Why would you bother? The answer is fucked if Id know.
when i made a deal with subzero i made them sign a contract saying that they wont run my car not even to check that it drove straight. not that a contract from subzero means anything anymore..
fark letting the workshop get all the glory lol

seems like contracts dont mean jack **** to them,i hope you get back whats yours but some how i dont think itll happen,there just scum bags that deserve whats coming to them.

its funny how the law works,if you have a regerstered pty ltd company and you go under and decldre bankrupt then you dont have to pay your creditors back,its harse but its the law,all they will get is a 7 year default on applying for loans etc.....

i saw a documentry on mario and his car (gtr-700) and if im not mistaken i can rememeber hearing that he has been banned from all types of motorsport, that been the reason why he gets somebody else to drive it constantly down the strip. i could be wrong though!

P.S your car is hot and i cant wait to see it down the strip

Hey mate so what sort of power are you looking at from your setup I was looking at the tube chassis celica in america with the 2j in it 11:1 compress and 55psi hardcore 6.5s @ 220 mph ! Obviously you wouldn't want to go this hardcore being a private entity but you would have to be looking for mid 7's with 180mph or so wouldn't you or are you just going to start slowly and see how far you can go .... ?

hey dude,im looking to run into the 7's with this chassis,the power im looking to make is about 1200+ with no nitrous,ideally once up and running with the bottle 1400 is the figure we were looking to make.

the celica your talking about is the titan racing,yeah i was interested in the car since its for sale but a us125k price tag is out of my range for the time being,titan recently sold an engine to rotormaster that ran 6.6's for 40k.

i have started looking at buying a gtr r34 shell to turn into a full chrome moly tube car and drop my running gear into but thatll probably be 12 months away.

my chassis is very simple and i was informed that IF the car does better a low 8 that for my own safety it shouldnt be raced,its more suited for running no more than 170mph...so ill just roll with that.

Back to what you were sayin to me yesterday , Re: your 33x14 " Rubber
A guy I know has same tyre on a blown alky Camaro and runs 7.20's all day at 190 something Mph , So really if you get your clutch setup right you should have no problems for now, Also if ya want I'll lend you a Dvd with a camaro (very similar to mine) has Single turbo BBC and that Fu...cker is only on 10.5" wide rubber and reels off 7.46 @ 196 no problems it sits flat doesn't even lift a wheel just like a pro stocker , Car runs a Lenco trans !!

I think we're all hangin to see this car go 7's

the fastest converter car is running deep into the 6's so i can see why people waste heaps of money on a manual box. buy a decent box from the states and you wont have probs and they come with warranty. just look at the street tired supras running powerglides and easy 7's & 8's

I know of a couple 7 sec cars with glides and both would benefit from a manual trans, You see when leaving the line both cars get tyre shake if not carefull with their launch, with an manual trans they could dial in some slip into the clutch so it doesn't hit the tyres so hard too much you burn the clutch but thats how it is when competing on that level

if only it were that easy. tyre shake in a manual car is something a lot of people cant get around, not only in oz but also in the states.

anyway, all the best to omy not matter the trans choice
