked appropriately or face parking fines.

    Cheers

    Also what is the rule with fire extinguishers and expiry dates enforced? Also any clarification on expiry as in is it 3 years past expiry or....? With some of us travelling so far it would be best not to have any surprises.

    Just the reg's .......

    The powder in most dry-powder extinguishers settles and gets hard after 3 years and if not shaken will not funciton properly - at least that is what CAMS will say.

    Pretty much.

    Give it a good kick and shake every few months and as long as the pressure is OK they should last ages.

    No Island in the sun

    For me this year.:(
    Turbo that was rebuilt has shit itself again, has done very little work since the rebuild, no track days, sat in the garage most of the time.
    was getting the tune checked before i left for down south and it let go on the dyno,
    Be interested to see what the rebuilders have to say as to what was the cause, no doubt it will be my fault, all these so called experts are good at passing the buck.
    Only positive, is i saved myself a drive to Phillip island where it probably would have let go on the first lap and i don't want to even think about the nightmare of getting it all back to Sydney.

    Shit Ron you out too?

    Likewise I'm glad the tailshaft failed in Wahroonga rather than halfway to PI.

    Cold comfort though.

    Want to have a combined part out sale with me?

    Ron, I hope it wasn't me that jinxed you. My car is still on the hoist and won't be finished in time for PI, so I was thinking the other day of giving you a ring to see if you needed a PSA for the trip down.

    Hope the guys that built the turbo put their hand in their pockets and not yours.

    (not as rich as you guys think :p hence why all the work on the car this year has been done by me.)

    still need to setup oil coolers
    tune
    and my power steering pump is making noise and cavitating/jerking at low revs.

    not rushing my car for any event

    Alex let me know if you need an extra pair of hands. I can come past after work & help out if needed
