Put me down Greg. Gotta have the only UK GT in the club go down.
I remember beating pdu-nz last time by 0.1 secs when his wagon was CVT M6.

Robbo, I reckon you'll do a flat 16 sec in the W20V. I will see if Tony is interested in bringing
his 25X down the track to see how it compares.

Looking forward to it.
Greg, I reckon we should open it up to the other Nissan clubs, at least SDU.

It was grudge racing all day BJ!! If you wanted to race someone you just organised it so you lined up with them. Everyone was really cool about letting people move etc it was great! How else do you think EvlDan and Will(I think) raced each other about ten times in a row!

Only 7 weeks left folks. Only 20 paid so far. If you want to run your car, you need to front up with the cash.

had a idea on the way to work this morning, wat if we put a gold coin into a 'pot' and whoever cuts a perfect light 1st ie .000 gets the gold. Or whoever cuts the closest reaction time to .000 at the end of the day gets the gold. If multiple people get the same closest reaction time eg: 3 people get .001, and there is say 90 bucks in the pot then it gets dish out evenly....30 bucks each. Bit of fun for the day maybe. Just a idea, wat do u all think?
Title: Re: DRAG DAY 9th of may numbers please

^^^ Could be fun, I'm in if everybody is keen.

We're at the stage of first to pay will play so get those payments in & guarantee yourself a spot. Other clubs have been invited & are buzzing on this like bees around a honey pot so you can expect that they will start snapping up spots soon.

sounds simlar to wat i did to my mondeo. I had an inverted clutch plate when the took it apart. as well as a stuffed flywheel and release bearing.

It still drives in 1st 2n and 3rd, you just have to start the car in 1st gear and change without using the clutch. And the clutch mechanism is still working fine so im hoping its just the release bearing.

Can i sugest a bit of prep work before you come down.

Make sure you dont forget your helmet, i dont loan mine out.

You dont need a fire extinguisher, but its a damn good idea regardless.

Tread on tires is a scrutineering requirement.

Battery must be secure.

A catch can or plumbed back crankcase vent.

Wof and reg.

If you have changed your tires when you get to the track, please double check wheel nuts.

We will be leaving aux by 7 to get there and get things ticking over.

Let me know if that would be allowed and what sort of gear will she need to be in passenger in the car.

My partner was wondering if she would be allowed to be a passenger while we drag. She would even be happy if it was towards the end of the day runs. Just wants to get a feel for it.

Let me know if that would be allowed and what sort of gear will she need to be in passenger in the car.



Pretty sure that last time this was acceptable just that the passenger needed to have helmet and seatbelt. Anyone else confirm this ?

Nah never seen passengers either...

Can we please make sure that someone gets a rain date off the strip people before the day so we can tell people who aren't on here and don't lose interest etc. Also an early call would be good if it's a no go :)

Not to rain on anyones parade, but here is a quick blurb of this weekends weather..


A deep low the size of Australia will dish out foul weather this weekend and a dismal week to follow.

The Weather Watch Centre says storm clouds are gathering around the South Island. The system could take hold on Friday bringing an entire week of unsettled weather to most of the country.

"We're talking heavy rain for some western regions in both islands and possible heavy rain in eastern areas of the South Island, snow is also likely across the South Island to low levels in the east such as Canterbury".

Weather analyst Philip Duncan says strong winds, possibly severe gale force, will surround the low but it is too far out to know whether it will affect land. The large pool of unstable air may bring thunderstorms, hail storms and heavy showers to many regions, particularly in the west.

The coldest weather is likely to develop on Saturday or Sunday in the South Island and move into the North Island early next week with strong to gale sou'westers in coastal areas.

Snow is likely to close alpine roads in the South Island.





Hopefully this doesn't effect you guys on Saturday.

Weatheris not looking like it is going to be great.

(https://primeracarclub.co.nz/forum/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fimg.photobucket.com%2Falbums%2Fv87%2FCairnsJo%2Frain-nzni-2009050518-78.gif&hash=32d1926833fd6ea10cafb8717be0115e)

however I'll stay positive and and we ghoep for the best.

I do have the spreadsheet from last year.

What will save a lot of time is if we could get the details of people and their cars before the day (I know some wont get online between now and then.

We need :

Drivers Name
Car Model (ie Primera P10 DE, Primera P11 VET, Skyline R33 GTR)
Transmission - Auto or Manual
Aspiration - NA or Turbo/Supercharged
Drive - FWD, RWD or 4WD

I can then build the majority of the spreadsheet before the day.

Last year we had a few issues with the printig - getting the drivers for the printer set up and working. If someone has a printer in mind and a laptop they plan on using, then I suggest trial setting it up on the laptop ASAP to ensure you dont run in to issues on the day.

The spreadsheet has a template on it to allow it to print timeslips for the drivers based on the information added to the spreadsheet. I think at the last one, the staff at the dragstrip let us start printing from their own system at some point, but I am not sure they will let us do this again so it is better to have our own printer set up and working.

The fallback is that as long as the data is being entered on to pieces of paper and then in to the spreadsheet, that we can reprint anyones timeslips after the event.

Keeping the spreadsheet up to date also meant we were able to keep track of the "leaderboard" for the day

ie fastest time overall
best trap speed
fastest FWD
fastest RWD
Fastest Primera
fastest Skyline

etc etc etc.

Kieran/Kim - want to give me a call about the spreadsheet thing and if/how we want to use it ?

I think that I can build up a lot of the driver and car information myself but would def be useful to get people to post back with their details

Thats kinda what we did last time and while the cars were being scruitenered i ran around each driver and grabbed the details then it just need to be imputed into the spreadsheet.
Getting all the laptops, printers and details into the spreadsheet is what held us up last time but it was also a last minute rush, if we are there really early and setting up straight away it gives more time for this stuff to be sorted.

lol yea thats how ya do it.  When i was in the Honda club, at one od their drag days we had to drive down the track, then the side road, then straight back down - was quite a sight seeing 30+ cars on the track at once. 

But it does dry the track out quite well, took about 5-10 mins.

As you type that Brendon I am hearing hail hitting the window here in Mt Wellington. Not being defeatist or anything but I think even it is fines up a ltitle tomorrow, the wet track is going to suck (even with drying it out by driving on it).. IMHO, it would be better to postpone for a better day.
