    Seeing as it looks like you already have a Mazda in the group, and I'm pretty much a life-time member of Aussiefrogs, I'll come along aswell, if not only to see how well I do against Euro's, not that we'll be driving hard...

    I don't think my fiance would like it if I took off for a drive on the same day as she flies out to the states for a month but definitely will be up for the next one. Keep us posted.

    Default Cousre Change

    Hey guys, well i went for a drive to lake wivenhoe and decided to revise the route as some people have said to me that there are no twisty roads and just boring highways... so this is the new plan. (times and dates are basically the same).

    Gold Coast people meet Yatala BP 10:30, Leave 11:00am

    Brisbane people meet Mt Coot-Tha Road.... There is a small carpark across from the botanical gardens/planetarium. Meet at 11:00, Leave 11:30am when gold coast crew arrive.

    We will drive to "The Gap" via Waterworks road which will then turn into Mt Nebo Road... We'll drive through the twists of Mt Nebo whicch leads onto Mt Glorious for more twisty roads. Then its off to Lake Wivenhoe about 10min drive from the bottom of Mt Glorious.


    Things to bring: FULL TANK OF FUEL, UHF radio (if you have one) we will be on channel 22. And some money for lunch and tolls for those who chose to come back the Ipswich/Logan Mwy

    Hope yaz like the changes!

    Ps. Real great roads up the mountains (i went for a drive there today). The roads are all real smooth with no potholes. prob best mountain roads ive seen in a while...

    Thanx Guys

    You don't want to do this drive on a Sunday (unless it is really, really, really early in the morning because I can guarantee you will get stuck behind a slow moving 'Sunday Driver'. This is why the last couple of Brisbane AF drives have been held on Saturdays - less traffic.

    I'm in.

    My car makes a default ticking noise now, so don't be alarmed. Stupid weak manifold!!

    Suspension has been revamped and tightenend up though, and i haven't had a go at some proper roads with it yet. Should be fun.
