hi jon glad your back online,my weekend went very well.

we did the cacklefest as promised,got a small 2nd gear burnout done in the lanes (rude not to considering)
the engine was faultless and seems to make a load of power,we had a small issue concerning the front wheel bearings but that has been taken care of..i achieved all i set out to do..which is rare but i had a good crew featuring bryan whitfield (role reversal as it is usually me chasing him round the track)

the pit area with the oddlot drag racing team was awesome with its home cinema showing old school drag dvds all night,bbq courtesy of wild willie fadster..will put up a few pics soon as it was a great weekend..

all the best...
