says the person who let a guard rail eat his car :P

it's not compulsory nor illegal to have a speed limiter removed
i think capa makes you sign a liablity form anyway to cover their asses.

if he wants the limiter off let him, no-ones liable if he stuffs up, what's he going to say "oh i crashed my car because fordmods.com told me where i can get the speed limiter removed"

freedom of information is allowed as long as it doesn't directly cause things to go sideways :D

you mean when people wernt stupid enough to neutral dump their auto boxes? nowdays idiots get around wanting to got twice the speed limit, D bombing thier autos so car manufactures have to idiot proof the vehicles to prevent idiots doing this stuff.

There the ones that try to use cheap parts so people cant do burnouts anymore. Im sure, 50 years ago when you were a boy, cars got a thrashing, and lasted... When my kids have cars, they'll only see drifting and burnouts on tv, they wont know what its like to drive a car without traction control, stability control, and other stuff. The more you lower the speed limit and control peoples driving, you lower their ability to drive.

if you get caught doing that sort of speed on an open limit road in the nt would get you pulled over anyways because you aren't driving to conditions IE animals, 'locals' etc. they would probably book you for wreckless driving or dangerous driving.

When theres no speed limit, the cops are to busy solving real crime.... The reason there is no speed limit, is cos theres not enough people out there, so the few police they have dont have the time to police the freeways.

A roo will probably wreck the car going 100kmh, thats why my car is insured for more than its worth... Just XR6 17x8, even with original rims, it wont rip it up. When its wet, I can flatten it at the lights and it spins hard till forth... otherwise its a hard. The only way to get it sideways is to leave it in a low gear and flatten it hard around a corner.

Ive spent time trying. If you get it spinning on the dirt, you can get some twinnies happening, but it still grips pritty quick. You cant really get the rear to spin doing a u turn, thats annoying... Had to learn to do three point turns

yes well its as he bought it, from fraud ex rental. still has the hubcaps on it. goes f**k well tho. he has raced some other ba falcons and whooped em, beaten rtv v8 ute. and has also nearly kept up with an xr8 ba. heh maybe he should get some mods done. my ef used to beat his ba when he first got it, so nothing that special!
