Re: Street/Salt BSTR

Been slack on the updates but not much has happened anyway. As a result of that I'll be at the lake with an observers hat on. Plan to fly down to NSW then travel out with a mate for the week. Both of us are really looking forward to the trip, and meeting people out at the lake! Just need to set up a...

Re: Street/Salt BSTR

I have decided to pull the pin on my quest to run my rod in 2012 due to the work load of my Project Management business severely curtailing the available time to prepare for running some serious speeds in D/STR. Tough decision to make... I've had the same thoughts, been busy lately and not getting ...

Re: Street/Salt BSTR

Um... If it was Dads and I was 17, I would say, 'I dunno Dad! It just went bang, I didn't do anything, honest!" Lets just say I was being a bit silly on a private road :roll: 2.5 ay... The fella with the white one reckons I'll be lucky to pull the 3.25 with the power I got. I'll need to rob a few ba...

Re: Street/Salt BSTR

Minor 'Whoops..." moment. Broke the pinion support clean out of the carrier. Gearset has teeth missing now and is junk. Not that old either, oh well. So now I'm looking for an open centre. Just another thing to add to the list I spose :roll: http://i1098.photobucket.com/albums/g365/huge32/IMG_1182.j...

Re: Street/Salt BSTR

Well the week nearly ended up unproductive. When I got home I was all excited and keen to get balls deep into the box swap. And then- If we listened to all the helpful naysayers we wouldn't have finished. Yep, some constructive critisim/oposing ideas were put to me. I then spent the next 3 days in a...

Re: Street/Salt BSTR

Try and model a seat and human in Race suit, Helmet and HANS device to scale then fit them in the cage with correct clearances. Tape measure and twenty mins.....This may help get the cage size right because we get bulky with all the shit on and save you building it twice. Chris This is the plan Chr...

Re: Street/Salt BSTR

Didn't have a lot of time last break for the roadster (work 7on 7 off roster) as I was helping my housemate get his new blown motor in his roadster :mrgreen: Got it going and it is a little sweety! After that I got back into the clutch set-up. http://i1098.photobucket.com/albums/g365/huge32/IMG_1034...

Re: Street/Salt BSTR

Scotto, there seems to be 2 types that get there, (lake G) The ones that try it once and never come back, and the types that get hooked. Be warned. Any other disese you have ever had is no where near as addictive....... Chris Yeah Chris, I wonder which type I'll be :shock: Just what I need, another...
