So my neighbors 15 year old had an all night party on friday and more visitors this morning at 5 am
 I got up early and mowed the lawn. Ok Captthundarr
funny tho, the mower wouldn't run properly so I had to take the muffler off

Esprit de corps amongst neighbors is what keeps Preston "tidy".

Well done, citizen!   :cheers:

Two stroke and goat shouldn't be in the same paragraph sorry, your not from Bourke are you?


I'm confused Dr G, I looked up the definition of unit and didn't find anything that described me┬┐
The closest I got was; "a standard measure used in calculating alcohol intake and its effects"

OK, unit, more help here my pumpkin sconed friend...

http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=unit

Can't help but notice this thread has been "unflagged"...is it because we are irreverent, wholly unfocused on racing or is it because we are pinching views from folks who are seeking recompense for something , I dunno.

Just in case anyone thinks we aren't focused on racing I wish to reassure you and save you the pain and suffering of labouring under a misconception  that there are things going on, but none of those are worth airing publicly here.

There is good news at the Spirit of Sunshine Landspeed laboratory, Possum Park and Idiot Wonderland and we expect that work may indeed begin soon on the 2014 campaign. There seems little chance that the October Gairdner meet will eventuate due to the lake still  being wet. There was some doubt as to whether it was a suitable event for us as we don't have the data we required to make the decision as to whether we could step further down in our gearing and still attain a higher speed on a short course which is what the meet intended to run.

As it stands we will be running the Haltech and 2.28:1 final gearing with the same motor we ran this year. There are a few little changes I wish to make to the car, the new steering column arrangement needs to be twitched slightly, the gearshift and chute also will need to be seen to , other than that it all looks pretty simple.

aahhaahahahahahahaha :-D :-D :-D

Sadly I won't be making the trip to Bonneville for Speedweek, Simon "Double Page Spread" Davidson" will be there and is taking Boris Viskovic who many of you are familiar with along, The Colonel too will be here in Melbourne, we may well have a little get together , toast the salt, and Carmen's while yer all at it....... 

Few understand what I'm trying to do but they vastly outnumber those who understand why...................
