Has anyone gone out to one of these street meets at the dragway? Was keen on heading out there just to see how quick my car is in a straight line (boring I know). I'm guessing that it's a bit of a falcodore boganfest out there though!

yeah i've been a few times. its alright for what it is. not as bogan as you would think, there are some awesome cars that head out there regularly.

all you need is helmet, long pants & slong sleeve shirt, costs $28 & $10 spectators, you can also take passengers on solo runs.

gates open @ 6pm for scrutineering, racing starts 7pm. finishes around 10pm

they don't vht the track for street meets either & their timing gear is from the 60's so its not accurate but its a bit of fun.

 

there are 2 clubs that run the hill sprints & motorkhana

marque & tcac

 

the event calenders are yet to come out yet but first round is usually mid march.

 

paul- i wouldn't worry about the cyclone, all you will get over your way is some rain & maybe little bit of wind. castle hill, mt louisa & mt stuart help stop most of the wild weather.

 

also letting everyone know there may be a cruise down to airlie beach in the coming months.

head over to SAU and look in the mackay thread for info. would be good to get a heap of cars together for it.

grew up there :)

 

Just a question for you Townsville people- how are the coppers up there? do you get any grief from them over your cars ie do they try to get you for defects etc?

 

never really had a lot of trouble with cops when I was at home but did used to get pulled over very frequently for RBTs, collected something like 9 straws in 6 months.

 

that and they used to run the shaker which was like a booze bus set up but was like a mobile pit inspection that had a big moving platform that was meant to simulate driving down a bumpy road at 60

 

in the heady days of the turn of the millenium that used to pwn a lot of imports with lowered and stiff suspension, breaking camber arms etc.

 

guys used to put excessive noise infringements on their back windows as badges of honour but then the hoon laws came in

 

if you want somewhere to run amuck (skids, drags etc) the road to the water treatment plant (racecourse road) was the place to go, cops didn't usually hassle us because we were miles from any houses but it looks like the stuart bypass is going through there so those days are over...

 

racecourse road

i thought that may be the case for a few of you guys.

 

in regards to the car club membership you can pay for a year or day membership per event also need a CAMS license. it costs about $170 an event for non members & cams day license. or $70-90 an event for club members with cams license.

 

we will organise another cruise in the future when the world isn't endinglaugh.gif

 

for any of you boys that live on, your welcome to stay at my place before they lock down work.

 

limegreen machine- you on qss? there are some decent cars for sale at the moment (resprayed, na sr20 180sx-that car is very neat & a na ca18 its ok-ish), might be a bit pricey but haggle them down, don't pay more than 3K for either with a roadworthy. ya just missed out buying my spare car as sampson just bought it.

I bailed on Townsville the morning before the cyclone hit to stay with friend in Mackay! Checked my house in Annandale (that I haven't moved into yet because all my flood soaked belongings are still stuck in Brisbane) this arvo, man that whole suburb has been trashed! Actually the whole town had been!

 

How'd everyone else's houses etc. fare?
