Re: Sydney SRT Club

Just had a bast out at Eastern Creek on a Performance Driving course for the day. Had a wide range of cars including a worked/blown MX5, BMW M3, and BMW 1xx (something or other) that were all quick nimble and faster around the winding little track they had marked out than me. That said, everyone loved the Jeep (including the instructors) and all took turns in the back seat doing straight runs.

The last "run" of the day is a 2 car chase and we were following the MX5 and won when it spun out. With some luck we may have some great footage as he had a go pro on the boot and at one point we had the Jeep with the front right a foot off the ground in a corner apparently!

The Jeep (certainly not me) got the "Master Blaster" Award!

I'm thinking if others are keen we could get them to do a day for just SRT and see what we can get these beasts to do around a course for the day. Any takers over the Holidays?

Thanks
Nathan

PS - The owner of the business has purchased a 300c SRT as well

Re: Sydney SRT Club

Ohhh and Ian Luff (the owner of the track day mob) mentioned he was at the Petrol Station when an SRT left with a big squirt and an almighty rumble... sounds like it could have been DCRSRT or kilad4n after hearing their rides!

I'm in- do we all have to be there at the same time?



Incidentally, I was at Crystal Car wash a couple of weeks ago for my first wash, and one of the ringin dryers dropped his chamois, picked it back up and kept going on the Merc they were doing- I just about threw up. When they did my car I couldn't watch..........lol

Re the headlight ribbon activation kit- has anyone in Oz done this, and do we need to tell them we are in Oz with different specs?

Thanks.

I have it, along with a few others on the forum. Depending what build date you have you may need an extra wire to make it work.

Oz spec is the same as US in this regard.

Re: Sydney SRT Club

It would be best for me in the Holidays as well. I've sent them an email asking:
- Format
- Minimum # of Participants
- Costs

Re: Sydney SRT Club

Depending on costs I would def want to give this a go.
Either this or one of those advanced driver 'get to know your car' courses would be cool too.

Yeah, car washes usually = free scratches and swirls

Re: Sydney SRT Club

I painstaking do my car myself. Such a pain in the ass but no swirls. Got like a million microfibre clothes for all the processes
