errr hosting is not a problem, but resizing and putting watermark on every photo takes time

Loved the entrance huh? Circuit Battle cars were fantastic (loved the Manhia MX-5). Had a good look at them, their fantastic stripped out race interiors. Love that stuff. The Chargespeed S2K almost gets lost in the whole show car biz... that CF dash is so shiny imagine driving that in the sun! The glare would be ridiculous. Beau's AE is hot hot hot but the Z-Tune stole the show for me. It was my fave car there, funny thing is that is's DEAD STOCK. I mean, the hottest car for me was dead stock and it wasn't slammed low either. Amazing.

As for the rest of the show. I always try to keep positive and try my best to appreciate the insane amounts of money and work put into some of these cars but in all honesty the music blasting from so many different directions made me feel kinda stressed out, that in combination with the big crowd made me feel a little claustrophobic. I had to literally sit down, have a drink, get accustomed to the loud doof doof music coming from all different directions and just walk slower and focus on trying to look at each car.

Nice to run into some familiar faces, Bel Garage had a strong presence there for sure, loved their cars. The 5 Zigen stall got me all excited!!! I'd love to see more JDM manufacturers display their goods next time!

Definitely more show girls this time and damn the stuff their wearing gets hotter and hotter doesn't it? As usual I kinda felt sorry for them, little kids grabbing their arses... etc etc saw a fair bit of that.

So whilst we don't promote and encourage people to post up not safe for work material... the babes and cars go hand in hand in Australia's premier modified car show, so post'em up peeps!!! (maybe start a new thread clearly labeled NSFW!).

Z Tune just looked the part of a $170 000+ car. The Strut Brace itself was hard to take in, i mean comparing that to the usual Cusco ones .... 320 atw is pretty damn impressive too. I wanted to have a closer look inside but was a little worried that security would be on your ass. Overall the show was a good experience. The 1000hp Skyline GT-R was also another highlight.

I got to watch the car on the track at the PowerPlay Oran Park day. Now that was amazing. Also got to catch up with Easton while he shot the car for Autosalon magazine.

That's me in the background... hehe

Wish I could've shared some track time with it too but I was in a different group. I got to hear the thing on full song down the main straight. Sooo angry. Love that car.



...in all honesty the music blasting from so many different directions made me feel kinda stressed out, that in combination with the big crowd made me feel a little claustrophobic...

I forgot about that. I haven't been to an autosalon in a long time. But reading this brought back memories of me thinking, "TURN THE FUCKING MUSIC DOWN!#[email protected]#!!"

It's ridiculous. There's no need for everyone to be competing with their freaking music. The organisers should do something about it. But you know, what can ya do.

I doubt it, the owner isnt too keen on taking it around the country for shows. You will however get a chance to see it being driven properly at next years Dutton Rally QLD so make sure you make it out to that to check it out
