^^^ Yeah, apparently you could run E85 and not appear on the results. Had one of the guys I ran early modern with who is east coast based keen to come over (keen I reckon) but his car is Octagon spec and he got the news he couldnt run in the results, so I dont think he will bother now.

Hmmm, is E85 specifically outlawed or is it just the bigger injectors that are not allowed?

......because, I can guarantee they won't have the equipment to measure the injector size and secondly, wouldn't bother unless someone put them up to it.

As for the rims, like Blaise said, you'll get away with it as long as there's a few others that also do it and you don't closely beat someone who's 100% legal who knows you did it......???

Thats drug money, you could do THC for that including getting the car there and accomodation!

Even TT is not that expensive to enter and that is a 5 1/2 day event!

Just putting this out there incase anyone is looking at doing the triple header THC, TWP and TT We have been storing large amounts of rally cars in Hobart, last year we had the JWS cars, Sammy Stevens Evo, and a few other cars in our storage workshop and home workshop

So if you need somewhere to work on/store the cars let me know and i will hook you up with my old man/brother/mozza (if you don't already know them)

I think they charge by the cartons of beer and sexual favours!

I had a long conversation this morning and apparently the numbers for Targa West are crap this year.

The simple fact is this. Why would you pay to de tune your car to run in Targa West will all its repeated and reverse stages on rubber that you will never use again. Going one step further, why would you build a car in the first place solely to run Targa West? If you build a car to Targa West specs it is not going to be competitive over east.

Yes the social side of the rally is good with everyone staying in the same spot but it is a

Might take you up on this thanks. Will wait and see how High Country goes but it does not make a lot of sense to bring the thing back each time.

^^^ Hearing you Brendon. It just doesnt make sense. As others have said, you can ship your car east, get yourself there, pay for accomdation and do THC for Targa West money. 180 odd competitive kms, the roads are epic, (inlcudes a run up buller at the end of each day....no better way to work up a thirst) there are no repeated stages other than buller (would happily do that more than twice) and the atmosphere at the top of the mountain each night is great.

Re your car, I left mine in melbs between THC and TWP and had TMR prep it. (cant think of any more three lettered abbreviations starting with T. ) I wanted to do some extra work to it before TT (stroker ) so I brought it back, but ideally if you send the car there well prepped hopefully needing nothing more than the ususal minor stuff between rounds and have someone who can sort it at that end, leave it east (in Melbs after THC and then leave it in Tassie after TWP to save extra ferry trips) and bring it home after TT you will save some $. Drive on drive off cars are cheap on the ferry (car trailers arent) but it does cost a few $ for a sleeper for the night so leaving it close to Devonport and flying in and out of tassie would be the go after TWP.

Happy to chat anytime about some of the logistics stuff from WA.
