Posted by: QIK-TX5 on December 6, 2004 [ Car Profile ]

yeah tx3 & tx5 sounds good. where's some good areas for cruzin in the melb area. im from geelong so i really only know melb city & a couple of the s.e suburbs, but if you melb guyz have got sum suggestions. i'd be interested in before xmas as im pretty sure im workin 6days a week over summer, but its open for debate. hope im not the only one who rocks up with a n/a tx5 blush.gif

Posted by: zorb_rules on December 6, 2004 [ Car Profile ]

*lol* QIK thats cause ya dont have real car smile.gif naa just kidding yeah i'd be up for before christmas...on a sunday or something its the best day were probably all liekly to be free then too...i'd say we go city or somethin..but i gots no idea

Posted by: jesiotrot on December 7, 2004 [ Car Profile ]

i agree, i think the best day would be a sunday. and how about a cruise through the city and then onto some winding roads with plenty of sharp corners and hills smile.gif

Posted by: zorb_rules on December 8, 2004 [ Car Profile ]

smile.gif man I like that idea...maybe go like through the city then up the dandedongs way somewhere nice fun roads....and some good backdrop scenary for some sweet pics of all our when everyone free.

Posted by: MR.TRBO on December 8, 2004 [ Car Profile ]

hey can u tell me da size of ur cooler and da size of pipes , ive got a front mount in my tx5 but i want to upgrade to a better cooler but i have limit space cause the themo fan is rite infront with da receiver , doesn;t leave much room, i was told can use these rubber spacers or sumthing , any1 got any suggestions ? thanx ya car looks nice as man.

Posted by: QIK-TX5 on December 13, 2004 [ Car Profile ]

city then dandenong's sounds like a really good idea. give us a chance for some slower, more cruisy drivin in the city, and then we can open them up on the open roads in the dandenongs. well im not sure about everyone else, but if it's a sunday then im free every sunday. but there's only one sunday left between now and christmas, which doesnt really give us much time to organise, so it's probably better if we set it for maybe the 2nd, 9th, or 16th Jan, but that's just a suggestion.

Posted by: zorb_rules on December 14, 2004 [ Car Profile ]

yeah i liek ya thinkin quick probably the 9th sounds the best I dont know bout the rest of you but ill still be hungover on the 2nd smile.gif

Posted by: SABBAi on December 16, 2004 [ Car Profile ]

I'm up for a bit of a run as well. We could always do the Black spur..... Now that is a fun road!!!

Posted by: zorb_rules on December 16, 2004 [ Car Profile ]

yeah smile.gif it it quite fun I love it going there next week ill give it a work out for you's

Posted by: zorb_rules on December 20, 2004 [ Car Profile ]

HEy dont know if all you tx5 and mx6 boys are up for it but by the looks of it the dudes from are gonna hold a melb cruise on the 15th JAn....for more info have a look here it shopuld eb a chnace for us all the catch up..

Posted by: jesiotrot on December 21, 2004 [ Car Profile ]

thanks for the info zorb. so do we still wanna organise a tx5 cruise??? or just tag along with the mx6 guys? i'd prefer to have a tx5 cruise as well...

Posted by: zorb_rules on December 22, 2004 [ Car Profile ]

Yeah I reckon we shoudl organise the tx5 cruise aswell...but I thoguht we could rock up to that one first see what the turn outs liek have a talk and whatever and figure out a good date for all us to go...

Posted by: QIK-TX5 on January 4, 2005 [ Car Profile ]

sorry you havent heard from me in a lil while, i got a full time job over summer and 2day is my first day off in 13 days *yawn* yeah i agree wit zorb, jus tag along wit the mx6 guys and then organise an all tx cruise

Posted by: SABBAi on January 6, 2005 [ Car Profile ]

The MX6 cruises are pretty good, and well organised!!

EVLTX5 and myself went to the last one, twas good.
It probably would be better if we all tagged along on the MX6 cruise, cause then we'd know each other and the like. Easier to organise a TX cruise after I'd say.
