Re: Shock absorber selection

Doesnt more caster give corner jacking if your in the shit and need to turn the wheels ? Lowering the VW, as with most cars you lose caster... we're putting back what we've lost plus VWs are light in the nose - only around 160-180kg over each front wheel - so it's not like we're lifting a Chev bloc...

Re: Fire system nozzle positions

Hi... I have one nozzle either side, mid-way up the rear firewall in the engine bay (2 total) aimed at carbs, one in-cabin nozzle under steering column aimed at my nuts.

Re: Shock absorber selection

Mick, I simply have ex-wreckers coil-over struts and Billies under my Bug, with poly bushes. Standard fast road/hill-climb stuff. I reckon you will be fine with gas KYBs or similar all-round. Run plenty of caster... two shims ;)

Re: reconsider please

yeah good idea for the re-introduction of a sub130MPH 'street class' but it does open up discussion about safety

I've already blown lots of money building a dedicated 'salt' VW but it would have been far easier to simply run my other road-reg track VW for a year or three

Re: AUSTRALIA Snowy Mountain 1000

Hi folks the Snowy 1000 is on again 22 Nov 2014 at Cooma Airport in the NSW Snowy Mountains

Last year, this was a well-run event with a good variety of cars, from my Beetle to Commodores/Falcons and even a Pagani Zonda! Google that one!

Hoping to go faster and quicker this year!

Re: Rule Clarification-Requirement clarification request?

wow, RGN must've said something nasty via PM because I reckon everything he discussed in this thread was insightful, clear - even when the rules aren't - and relevant, even when given 'attitude' by other participants So, am I allowed to have my trusted mate sit in MY car when I am tuning/working on ...

Checklist?

I know there is a chase/support vehicle checklist (lights, tarps, fire extinguishers, radio etc) but is there a more general checklist of camper/competitor requirements?

Will it be mailed, or posted up here (or FB)?

In particular:
Do we need a personal dunny on each camp site?

Volnteer register?

Hi folks, How do I log-in for my volunteer session? I recall last year (I think?) an on-line volunteer register?
