um lol? maybe a V8 Falcon. they have it in there mind that you can't drive a s**t old stock 302 V8 in a XA or something but your allowed to drive a AU XR6 manual which would absolutley smoke the old 302. but the 302 is a V8 so it's not allowed. so retarded

the rule is no V8's, no turbos apart from turbo diesel. no high performances 6 cylinders (like high output Audi's etc).

Is it a 1 mod rule? That's generous.

Make headers your one mod, then cam change and diff gears and you end up with a decent P plater car.

i thought vic was on power to weight ratio and you cant increase the stock engine performance by a percentage.

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.

haha do you really think a XA 302 would beat a AU XR6?? :lol:

It would actually be quicker than the XA GT

Victoria used to have a power to weight ratio and an engine capacity limit (no more than 3.5L per tonne) but in mid-2008 they changed it.. I turned 18 in December 2008 and couldn't drive my dad's old, slow (but absolutely beautiful) 4.5L V8 Merc which I learnt to drive in! Shattered!

Yet I would have been able to get in a brand new Falcon/Commodore/etc that would beat the hell out of it.

Hmm..

Oh and P.S. Any non-modified N/A Falcon 6-cylinder is perfectly legal. Go for it!
