Smoke so thick over here, visibility is down to hundreds of metres. Very hard to breathe, a blanket of ash [not burning embers] falling everywhere.

I was told that the fire had burnt out 2500ha up until yesterday, it had burnt out 5000ha by early this morning. Rugged country, pine and natural timber, very gusty winds, I don't think they will be able to contain it.

So far no lives or houses lost ifaik. We are not under threat, it is supposed to be going away from us. But it looks grim, and the way the bush is - being so dry and all - I reckon it might be anywhere by tomorrow or the day after, even in Canberra.

Yes, the alpine region of Vic fires are huge, I don't envy any of the poor bastards that live or are fighting them there. We had smoke from those fires a couple of days before we had our own fire and ...........wait for it............started by a camp fire!!!! What moron would light a camp fire when the year is like this!!!!

PS our fire is nowhere near as big as the Vic one/s. But it is a lot closer and growing with every tick of the clock.

Yeh just got back from Bendigo on sunday night and it was well and truly smoked in for the last 3 days. Seriously scary situation down there with 12 decent fires all threateningly close together. If they link (which they could) imagine a 100km fire front... :ninja: not cool.

Even old Wagga got some smoke last week from the vic fires, I can't imagine what it must be like further south.

So, fellow SAU'ers - be fire safe this summer. Don't throw your butts out the window, light fires or drive on grass after burnouts. :ninja:

Just had a fire straight out the front of my unit. We live near the river with some bushland - and there was a rappidly growing grassfire. Luckily it didn't get far before the fire peeps put it out. Probably kids that lit it.

But it shows how careful people ned to be.

    • Your stuff look much better than the original stuff I used on my tri-y headers, which didn't survive the swap, that did work OK though, but currently the headers are only ceramic coating, which, while it is meant to be the bees knees, it really only reduces temps by "not alot" and is more for protecting the mild steel pipes The new stuff is meant to maintain an "air gap" which "apparently" helps the insulation LOL In other news I'm taking it into Autotech next week for them to have a look at the RaceTCS, the spot where I want it, and the program "thingie" that is on my lap top computa which you would know as it is basically the same thing as your Racelogic  I'm really keen to get this fitted  
    • OK, a couple of questions arise. Are you suggesting that you want to swap to the S2 ECU so that you can Nistune it? Because....none of the R33 ECUs can be Nistuned. What would an ATESSA controller do to help? You have no ATESSA. Beyond that, the S1 and S2 ECU pinouts are nearly identical, as far as I can remember. A quick look around on SAU yields the following for S1. As I said, almost all of it is identical. I think there might be a few changes around the AFM and the ECCS relay, not much else. There's not functionally anything particularly different between a manual and auto ECU pinout. Can run a manual engine on an auto ECU quite trivially, for example.
