Re: AAWDC Fun day 14/8 FINAL Program & PLANNING + Photies!!!

To all at the event, thanks!!! It was a great day, and although I was only co-pilot in one of the Nissans, I have to say thanks to everyone that made the day possible. The hilux obstacle was great and we again got the chance to put faces to some of the names.

The turbo now also needs to pressurize this additional volume causing turbo lag. Downside is that without a...
