    Ok guys I want to do another drag day at heathcote. I have organised myself a set of MT ET streets and it's going to be at least 20c cooler than last time so we should be able to rip out some decent times.

    Proposed date is for June:
    However the racing calendar for June is not out yet, so just want to see if there is any interest.

    As usual it's 11am till 4 pm

    Long sleeve shirt and pants, closed shoes and a helmet are a must.
    Also batt tie down and overflow bottle in working order is also on the scrutineers to check list. The most important bit of info: entry $50

    Once you have a date organised, we can put a thread in "Coming Events"

    So if you are free on that date come to Heathcote raceway to see what your Zed can do. food and drinks are available on the day also and last time I was there they were all $2 :)

    I'll be there whichever date is chosen :)
    And mate, the fee for racing is actually $60.00, no eftpos, must be cash.

    In moderation of course! And at least "eight hours between the bottle and the throttle" :p

    The last 2 times I've been to Heathcote drags, several Geelong crew have came up to Bendigo the day before
    and stayed the night at my place before going to the strip. (Heathcote drags is about 20 minutes from here :cool: )
    Some good bonding and information exchange to be had that way, socialising and checking / comparing our cars.

    I'm OK to do it again, got plenny room here for guests and Zeds :)

    I'll be there again. Hopefully racing this time. Should give me enough time to sort out this friggen timing issue! My wife gave me the ok to pinch her LSD so should have minimal taction issues :) Set of adjustable cam gears should be here before the end of the week too.
    Mick, since this thing is an auto and silver how about a friendly match up? :)

    Sweet. So far I'm just digging away at obvious and little things.
    Tried 3 different ecus, 3 map sensors, swapped TPS, about to try coolant temp sensor tonight. Soon there will be no bits left on the supra as I'm ripping bits off to try and solve this problem.
    On the up side I am fixing minor problems, like high idle, etc. Got so many earth points the car has gained 10kg from cables alone. The timing appears to be coming down. Last night I installed a new o2 sensor which dropped timing a few degrees. No idea why as it controls fuel.
    Can't wait to race. Will be fun, two fairly stock cars up against each other :)

    ye sounds good.

    Here is the 10.5 i did few weeks back. Now car is getting a full motor built so i can swap the motor in a few weeks. So should be ready when this day happens.

    Theres the vid for anyone that cares. Hope to see some fast zed's out on the day too!

    I'm getting closer with my timing problem.
    Brytech hit the nail on the head. It appears to be related to the coolant temp sensor! Should be good to run. Hoping for a low 13.

    iCER, what mods does the falcon currently have? 10sec is an impressive time.

    Just watched the vid of your BA, kudos to you mate. Mighty quick :thumbup:

    I was planning to be there on that day but the clouds were so low you could touch them so I figured
    it would piss down rain by the time I got there. Wrong. Good day for it after all.

    See you on Sunday :)

    Ross, I got raped badly by an XR6T at Heathcote earlier this year :eek:

    Bracing myself for more of the same, but if you and I can pair off and do low 13's I'll be happy :)
