    DOH forgot to put QLD in the thread title! Can one of the other moderators please change that as I can only moderate the workshop.

    cheers

    Are you trying to use a GMail account? I don't think the forum let me use mine so I had to use another one I had.

    cheers

    it's all good now.. I used my optusnet email.. hehe

    I guess they dont use webmails to avoid spams/spywares and stuff..

    Lee are you definitely coming?

    Yes I'm definitely going - I'll meet earlier with the other GC people at the Yatala BP if you wanted to meet me there?

    cheers

    Hey,

    just got back from the cruise and it was lots of fun - would have been up to 30 cars! It was very well organised and not too much silly business (just the right amount :D ).

    It has highlighted that my wagon NEEDS the following:
    1. Better brakes
    2. Harder Suspension

    and after trying to keep up with some seriously tough Evos I now WANT twice as much power :D

    My passenger (an EvoOz member who's lost his license) started off calling it a "family car" but by the end admitted that it could certainly "get up and boogie" with the rest of the Evos which was good. He's kindly nicknamed it the SS Legnum lol

    Here are some pics (taken on my phone unfortunately as the fiancee pinched the digi camera).

    Can't wait to get a good size cruise of VR-4s organised!

    cheers

    Still with a mobile phone... good lord that gives you an idea of what we could organise. Nice to see the EVOs out in force though!

    Good work Lee.

    What was the general opinion of the VR-4 amongst the Evo Owners ?

    Hmmm, not a lot of interest to be honest :)
    But I pretty much kept up ok - only had a couple of "clench" worthy moments lol

    It looked pretty plain sitting there on it's own amongst all those evos. Hopefully next time I can take a few OzVR4 crew with me and have some mods fitted!

    No worries Christian, you can't do much about stuff like that.

    Yes, Eric is a big lad, and was a good copilot too :)

    cheers
