Police and Channel 7 busted some drag thing in an industrial suburb. over 100 cars involved.

Just got the jist and of whats going on but very large operation mounted on the event.

BIG POINT. didn't see one not one Japanese Import car in the piece doing any burn outs, donuts, not even on the sidelines. 90% of the cars were holdens, saw some Fords and only 1 Rx3 that was very highlighted cause he got arrested for endangering lives when his donuts came too close to spectators.

D**kHead comment of the night with a foooly sik attitude, "Yeah i know this is all dangerous but i'm young man, live hard die hard"

Comments on how bad this makes every performance car club look.

Didn't see the previous motorbike thing that was mentioned in the forums.

thats true about how bad an image like this makes us ALL look bad.

Even if they were holdens and fords, it makes the rest of us look bad simply cos we're young and stereotypically we are all made to act the same.

Bah, holdens and fords... theyre mostly auto*... how much fun can u have in an auto*? :cheers:

*conditions apply

I really wish people on this forum would stop bagging out the opposition constantly! Let's not get into another Aussie/Jap debate (yet again)

And shuddup, doin some skids is cool!

If cops r going t crack down on us (aust/jap car nuts) then where r we going to do it, ok so they the street drags at the motorplex on wenesday night, but what the guys/girls who like to drift and race around? Seeing that u get busted for useing light industil areas. ;)

Yup it was WA cause they said that the WA police force was undertaking this "sting" and if i'm not wrong, WA cops only have juridiction in WA.

My problem with it is the picture that it painted that ANY young person with a performance car partakes in "hoon" activity.

what they were doing was stupid and dangerous, like the nuts right next to people, but im sure most people with performance cars have more brains than that.

i dont think its fair we all have that image on our heads. most of us do take more care, even when we are stupid :headspin:

Did this story end with a bust where the Guy swapped seats with his (big) girlfriend to try and avoid getting busted?

If so it was on TV here about a month ago (smirks to himself and thinks the rumors about sand-gropers may be correct)

If so check some of the comments made in other state forums.

There was about 3 guys that swapped spots with their (rather large) gfs that looked hell out of place in the seat.

But the RX3 that busted had this large white PROFOMAZ (can't spell) sticker on the back windshield, looks hell familiar around here pretty sure i've seen it here in perth.

For racing i would check PPCC forums and see if you get any ideas there and for drift i would check cars more suited to drift

i hope you aint a snitch trying to help in the next bust....

Indeed they did. No mention that it was VIC. Durty mofo's trying to stirr shit as if it was local.

It was the vic lic plates on the cars and the EPA test that gave it away though.

Oh and an edit ... :cheers:

Giving that dude that charge of attempting to cause bodily harm is ridiculous. 5 years jail for a burnout WTF !!!

Damn i am giving up burnouts and going to go steal from peoples house's from now on, much lighter penalties ....... as long as i dont use a car to do it.

the media will always show this sort of thing in the worst light and generalise as much as possible ya know make it sound bad enuf an people will watch an then you can do a follow up an a follow up on the follow up and people will tune in to see it s@#$ happens

Damn passing it off as if it was there own gotta be some ethical media law against that because isn't our 6.30pm current affairs programs supposed to deal with our local issues?

Hey how about we go to Current Affair and complain about the story on there and how defaming and biased it is against us. That should go down real well.

    • Sounds like all you want is a button on your CAN dash pad that is for 2-step / anti lag launch.  Hold the button down, rev limit gets set to whatever you want, say 5000 rpm. Then mass timing is pulled and a heap of fuel is dumped in for fun times. Want more bangs and flames, pull more timing or add more fuel or both lol.  Obviously the more you use the fun button, the shorter the life of the entire hot side of your motor. So valves, turbo, cat, any sensors in the exhaust, etc etc. Well, if you are using it for its intended purpose it is very rewarding. If you are at the drags and want to launch on full boost, how else are you going to do that?
    • Engines are expensive. You already mentioned having thermal management issues with your car, anti-lag dramatically raises EGTs and can easily damage a cylinder head. If your goal is actually to improve transient response I recommend VCAM. DBW can also help here. Instead of a simple mapping of accelerator pedal position to throttle opening instead you interpret the accelerator pedal as a certain torque/power request and the throttle will open more or less to achieve that. So if your desired acceleration requires getting 0.5 bar of boost the throttle will silently go wide open to spool the turbos, then as it gets to that target intake manifold pressure it will adjust the throttle back to the steady state target. Another trick you can play is detecting when a shift is happening using a strain gauge and clutch switch for example and rather than snap the throttle shut when the accelerator pedal closes you cut fuel injection and hang the throttle open to keep the turbo from slowing down. This is a pretty complicated trick to play though as if it got stuck in that logic you would have engine runaway and you want to make sure the engine RPMs actually fall at a reasonable rate instead of rev hanging badly.
    • What sort of power difference do you think you'll see between the two engines? Is it just the extra RPM from the wide journal that you're chasing?
    • I did have a chat about boost when I was picking up the car, Mania recommended a little turbo over a supercharger for a 4 pot as the parasitic loss from spinning it up is substantial  Pricing was $13k drive in drive out for the 2.0 turbo package which can net around 180 killerwasps and alot more tourqes, or, add on top of that $13k, another $7k for a 2.5 swap with the turbo drive in drive out for a little more hsprs up top, but a big chunk more torque everywhere else  But no, I'm more than happy rolling around in the little 2.0 NA for a daily, all of the handling goodness, but none of the FI issues associated with putting FI on a stock NA engine and driveline If I wanted a "faster daily" I would have picked a different car The Bogan Cruise Ship is my car with boosted powers I feel I now have the best of both worlds, a fun and reliable little daily that I enjoy throwing/thrashing around town, and a big fat cruiser that has more power for the streets and Hwys than what I can actually use and still keep my licence Jackie has also decided that whilst she did enjoy driving the MX5, any shopping expeditions we do will be in her ASX, or the Commodore for long cruises or trips away, Jackie is much taller than me and isn't keen on folding herself into, or out of the MX5, she has hit her head on the top nearly every time she has got in it with the roof up, she calls it the stupid little matchbox car, LOL, perfect........
