Wasn't me Scott - as far as I know Frank is tucked up in the shed.

I'd need at least two tanks of fuel to get to the Big 4 - looks like I've got an FC doppleganger out there.  Smiley

The day finally came and the effort to get Frank to the Nats paid off.

Photo via the Street Machine Facebook page, via GOA350's camera:

Frank didn't miss a beat for the entire Nats weekend, albeit for a loose battery cable and dodgy radiator hose clamps. There are a few things to work on, however I'm going to shed the car for a few weeks so I can look at it with a new set of eyes and new-found eagerness, as it's been a long, tiring road.

Well done Josh, looks great. Bet you're glad you kept it now!! I'm sad I missed the Tassie Nats but will get down your way when mine's done. Long way to go yet...All the best, Martyn

Thanks guys.

It was a mad rush to get it done - the car was 'finished' (sort of) on Good Friday morning - the drive to the Nats was the shakedown run.

Good luck to you Martyn and Graeme, getting your cars done. You are both very welcome to come for a spin when and if you get down to Hobart - the jury is out as to whether I will go to Toowoomba.

Wayne, your car was absent from the Nats?

So here I was thinking that Frank was basically finished...

I had the opportunity to purchase a triple throttle-body Sonic Injection EFI manifold, so I sold my soul and put a deposit down. 300+ horsepower coming right up  Grin Grin Grin

Anyone want to buy some Webers?

Regards,

Josh.

G'day Josh,

These cars are never finished  Grin Grin Grin  Sounds like a good score and will certainly make the beast get up and go....

Trouble with mine is I don't want to stop driving it to do all the detail work that needs to be done.  Hopefully it will piss down rain for a long time and maybe that will stop me driving long enough to get the little stuff done....

Cheers, Graeme

Fingers crossed it will rain for you then, Graeme! Or maybe not, so you can keep driving her!

The thing is that I always wanted one of these manifolds, and was disappointed when manufacturing stopped. I couldn't afford one then, and I still can't now... however it's one of those things that I needed to do.

You're right Graeme, these things are never finished. It keeps things interesting, and bank accounts empty.

Regards,

Josh.

Ta for the booster info. Were you happy with performance? Regards, Martyn

I was just looking over this old thread. After having the car out on the road for a while now, I can say that the brakes are bloody spot on - not too much travel with this booster, either. I was going to go for four wheel discs, but the finned drums on the rear are more than suffice.

My race-driver mate has entered Frank into the Holden regularity event at Baskerville Raceway this weekend. This means that Frank will be racing on the track with Weddo's red FC racer.

My mate has a 'you bend it, you fix it' policy over his head. I'm feeling bloody nervous...

Hey Josh,
I wouldn't worry about Weddo,
I would be more worried about Ellis and his Humpy's.




They are on the way and have it in for the "squarees"  Cheesy

Cheers Stewy   Cool
