Had a great day. My brakes feel like the pads are glazed over a bit :biggrin:

Had a heart stopping moment when following steei downhill on a snowy section of road. I thought he was just slowing down, but turned out that he'd decided to stop to take a picture, so I had to stop too :icon_eek:

The mud on the windows was becoming a problem, so I tried to clean them using the only thing to hand - baby wipes with aloe vera on them. Not a good idea...

Pictures are on flickr as my webspace disappeared as part of an ISP upgrade :shrug:

My pics added to post #1

I like this pic. It really shows how much the body shape has changed from geoffmiles beautiful black '06 and R5oss big red '09 in the background. :raspberry:

Yes I do mdg, your girl friend is SO EASY :bananapowerslide:

That's the last time I'm taking YOUR advice, an SH body in Papier Mache just does not last in those cold & damp conditions :crazy:
But it did improve the aerodynamics, while it lasted, t'was only the pretty STi that almost kept up, if only steei had spent less time wiping it down :raspberry:



As for your leadership on the second half of the run, need I say more :shake:

Just check this Neil8p photo of the asthmatic N/A trying to keep up with the haystack :icon_rolleyes:



James TenTenths, you did not miss much, but there again we did not miss you either, since we were denied the opportunity to witness the bridge spitting you off yet again. My bet was going to be that this time you would make third base in Brazillia :icon_wink: :icon_redface:

Yeah, it was just the usual photo-editing session that makes this so appealing :biggrin: :biggrin: :biggrin:

Oh well, 'till the next one :icon_sad:

Excellent video. I can't believe how slow I am compared to the diesel in the first video. Maybe it's fitted with those heavy toyota pedals that get stuck to the floor :biggrin:

Any info on that scoop ?
The scoop was one of a group buy many years ago. Came from a company in Aussieland called Foresterbitz ?? I know that they no longer exist. I bought it off Stevem who didn't use it. A little larger than the standard one and looks good, as well as getting a little more air to the i/c. A straight swop fit, no bother at all.

Good day out, I left home at 7 05am and returned at 6.50 pm -- a 12 hr day in the t/tb !! Will try to remember the camera next time . Nice to meet everyone and put faces to names.

Cheers

Brian

LOL, I am getting old-er, the penny has just dropped, they really were used baby wipes :Banane14: :tissue:


steei, good vids, but the HD recording slows the footage down when played back in LD. Those lanes were going past faster than that :shrug:
