Re: TUNING / RACING TIPS

These videos are really wonderful and entertaining to watch. The guy delivering has a dry sense of humour and makes all concepts easy to absorb. Learn about not being stuck in Coles, Wallyworld or Dear God!!!

Re: Surf to Shorncliffe Rally / Cruise 25,26 February 2017

Yep. Something like 10 years in a row missing the wedding anniversary to head south. Not this time. I have a very understanding wife.
