Did I imagine it, or were there 2 grooves in the road to Wakefield Park....about 135mm wide:?::smilegrin:

Hey Matt, just been reading through your post for the second time. Just a quick question re your gearbox - is it a rebuilt 6v swing axle box or a 12v swing axle box.

Spewing I missed out on seeing you run a Wakey Matt!!

1:20's are good numbers on that setup. I'm chasing 1:15's on Monday providing the Weather permits!!

Are you making the trek down to WSID next weekend?

I used a new case for the tranny rebuild, a VW casting in mag but with extra strengthing ribs, but essentially you could call it a 12V.

Thanks Zac, I was stoked when you compare the times to some of the others running, especially considering I had only about 4 hot laps.....
Yep, she's ready for another thrash on the 1/4 mile.....hope to make the pizza run on Friday night, then racing Saturday. :) Looking forward to it.

Overdue for another update....


Bluey's little 2 litre is going great, performance and driveability is just as I'd hoped, strong and smooth

A week or two ago a few dubbers got together at Willowbank Dragway for a test and tune so as I'd had no tracktime to date (not for lack of trying that's for sure), Bluey and I went to play.
It was a great night even though we only had two passes due to a major track oil-down.

My two passes ...

1st 2nd
R/T .273 .513
60' 1.929 1.909
1/8 8.746 8.795
MPH 78.76 78.73
1/4 13.76 13.81
MPH 96.10 95.86

And here's the vid thanks to Dave Richardson
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CsUJdsDbM7c&feature=share 

Pretty happy with the results and with about a 500km round trip, not only is Bluey a cool daily, but also a top performer

Thanks for the comments fellas.

Anyone is welcome to come for a spin in Bluey as it is the performance and 'capable all rounder' that I am promoting with this car, any quality built car can do this and I like to share the joy.... :)
