I tried to set one up, but it kept crashing. :( So I turned the video privacy to public. Hopefully everyone can view it until I can sort out my youtube account.

Thought I should update this with the sad news.

Blew a head gasket and Front Main seal or Sump gasket at the last hill climb.

Also welded the diff beforehand, and had never driven with a weldy previously so I was trying to come to terms with the understeer and oversteer differences.
All in all, it was a shit day for times, but I still had fun being on the track.

Skipping round 3 due to pre-made commitments, but the car will be back out and stronger than ever at round 4 on August 5th!

Then after that, (If I source this new job I'm after) Some serious cash can start being poured into this!

Shame the video sucks. :(

I have a mate running the ARC this year and they bought this camera set-up, and we used it at my hillclimb to experiment. Shame it wasn't perfect already or I'd have a decent video, haha.

So the hillclimb can be called a marginal success.
The car was great and performed well all day. Can't say the same about the weather though. It was windy, sunny, windy, rainy, sunny, windy, rainy, really rainy, windy, sunny, etc etc.
Was really hard to get into a rhythm and my times varied from 40.56 (1 hundredth better than my previous PB, all the way to a 44.23). The start line has lots of rubber on it, and when it's wet, grip is at a minimum. Trying to launch a RWD car up an incline on a slippery surface is definitely a challenge to say the least.

I'm now setting my sights on the Henry Lawson Memorial Rally!
Henry Lawson and my old man were inseparable friends. I have very fond memories of Henry as a child when I used to play with his sons at their house, and they'd come round for dinner at ours. Unfortunately my old man will be in Norway during the event and will be too busy leading up to the event to help me, so I'm bringing it upon myself to get the car there and have a lot of fun for a good reason.

My list is small, but I have some pre-arranged commitments and a new job to work around, so it may turn into a sprint to the finish.
I need to:
- Fit some shouldered and tapered lugs into the rear brace bar for another harness.
- Fit another harness
- Make a sumpgaurd and mount it
- Put some attention into some wiring issues
- Mildy tune the webers
- Acquire 14s and fit Gravel tyres
- Fit a passenger seat (If all else fails, I will use the standard seat)

So, this weekend... It begins.
