Thinking of buying a action camera tomorrow and going to Wednesdays drags to get some decent video and making a proper video. With a few passes at the strip with the camera in different positions on different runs.

Looking at the fuel gauge the 6.9 needs a drop of juice Geoff.

Not a fan of running these old Benz's low on fuel.

Look forward to the next video Geoff.

'Plenty of fuel', well then 6.9's must run well on low fuel?

Yep still fitted. Just bought action camera so I can film next time I go to the drags. Then I will wait till I fit 560 throttle body before going back Helmet. And Tim 98 is the only fuel I put in Memnoch. It was $1.45.3 today. It was just over $104 ok. But I don't really look as doing so is pointless in a 6.9 . You know its going to hurt so I just look for cheapest when I need to fill. As I said Fuelwatch is something I will miss when I leave W.A.

Fuel consumption is not an issue. He only takes it out ten kilometres (NOT miles !) a year. Regards Styria

N.B. Also, I reckon that a minimum of 2800 and 3300rpm should have been used when the brakes were released - that would have improved the time down to about 6.9 seconds. Also the sound was pretty spiffy - not unlike Gleaming Beauty. I still think that GB would show Memnoch a clean pair of heels - by at least 0.1 of a second to 100km/hour. That GB of mine - a real rush express these days ! Okay, back to dancing with the stars. Up Ricki Lee and Melanie Hooper - gorgeous women, spanking personalities. I even like Carmelo.
