Fire extinguisher looks shiny :D
Is it CAMS approved though?
They need to be if your going to participate in any kind of motorsport event.


It does say cams approved in small lettering on the box, i chose it mainly for the shine. I haven't planned on doing motorsport, although if the new dragstrip goes ahead i would consider building a drag car.

My faves are all in the Clarendon and eastern hills (like Adel Lobethal Rd) areas.


Its a pity some of the best roads are gravel around the hills.

With the way you were talking about hills roads, it sounded like you enjoy going around corners fast, so i thought you might be interested in Motorkhanas, Hillclimbs, etc.

Why is that a pitty? More fun :evil:

Small update really, just been enjoying some turn key reliability and haunting the hills, saving money for round 2.

I have found my exhaust attracts a few wannabes who think they can match celica power. I try to restrain myself :D

We have another two members with GT4s in the club now.
We'll have to organise a GT4 cruise... we could get 7 GT4s out if everyone comes along :)

I didnt get an invite either! :(

Maybe we should organise a GT4 cruise.
There are 4 of us on here, and i might be able to persuade Kane to come out in his 185 as well.

Sorry! My mate Matt turned rocked up and was "lets cruise". Friday afternoon long weekend traffic sucked though. Shit all the way down to sellicks. That was this video:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0DE-B1ilLzE. It wasn't anything special. I would like to do a South rd to yankalilla / hindmarsh valley to victor to goolwa to currancy creek to meadows back via clarendon (the fleurieu peninsula loop) A long drive with a lunch stop. Or any other suggestions, i'm easy. I still haven't put 2000k's on the car since i got it 18 months ago.

Thurs/fridays are good for me and i have 26/27 june off as well.
