The red VLCT is the ex YUW15H car which was advertised on these forums a while back which my brother bought. We are up the north end of the state. I know of a few quick ones from Hobart but they don't get out much.
I have seen the hilux getting around Launceston a couple of times.
Apparently we are getting better fuel soon but I won't hold my breath.

yeh i remember that lj, went well. had a drag with him in my 13 sec lc, ******* beat me, but not by more than a car length
don't see it no more tho.
good thing about tassie is you can get away with modified cars, it's the only place where you can get caught being an absolute **** and get a caution.
in sydney you get done for a pod filter, over here you drive a car with dropped pipes through town and get nothin more than 'bit loud isn't it?'
wicked roads with no traffic
bad side is nothing to do and lack of decent cars.
ryan (PSI-086) and mitchells vlts (ex YUW15H) are neat and quick, those guys are too bigger girls to drive their cars hard!!!
kidding

no the GTR just had a very worked 202 wit triples on it
yeah it went pretty well

yeah he started it up when the buyer was there n the car was in gear n it jolted into the guys car, hardly a mark on the guys car but lincolns lux didnt look real wel

the black GTR got sold to a m8 of his n it then was involved in a bit of road rage n got run off the road n totalled
lucky it had a cage otherwide the guy would hav prob been killed
was the other drivers fault aparently

lincoln has just bought another LJ 2door which he is puttin a turbo 179 in it, im tryin to talk him into puttin a 1JZ into it

which LC was that? not the yellow (?) 1 wit the v8 in it? i prob know it as i stil lived down there after he sold his black 1
he blew the GTR up once n had to get it rebuilt n it went a little beta after it was done, he changed from triples su to triple strombergs
he also blew the gearbox up in it aswell, he drove it hard everywhere!!
it sounded absolutly insane!!

PSI086 wots done to yours n your brothers VLTs??

My calais only has a AVO stage II cooler, 3" exhaust, filter and boost controller. Ran 13.3 @ 105.5mph on street tyres and 13psi.

My brother's is the ex YUW15H red calais which was for sale on these forums a few months back. It has a Plazaman cooler, T04, EMS computer with coil packs, XF throttle body just to name a few mods. Made 198rwkw on 11psi but should have a little more now the turbo is a bit more healthy.

wha???
my lc??? nah nah it's not yellow and (unfortunately) no v8 resides in the engine bay,
mines a red lc gtr...that needs a rb motor in it!
ryans car fangs eh!! turns you off when your worked lc runs 13.5 and some basta...other guy runs 13.3 with only a fmic, exhaust and more boost...in a heavier car.

troy...haven't seen any of those cars about...vc and vk sound tuff, wouldn't mind seeing them...don't suppose you have heard of a silver vh commodore with roh 5 spokes and a bit of a worked motor, your mate might, used to belong to craig seaton.
who does that green xu-1 belong to?
think i know who owns it...

yeah i know seatons car very well
he used to work wit my bro at roelf vos in kings meadows
went pretty well but i reckon lincolns gtr was just as quick
it was a very neat car n looked and sounded sweet

1 of his good mates, frenchy has/had a brown lx torana that used to b parked at the shell servo in kings meadows, that went very well also, had a 350 in it

brett roy owns the green xu-1, built from ground up, top 80 at the nats, runs on avgas

the vk went pretty well for bak then
belly built the motor for it i think
it supposed to run 12s

yeh i bought seatons vh off him a month or two ago!
am thinking of stuffing motor and box in my lc, add some side drafts and gas and take it down the strip!
belly is like the godfather of quick carby fed cars, he just finished a blown 6 in an hr that should be running easy 13's once it's sorted, ryan and i are pretty good mates with the owner.
how were you in tas for?
what sorta car did you trundle about in?
you should bring your vl when it's done!!!
take it easy

i neva thought seaton would sell that car but then i heard he lost his license for quite a while so guess he had no use for it
wot u goin to do wit the shell?
didnt he hav triples on it n also nos hooked up?
was it the 186 in it or different motor?
he blew a couple up i heard
the 1st motor was the quickest

i was in tassie for bout 5 years but wasnt old enuf 2 drive, well i was for the last year but neva got my license, i had so many wicked cars i could hav driven aswell!!

am definitly bringin the vl down when its done, could hav another shell lined up that i will b playin wit n mite end up sellin both n puttin the 26/30 into sumthin else...

yeah belly knows his stuff
he also builds/built v8 touring car motors
but i would lik zac to go further wit the car n put efi heads on it n do a few other small things but he wont do it lol
it supposed to hav round 320-350rwhp but i doubt it
used to luv goin in that car, he sorta painted elphin sports centre carpark in black stripes when i was down there lol

if you want to put the 26/30 in an lc 2 door you can buy mine!!! haha
yeh the first motor was the quickest, ran a 13.5 at tarmak with wheelspin till near halftrack, just couldn't get traction , was built by brookfield in hobart, red head is the only thing left off the original motor, not much else, we're running a 500 holley on it as we're sorting the bugs out, hasn't been driven for ages so it's a bit tempremental.
i don't know whether to sell the vh and lc and buy a vlt (will make gf happy) or just keep vh and sell lc, or sell vh shell and put motor in lc.
who knows, it's a ******* of a decision.
take it easy cheif

i hav always wanted 2 do a 2dr LJ but puttin that motor in 1 of them is just a recipe for disaster lol
and chassis clearence dont look the best...

is seatons shell stil as smick as always?
i remember drivin round in town 1 nite n we were behind him when he was in his gf car, we were in the black gtr
10minutes later seaton rocks up in his vh still all wet from him just washin it, he gave it a stick down past the cinemas n the gtr kept up wit it wit 3 people in it, seaton was by himself

i do miss those days but u cant beat the car scene up here on the coast, unless u live in melb wit all the 10sec street vls lol
