Only way I could think of to avoid being crucified by the forum nazis who don't want anything here not strictly related to 4WD's but....

Anyone heading to Winton for the V8's this weekend?

With the rain around at the moment I might to lock the hubs in just to get out of the carpark...
Monday I have Friday on my mind...

G'Day Michael,

From the EO Homepage,

"ExplorOz/ is an interactive site for people interested in camping, four wheel driving and caravanning in Australia. Used by 441,397 readers per month (May 06), this is the leading reference for Australian travellers!"

I assume you'll be "travelling" to Winton, won't you? haha! Might be a strecth but you're pretty close to being approprtiate! haha!

Oh and no I'm not going! ;-)
Cheers
Scoey!

Hey, we had 0.5mm a couple of weeks back. Rained for 3 mins and 20 secs. I checked.
They could send some this way, those bananas need all they can get so we can afford them again.

Heard some raided a banana farm and stole 4 tonnes the other day.

The local fruit shop got broken into the other day, they took all the bananas and left the cash in the till.

We only had a small amount last night and might get a little bit more. I reckon you'll be right as the ground is still pretty dry

Ho-Hummm..I think I'll be washing my hair, or mowing the lawn. I used to be half keen on the Touring Cars scene- but lately how boring!!
Control tyres, control fuel, 'blueprint' rules with Commodores running Ford based V8 blocks, Ford based front ends and Ford based diffs (although thats been since Commodores started racing). Control Diff & gearbox ratios and so on. The Ford brigade complaing that their splitter is 2mm smaller and the rest of the crap.
Their rule book is thicker than Formula V...
The only thing that might brighten up the (so called) Supercar scene will be when the 'press to pass' system is sorted out and utilized..

G'Day signman,

I haent' been folloowing the V8's for a couple of years now. What's this "press to pass" thing you're talking about? Sounds interesting! Not a shot of NoS or anything is it? haha!

Scoey!

Yea Scoey
I guess it would be similar to the Indy cars, where they can get a limited boost for a limited time. However, since the V8s aren't turbo- I imagine the 'system' will be similar to the normally aspirated A1 Grand Prix cars..In A1 the cars are allowed a number of seconds of 'Press to pass' time, based on the length of the race.

The only Winton I'd like to be at this weekend is the one where 'Banjo' started the Waltzing Matilda thing.
Can have much more fun there than watching V8s try to destroy themselves.

It's a good excuse to have the boys around, fire up the BBQ, sink a few tinnies and talk crap while watching on the big screen.

GO FORD!
