When i was in the NZ Army i did a couple exercises in townsville and cooked my arse off,was so humid but a nice town,however the most strictest bars and pubs ive ever been in, they would kick you out, if you looked even slightly pissed,this was 97 and98 though

You should get used to the heat befor your time is up then. Lol. What part of the army you work in. And i find the clubs are now the opposit. Seams like they will let any one in.

I was posted up there for over 6 years, will be coming back in 2012. The V8 scene wasnt too big when I left. Are there many performance joints / tuners up there now? Who are people going too?

10-04-2011, 09:53 PM
There are a few places that are getting right into the ls series of the v8s. Places like kennys garage or tms are good places to go

11-04-2011, 11:04 PM
there are about 4 places up there that have dynos and do tuning as said before kennys, its now called KTMS from what ive been told same bloke different name, there is bob hawkins and a couple in aitkenvale, personally id see mick at KTMS he has a great rep and when i had my red clubby i wouldnt let anyone touch it
contact the ls1 club they will help

Thanks for that, will do

26-04-2011, 08:41 PM
Hey guys, after 60 hours of driving I got up here, but my dif is making a speed dependant whirring noise and my clutch fluid needs to be replaced, will the performance shops do this type of work? Where is the best place to go?

26-04-2011, 09:01 PM
Hey man good to see you got up here ok. The performance shop should be able to check over the few issues. As stated previously go to either tms or kennys garage. I personally got to kennys but tms are also quite good
