  1. They've been around 15+ years doing most of the northern suburbs work aside from Jaustech. Good reputation, and are part of Sleeka Spares so the front yard is full of Toyotas. They did the CA18DET in my old silvia, which had a microtech and was fully rebuilt/worked. It ran very nicely considering it was pushing over 200 at the wheels. Worth your time, sure they'll be helpful. Can't comment on cost though, I bought the car built and tuned by previous owner.
  2. V8 Supercars - How Can Nissan Differ?

    Shows how long I've been paying attention..........last thing I remember was something about e85? and yes F1 was going down the dunny too, thought the new rules over the last 3 years or so have made it more interesting, for F1 standards. Things like KERS have been adopted by mainstream cars, new mazda 6?, I see that as motorsport bringing innvotation to automotobiles. V8's should adopt that sort of mantra is all I'm saying, but they can't I guess because that is financially demanding. Think I'll jump into the hole I just dug for myself ;P
  3. V8 Supercars - How Can Nissan Differ?

    They need to set up the rules so that everyone has targets to meet but has some form creativity or flexibilty to get to them. So over this carbon copy crap. I don't know if they are all still restricted to 500HP, but that should be upped as 500 isn't the magical figure it used to be. Heck FPV and HSV's are near that so a race car needs more. Depending on weight limits I'd say 650-750 is feasible. I know they are trying to bring down the cost of competing, but less weight costs more than more power. Challenge is what brings on innovation, and racing is lacking that in a big way. It really is just turning into a marketing spectacle. In any regard, bring it on at Clipsal. I'll be going, but if it ends up being shite I'll probably give up on the V8 and stick with F1. At least that'll be interesting with the new engine rules for next year, turbo's again, yay!
  4. Pretty much sums it up, you're getting a subtle hint. 18 means you're an adult, being an adult means learning to pay your own way. Some parents are just different about it. I got a friendly kick up the arse to move out at 18, ended up back there when I was 22 due to shit going wrong with work and was supposed to stay a few months but left at 26. I was a bit of an arse and said I wasn't paying rent, but paid for my share of everything else. Probably ended up being like $100 a week though........ Have your parents said they want you to move out or are they just asking you to contribute? Talk to them, not us.......
  5. http://www.google.co...7gGtG1qR_2PlQhA That should be enough to dispell that email, several links assosciated with that information......and I am in no means a supporter of people ripping me off bludgers or foreigners alike. Pic as per rules, Plitvice Waterfalls – Croatia got in on my phone via stumbleupon.
  6. Drills - what's good?

    FYI, Dewalt owns the Black and Decker/Stanley Ranges, and is owned by the Mormons in America [at least it was 5 or so years ago]. Top stuff though, only returns I ever got of those were from Tradies that abused everything they owned and most times we still managed to get them replaced under warranty. Something along the lines of an 18V with a 3.0AH twin battery kit should be what you're after. I'd be pricing it up between All Tools, Total Tools and Gasweld. Gasweld have a Milkwakee 18V Li-on with two 1.5AH batteries for $299, and a Dewalt 18v Bare, with a battery for $259 [extra $99] for a charger. Sure you'll find something you like.
  7. Yes, and +1 to bootleg Don't really know about the validity of the studies regarding mental health, but it most certainly has longterm effects on cognitive function e.g. memory. But smoking increases your chances of cancer and alcohol increases your chances of liver disease, so any controlled susbstance has it's drawbacks. Few more forgetful old farts isn't really going to hurt things much. Can't stress enough how much it will hit the organised crime syndicates in the hip pocket, and they'll be left to push the harder stuff which far more of the population has no tolerance for, so punishments can be dealt more swiftly. May as well let Joe bloggs grow his own stuff, and sell it to introduce some control over the stuff. Never made sence to me why they took away peoples right to do that, or why they haven't legalized prostitution in some states.........
  8. What graphics card to buy

    Assuming the rest of your PC is less than 4 years old the BFYB is either A GTX660 for $238 B 7870 for $245. Comparisons sake I have a GTX460 in my old PC which is three years old and runs Borderlands 2 fine at High settings, so the above cards should be good for 2-3 years of the same.
  9. I was just going to say no and wait for the hate mail.......but....... If marriage is by definition the "holy union of a man and a woman" and is something brought upon us by religion from the early ages, and religion doesn't want it then I agree. However if gay people want a legalised union to be accepted in the eyes of law/governement they need to bring it about in the same context but give it some other title that the majority will accept, and keep religion out of it. Put it to a referendum, oh wait that won't work, or will it? Many people are happy to live as a couple and keep marriage out of it [something I'd like but am yet to convince the other half], all this bantering is for is to get recognition and the benefits associated with being a recognised couple in the eyes of government/tax/business etc. And hence why is show it very little respect....... now you can start the hatin'.
  10. Super who do you use / consolidation

    Got mine with MLC. Not a 'industry' fund but a financial company, highly rated in last years super funds ratings list. All I did to consolidate mine was email my fund manager and he sent me one form to sign specifically for consolidating funds and they did the rest. I like them enough as the fees are ok, they seem to perform well on average and I have control over where my money is going. I just moved a portion of my super into a safer fund, leaving the deposits made going into a higher risk section, and did it all via my account online.
  11. what is your latest purchase?

    Something akin to this, old school picture for an old gun. Taken up Target Rifle Shooting, and was recommended as the best beginners rifle. Awesome!
  12. what is your latest purchase?

    Replacing my dually that got stolen.....it was wasted on me anyway so I got an Avanti Agressor 2 29er.

  14. Do you budget?

    Yeah, I budget and am trying my damndest to get the missus doing something as opposed to spend it all weekly. I'd be stuffed otherwise as I spend about as much as I make currently. Trying to get rid of a few debts and then pour money into savings. Aiming to get to a point where I can have a house loan and pocket $500-1000 a month in savings. Just use an excel spreadsheet at the moment, as it does all the tracking I need but gives me the option to change things frequently.
