    QLD Mt Glorious Cruze

    Is anyone interested in going for a slow (no...really:-) cruze up to Mt Nebo and Glorious?

    The way i usually go up is through the Gap, then Nebo, Glorious, then down the back side past all the lakes and past Ipswich. That way rocks for high speed hills.

    Phasis,

    I would be in on that, but I may have to control myself this time as the last time I came down the back way to Samford from the mountain, I had a little, err, "moment"

    Have you a date in mind?

    How would next Sunday be for everyone?
    That would be the 29th.

    I have only been the Gap way. Which way is better?

    would suggest we all me somewhere on the northside, I live southside, so someone else can organise a place.

    Spread the word too, we need heaps of ppl.

    29th is cool for me, and if we go up the gap way, we come down the samford turn off, its a great piece of road (when its not damp) and is full of twisties and hairpins.

    We could meet up at the first car park on the Mt Glorious road if thats ok with everyone, and its easy to find.

    Just a nice easy run is what I am after, no bravery awards (like last time) need be entertained

    So, is it just the 3 of us?

    Chip

    p.s. Phasis, did you do the dyno run with the 306? Howd you go?

    How bout saturday?
    Dyno was good...got the following

    RPM HP (engine)
    2000 41
    3000 69
    4000 105
    5000 132
    6000 155
    7000 164

    Was real happy with that. Was expecting around 155. Had Optimax in it though, I dont usually run it on that, but had it in for about a week for the ECU to get used to it, even if thats not how it works...was a good excuss to spoil myself. I put PULP back in and it felt quite a bit lifeless. Think i will stick with Optimax from now on though.

    Man haven't been on this thing in ages!

    well henry, brad and chipper I have yet to meet. I have to say no due to the fact the little pug hasn't arrived yet. It was going to get here on sat but the guy pushed it forward another week. So I may have to be a passenger. However i think I will be able to get some guys interested.

    Give me exact times, dates and meeting place.

    Peugeot, that you Nick?
    You have met me fool At the grand display.
    How does the 11th or 12th of August sound for everyone?
    That will give you a few more weeks to get your ride soughted Nick.
    Time and place, still to be confirmed, but mid morning suits me fine. Cool air, hopefully not too many tourists on the roads. They shit me to tears. Last time I went up, one prick was doing 30km/hr throught he busy mid section near Nebo, almost killed myself (kinda) rounding him up.
    So we got Me, JR, Chipper, Nick, and Nicks friends, how many?

    Well, we could meet up on the road to Mt Glorious just past the Ampol servo at the Gap, or up the road a bit further, there is a car park just as the fun part of the road starts??????

    Reno. Gee, um.....SURE!!!
    So does Saturday 11th August sound good for everyone?
    Mid morning, say 10am, meet at the carpark Chipper is talking about.
    Is that on the left or right hand side of the road? Give us another street to locate it.

    Now just to make it clear, no heroism. We all know we are quicker than ANY Excel or Lancer.

    11th is fine by me, but i will go with the flow.

    The car park is on the left side of the road basically where Waterworks Road ends and the Mt Glorious Rd starts. Brisbane Forest Park HQ and Info is on the left side of the road as you travel towards Mt Glorious/Nebo and that is the carpark.


    Go here for a map :


    www.whereis.com.au

    Put in Waterworks Road, The Gap.


    Failing that, when you go out on Waterworks road through The Gap and you come to the intersection of Waterworks and Settlement Roads (Ampol servo on the corner ???, could be Mobil), you are not far from the car park. About a k or so, on the left is the carpark (first one on the Mt Glor Rd)

    Hows that for everyone?

    Chip

    Edit cause the map din work
