  1. I haven't driven it in many years but Skenes Creek to Forrest was a cracker of a road that I remember well.
  2. Holden Crewman for me 🙋‍♂️ Can't beat those leaf springs at the rear!
  3. I still have the the original Eurovox radio cassette in mine and this thing works a treat to stream music and do handsfree calls through the stereo speakers. https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Wireless-Bluetooth-Car-Kit-FM-Transmitter-Handsfree-Car-Charger-MP3-Player-USB/322325672767?hash=item4b0c1b733f:g:VGIAAOSwKOJYKuBm:rk:10:pf:0
  4. I'm biased....... but after 16 years in a Formula Vee I couldn't fault it. Very close racing wheel to wheel right throughout the field no matter your ability. Cost to buy a car can be anywhere from $12K to $30K or you can usually lease a car for $2K per round and up. They're light and easy to tow with the family car and don't take up much room in your shed. This year I have done 6 Vic State rounds and National Champs at Eastern Creek and my total cost for the year all up including an engine freshen up, entry costs, tyres, fuel, etc etc is less than $10K. Basic maintenance and prep is straightforward and it takes a few hours to get them ready between meetings. Nothing against super sprints and regularity but there is something to be said for getting out there and going nose to tail and wheel to wheel with 25 other cars and trying to do what the F1 or V8 Supercar guys do. The Formula Vee fraternity in both WA and NSW are a nice bunch of guys and girls too! Here's some of my video from Phillip Island about 6 weeks ago in a field of 23 cars. My car is an old one and something similar would be in the $12K range to buy.
  5. I've no experience with them myself but there is this place in Melbourne for repair and fault diagnosis http://www.injectronics.com.au/catalogue/view/electronic-control-module/658
  6. From Skenes Creek on the GOR (just prior to Apollo Bay) head inland to the town of Forrest. It's an awesome bit of road with fast flowing bends and some tight turns through the Otways with no tourists to worry about.

    2:10:240 for me ...... a few setup tweaks and a bit of practice helped
  8. That's USD too I presume so $100 in Pacific Pesos!!
  9. Try www.car-bone.pl who are based in Poland but seem to have every decal for Porsche and can make custom ones as needed. Postage is cheap! ie http://car-bone.pl/shop/underhood-stickers-964/

    I used the GT3 R as I couldn’t find a plain old 911 R [emoji6] I had a crack for 10 laps and got down to a 2.14.9 which is crap I know but it’s early days! I used the stock “loose” setup but really struggled getting out of the left hander after braking hard for The Chase. Some tweaks should improve it a bit.
  11. I'll take them if they're still for sale. PM sent with details. Tried to send you a private message but it says; privatepang cannot receive messages.
  12. I used CEVA for a transfer from Adelaide to my home and had no problems.
  13. Double check you don't have a mysterious property nearby with the curtains always drawn stealing your power to grow some green stuff 24/7
  14. 4 Bedroom house on 10 acres with pool, all electric (no gas), ducted AC plus two smaller split systems for heating and cooling, electric hot water, fish pond with pump and UV clarifier, heated towel rails, heated bathroom floor, etc etc etc For us winters are cold so we used around 70-80 kwh per day in June and July. Normally around 50kwh in the warmer months, We have done some renovations starting November and have had the big ducted AC unit disconnected since then and solar hot water installed. Usage for Feb so far is 28 kwh per day. Big AC units and plain old electric hot water obviously have a big impact
  15. I have some Formula Vee mates who run 'Carrera Automotive' in Croydon. They haven't been sued by anyone for copyright infringement!
