Its gotta be Rupert, 'cos I'm driving up with him and sharing his room and polishing the car and ...... ;):p

Should be a good match though - Does anyone know how quick the 3.0 Giken is going to be !

does anyone have a list of all of the clubs entering ?

I'd like to see what other exotica is going to be there so I can make predictions and dream of a gtr victory.

I'm afraid not!

Thanks for asking Dirk, I would certainly dag myself out of bed at 5.00 Sunday to make the trip but the wife is still on the mend and its a bit of a bl88dy long way to come back in a hurry if she does have any sort of wobble! Can't really give her the "okay love be home in half an our hour" trade.

I wish you all luck and can't wait for the results/piccies.

Speed

Back to Steve's question, the main competition on Top Speed is gonna be:

Vipers (4)
Supras (10)
911 GT2
Cossies (10)

Most other cars(evos, scoobies etc) don't have the sheer power to pull well at over 150mph (maybe the ND Evo might).

0 - 500 ?

Slightly off the thread - but what about the 500m, we all know that the big BHP skylines should hit good top speeds, but can Ged and his sequential, or Rupert and his 60mph 1st gear ( Plus everyone else ) , see off the nippy Evos / Scoobies / Cossies - or does the extra distance ( over 1/4 mile ) mean that we are gonna be top of the pile here as well !

Rgds,

Paul ( All excited now :D ;) )

Edited to say - Am I being stupid and really forgetting something, help ;) ??

Are you going to try and hook up with Rupert, Dirk and I ( as the petrol paying passenger ) on Sat Lisa ???

ND Evo

Paul,

I just looked at the ND Website this morning as well, that car will be quick, though the extra 100m will help us since Evo aerodynamics have got to be worse than GTR, plus he's down on power.

I also see he has just bought a Bayside Blue R34.....!
