Its a big year and cars will be running at full noise for over 1000km of special stages around the Central North Island.

Thank you Ms Bronzee. Targa maps are in Classic Car, four stages on Monday all North of Hamilton. We have finally got our car in competition condition after dealing with incorrect parts for the gearset from Quaife.... twice. Anthony and Tim spent last night reconfiguring my fixing systems and cursing the driver. Because of pressure of work I will be hitting the prologue stages untested.

Would be good to see some Nissan fans out on stage, car is sounding good and the new box is lickety split and just so different from the old road box.

Called in on Andy this week, car was looking great. Its awesome that you put this sort of effort in Andy, great promotion of the brand. We are seeing the S30 starting to get collectible, and talk of the S130 starting to appreciate in value. So if you own a Z its well worth backing this sort of thing, can only be good for the brand.

OK, we got yellow carded at scrutineering for exhaust, so Ant and I have spent 3 or 4 hours extending the exhaust. It sounds very civilised now!

Also if there's any Hamiltonians want to pop down to the Ibis from 7pm to 8pm tomorrow Monday for the Targa Welcome Function, I have three spare tickets, nibbles and first drink free. send me a text on 0274757744 if interested and I'll hold the/a ticket/s for you.

Why did I not see this until now??? :roll: :lol:

I did spot a certain black build link sponsored car as it headed sth past The Base in Hamilton, also spotted Clark in the little yellow Z powered Escort :D

Even had a surprise emergency visit from a slightly unhappy VQ38HR powered 350Z, helped sort it out and send it away much happier :D

Hope everything is going well for all our Z car people!!

Yes, Maseo very grateful for your assistance.

We did our late tonight solving slipping clutch but we are very happy with car and crew, the Quaife is bloody marvellous, we have a gear for every occasion. Tonight we are 2nd in category, 5th in classic and I think 15th overall.
