It would be a great time with a better driver but its my car so the driver/car combo is good for a 14.5 I reckon. I'd be happy cause that is 1.3 better than my previous best.

Going to be hard to get down to WAW on time due to finishing work later than usual for the next few weeks. Then the inevitable will happen the wife will give birth to the twins and then it will be ages before I go down. I'll try for next wednesday or it won't happen for a long while.

Just make sure you get in dead on 5 o clock. Its been packed out recently and full up at 5.45.

Wouldnt want you to drive for an hour or more just to be denied. 8-) I'll be there to say g'day. :wink:

Thanks Frank for the offer. I did contemplate someone else giving it a go for me but I can't let anyone else drive my baby. Besides with you driving it will give an artificial ET from the driver/car combo. It really should be owner/driver.

Well didn't end up going down to Kwinana.

Looks like it would be some time next year.

Sorry to everyone who was keen to see a 1/4 mile time. On the other hand I have $10,000 worth of baby bonus coming in a month.

Might be able to wing a grand or two onto the car.

What else could I get done for say $2000 max?

Nice thread Pete - read it from start to finish :)

Good to see something done tastefully and properly (not saying others haven't here).

Kudos to seeing some 5Ls getting some well deserved respect :)

Cheers,
Steve
