    Awsome day!

    Was the best track day for me on record. R-Comps made a HUGE difference and lapping with Franz in Nath's zed was the best of fun. Hahah Andrew just had to sit and watch, I think that came under the top 5 things for the day. :p Mike I'd be happy to give you my phone for a day mate you just can't get any peace in this world. :wacko: Nice to meet Scotty for the first time, you have an awsome zed! We need some more zeds out there ppl so next time we'll give you some more warning...

    I'm trying to get my bloody signature to work so here it goes! (its just a shot of my car around the track)

    All the best Guys!

    i definatly want in for the next one

    but this one kinda was sprung on me so didn't have alot of time to organise myself, let us know when the next one comes round, i'll be more than happy to provide another zed for the track. :thumbsup:

    You didn't even come down to have a look like you said!

    Next one organised by AFARCC is Aug 20 at Collie. Unfortunately its fully booked out and the waiting list is longer than the entry list!

    I'll be competing at Barbagallo Raceway on Saturday in the AMR Speed Event Series. Hit the track at about 9.30am, will be there all day.

    hehehe yeah well.

    Tyres were pretty shagged (ie 5% left in them) 2.5 year old Bridgestone RE540's. When I put them on Nathans car that morning they were all different shades of blue! haha

    I was driving Nathans zed on the weekend; my zed was at home with a blown clutch master cylinder -> slave cylinder line! I don't know of anyone that has blown this; has anyone here? ...all good now and ready for competition this weekend. Nathans zed was making about 500hp at the wheels last weekend in those videos.

    Melb in 2007 - looks like a possibility - as is the Dutton next year! :)

    Draco The 1000 Man....

    Wooksta did his a month or so ago, and a couple of others did theirs recently,
    when he had his line made up the guy had just done another the day before.. :wacko:

    Everyone else I've spoken to has never heard of it happening before. Specially from it seperating from the crimp.

    I like the "in the zone" comment.....

  11. FranZ


    Well I apologise...

    ...I was expecting someone to come up and say "Hi Im Ash off the forum" but didn't get it so assumed you didn't show. My bad.

    "in the zone" lol was a fun track day, nothing serious and even if it was, I'd still stop and have a chat to ya!

    Sorry Franz

    thanks, its not a big deal, no appology necesary. My bad for not coming up for a chat. i'll catch up on the "slightly south cruise", if your still going, i'll be there.

    I'm seriously thinking about getting into ameture motorsport racing, my dad always wanted me to get into it, and the track day was just enough to get me going. so i'll have good long chat at the cruise.

    but thanks franz for the invite and for wanting to help me out at the track. really apreciate it.

    catch ya soon

    Great vids Franz

    Boy do I love the sound of that S/C S13 it sounded great on the day but even nicer on the footage. It was great watchin u drive from the outside but even better seeing the race lines that u took. Some great footage over all.

    Cheers Josh

    Tektrader Z32 Hoe, service me baby

    I watched all the vids Franz

    great day by the looks of it.

    Tell you wat though. I just get the drifting thing !!! :wacko:

    It would be enough for me to be circuit racing, hammering every corner.
  17. FranZ


    I assume you mean you don't get drifting?

    Each to their own.

    I know the older generation don't understand the point of it nor see the attraction in it. *shrug*

    I enjoy both "grip" and "drift".
