    @Tyrie they've already started a 'facebook petition' to get that revoked.
    I'd say the hipsters are worried their 7K gay pride round about will be ruined.

    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.

    I don't think many people that go to the summernats give one fuck about some shit looking paint job on a roundabout tbh. But hipsters gonna hip.

    Skids on the colour roundabout needs to happen during the day. Looks like Braddon closed overnights.

    I've been thinking about what the legalitys are for trying to sell racing fuel out of the drum outside summernats. The way I look at it if you're a mobile mechanic you're allowed to fill the tank and you're also allowed to invoice for that fuel. So whats stopping me from doing a mobile job on a car even though it only involves the refuel of the tank and invoicing for it? I was thinking a drum of E85 a drum of methanol and one of C16 or some shit my dads ute can take over a ton.

    I'd like to think there are some legal guidelines preventing any old mechanic from dealing race fuel in the street. Even if there isn't (unlikely), handling highly flammable liquids in large quantities off the back of a ute in potentially extreme heat conditions sounds like a terrible idea. On top of the the potential for you to become liable for damages incurred should you have a minor accident in doing so, let alone the sort of liabilities involved if you leaked 60l of flammable liquid on a public road/exploded something...

    There is fluid transfer systems made for highly flammable liquids. But yea if something did go wrong I could imagine the government would be raping you.\

    Next year I might sell it from my workshop.

    Can any entrants get me this years prices so I can evaluate how much profit I possibly could make.

    I think you'd find the people that need the fuel will either have it sorted within the Nats, or would be happy to travel further than outside the gates to get the fuel they need.

    Yea you can get it from summernats but I heard they have exuberant pricing on the fuel. I was told you're only allowed to enter with whats in your fuel tank so they force you to buy their expensive fuel. I don't know how you would go rocking up to a hotel with 200l of fuel.

    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.

    No, its called abiding by what GovCo wants. The prices arnt exorbitant, your just paying a fair price for the dg & work cover permits etc.

    There is very little "proper race fuel" ie C16, MaxNos etc used by nats entrants, most of it is Meth, Ethanol or Pump Fuel. I can tell you though, as the aussie importer for Sunoco Racing, I have to tell the Govt who our authorised resellers are (leaded or unleaded doesnt matter), that way if your caught selling any form of race fuel & not on that list, prepare to get probed without lube.

    So are you saying that if a car needs some fuel in it's tank for testing after I just installed the engine I can't invoice my customer for that fuel? If so I'm going to discuss this with the MTA.

    If it is a hydrocarbon based fuel, ie; a drum type not legally considered a pump fuel or legal for schedule G as per cams, if you sell someone a drum, or just fill up their tank, you need to be down as an approved reseller. If you have just bought 20l of Power Plus to put in a customers car you have done the work on, to stick it on the dyno or run it it, then no you dont.

    Agree that shutting down Braddon is dumb, but this idea getting around FB of cruising around Kingston Foreshore instead is even dumber.

    All that's going to do is piss more people off. You can't even run an argument there that the residents should be expecting this sort of thing one weekend a year.

    I have seen a pic getting around of doing "blockies" up mort st, right onto girrahween street, right onto Torrens St, right Cooyong st, the right back onto Mort St.


    Hume is a good place for skids
    Barton is good for racing



    Everything ticked off?
