Good old pineapple reamers punching well above their weight considering the distance. I'm a bit disappointed we haven't got more from SA, seeing it's just over the fence....

Had a cry for help from a Nats entrant tonight, his motor is blowing all its oil out and he can’t figure out why- so I have lent him the old motor out of the Rattler which ran fine apart from the oil pressure on start up drama- so a rattle can rebuild and a new oil pump will hopefully get him sorted in the next week Image

Flash one unna ImageImageImage

Loaded and ready for pickup tomorrow

Well done sir.

Reminds me of the old stories of Bathurst, where the works teams would "borrow" parts from the general public paddock parking to keep the racers going.

Cheers,
