    Yeah really heavy rain starting late Saturday. Some of the roads behind Mount Tambo might be off limits, and if it's really wet, the road through Beechmont can be a little dangerous even at low speeds.

    Should this event be postponed? what do those that will be attending think?

    Postponed is a bit drastic! We can go slow through the rough bits or skip certain roads if need be?

    So does anyone know where I can get my clutch replaced on the Gold Coast tomorrow? I'm worried it's going to fail climbing up Mt. Tambourine

    You could try Gold Coast Autocare at Nerang, they're 300zx specialists and could at least point you in the right direction.

    Ive called Gavin from Autotech, and posted a thread in the Wanted section.

    I just need a standard replacement clutch but need it in the next 24 hours, I was going to order one from the US but with obvious time constraints I'll have to source something local.

    where autosalon? I'm guessing this is one of those events where all the cars are full of LCD screens in places you can't actually view them? :D

    Cruise will only be cancelled if it's raining Sunday Morning.


    Please if you're coming along send me your Mobile via PM, I will contact everyone in the morning via txt or call to let you know if it's going ahead.
