Just bring a helmet, enclosed shoes, wrist to ankle cotten clothing, $50 entry fee, and $150 for an ANDRA license if you plan to go quicker than 12.00.

They only allow 180 in, so don't get there too late if it is expected to be busy, and it has been busy lately as they were closed for a couple of months over the middle of winter.

I'm surprised it's 12 sec, at Willowbank I'm pretty sure 11 sec is the cut off.

ANDRA rules are Australia wide:

DDL (Divisional Day Licence) is 12.000 or slower (you get one for a cay with your entry to WSID, Willowbank, Kwinana, etc).

SSL (Super Street Licence) is 11.000 or slower

UDL (Unlimited Drag Licence) is 10.999 or quicker

So do we notify them that our cars are quicker than 12 sec and just fill out another form to get a licence on the day? Sorry for the newbie question..

If you do an 11 they will get you to fill out the form for the license where you pickup your slip. I was lucky last time as they had run out and let me go on. They did warn me to be very careful as I picked up each slip. They throw you out for a 10 without a cage. Hoping to test that soon!!

are you going to invest in a roll cage Adrian? or just allow them to kick you out if and when you hit the magic number.

No cage for me until car is deregistered when I have space for a trailer. Cage in a street car is a defect waiting to happen and is obvious to police driving past your car.

If I get a 10 it will be much easier to decide if I go to the drags again!!

you get a DDL when you pay for your entry to a drag strip. It's only good for that day. If you break 12.000 you need an SSL to keep racing and they cost $121

It's Justin's car. There won't be any 135s breaking 10.999 in the near future, our cars are too heavy and don't make enough power.

If you do run a ten second pass, the list of ANDRA technical specifications is quite long. It's more than just a cage.

Maybe not in Australia but Oldbooster ran an 11.154 a while ago in the States and that was on stock turbos. Now he has RBs so I cant imagine it will be long before he breaks that 11 second barrier. Having said that, he was on 16 inch rims with DRs plus race gas and nitrous as well as all your other "goodies" so its far from easy.

That was my WRX we were talking about. 11.3 @ 123 now. Turbo is out getting tweaked and losing 50kg, and it should do 10.x. A couple weeks ago an EVO with drag slicks and full trim (street car) with stock internals engine (but dog box) did a 10.4 @ 131 with a 1.5 short time with just 320kW ATW. I reckon my car can do about 10.9 at 125 with the tweaks I am doing.

A 10 will be done on N54 eventually, but we are way behind the guys in the states having not had an 11 over here yet. It is going to take a car setup to do it with drag radials, suspension to suit, big turbos, meth and some weight reductions and/or NOS. A few guys in the US are going this way, but not seeing it over here at the moment. Justin's car is closest in terms of power, so will do good MPH, but the other things are required to get the ET down.

Hey Gents,

here are the time slips from our first meet at WSID.

As you can see the ET's suffered as a result of the 60' times.

However as most of you will know, the trap speed is what indicates the true potential of the vehicle.

Whilst we are not finished by a long shot,

I would like to take the opportunity to thank all the guys involved in the ongoing "build".

Namely Peter and the boys at Advan Performance, once again for their superb workmanship and their exacting track preparation of the car.

Of course a big shout out to Adrian of Vishnu Tuning for both his expertise and his tireless enthusiasm, to ensure the N54 power plant performs to its potential.

Last but by no means least, kudos to Dale aka DMM, who was behind the wheel on the night.

He managed to pull off 3 consistent passes and ripped through the gears like a mad man.

FYI,

all 3 passes were on street tyres, on 19" wheels no less.

No race gas was used and we chose to err on the side of caution with regards the tune, given that it was its first "proper" outing at the Creek.

We will be returning on the 7th of September and if not then 14th, with considerably more fire power, in an effort to give you guys something to really talk about.

Cheers,

JD.

Is it actually legal to drive our cars with the back seat out? Just wondering if it's worth doing it next time I go... I would think taking the front passenger seat out is definitely illegal?
