  1. still lifting bruhhh?

    Been lifting on & off for the past 4 years, the last 2 years I've been a little more serious and consistent. Currently sitting at a bodyweight of 78gs Current 1RM's are: Bench: 110kg Deadlift: 255kg Squat:175kg Diet has been experimental over that time. Currently focussing on calories vs what I'm actually putting in my mouth which has so far yielded the best results.
  2. Datsun 1200 Sedan (1972)

    ITEM: Datsun 1200 Sedan (1972) CONDITION: Very good REASON FOR SELLING: Not wanting to modify a clean un-molested example PRICE AND PRICE CONDITIONS: $6000 firm EXTRA INFO: After quite a bit of thought I have decided to put my Datsun 1200 up for sale. After owning a few performance cars over the years and deciding to move on from them for a while to build a house etc.........the bug has now once again bitten, I contemplated modifying this 1200 with a CA18DET or SR20DET etc........but to be honest whilst not being in 'perfect' condition it is very clean and un-molested so I would prefer to move this on and start a new project. As you will see from the photos the car is very clean, neat and tidy which was exactly what I was looking for when I purchased her 6/7 years ago, they were very few and far between then and seem to be even more scarce now. The only 'modifications' to have been made to this vehicle are as follows: -13 x 6" Performance mini lights with virtually brand new tyres. -50mm lowering blocks in the rear with 50mm lowered springs in the front. -Pioneer CD player in glove box with I-Pod input, with DLS speakers front and rear. -Steel rear venetian. -And of course the hand knitted rug on the rear seat. I have the original wheels and hub caps that will come with the car if you want the original look. 3 months rego will be put on the car for the buyer. The car has some very minor rust, tears in vinyl seats and a couple of minor dents as pictured. I am by no means in any rush so my asking price will be firm and I'm not interested in swaps or removing things to make the car cheaper LOCATION: Adelaide, South Australia CONTACT: 04 88 44 66 96 (I don't come online too often so please text/call)
  3. Post updated down the bottom! Plz ignore this original nooby post, haha! Hey guys, i have searched for the info i'm after but my goals seem to be a bit different to most so i haven't yet come across the answers/info. I'll start with my stats. i'm 23 approximately 175cms tall 88kgs in the morning (obvioulsy for my height i'm overweight) I used to play a lot of sport but after my child and some other commitments that stopped, after a couple of years i realised i needed to get back into some more physical activity so i'm now playing indoor soccer every sunday and go to the gym (so far have been going since the middle of July) 3-4 times a week (dependant on work) I have a mate who works out and he's given me a programme and some advice which has already helped but i want to get some more opinions. Basically my goals are: Stay roughly around the 90kg mark but lose the body fat (gut and love handle's) and tone/slightly build muscle. I have improved my diet vastly but still probably isn't ideal. (i can't afford the protein shakes and supplements so that isn't an option) Breakfast (7:30am) - 3/4 weet bix, or scrambled eggs on toast (no butter) with fruit juice. Snack (10:15am) - salada's with tuna Lunch (12:30pm) - roll with ham and cheese Snack (3:00pm) - muesli bar/muffin Dinner (6:00pm) - varies most days but usually steak and veg, curry with rice, spag bol etc. Snack (7:30pm) - milo milkshake Try to drink atleast 3L of liquid (Juice/cordial/water) a day. (i find with all this i am never hungry and am usually struggling to eat my afternoon snack but i make sure i force myself to) My workout consists of 3-4 one hour sessions a week. I spend 15/20 mins on the bike and then the rest of the time is spent doing weights etc working on my whole body over the week. (knee's been playing up for a couple of weeks so i have been struggling to do all my squats!) Any advice would be much appreciated from this info! Cheers in advance!
  4. hoping for some advice

    ha-ha, what a laugh this has been to read.................. So six years on have I learnt anything?....................let’s just say I can see why some people got/get so frustrated by some of the comments/posts people make........... We are so brainwashed by the media though and what people think/perceive is healthy it’s ridiculous, the low fat foods / diets drive me insane............ I don't diet but if people want to put a label on what I eat I basically follow the paleo diet and eat gluten free (I never touch anything with wheat these days) and I feel the best I ever have. Use a lot of coconut oil and butter when cooking. I'm now 30 (yep jus had the big 3.0) I now maintain a pretty steady 80kgs~ I have and still do mix up my training to keep things interesting and hopefully not stagnate.............I 'Strongman' train once week and depending on the programme I'm doing I weight train 3-4 times a week. I can’t remember what my maxes were back in the day or if I even did them but I’ve just cracked the 200KG deadlift, 150KG Squat… Reasonably happy with leg stuff but got some work to do on upper body…….. Over the past few years I’ve done quite a few of the common programmes, 10 x 10’s, 5 x 5’s etc……. I have a squat/power rack that I’ve built at home and apart from ‘Strongman’ training I always train at home usually by myself, I do very little isolation exercises, more fully body exercise (dead’s, squats, overhead press, clean and press, barbell rows, chinups etc………..) The biggest thing I have found though over the years which has been mentioned over and over on here is that diet and recovery are so important and I know when I was younger I kinda scoffed at those comments……… Never been a heavy drinker but I certainly used to enjoy my Friday and Saturday nights, these days I hardly touch the stuff maybe had 4/5 drinks in total last year, that has certainly helped my training.
  5. Softies SA Fishing Thread

    just got back from the onk (near foot bridge), threw a 5g halco round for 2 salmon trout and a tommy, nothing big but a bit of fun. mate caught a bream on some prawns.

  7. looks pretty likely i'll be starting a new job in the next month or so. i have just over 7 weeks annaul leave up my sleeve and i'll be taking a week off between jobs so i'll get paid an extra 6 weeks this financial year in theory meaning i'll get paid 58 weeks this year. Does this mean i'll get taxed extra on that money and if so will it be now or at tax time? Some people have said i will and others have said i won't due to the fact i'm on $55k a year and the next tax bracket isn't til $75k? any help would be appreciated! Cheers!
  8. tax guru's out there

    Cheers Kieran. Yes it will be paid in a lump sum so basically i will get taxed severely up front but will get it back at tax time? This years tax should be good as it'll be my first year with an investment property too!

  11. Fishing spots in Adelaide

    Here are some pics of the fish i kept in pt. lincoln a couple of weeks before xmas. And also some pics from Boxing day, went wakeboarding at wellington and fished in between, no monsters but dropped 3 larger ones at the bank. Some were great fun on 6lb line.
  12. Fishing spots in Adelaide

    just got back from pt. lincoln where i was working. only managed to fit in 2 hours of fishing but its the best 2 hrs of fishing i've had in years. I fished the wharf at the marina (near the restaurant), when i first got there i chucked my 15g chrome halco lure on and hooked up to 9/10 salmon trout, only managed to land one though each time i went to lift them up the 3m wharf they would head shake and spit the hook. I then caught a small slimy mackeral on the lure and by this time i was fed up with losing them at the last minute so i decided to fillet it and use it as bait, best thing i did. Once i was baiting every cast had hits before it even hit the bottom most times. Caught another 15 salmon trout, 25-35cm (kept 4) 7 trevally, 15-35cm (kept 4) the 30+cm ones were great fun on 6lb line. 8 tommies, 15-25cm (kept all, smaller ones for bait) Wish i had sessions like that here in Adelaide

  16. (taken from evo oz) MEDIA RELEASE 4 November 2009 Exciting Motor Sport development opportunity for the former Mitsubishi test track site The prospect of additional motor sports and training facilities for road users and all sectors of the automotive industry looks set to proceed following a decision announced today by the Coorong District Council and other key parties. Involving Motorcycling South Australia (MSA) and the Sporting Car Club of South Australia (SCC of SA) with the support of The Confederation of Australian Motor Sport (CAMS) and Motorcycling Australia (MA) the plan when fully implemented would see the former Mitsubishi test site at Tailem Bend transformed into a complex for on and off road motor sport events for both motorcycles and cars. Other uses for the complex that covers approximately 1680 acres would include driver training, and vehicle testing for motorcycles, cars, heavy vehicles, and machinery. The site is located on the corner of the Dukes and Mallee Highways approx 100 kilometres from Adelaide and approx 570 kilometres from Melbourne. Fully developing the facility will require a multi-million dollar investment over several years. The complex will hold motor sport events including motorcycle and car circuit racing, drag racing, drifting, super motard, rallying, motocross, and endurance events. The next step in the process is a full feasibility study of the project to be part funded by CAMS together with the other parties involved. Parties involved with the project said today that the Tailem Bend facility would provide an economic stimulus in the area and would include both long term and short-term employment. ‘The proposal would supplement existing facilities in South Australia. Mr. Lyn Punshon a spokesperson for the Sporting Car Club of SA said today: . ‘There is a great need for more facilities Australia wide and South Australia can take a position of leadership when the Tailem Bend motorsport facility comes on stream’. “The Sporting Car Club sees this as a great opportunity to work in with MSA, CAMS, MA and the Coorong District Council to establish a motorsport and driver training facility that can be utilized by all motoring and motorcycle clubs in South Australia.”, MEDIA RELEASE 4 November 2009 Ivan Golding, President of Motorcycling South Australia said: “This is a most exciting project, which will take us into the future with substantial benefits for motorsport. We look forward to working closely with the Sporting Car Club of SA and the Coorong District Council to continue to deliver motorsport not only in South Australia but also nationally, which will include both motorcycling and car events. Jo Malloy from Motorcycling South Australia said: “We have a fantastic opportunity to develop an international standard complete motorsport facility. This exciting project will provide South Australian motorsport enthusiasts another facility in which they can enjoy their sport whether it is as a participant or spectator and whether they enjoy cars or bikes, both on road and off road. It is our intention to cater for all codes of motorsport. We are very happy to be in a position in which we can work in conjunction with the Sporting Car Club of South Australia and we are delighted to have the backing of all the relevant governing bodies both nationally and internationally. The Coorong District Council along with the Regional Development Board have been very proactive in their decision to develop the site and we look forward to working with them to create the motorsport facility” The CEO of CAMS Mr. Graham Fountain today also welcomed the announcement. “Access to motor sport facilities is one of the key challenges faced by the sport and the addition of Tailem Bend to Mallala in South Australia is a tremendous boost for the sport and community. In addition, this venue will provide a key facility for the conduct of a range of education and training programs, which will include the full range of CAMS new and exciting proactive community and youth development programs”, Mr. Fountain said.. Coorong District Council Mayor Roger Strother said: “There has been quite a lot of public and media interest in the former test track site since Council acquired it earlier this year. I am very excited at the prospect of having a Motorsport Facility developed on the former test track site. Such a development will bring enormous economic benefit to the district and put the Coorong District Council on the map with national exposure. I am sure the announcement of this exciting opportunity will bring renewed confidence in the district which has recently been undermined with on going issues regarding drought and water issues. I look forward to working with the SCCSA and MSA to ensure their vision for the site becomes a reality.” Speaking on behalf of the consortium Mr. Punshon said that while the master planning and feasibility stage would take 18 months to complete; club and, community events as well as driver/rider training activities at the Tailem Bend site could commence as early as the beginning of 2010 with sprint, motorkana, burnout and off road events likely to be the first conducted at the Tailem Bend complex. An open day will be held at the site in the near future to enable clubs and driver training organizations to view the current facilities and also have input into the vision for the site. MEDIA RELEASE 4 November 2009 Background At a special Council meeting held on Monday 26th October 2009 the Coorong District Council resolved to enter into a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Sporting Car Club of South Australia (SCCSA) and Motorcycling South Australia (MSA) to develop the former Mitsubishi Test Track site into an International Motor Sport Facility. The MoU will allow for the commencement of more detailed negotiations and investigations required to create a final contract on the land and ensure the development proceeds. The Council commenced an Expression of Interest process in June this year with the aim of identifying development opportunities for the site. Following a comprehensive assessment and evaluation process the Council has decided the combined SCCSA and MSA submission is the best proposal to deliver a major economic development opportunity for the Council. The Councils main intention when it purchased the site was to facilitate a major development that would bring economic development to the district. The SCCSA and MSA intend to design and develop a multi purpose International Standard Motorsport Facility for both on and off road motorsport events, driver training, vehicle testing and other motor sport and motor club events for on road and off road events for bikes and cars (including but not limited to circuit racing, drag racing, drifting, motard, rallying) and training for bikes, cars, heavy vehicles and machinery. The Council, SCCSA and MSA are eager to work together to ensure the proposed development is successful. The Council is pleased to be working with two South Australia organisations that have both demonstrated a commitment to establishing an international motorsport facility in South Australia, are highly regarded and reputable with significant expertise in motor sport and have the support of the Confederation of Australian Motorsport (CAMS). The SCCSA is the oldest motorsport club in southern hemisphere and has a membership base of 1800 motoring enthusiasts, it promotes and organises all of SA’s state level car circuit racing activities. MSA is the governing body for motorcycle sports in SA and has a membership of 6000 motorcycle sport enthusiasts and over 40 affiliated clubs throughout the state. MSA is supported by Motorcycling Australia (MA). The Council would like to acknowledge the tremendous support it has received from the Murraylands Regional Development Board (MRDB) throughout the EOI process. The MRDB has been proactive in assisting Council with its aims of promoting economic development in the area.
  17. Fishing spots in Adelaide

  18. Some good news for SA Motorsport!

  19. Motorplex dead?

    I'll take a few if you got spares left over!
  20. Some good news for SA Motorsport!

    mmmmmmmm, well i saw this as only positive but i may be naive. When i read it last night i looked at it as an extra and still presumed/hoped the gillman complex would be going ahead (thinking 3 track options eventually would be awesome like all the eastern states have.) now i live in seaford rise so i'm a southerner, it takes me 1 hr and 15 mins to get to mallala and it would be the same time to tailem bend as i wakeboard at wellington (which takes just under an hour to get to) and tailem bend is only another 10 mins further. you southerners whinging about how far away it is needs to come for a hills run with me so i can show you the back way to get to murray bridge/tailem bend, there are some great roads which you guys clearly don't know about! I can see this complex wouldn't attract full on drag cars but for the everyday modded street car who wants to have fun legally i think this is a great option, i'm all for it but still want to see an andra drag strip down the track.

  24. Fishing spots in Adelaide

    tried the pond for a couple of hours saturday at hallet cove with only a few bites and no fish today i threw some soft plastics down the pat for a couple of hours with no luck either (plenty of mullet around though) hoping this warm weather hangs around so that the metro land based fishing improves.
