    Spent the today at Heathcote drags, and had an absolute ball!!
    I had never been their to race before, and it is such a laid back, non rushed atmosphere.

    Got a fair few runs in, some good and others, well not so good.

    But the most consistent runs ended up being the 3 fastest.
    11.4616 @ 125 MPH
    11.4708 @ 126 MPH
    11.4831 @ 130 MPH

    I guess the standard issue was had racing a manual, and that's trying not to bog down or wheel spin off the line.
    Spinning was more of the issue, just to heavy with the right foot.:br:

    Had an awesome day, and would recommend it to anyone.

    Cheers.

    Hi All.
    Took the Zed for another few runs at Heathcote yesterday.
    Another great day out, was a lot busier than last time I was their, with a big range of cars, but in saying that got an opportunity to get a fair few runs in.

    Improved a little on the last time, the best couple of runs were:
    11.26 @ 122 MPH
    11.32 @ 125 MPH

    Getting so close to the 10s :)

    Cheers.

    Lol ;)
    I’ve got 3
    1 registered 2+0TT as mentioned above,
    Bought it with a seized engine, upon a closer look it had 1 snapped rod, as in it was in 2 pieces, and 1 rod that was so bent it was jammed in the cylinder, I built an engine for that, and that’s what I drive today.
    The one 2+2 I’m building with the single turbo.
    And I have another 2+0 that is a roller only, sitting in my folks shed, has had all body work done and it’s in high fill.
    Have owned that for about 16 years.
    Not sure what’s going to happen with that.
    The old man has a pretty trick carby 289 Windsor I’ve been trying to convince him to drop in it..... just for somthing different

    And let’s face it, a lot of us spend so much time on these cars, and don’t drive them for what their worth.
    And that’s fine, but I built it to be used (or abused) depending on which way you look at it lol

    And it’s of coarse a lot safer with better results to do it at the track, being a drag strip or circuit, it’s so much fun
