Grant, Keith ended up with a 14.3 in his EH, but the car will see 13's for sure. It's got the full Commodore driveline - SV6, T700. He forgot to press the 'Power' button, so it wasn't shifting the best. He only did 3 or 4 runs, and was also getting the feel back for racing.

He's also proven in the past that the rear muffler costs 10rwkw, so next time will drop that. On top of that, he's not even getting full throttle. So plenty to play with.

As Daz said, lots of cool Toranas were there. I'll see if the missus took any photos and post some up if so. Overall though, perfect numbers in attendance. Not too busy to cause long waits, and not too quiet to make it boring for spectators.

Cheers gents!

PS. Matty - long time no see! Are you still getting the Torry out these days? Have you had her down the 1/4 yet with the new donk?

Here's a selection of some Torana's from the day:

 

Blue versus green. He won the burnout comp, but I won that race...

The paint on this thing was absolutely stunning - photos do not do it justice...

G'Day Brett, great to see you've still got the passion mate!

3 kids?... wow, how time flies!

I hope Scott Ward passed on my best wishes through the EH club mate...

 

Looks like a great day!

Hey Mate,

 

Yeah - it's been ages. my free time is taken up working on the house. Doing big renovations that is sucking my time and wallet dry! Haven't had the Torana out in over a year now!

 

My daily is an LSA R8 Clubsport now though... So that is kinda helping scratch that itch.

I think the Orange 4 door was running between 11.5-11.7's from memory.

 

Sorry mate I thought you were coming on Sunday. Here's some photo's just for you.
