Evening all. I know I've been a bit crappy in the race report area but I didn't race the Day of the Drags and last weekend I was supposed to be racing at Gunnedah. After driving the 4 hours up there, paying to stay in a cabin overnight and waking up to pouring rain, we drove 4 hours back home because the racing was cancelled due to rain. Sometimes I think it might be better to take up jet boat racing. Enough complaining, let's race. Off down to Sydney we went with just a bit of trepidation. The previous week we'd had rain, rain and more bloody rain. Five HAMBsters turned up to do battle. Ezio, Steve, Jeff, me and Georgia in Gerard's car again. As I posted in Round 1, my car has been running slower each event, but does it consistently, meaning I can dial a time and usually run that time all day. After round one I felt it was running out of puff toward the end of the run. I decided to take the 1 1/4" S.U.s off and put 1 3/4" back on. A real "suck it and see" trial. First race was against Steve. The lights ran down and I stepped off the clutch. 60 foot of tyre smoke later and I realized this thing is running better. Steve's not getting away like he normally does and I'm gaining on him. Steve picks up another gear and finally pulls away. Steve runs 13.783 and I run 14.194. I've never run that quick at Sydney and last round I was dialing 15's because of the way it was running. Might've found the problem do you reckon? I'm having trouble with the internet so I'll have to continue tomorrow.
