Here's some pics.... It's mostly standard :rolleyes:

December 2006 Winton raceway. Unfortunately I only had a few laps and had to stop at the start of the day due to engine troubles

The sad photo from the end of that day

This is what happened when I discovered how to fishtail the mains straight and link corners in 3rd gear, (drifting of course), at Winton in June 2006

Got any plans for it?? By the way, you import that or buy it off someone here?

Its actually a modified Australian delivered car, so it wasn't imported. Sort of almost done with modifications. Just need to iron out a few things, change a few bits for the balance/tune I'm after.

Ooh not sure if I can make it on the 28th. I'll see how I go.

Clip from mid 2006 at Winton raceway. Unfortunately out of all the times i linked all 3 corners, this one only shows the lap I link the first 2 and then fishy the straight.

Hmm this forum doesn't seem to let me embed clips unless i'm doing it all wrong..

Here's a link to it though - http://vids.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=vids.individual&videoid=2026475477

Oh, actually my friend was driving my car back for me that time. I think he mentioned he really wanted to boot it due to some, 'onlookers', hehe. But he supposedly took it easy since it wasn't his car.

So went to the EXE Dyno day to find my motor isn't even running at its full potential. It's obviously short by 20-30rwkw with a massive torque flat spot from roughly 2500rpm to 4500rpm. Theories point to the sensitive afm, so I'll see if I can get that fixed this weekend.

I went to the Calder Park drifts last Wednesday. Here's a few videos of the runs thanks to Ying for filming and putting up with the 2 degree weather - 30.05.2007. I'm not sure why the commentator kept referring to my car as the, "MR2 Sprinter". In 2 of the runs you can see my rear tyres sparking up if you look carefully :D
