probably too scared to leave it where they are staying 'cause someone might steal/key it. would be nice to see them do a lap of the streets though.

There was a beautiful mustang with a red/orange pearl paint job with a sticker on the back window that read "Stone chips are the real trophies" and we saw him almost every night crusing round and this thing was imaculate. I agree though, a lot of the supposid "Street driven" cars were no where to be seen on the street

Dyno comp was pretty sweet on the sunday. I really enjoy it as I see the engineering side of it more than anything else. The effort they go to in some of the cars is awesome. It was good to see Jake Edwards torana roll out over a 1000rwhp and the way TRYHRD is put together. Its a masterpiece. Gus Nichols dubber was tough. Jake was saying if the ute held together they where going to "lean" on it for the second and third run and shoot for 2150rwhp.

im pretty sure TRYHRD won because they go off ur 2 best runs like a overall average.. guess they do that to make sure cars dnt just wind up the boost so the can do a hollywood run lol..

and dont think money is a issue with craig as his every day car is a brand new ferrari lol.

Seriously mate if you're not interested just shut up and press your back button.

The guy obviously can afford it and does this because he enjoys it....

Who are you to say what he should and shouldn't do with HIS money.

That car has broken a lot of new ground in Australia in many ways, after going over it in detail at the nats it's absolutely amazing the way the car is setup.

It is a great bit of engineering IMHO.

well u cant exactly drive those cars anywhere on the street...so all it can be used for is to chuck on a dyno...i dunno just seems like a lot of money to just throw it on a dyno for 3 turns and then either blow something or make a mad amount of power which is pretty much unuseable!
