    Driven to Drive 2016

    http://perthoffroadpromotions.com.au/?page_id=702

    Entry forms and car regs are up, come down to Manji and have some fun.

    They've opened Extreme up to 37s + twin locked this year, modifieds are still 33s and single locked, but beware of the Suzuki brigade !

    We're doing our entry, slightly modified tracks this time, but from what we've been told still good for the SWB and smaller cars.

    Pete.

    Was very fun last year, such a relaxed atmosphere with even the top extreme guys came and talked to us modified guys.

    Plus the prizes are huge, we won modified category plus 2 stages. We should be better this year now we actually have more then 1/2 steering lock, better rear locker and changed tyres. Plus we know the car well ( was finished a week beforehand) so it's been proven.

    Can't wait!

    So what's the go with soft tops like Suzukis and Heeps? Said something about fibreglass roofs were not allowed in the regs I think?

    We have a sheet of 5mm ally speed sign as our roof, all passed regs. Also have a simple half cage for the rear. The jeep that won it last year had a hard top on it.

    Uh we're 10 in modified, team Mighty Mouse.

    Hmm, no locker at all ? should be interesting, especially in the mud to wall climb, we ran a welded diff last year and only 1/2 turning lock on our steering due to pitman arm failure, this year running full lock woith a spartan locker in the rear, helped push us up that hill.

    night run in the middle of the speedway is great fun too. Make sure you come say hi, it's a bright yellow short wheelbase Sierra.

    Yeah im thinking of welding or spool, I got a verbal quote of $900 for a start of the range locker/Truetrac plus full day install (another ~$8-900?). They Dana diffs, so nothing special about them

    Agree, after what we went through last year, and being June this year I'd be welding the rear, even if you need to find a spare diff afterwards, being a Dana should be able to flog one from a jeep? Lsd by itself would possibly not be enough either unless it's completely tight.

    We watched twin locked cars fail on the same section that single locked suzukis were just making it up.

    Possibly by late now, think scrutineering for Perth guys is this Saturday, and we've got it during the week, only got the car running last night, still has shafts etc to be bolted in. We'll be on a deadline to even test the car beforehand

    Hopefully if this one goes well again, they'll plan for another in November like last time, and we'll have the other car ready and setup. Just got to get it regoe'd first.

    So cars running, been out to the car wash and gave it a clean, will go for a quick easy run the bush near here just to check FPRs and boost level while in 4wd lo etc, and how it reacts, and get used to this clunking locker.

    Hope everyone passed scrutineering, we're having ours this week down here.

    Yeah pissed it in, we just need to change the front recovery points on the patrol

    Went out for a bit of a shakedown run up power lines afterwards, took both cars and my v8 cruiser
    Definitely need some sliders on the zook and the cruiserthe.
    Only damage was the compressor on the patrol died after filling up its last tyre which we'll need to fix to keep the lockers happening and minced a side step on the cruiser (no sill damage though)

    Really happy with all the cars and after I get my tax done will get tyres and sliders done and start entering the cruiser.

    Sliders are the best thing we did to our car, also lifting the transfer case so high up under the car we've now got a full underbody 5mm thick bash guard that covers box/transfer/output shafts.



    just see the slider in that pic, but helped us save that panel that day, if they run this course again, hopefully we won't be the last through and have all the logs dislodged and fucked up.

    We're completely ready. Cars pretty dialled, new tyres on ( Silverstone mt-117 xtremes ), we've given full test runs and haven't put a rod out. Only need to get the new bump stops on during the week for the fronts.

    Packing spare box, transfer, front and rear axles into a crate tomorrow night, and then give it a quick clean for 2nd scrutineering on Sat. We're heading down pretty early on friday this time, not leaving it as late as we did last year.

    Hoping they got permission for drum fires 'cause it's going to be fucking cold.

    More or less the same boat here.

    Probably heading out from perth around 12ish.
    My old man lives in Manji so will be staying with him.
    Infinity gas hot water for showers, sauna in the garage to have a relaxing cook and slow combustion fire in the living room.
    Add that to the electric blankets on the beds and the closed in cab of the patrol, it's shaping up as a pretty comfortable weekend hahhahaha
