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.
I've got an FG xr6t.
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.
25 full comp and I'm paying $1080/year
They're thirsty but it's a turbo i6 what do you expect.
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
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
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.
This. If it's something you have to do swap it with something cheap that'll clear.
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.
I'm at 110% rage /dat/

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.
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
This, I went to visit friends in a town that had one cop car, managed to run into him in the middle of nowhere at 2am while trying out shift points
Flew out of there when I saw his lights and ended up parking on a random farm and sleeping there since no phone reception
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.
Just buy a Forester XT. Bigger turbo and some decent coilovers and it's the same thing anyway, with the benefit of you being able to throw shit in the back when you need to.
I wish I could say yes but lost my licence 4 years ago. Cheapest quote for even third party I could get was $600 a year. For that price I could have pretty much bought the bike again by now.
If you're here for longer and don't mind utes.
P-plate laws are retarded in each state. Up in QLD you could do an NSX, S2K or Lotus Elise 111 on your P's but an RX-8 or 200SX would be out of the question.
>chip a bone in my elbow playing hockey
>put on bike jacket, elbow padding cuts into elbow, have to endure a bit of pain whenever I ride

>finally elbow is feeling better
>go and fuck up my elbow again
Jimmy can suck on this too lets see his 1.7tonne barge aumr2opel do this cunt
Wtf bike are we talking? A ninja or just some other cheap thingo?
nah dead stop i wound it up to about 2k then let off the brakes
Shit forgot but i hit the timer maybe a split second late i need a app that times out after 100km/h need a cheap 0-100 timer when i get a cam and heads
im keeping a eye on the oil still bright light red so no problems there it shifts strong.
next mod will be triple core radiator and bonnet scoop because it gets HOT under there and i never did that for the falcon so i think that helped kill it
so? power:weight almost beats raw power in a heavier vehicle every time unless we look at distance covered and top speed
American here. I've always appreciated the Australian muscle cars. I recently purchased a Ford Falcon xb and I'm currently working out the shipping details. I can't fucking wait. I promise to lovingly restore it and make you Aussfags proud. The end result will be similar to >pic related
nah therer was thesee pom guys building a mini and they came up with some sort of press i need to find the vid
Project binky but i forget which one
at least your not doing a mad max restomod
so yeah please dont do that mate haha.
But please put a supercharger on it
lol you got dunnydoored
she probably had a late model with a cam at the least its a cheap mod if the engine is up to it.
>mfw before i touch my engine it needs $1000+ inc labor to fix all the leaks
hay i didnt say i liked the movie i liked the cars though.
calm your autismocharger turbospazza
nah i just rev it to 6000 every day.
mechanic was suprised it puts up with it so well.
going to back off once the ticking starts and wait for a bottom end + heads then going for mid street cam looking at 300rwkw+ and hopefully higher rev limit
actually funny you meantion gumtree it was the 2nd car i found on there.
owner was awesome and kept the thing in mint condition, anything 15 years old and 200000 k's on it is going to have 2 tiny leaks
well i did see a ls3 with 7300 redline on the dyno sheets in there but idk what a ls1 would put up with
yeah i never go over 2k until its WARM like running for at least 30 min
thoughts? pretty cheap if the ad isn't lying, gonna guess theres a bunch of shit wrong with it though
This is my excuse for hooning
I'd love to be able to do that, there's an 80 zone right outside of my house so I need to take my bike to 7,500 just to do the limit. Everyday it hurts me to do it.
i used to have a 250 but meh i'd rather stick with cars i love the feeling when they hook in
>mfw 6300redline bash in ls1
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.
Cars push you into the seat, much more feeling in it.
>finding a bike big enough to support his weight
Maybe that's why he's so aggro against bikers, I remember him saying ages ago he'd purposely ram bikers if he could, to teach them a lesson and to NOT FUCK WITH HIM ON HIS ROAD
Holy shit, dude, I just found out. I know we don't like those posts, but man... I lived on Die Hard
What I actually came here to ask is how do electric cars accelerate? Is it just like on/off? Because that sounds stupid.
I imagine it will go like this.
>Bunch of people show up to the meet
>Probably 5-6 vehicles
>Chat for 30min, shitpost irl and rev their engines
>Cruise/hoon will start
>Half will turn off since victor is too far for Northerns
>other half will be done for racing
>Jimmy still won't be back
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.
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
people just go stupid
on ryde rd everyone seems to run reds if they're turning across traffic, in that my light will go green and 3 cars will still pass through
I've taken to doing a skid to try to scare them off
>go on friend's r6 as pillion passenger
>he gives it some beans as we pull away from an intersection
>feel like I'm going to fall off, serious man-touching happening
>come to next red light
>"that was only half throttle, man"
I know what you mean, I've tried a friends cbr600r, but it's more hang on for life than smashed into the seat. At this point the power of a litre is mind boggling to me
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
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.
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.
I wouldn't call a 600 peaky, but more or less. I've compared an R6 to a car with a big turbo before.
>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.
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.
>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
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.
Why haven't you killed yourself yet falcunt?
Babyblades are CBR250RR MC22s, 91-96 model.
What is it?
If I don't have a migraine and it looks like there's decent interest I'll see if I can make it.
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.
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?
>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.
My brother in law is Queensland. While on a trip there he took me to Palmyra Dragway for some races and I had no idea . I was fucking impressed. You Aussies get it. I'll post periodically with updates on my progress.
Then again, i'm 3 hours behind you.
>tfw still haven't bought all the camera gear I wanted to buy
If you're the blue car do you let the red car go past before turning or do you just go?
>sometimes drive friend's clubman kart
>when we take it out, we're always running it too rich, still scared of leaning it out too much and krakatoa-ing the engine
>go through multiple spark plugs in one day
>having a geeze round parliament house
>go back to car in undergrouns parking
>start it, cranking but not catching
>try again, no luck, check underbonnet shit
>starts without even throttle-pumping on the third go
Fuck, that would've been an awkward nrma call
Sorry I couldn't make it guys. Woke up with a migraine and not enough time to get there anyway. Housemate ended up needing help with some stuff anyway.
Jimmy threw a rod and blew up lel.
Me and a m8 are driving him home.
We took lots of pics and vids so stay posted.
its good that he's ok though. i talked to him on the phone earlier and he said the car had smoke and "weight reduction" but i didnt expect it to be that bad.
was anything saved from the car? did the ipod classic survive?
Midlands, where are you?
Tinted taillights are rice, just saiyan.
Jokes aside, sorry for your lots Jim Jam. Hope you have insurance so you're not too much out of pocket for a new car.
Holy fucking hell, i'm losing my shit over this.
The prophecy was almost true; same thing - different car.
Z1's Z1 everywhere.
