sinco customs

I'd like to say a big thanks to SINCO CUSTOMS who I'm very proud to say have sorted me out with one of their works of art, a sr20det exhaust manifold. One look at this manifold and you go wow, but really spending time to look at the workmanship that has gone into it and you truly understand just how good these guys are at what they do and that they are the best out there! So stay tuned for the up dates for the power upgrade coming soon. Check out their web site SINCO CUSTOMS

D1nz round 2 manfeild

First of all I'd like to thank the GARAGE H boys Nick and homo opps i mean Simon for all the help and fun times over the weekend!!! Cheers boys and everyone else for helping me out.
I ended the weekend in 4th place with some pretty crazy driving along the way but fully stoked on that,  big ups to all the rookies drivers for stepping it up and putting on 1 hell of a show and showing every 1 that we can drive just as well as the D1 drivers,  but with our whole cars worth maybe as much as their wheels!

 keep posted for the full up date and pics

powercriuse taupo

Powercriuse Taupo is the next event on the calender come along and check it out, its fast becoming one of the biggest events in Australasia.


After weeks of preping the car trying to save enough coin and many sleepless night worrying if the poor old van would make it towing my car all the way to powerbuilt tools raceway, it was time to leave.
Me and rach left rotorua early morning to get to Otaki to pick up tyres and change them over before the earll start thursday to get the 8 30 ferry, Dan and Giz turned up at about 6am and in true fashion i was still in bed, and trying to turn around on the lawn got stuck and had to tow the van off the lawn. so the trip got off to a great start!

The ferry ride was good with alot of other guys on the same ferry the girls were sick of us talking about cars already. the drive to Christchurch went well, and drove through a pretty cool snow storm just south of kaikoura.

My main man Dan Walker doing all the hard work for me,

The days drifting didnt really go as planed,  I qualified in 8th place.  as you have 5 runs and the average of those five runs is where you end up, i did 4 runs that were all exactly the same and had smoth lines but i think i miss counted and thought i had done 5 so went a little harder as i was getting alittle board and tryed to hook 4th coming out of the 1sr coner but missed the gear and stright lined so put my average way down.
dan wanted his own car to drive so knock to geather this little beauty between runs!
The 1st run of the top 16 battles didnt really go to plan eather, i was leading 1st run and went out with my be alittle to much confidence and didnt warm the tyres up enough came in to the 1st coner with good angle but just as i went to get on the power the front wheels started to lose grip and sledged the front causeing me to go off line straighten and hand the win over to the other guy, in the chase i was all over him whand he made a mistake but in the judges eyes wasnt enough to win, so that was the end of that, and good learning expereance if anything!
we had a sweet trip driving back north and kaikoura area is so beautiful with the snow right behind the town
the van made the trip no worrys at all, so till next time keep charging
