Racing in reverse, now that would be fun. Sometimes it's just nice to have things on the car thot actually work for a change. I do have occasional delusions that I might like to get it street registered one day and enter the Aussie version of Drag Week.

As a coincidence they have just updated our track regs and I could run down to 10.5 if it was street registered, currently 11.0 is my cutoff before needing a cage.

Well the shifter worked great for 2 runs before the cable decided it get friendly with the headers, I guess I will try again when I get a new cable, a bit shorter one might be the ticket.

Good thing it was half price entry for pre 1990 cars tonight.

New 4' shifter cable installed today, 7 runs tonight without any melted bits, so that seems to be the ticket for keeping it off the exhaust.



Also picked up the new Quicktime Pro tires, 27" x 10.5" x 15", note that 10.5" is the section width and not the tread width, the latter is 9". 



I will get them installed for the next outing in two weeks time, it was 1/8th mile radial theme night tonight, so heads up pro-tree rather than the usual 1/4 mile stuff. Managed to win my three rounds against my mate in his Aussie Valiant (think Dodge Dart) even though he is usually a bit quicker than me.
