Sydney Meet Up....save the date

if your free on Sunday 5th December you had better be tagging along because im giving you guys nearly a whole months notice.

i will continue to update this thread with the rendevous and route details so keep an eye out.

rendevous will most probably be sydney olympic park as it is fairly central to everyone and the route will either be a drive down south or into the mountains...

look forward to hearing from you guys.

any imput you guys have is also welcomed.

Which car is he taking? think he said he had a 147 GTA

Im going to go as far as Penrith or so and turn back. As I want to keep the Ks low on my car. Also V6s drink alot of fuel.

Well today was a great day to meet everyone from the Sydney Australian Ausalfa website.

Was very impressed with the different setups on everyones cars in comparison to my own.

And it was great to open up the throttle on my own car to check out its full capabilities

Is your car a 2.0L Marx !! I thought it was a 3.2 GTA !!


I was wondering when you were right behind me and I put the power down in my V6 that you didnt follow me. I just thought you were in the wrong gear or just intentionally backed off.

Whats your suspension setup like - is it comfortable enough?

haha yea well i was in 4th for the most parts and 3rd for a couple of corners. its really a racing setup not meant for the streets so comfort is a little bit compromised but it makes up for it when the pavement gets ripped up before the car loses grip, i can also get it sideways easier and before it even starts to understeer...

If I put my front Konis on the hardest setting it really feels like a cart at the front its low and hard but need to get the backs changed to konis too. As soon as I get that done Im sure Id be able to keep up with you in cornering.

Was curious to swap my GTV for your 156 Mig as Ive never driven a 156. But then thought Nah prefer my GTV

When do you get your car back?
