yes that is the same BA super car.

and HSV's new car is road designed, able to beat a race design, very funny.


Also, ford has gone from too much rear grip, to too much front grip.

lol, what fucken idiots.

Well the rules are changed all the time, if one wins too much they change the other its always been the same altho call me biased but holden had a huge winning streak and nothing was done, usually if ford go good for a while something is changed


And correct me if im wrong but do holden still use our diff?

No they dont and in fact have been using Hollinger diffs for around 5 years now, the last 9" "ford" diff was used on the vs and early vt supercars.

Squizz, a bit of advice.


Dont buy the clubby if u dont even drive the VS much.
They r very exspensive to buy, then to keep insured and the lot.

not worth it if it is going to be garaged most of its life.

just my 0.02$ on that.


and the melb race, ford only won by point score.
Bright got 1st in 1st race, 3rd in 2nd,

Only reason ford got in front was because of reverse grid

Ill let you in on a little secret V-one s..........Ive been in the Auto game for about 17 years, and Ive learned a bit
You get to my age and you start to want to enjoy the fruits of the years you've been working hard and you set yourself personal goals (one of mine happens to be a Clubby!)
My VS has 45000 k's on the clock and is better than new (youll agree when you see the photos!)
Sometimes the price of something is irrelevant and on 60% no claim in a very low-crime area the insurance is only around $1100 per year on a $30000 car

ahh 60% no claim, plus low crime = good. very good.
45000kms on a VS, not bad
i can believe the condition, sounds like u look after it.
unfortunately u wont get a good return at the moment if u sell it.


but if u get a clubby, get a new good one,
and i wanna go for a joy ride, lol


just have fun and dont reck it, lol


oh yeah, my dads VS has around 170000KM's on it, still going stronger den eva.

Any way, night boys, time to get off for me.,
