I haven't experienced RACV's pre-inspection checks myself, but if they offer any kind of warranty you should expect them to be much stricter in diagnosing issues. Also, the only difficult gasket to replace would be the cover seal.

How's petrol and insurance on it?

Strictly a worked up dd for my stay in Brisbane
>>
>>14231919
I've got an FG xr6t.
>petrol
I get about 650km to the tank mostly highway driving. But I've had as low as 400km when I boot it around town. Tank is about 75L.

>insurance
25 full comp and I'm paying $1080/year

They're thirsty but it's a turbo i6 what do you expect.
>>
>>14231919
look, xr6t won't give you much trouble unless you buy one with upped boost or stockies on the back
insurance is higher than average but not unreasonable
>>
well off to the mechanic goes the shitbox hope it will be done by friday arvo. fuck even if it's not ill still try and take it to the meet anyway.
>>
Generally how relaxed are roadworthy testers when it comes to a loud exhaust?
I really can't be bothered switching back to the stock one just to swap back straight after.
>>
>>14232996
They will bone you for it.
>>
>>14233021
Even local mechanics?
>>
>>14233050
yup. if it's over the limit, you'll get pinged. i had an exhaust shop put a cheap quiet muffler on the subaru just to pass roadworthy, two bolts to change it back after
>>

you in melbourne? trufit exhaust down near moorabbin is where i got my shit done, they're good blokes, reasonable pricing too
>>
>>14233084
If it's similar to here, they don't give a shit
Never had problems with any of mine, friends don't have issues either
One of my mates had a blueslip done on his WRX with the total drainpipe exhaust (sounded mint tho) and the mechanic told him that it was fitted tomorrow

Go to a local mechanic, chat with him, you'll be right

Yeah the guys at the place I go to are pretty chill, but I've just never had a roadworthy done and they seem like a pain in the ass
>>
>>14233109
>>14233122
if you're bros with your local it's worth asking, i'd just take the car down and ask "hey guys would this exhaust pass a RWC"

down here we're a lot more strict on exhaust volume BLDC cause vicroads have started requiring photos of the entire underside of the car + decibel meter n shit as part of an RWC, it's dumb as heck
>>
>>14233137
Yeah no harm in asking I guess, I've just fucked the alarm and the car won't start so doesn't look like I'll be getting it down there soon anyway lol

call the RACV, they can take care of that (assuming you're a member).
>>
>>14234053
Will they do it if I join now?

>>14234088
maybe, i'm not sure. you really should be a member anyway since it doesnt cost much and you get a free tow to an auto elec if they cant fix it on the spot.

>>14232996
I've been checked once. They got me to hold my old MC22 at 4,000rpm and cleared it. Complied and didn't make any smart ass comments about how high is revved.

Old car had a fairly loud setup too, never got questioned.

Victoria might be really full on about it though.

>>14233062
This. If it's something you have to do swap it with something cheap that'll clear.

>>14234039
Wire up a bypass once you fix it. My old car had an override in the back seat ash tray. Used a pronged key looking thing. Saved me a couple times.

Greetings fellow Ausfags. I tend to lurk /dbt/ more than post here but feel I should make a slight PSA to any Melbournian bike owners. My SV was stolen from out the front of my house last night and after making a police report the officer told me my chances of seeing it again are slim. Apparently one of the big bikie gangs has been disappearing around 30 bikes a week for the past few months to be sold as parts and interstate. So as a word of warning double check your bikes all nicely locked up so you don't get a nasty surprise when you walk out the door in the morning like I did.
>>
>>14235952
jesus christ reading this makes me sick

fucking bikefags keep stealing shit around mid north coast nsw as well its fucking shit

at least noone steals cars out my way YET
>>
Pulled my handbrake while driving and it beeped at me, is that just a warning beep to tell your handbrake is on?
>>
>>14235971
It's a warning that your car is weak shit and can't handle some skidding

>>14235971
most likely

>used to work at a car rental place

Yeah im happy it beats most newer cars and deffers the old v8 i6 au turds lol
>>
>>14230637
Nah the zf is a good box, just make sure you get it upgraded before you start making big power though. Also if you get one, get the trans fluid replaced straight away, but just get transmax not the oem fluid which costs way to much

Also own one FG though

Blame those pieces of shit on a current affair. Literally the worst thing in this country, causes our retarded general population to get all fired up over fucking nothing constantly.

>>14236635
actually funny you meantion gumtree it was the 2nd car i found on there.

why? so you can drive around reving it to 7k instead of 6k until it blows up?

I feel you, its completely different for cars, bikes don't give as much feeling when giving all the throttle, it feels more like it just becomes lighter underneath you.

I paid $18,000 for it and no I won't modify it to look like mad max's interceptor. I think it's the sexiest muscle car ford ever produced and I think stock restoration with a contemporary twist would be the best choice by far. Bigger brakes lower the stance a bit beef up the suspension etc but for now no supercharger. Paint will be original to vin number. The falcon in my original post is sadly not mine but it is the direction I'm going with it . Hopefully it won't take more than a year to get it done right.
>>
>>14236827
even if your a boomer i completely agree sir.
as for leaving the engine stock its up to you but i would put a cam in it as well as holley efi or bigger runners and carbies
its what mad max would want rip alan rickman

R6 are pretty ridiculous once you wind them up. Little docile down low though. Try a 1000 sometime, it'll scare the crap out of you.

>>14241571
The liter is actually easier due to not being as peaky as a 600.

But still none the less a diamond making experience for the new.
>>
Any vintage oldfags like aussiemuscle or someone have any idea about this? >>14241568

The roads by Victor Harbor is a death trap aren't they? You SA guys are going to die when the inevitable speeding and shit starts
>>
>>14241610
Work through it from solenoid onwards.
Check the coil, should be resistance values in a workshop manual for it
Check dizzy that the rotor contacts the button and the terminals
Check leads and plugs
>>
>>14241352
>9 seconds
Haha, I imagine it would feel retardedly fast. Hell I still remember the day I picked my CBR250RR up. I hadn't ridden anything since I got my license (about eighteen months earlier) and was driving a '96 Hyundai Lantra I got for free. It felt like I was flying it was so fast.

>>14241571
Honestly if anything litres are easier to ride. The power is absolutely insane but there's a huge amount down low too. You can put around below 5,000rpm all day and it feels completely tame.

My R1 is really easy to ride around town.

>>14241606
I wouldn't call a 600 peaky, but more or less. I've compared an R6 to a car with a big turbo before.

>>14241616
>The roads by Victor Harbor is a death trap aren't they?
Not even slightly? The surface only really starts to decline once you pass Inman Valley (heading West). I doubt I'll be going though, migraines haven't subsided yet and it's a long way to go if one person rocks up like the last time I went.
>>
>>14241676
Really? I always hear about it for interstate road deaths. Might be thinking of a different road
>>
>>14241655
Will see if the dizzy is at fault tomorrow its pissing down outside atm

Would love to just drop a better motor in it.

Have a LSD diff out of a jeep that would be fun to put in lol
>>
>>14241589
aye, honestly I'm nervous but just from lack of experience with them
so many idiotic cunts
>>
>>14241742
They're easy once you know them. Try driving around in Wagga Wagga with the Wiradjuri boys asking for a dolla for tha bus m8, you can't avoid them. Just about every roundabout there is a dual lane.
>>
>>14241719
>I always hear about it for interstate road deaths
You wouldn't be heading towards Victor if you were going interstate.
>>
>>14241676
>doubt I'll be going though, migraines haven't subsided yet and it's a long way to go if one person rocks up like the last time I went.
It seems there is a bit of interest in it. At least 4 anons posted last thread. Probably will be bringing my babyblade down depending if I'm awake or not, 1pm is a bit early for me
>>
>>14241807
It's an hours trip to get there from where I live at the moment is all and I've got things to do in the afternoon and that night. See how I feel in the morning, but I wouldn't be holding my breath.

If there's a good interest shown tonight I might change my mind but eh, if I wake up with another migraine it's definitely not happening.

What's that?

I might go, I have some other plans that I'll probably end up skipping. At the very least I'll show up to the meet and decide if I'll go for the cruise.

>>14236451
>>14236439
Yeah my 250 does 0-100 in 6.0, probably faster if I was a better rider

Is Saturdays S.A. meet still a thing or another failure?
The BMW is gud to go.
>>
>>14242138
Me and my mate are going for sure, so that's at least two that will be there.
>>
>>14242111
not him but a babyblade is any smaller CBR model if I'm not mistaken, portmanteau of baby fireblade
>>
>>14242111
Babyblades are CBR250RR MC22s, 91-96 model.

>>14242120
What is it?

>>14242138
>>14242143
If I don't have a migraine and it looks like there's decent interest I'll see if I can make it.
>>
>>14242153
1998 Suzi GSX250, i4 just like the 250RR.
>>
>>14242197
Oh a GSX250F, the helmet storage thing on them is cool, only real problem is they're kind of heavy. About 20kg more than an MC22 if I recall correctly. They have a bit more torque though don't they?

You could probably get it into the mid to low 5s if you got aggressive (and brave) with your shifts.
>>
>>14241741
My money is on coil, they fail often (compared to other things) in my experience
Also check the points inside the dizzy
>>
>>14242228
The helmet thing is neat, but yeah the bike weighs about 180 wet without a rider, easily 260 while I'm on it. I haven't managed to beat 6.0 yet but yeah I probably could if I took it more aggressively. How about your 250rr?
>>
>>14242252
>How about your 250RR?
I haven't gotten around to fixing it yet, should be done by June though. Best I did was just under 5 seconds. That was with some full retard shifting though. I was preloading for a clutchless shift then hitting the limiter. Could keep the throttle pinned that way.

It runs at the moment, but it's got a ways to go before I'll put it back on the road though.

What's a cheap 4x4 I can get for camping? Like a cheaper Land Cruiser or something. All of them have ridiculous mileage.
