Well guys if it's a decent day weather wise and you don't mind an old bastard turning up with his 12 year old car nut son (on his birthday) I'll be there for the cruise at least. Route suggestion for y'all: Dee Why-Bayview-McCarr's Ck road- West Head (but happy to go anywhere really). If it's raining don't ask: I'll be wrapping presents and blowing up party balloons at home....

Interesting... I feel like a bit of a cruise

I've got the Make-A-Wish Foundation Ball on Saturday night, so I'm not sure how coherent I'll be on Sunday. No promises, but I'll try to come along.

Did I miss the start time?

edit: oh, and I *HATE* McCarr's Creek road. It's not a fun drive at all, unless it has been resurfaced in the last 2 years or so...

Sweet, this is looking like it could potentially be a 10 car plus turnout, hopefully my mate with an AW E90 should be able to make it too!

Is the car park usually full or should we all be able to find a spot?

Oh, I am happy wherever we drive.

Cheers.

There is usually heaps of space, so we should be able plenty of room for everyone to park in a row!

The PROcede went in last Saturday. It makes quite a difference. The problem is with the continuous rain we have had over the last week, I cannot get traction at all when accelerating. Hopeless.

We will meet up again Daniel and I will show it to you then. Hey, I might even still have the scars on my fingers from the install too.

Cheers.

Thats around 380+hp at the wheels or about 500 at the crank, a fairly huge jump in power considering you aren't allowed huge modifications to run in the 24 hour.

Dude, I've posted countless times before Bavariacars at Gladesville are the Drexler distributor for the LSD diffs that were used in the Bathurst cars. If you want one you should give them a call and get one fitted, I imagine it'd make a huge difference if you were going to track it.

I gave them a call a couple of weeks ago and spoke to Herbert. He said the diff was $5,000 and the installation would be $700-$800.

Could that be right?

Cheers.
