Well at least the HR was much better than the HD.
My dad told me the HD stood for "Horrible Design" and HR was for "Hurriedly Righted" (he had a HR), but my first car was an EH and I still gotta love an EH when I see one  ;D

HR is my favourite car and was my first

I had a HR x2, those twin Strombergs were a pain in the arse to tune together.
Time I finished it had triple su carbs and a 7/8th Bathurst race cam, basically a hot xu1 motor,  lots of heel toe to keep it idling at traffic lights and had the most amazing exhaust bark I have ever heard, still the fastest car I have ever driven.

It had a set of tramp rods as well.  One day going a bit fast with a few people in the back around a steep corner one decided to dig it the road, the most violent moment in a car I have had, in a split second we were facing the other way going WTF just happened.

Another time cruising along my rear wheel with the axel still attached decided to over take me,  pulled off all the brakes hoses which causes me to have no brakes, I was lucky to have the tramp rods that day for it to grind away on the road.

It ended up towing caravans in smash up derbys :(

Its one car I really miss and plan to buy another one day

Iam all about having fun while improving my skills in sim racing

looking forward to getting to know you guys and having a good time

Cheers, Monsta

Hi, I'm GT VIRUS, long time racer at ARSE, Missing AC so coming over here!

I'm a professional track developer, and I was the one who did the The Bend motorsports park and Newcastle for AC. I'm happy to help out with any track issues that the league might have.

Hey mate, I am Hylas. I've changed my name in here just to be confusing. Will be good to go racing with you again :)
I haven't raced with arse for some time now, never purchased pcars2 and that's pretty much the only sim they seem to play these days.

You've joined at a good time, new season will be starting soon. Don't forget to vote for your preferred car on the upcoming season too!

USURPER!  :o

Just kidding, it'll be grand to have someone on board who actually knows what they are doing rather than poor old me and my worn out ctrl-c\pv keys.  ;) :D ;D

Edit:My greatest fear realised. Got done for a spelling error. :'(
