  1. Hi all, Anyone have one of these fitted to their car, one of my remotes has ceased to function (even with a new battery fitted) yep LED shines bright. I found online a guide to reprogram (ignition on/off seven times) this didn't work, any help/ideas/hacks gratefully accepted. Cheers John
  2. I bought this from REPCO a couple of years ago, still works well, no issues, I would recommend. https://www.repco.com.au/en/brands/gv-tools/gv-tools-6-drawer-tool-chest-combo/p/A9412841

  6. Sort after area (real estate speak) SOUGHT after, its bloody SOUGHT after 😠 Gone to the white collection? https://www.motor1.com/news/275062/amazing-white-porsche-collection-envy/
  7. And it's a sort after model, not a sought after model, not sure, does that makes it worth more??
  8. I 2nd Promotive, Michael looks after my street driven car, but his workshop is always full of race cars, he builds them from scratch, as well as looking after them.
  9. Similar story, a mate's car used a bit of oil, showed his wife how to check the dipstick, explained if it was down add a litre or two. When he got home, oil all over the driveway, went to see his wife, she was furious, how are you supposed to get the oil in that little hole. Yep tried to fill it through the dipstick tube. I was on her side, should have explained better.
  10. FREEDOM has popped up on AMAZON PRIME, I subscribe for their other car shows (Drive, Jay Leno, The Grand Tour etc.) also noticed another 70's aussie film is on there "The FJ Holden" Maybe time to search for other 70's car shows.

Or maybe I'll just stick to PENRITE.

The series started Thursday with an uninterrupted 50-minute practice session, topped by Jaxon Evans, David Wall and Jordan Love, giving the drivers a taste of the wet conditions at the iconic 6.213km Mount Panorama circuit. The rain worsened for the afternoon qualifying session, with James Moffat proving to be the master in the rain, beating the next best driver Dale Wood by 0.9348secs by the end of the session. Love was the third best of the 30-minute qualifying from Michael Almond, with David Wall and Glen Wood to fill the third row of the grid for Friday’s opening race. “It’s always nice to start on the front row of the grid, but more importantly, that’s four pole positions in a row for Wall Racing. It’s a fantastic effort from all the guys in the team,” said Moffat. “It was really hard conditions as it was very wet out there and there’s a lot of concrete to hit around Mount Panorama so you have to weigh up the risk versus the reward. Tomorrow could bring anything. We’ll have to wait and see what the weather is going to do, but certainly if it’s a dry race, going into it without any dry laps this weekend will be challenging.” Flack secured the TAG Heuer Pro-Am pole position in a late charge after the session resumed; the only red flag stoppage of the day occurred late in the qualifying session to recover Roger Lago’s car from the turn one run off area. Stephen Grove was the second best of the Pro-Am drivers from Lago, The Bend class winner Anthony Gilbertson and Tim Miles. "I haven’t driven this car in these conditions so I didn’t know what to expect,” said Flack. "You’d come up to a corner and turn in and not know what the car was going to do. After a couple of laps we started to settle into it. It was very scary, but quite fun." “Getting the pole position was unexpected; I was trailing the top guys for most of the session and managed to bring it home in the final laps. One of the biggest things is, if it’s wet tomorrow, I’ve never started one of these cars in the rain, so the start will be interesting.” Next up for Carrera Cup at Mount Panorama will be the 16-lap opening race on Friday, which will be the penultimate race of the 2018 Endurance Cup, which Dale Wood (Pro) and Stephen Grove (TAG Heuer Pro-Am) currently lead. Saturday and Sunday will then each feature one nine-lap race.
