Grafton Hillclimb

I attended the Grafton Sporting Car Club's hillclimb on the weekend for the first time. It was loads of fun, and the first time I had my car out on a track. I managed to get under 60 seconds which was my goal for the day but hope to be a lot closer to the Evo's next time. I headed down with some top blokes from EvoOz and made a weekend of it. I can't wait to go back with improved suspension and tires, I just need to develop the business case in order to get it past the Minister for Finance. I think I'll try the improved safety angle... You can see how tight and technical the track is below.

Dyno Day Result

I organised a second OZVR4 dyno day for today and it went very well. 19 Cars were there (17 8th gen and 2 6th gen). Shots from the day will hopefully end up in High Performance Imports ( Here's my graph, I was 4th for day, which is pretty respectable seeing as I have no aftermarket fuel control like 1st, 2nd and 3rd do :)
