Went down there yesterday via Toowoomba, came back straight through Warwick-Bris, roads are all open and pretty good, there is still roadworks in a few spots and theres 2 sections over the range where its down to one lane with works/repairs going on, so expect a couple of holdups but they were pretty minor and short.

Just cruise down nice and easy, most of the bad potholes that were there before Xmas are all fixed up but still one or 2 rough patches,

If you want to post up here what day/time you're going we may be able to tee up into groups for the cruise down.

The Warwick guys have been out mowing the grass and tidying up for us, its looking green and sweet out there, and they've been repairing a couple of bits in the braking area that had a small amount of water damage, and they're as keen to kick the year off with a bang as we are!

All going according to plan we will probably be an hour or so in front of you, if we're running late (not like me) will give you a call.

:shock: hey guys pulled the diff out thismorning and a bit of shaving but could not find anything myself ,so i went for a dash to aussie diffs at the coast " mopar muscle sponsor " and got told the same as i thaught, so said slap a new set of gears in while its out. so i am thinking the planetry in the tranz or something along those lines has let go the car is heading out to get ladder bar set up put in so i will rip the tranz out then and take it back ,i think you should get more than 16 runs from it.

i also need a new set of slicks wich were new also but are now down to the canvas in a bit of a flat spot.

for anyone that was not there it locked up just before the line i had been crossing at around 107 mph ,i did manage to keep it in my lane and of the wall and had time to check oil preassure then shut the motor of . i think the scariest thing about it was that it didnt scare me :shock:
