Cradle Coast Rally was a short one day rally held on the last weekend in February 2012. Some classic stages including Savage River and Hellyer Gorge which is also a stage in Targa Tasmania. The run was not 100% smooth for us with fuel issues due to the heat and a dropped lifter for the biggest stage of the event, but we have FINALLY put some better rubber on the wheels and upgraded the brakes from the factory ones we had run at every event till now. Loved the new Yokohama Advan Neova tyres and many thanks to Yokohama and Legana Tyres and More for those. Again many thanks to Craig "Wheelie" Milich for being there when we needed him and creating a car for us that never under-steered, unlike the made up silver Merc with a huge Chev engine as shown here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2YiCkoMNB-s&feature=g-all-u&context=G257800cFAAAAAAAAAAA This is a good example of a car that does not handle well. I have turned down driving lessons offered to me by this driver, this footage and comparative times I think make it clear why.

Took 2-3 laps for my tyres to come in
Had a mega race until oil down on almost every different line for every corner from about 12min on over, virtually impossible to drive, so sloooow through luffield
Finshed 2nd well happy considering how much faster the skylines were
Best time a supersonic 58.9 but still not fast enough
Dream come true to have the 2 big Auzzy V8's door handle to door handle
Targa Tas 2011 Mt Roland, pass a Ferrari
Best stage of the event for us. We are caught and passed by a TR7 V8 and then hang on his arse to the finish, and we both pass a Ferrari. Not a bad effort keeping up with the TR7 when we have road tyres, standard brakes, and the fact that an XE Falcon isn't as aerodynamic as a TR7, let alone a Ferrari! Gets a bit damp and greasy towards the end. I think the driver enjoyed himself, Navigator did too! Thanks Craig and Neil in the TR7
HO Phase 6 - XE Ford Falcon
This is the original Phase 6 that Wayne Draper built for the street in 1982 (for the Dick Johnson street car prototype).
The original engine in 82' for Johnson was a a turbo charged 6 cylinder cross flow. In 88', a 351 Cleveland with carburetor was put in (and is still in today). It's been perfectly tuned by our Phase Autos toy shop. Enjoy!
