SIKVLT 09-06-10 06:55

What about some v8 times ? anyone takin their slug down the 1/4 ?

madrx3boy 09-06-10 10:34

The only V8 VL I remember seeing go down the strip was 2 years ago, a Gold/champagne Injected 5L Calais with a T56 behind it, from memory did around a mid-14, not bad for a bog standard Inj 5L (I think the 6-speed helped and not sure if the car was originally 3 Litre with 3.45 diff or whether it had a 3.08 V8 diff in it).

I haven't seen that car since - does anyone know where it is? Gold/champagne (same colour as ATEMPT VL Calais Turbo), Inj 5L Calais with T56, had a turtle-shell engine cover same colour as car. I saw it on TM soon after that race but haven't seen or heard of it since. Was in Waikato I think.

PROHSV? Now 330 stroker, supercharged and twin throttles? Use to have different plates when it had the stock 304 inj

madrx3boy 09-06-10 10:48

Could well be, I don't think there's too many gold calais' around in NZ, got any pics?

The one in the middle (1HOTVL) is Holden Tiger Gold, and PROHSV far left is a Toyota Corolla colour

madrx3boy 09-06-10 10:59

I just carjam'd that plate PROHSV, comes up as a Berlina (have a close look at the nosecone and taillight surrounds on that car above ^), previous plate was BADGPA in 2002. Car I saw definitely didnt have a P/Plate as I would have remebered if it did.

The car I saw was same colour as this:

NZ EVLHSV 09-06-10 11:08

Ah that colour, nah sorry don't know that one. I remember when PROHSV was BADGPA, he wanted to buy my plates because he said people always thought is read BAD GRAMPA
