    Well what a weekend with a great turn out, plenty of volvo track action and a great social evening or two. I'd like to thank all that attended to make it such a great event where records were broken and PB's smashed much to my delight. It was also a pleasure to finally meet Tim Williams and have him present when my 15g powered car smashed it's way into the low 13's with a 13.4 second run @104.3 mph terminal PB and then backed up with further 13's runs, pics and vids uploading at present and will be here soon

    I wish, then I would have done it last year, just been progressive improvement, chipping away one mod at a time and the new afr gauge has really helped and pin pointed that I was over fueling to compensate of the air flow and charge improvements. I could possibly sqeeze a bit more with 4.4ecu mapping and possibly a larger maf......nice to hear from you though, pity you weren't there to see it and you'd have loved the black cossie that was running.

    Yep we need to give it a god farewell, I'm thinking beating Woody with a 15g would be an amazing end to our shakey time and a few fireworks etc.

    Was a cracking weekend.

    Epic night on the lash on Saturday, finishing with myself and Adrian still going at 5 on Sunday morning
    Followed by Sunday funday.

    Was an honour to have my arse handed to me on a plate by Adrian on his record breaking run.
    I couldn't believe what I was seeing when I collected my ticket afterwards!

    Well done Matey

    That was an epic launch.

    Not so much from the coal fired locomotive in pursuit

    My favourite vid on your channel (apart from this) is the one where the derv shows up that black MR2 lol
