dw about the powlice

ive seen turbo falcons on p's, a guy i know had a 200kw silvia on p's.

felony had a 350hp falcon on his p's for 6 months no hassles (hes 22 now so wasnt long ago)

lots of insane cars out there on ps.

the best one of all time is cameron cloke(plays for collingwood)

he went to my school.
he got a ba xr6(non t i think)
and he got pulled over for driving without his p plates, doing 180, and driving a car which is over the limit!



needless to say he wasnt happy and TAC being a major sponsor of collingwood, he got fined by collingwood too. lost his license for 6 months.


now he still drives the car with no p plates but now its got big black stripes down it (cobra style) on a orange ba falcon.

its power to weight... AND litre to tonne

so yeh if it doesnt pull enough watts... it may have too big of an engine?

just good luck keeping the money

He hasn't got a problem to worry about with the cops.

I don't know if it much worse over the Eastern side of Melb, but i haven't been pulled over yet in my car (touch wood), they all seem to pre-occupy themselves with pulling over Commonwhore drivers. Cause there are so many d***head ones around my area.

Hopefully all goes well for you mate, enjoy the car!
