    Good day had at the Skyline drag day at Sydney Dragway today.
    East coast Zed and myself represented the Zeds, think i might have finished in 3rd place according to the PA late in the day.
    Had eleven runs accross the day, could have had many more if i wanted, give the middle of the day a miss due to it being very hot and not conducive to good times.
    Car run like a swiss watch all day no probs, can't say the same for Graham though, had to put it on a flat top to get it home, think after all those runs you done the clutch cried enough Graham.
    Run a 11.346 et 122 mph with a 1.76 being my best 60 footer, down on my previous best of 1.51, was having a few wheel spin issues getting off the line,
    had the rear tyres down to 12lb trying to get traction.
    Vid of the run.
    will post some pics tomorrow.:)

    Some pics

    Wiz can multitask, he can walk and look at the camera, at the same time!

    Wiz and Graham

    Noice burnout

    The crowd went nuts over this burnout!

    Oh the humanity of it? Sad for Graham, hope it was a simple problem.

    Videos will be posted later. It was a great day and awesome to see the young fella peddle so fast 11.3ET

    UNIQUE ZED Zed Racing World

    Smokin. Big well done Ron, all the gang here are impressed.


    I think it's safe to say that come next winter a 10.999 is VERY achievable.
    Truly awesome - gotta be happy with that Ron, well done mate.

    Weren't Blue Ovals allowed on track, Geoffo...?? What a good mate you are - not wanting to show up Ron's best-ever!!
    Well done, Wiz! Last time I saw The Machine was at a tech day having all the trim and seats re-fitted... :)
    And a big welcome to Graham - achieving membership of MY 'On Back of Truck' Club! The joy of membership, Graham, is that (hopefully) you only get club attendance ONCE.... membership fees are just getting TOO bloody high! Commiserations, mate! :)

    Good work Ron, 10's are around the corner ;) :br:

    Wish I had mine finished for yesterday, in saying that its only turbos and upper plenum left to do then just have to put the car back together again.
