such stupid contradictions that article has pointed out, like the fact that an aurion has a 200kw v6, but is still not considered nearly as bad as something that is turbocharged and produces less power, and is possibly heavier.

and what exactly makes a car 'green'. if its economy that makes a car 'green' then there lies another contradiction. brand spanking porsches are technically more economical than a 4 cylinder toyota camry. i highly doubt they're going to lift the ban on those though :P
(no i did not make that up: porsche cayman 8.9l/100k, toyota camry 9.9l/100k)

its stupidity, they're only justifying themselves jobs, making new laws in order to confuse everyone, so that the staff in the vic roads call centre have questions to answer; and so they can big-note themselves at press confrences.

in relation to the above question, i doubt a vlt would be considered a 'green' vehicle... not exactly the most economical of cars. besides only hoons drive vl's, and hoons are the devil.

however it does say this:
Turbocharged vehicles will now be banned or exempt based on their power-to-weight ratio, with drivers able to gain exemptions if their vehicle produces less than 125 kW of power per tonne. But the revised rules still leave loopholes for powerful six-cylinder vehicles, which still escape the P-plate ban. The Toyota Aurion and RAV4 V6 offroader both produce more power per tonne than the rules allow but are still deemed suitable for P-platers.

in other words, they're picking and choosing turbo-charged cars based on the old kw/tonne ratio. so theoretically yes, a vlt would be considered under 125kw/tonne, and therefore allowed.

however i wouldnt get too excited untill something appears in writing on the vic roads site, that way you have some sort of proof that the law does exist... other than that article.

vince.

it is stupid i have to agree. they should have jus stuck to the power to weight rather than ban P platers from most of the cars, yeh its all been talked about in other threads and that the restrictions have also saved lives buy its a stupid restriction in my eyes.
i jus hope this actually comes out.

but a VLT is still turbo so you fail.

KEYWORDS bro, TURBO.. V8..

doesn't matter if your turbo is the size of my nutsack.. and its actualy slowing your car down..

its still turbo, even my 4L V8 soarer is not even that powerfull BUT YET its a V8.. so its classed as a "high powered vehicle" that p platers can't drive.

in the end p-platers have NO say in when, if..how and WHY these law's may or may not change.. so meh..

well according to that article the law has changed... based on what that article says there is no reason why we cannot now drive a vl turbo on our p's.
however i will be going to vic roads on monday with the article for confirmation, will let you know what the story is.

The car's in BOLD are p PLATER legal.. ie: SAFE aka..ALLOWED ...and if your still lost, YES YOU CAN THRASH THEM!

200sx turbo S14 = 113 KW per tonne

200sx turbo S15 = 113 KW per tonne
NOTE: the JDM import s15's are only an odd 187kw aswell, so roughly the same as an r34 GTT, so i assume they should be legal under these new law's

300zx TT 4 seater = 135 KW per tonne ..dam because i wanted one.

Ford Falcon BF MK II XR6 Turbo = 137 KW per tonne

1988 VL Commodore SL Turbo Sedan = 111 KW per tonne

1988 VL Calais Turbo Sedan - 108 KW per tonne.. the calais is like 50KG heavier lol

2007 Holden Astra SRi Turbo = 105 KW per tonne

1994 Nissan R33 GTS-T / 1998 R34 GT-T Skyline coupe = 121 KW per tonne

any model TT supra or SOARER are out of the question, 208 KW and both vehicles weigh just over 1.4 T, they come to roughly 142 KW per tonne..

1999 MY99 WRX = 126!!!! kw per tonne, it exceeds by 1KW.. so its considered a high powered vehicle, BTW! a ****en WRX is only 1.2 tonne..wtf, thats so light i never new that!

HOW EVER!

2007 WRX ..non STI.. = 119 KW per tonne..

same with the 2001 WRX non sti.. = 115 KW per tonne..

SO!! as long as p platers are driving a 2001 model or NEWER wrx..they are safe correct ?

So in summation, i basically just did a quick search for car's we see on the road now day's, that p platers either drive or desire to drive.

so with these new law's in place.. ANY silvia.. 180.. 200sx.. ANYTHING with an SR20DET or CA18DET.. can be driven now assuming it is "stock" and unboosted.

so now all p platers can drive a ****en brand spanking new Spec R s15 or a 92 model 180 with 11inch SSR's on the rear, its assumed as a "non high powered vehicle"

same with skylines, which is what im SO HAPPY about now, r34 and r33 skylines are now drivable under the new law's.. ive always wanted a 34 manual gtt.. mmmmmm..

EDIT: a thought came to my head.. but has anyone stopped to think that perhaps this has nothing to do with being "green"
and that its just another way for the government to make more money through fines..
think about it, what is every p plater with half an interest in fast car's going to do..
purchase a turbo vehicle yes ?

now whats that lead to..
more car's on the road during peak hour and the likelyhood of fines and traffic infringements INCREASING ..

when i got my v8 soarer i was tempted to belt it around every corner, where as in my 1.8L bmw 318..that went NO WHERE, i was just like..cbf, drive safely and be responsible.

so i think this "scheme" is also poisened with a bit of revenue making
