    Ute sat in the garage for 2 weeks unloved. Last night i finally got around to fitting the new upper rear control arms i bought a few weeks back, and also threw in a pair of new heavy duty Pedders Sports Ryder rear shocks. Massive difference, the rear end feels way more planted now. The old shocks were pretty tired.

    Headed out to Bathurst today with FLI355 to pick up his new Group A. Took the opportunity to get some happy snaps on the mountain while we were there.










    Then once i got home, a quick wash to remove all the dead bugs, and it was off to Gregory Hills Autobarn again for their monthly meet.

    Like the way you rack up the miles enjoying that car,it's a good thing.
    an easy fix is get a mate to drive in front of you at 60 then 80 then 100 and mark in on your speedo with some liquid paper.

    I already had over 200k before the re-paint, more wont hurt. It's getting the odd little chip here and there but yeah, no point leaving it in the garage to rot away. I like to use (and abuse) it often.
    Couldn't resist hanging the tail out once on the way home tonight.....

    Perfect car to use and abuse I reckon. Modern enough to drive anywhere in comfort, can still get all the parts in the world for cheap and it's like dating a hooker, there's nothing you'll feel guilty about doing to it because you know it's had worse

    Been a bit busy the last month or so, hadn't taken the ute out anywhere for a few weeks until this morning. Nopics and I headed to the Warwick Hotel for the first ever Morning with Muscle meet. A bunch of nice cars turned up, most of the usual bunch from all the western Sydney meets I go to.

    A great day to try out the new camera we bought yesterday. Finally I can take decent pics without borrowing cameras off others.

    Love the ute mate- it seems like you have been through a lot together. About the Wayne Gardner thing- I'm surprised the old guy even knows what bookface is, let alone can manage a reply!

    That took bloody forever. Fuck you Photobucket.

    Ute has been having a rest while my brother and I built the new Silvia. I did take it out to All Holden Day back in August last year and hung out with the Injected5L gang again.









    Then FLI355 and I entered the Bargo primary school car show in October. We both came away with a trophy, his was much much bigger and well deserved. I was stoked to get anything really. Sponsors choice in the plastic bumper bar category. There was a fuckload of nice cars entered too, so really happy about that.










    Nopics bought me a sweet WGR VR race car 1/18th model for Christmas. Been waiting for years for them to make one of these. Love it!



    Then at the end of December I entered in the Harry's Cafe EOM, last one for the year.





    And was lucky enough to have the coil shit itself 2 minutes from home afterwards
    Thankfully my mate drove out to me at 11pm in his VS Senator to loan me his coil off his car so i could limp it home, then drive straight back to him on the side of the road to return it. The ute has still not spent a single night outside since being painted.

    This is obviously assuming all your AUX outputs are doing something. Ie idle control, and the other does water spray, and the other updates your Instagram automatically etc.

    It was her birthday so we went out for a picnic and a drive in the country.
    I do recall seeing a bunch of cars in Uncle Leos out the corner of my eye, by the time i turned my head we'd gone past. Where did you guys go?

    I had to remove Injected5L from my newsfeed, i didn't leave though. For every one good post there are about 50 shit ones from retards, it was clogging up my shit. But i miss out on events now unless somebody tags me

    Intending to fit my new coil this weekend with a view to running it at WSID this Wednesday. Last time out i only managed 15.2, but the 3.7 gears have really woken it up so im curious to see if it will hit the high 14's.

    Went down through the National park and came out at Bald Hill then finished at Coledale RSL. Was a really good run and probably my favorite so far. And yer the numbers on Injected have blown up and it's getting a bit hard to try and control everything, but now that I know that next run we do I'll tag you in it so you get a notification.

    And I hope Classic Collectible does a VN SS cause looking at the Group A biante one it looks shit...

    After 3 runs in the low 15's, finally sorted my launches and flat shifted my way to a best of 14.8@95mph.
    Still more runs to go.

    Best for the night was a 14.82@93mph, just edged out my 14.84@95mph.

    Made my goal of under 15sec and drove home with an unbroken car. Win.
