Willowbank test n tune this wednesday!

hey peoples i put my new shocks in on the weekend, consequently the car goes much harder through the gears, so im heading out to willowbank to get a last few runs in before i get my 3.9 diff, so i can tell what/if any improvement the new diff makes...

i think it starts at about 500pm, cost is about $30 if i remember correctly, and you need a helmet, long sleeve shirt and long pants.

there is no scrutineering as far as i know, i have been there twice before and they never even checked the tyres...

am i going to see anyone out there?

Re: Willowbank test n tune this wednesday!

well that was a success...

NOT!!

it got rained out - as i was lined up to run.

Dammit!

saw Grunter there - mmmm thats a bloody nice car he has! and he is a top bloke too :)

and there was a white EB there with a body kit and no rear wing- it looked the goods, i loved it, couldnt find the owner though :(

next one is two weeks from now, the 6th of august - lets see some e-series owners there!!!

Bloody rain, that will teach me for cleaning my car on the day.

I'll be there for the next one, hopefully have a some more time for a chin wag.

That white EB did sound rather nice.

Looks like TwinPiston is attempting to gather some FF'ers for the next meet on the 6th. Brisbane Drag Racing Night

Re: Willowbank test n tune this wednesday!

i've taken mine yes, mine only managed a 17.2 (40 degrees, dual fuel and only 4 runs)
i beleive i could have JUST scraped a 16 if i had of stalled it up enough, but on the same day another ALMOST stock EF managed a 16.6.
so a low 16 would be expected from a stocky in decent conditions :)
