Haha its not like many if any of the good v8's will be out anyways - lots are hardly legal or would have to put their exhausts back on :P . Checked it out today was pretty fun and some impressive cars regardless of if they were V8, rotary etc. Some R33 skylines failed pretty hardcore several times today though haha. Shoulda seen the reception an s2000 got trying to show off by a crowd of relatively intoxicated muscle car fans.

Last Summernats i got stuck behind an old v8 which happened to break down in the middle of Braddon.

Not fun.......

 

I thought modified turbo cars were unreliable.

Haha everything seems to fail when it will be the most embarrassing or inconvenient. A GT500 mustang broke down before his Go to Whoa run and a Mustang mach 1 died about 10m down the strip ha - no idea what it was but bits of rubber or something flew out from under it then it tried again later and same thing and just got towed away. It looked like a supercharger belt but the thing was still N/A so no idea.

 

Another one is one of my guide pins on my front calipers is stuck so I can't fit the caliper over the new brake pads :( Put the old shit ones back in so at least if i need to drive I can but hopefully get it sorted out on monday. Note I have to drive to qld in like 3 days haha so its a bit annoying.

You sure? I think you might have that wrong.

 

There were around 1200 cars entered this year, close to 700 less that last year.

The reason the fun police haven't managed to make summernats go the way of awesome firecrackers all year round and public nudity is that is brings shitloads of money into the local economy. Shitloads.

 

Anyone got figures?
