not much to update on the tt.Took it to dubbo car show and got 2nd in the go to whoa and 4th in the burnouts losing the rear bar in the process.Im on the hunt for a xr/xt ute thats half decent to put the motor in with a c4 and straight lpg to get it engineered.Pics from dubbo are in the events/cruise area...

reattached the rear bar today got to love text screws,put my alloy hub caps back on the back and took it for a drive around the block with muffler box and tail pipe off.Its sounds great with turbo's spooling and waste gate noise right under the drivers seat but isnt noisy once the turbos start spooling takes the bark out of the note...

Just got back from liverpool after seeing the liverpool crew for a while but the main reason for the trip was to pick up some mickey t ET slicks for the old girl.It does the quarter in 13.1 on 205/65/15 so how much time do the slicks save on the strip ? Would i get 0.25-0.50 sec gain with the slicks on ? any thoughts on this....

Depends on your 60 foot time the last time you raced, what was it? Should be able to get it down to the mid to high 1 second mark with slicks as is with your stally etc.

What was the 60 foot when you ran the 13.1?

I'd probably say a 12.8 would be on the cards with a good launch!
