yeh. i know that it USED to be power to weight. but now thats irrelevant. i got my P's in August 2008. just after the no v8 or turbos at all rule come out.

i hate that people who think just because it's a V8, even if it's a clapped out 30y.o V8, is quicker. just because it has 2 more cylinders

Hey where did get the idea that the xr6 was better than a 302.Off the line the xr6 but over a distance mate the 302 and mate there is no substitute for that grunty v8 note not like the buzz box 6.

stock for stock, an E series V8 will get walked by a 6, all I have to say is typical Ipswich bogan. You think more cyls = better.

ive got a ba xr6 with extractors + typhoon intake, these mods are legal in nsw, because the rta specify "no engine performance mods that substantially increase power" when i asked them about this they simple said (after 2 months of trying to get an answer) if it doesn't need an engineering certificate its A ok.
thats an example of a p plate car that will smoke alot of old v8's that are illegal to drive.
going by the red book, a brand new EF xr8 is 165kw, 398nm, and 0-100 in 8.1, my legal ba xr6, has more power, probably the same nm (since mods) and does 0-100 in 7.06 (average of my times). think about a slightly modded fg!!
its going to be interesting when ford release the new eco boost engine, even tho no p platers are gonna buy one, it will be an illegal car to drive thats slower then the 6 which is legal to drive.

Oh it's completely stupid. But it's an easy way for Vicroads/the Govt. to make themselves look good by taking "action". Personally I think some sort of drivers ed program should be compulsory in schools, I mean sure you're always going to have dumbasses but I think it would make a difference.

my mate drives a v8 land rover (piece of s**t) and has gotten caught driving it and copped the fines, but its just a fuel guzzling heavy constant 4wd lump of a thing, i think a standard charade would beat it, but the law says he cant drive a v8 so he has to bend over and take the consequence
