        Who else is going, because my car is neither Power nor Handling!!!

        It's not cheating if my rear seats are missing is it? 'Cos they will be... I mean they are!

          Thought you'd popped the pill? If so you should have more power especially in combination with the air filter.

          My only mods are TMR springs and Whiteline rear swaybar.

          Maybe I should have said...

          Silver vs Red

          Who will win?!!!

          Weight reduction is not cheating, AWD is cheating!! Best to keep the front passenger seat in, just in case you wish to take an instructor with you... Also means the Airbag system won't have a hissy fit.

          Have you got a fire extinguisher in yet?

            Haha yes cheap power, pill popped (~15PSI) and K&N but on average tyres.

            Will remove the rear seats but keep the fronts (pretty sure it's illegal to drive without the front pax seat installed).

            Let me state from the onset I want to be able to drive home safely afterwards so I won't be going that hard

            Fire Extinguisher has been in for ages since Winton

                I thought Peter implied that you had entered (Power!), as I thought you probably would have!! Yeah need to lodge entry pretty quickly, they filled 52 spots out of 50 (don't know how that equates).

                      Well Done Peter, best in class!!!

                      I found it difficult NOT to be competitive and baby the colt around the courses, and just smelling the burnt rubber/brakes/clutch aroma in the air, well....heheh.

                      Watching the Jazz vs 86 matchup was great fun and the 86 driver was gracious in defeat! There were many good battles!

                      Some photos of the day, sorry didn't take any on the Wang runs.

                            Yeah man it was a blast!

                            Good thing about events like these is you can record it, upload to youtube and share, and not worry about authorities coming to take your car and license away

                              Vic Rcolts seem to be multipling at EXE events! And I know there are more keen to participate.
                              Spectators are more than welcome.
