I dunno if i'll be coming on this cruise.

Sounds like a good one but yeah i won't be attending. Not that i have a VL anyway...

Anyway a VS could out-brake some of these cars by far, and probably pull a hill climb better with more torque than a VL but ya know...

Just **** stiring.

Nah probably not Ollie...

I drive a VS, you guys drive VL's, its time for me to move on from the old VL days.

Anyway if things work out with the thing i am working on at the moment i may even end up driving euro stuff.

Haha, so you'd rather drive to Maccas or the BWCP every weekend and SIT in your car rather than actually DRIVE it?? This cruise is gonna be ****in fun. My diff is gonna break half way up Mount Mee, and cos the breaks are shonky, I'm gonna roll backwards down the hill and take out all your VLs.

I suppose though that the roads are best suited towards cars that can cut a sub 16 second 1/4 Mile pass

By the way, as the email Ollie sent out says - NO TAILGATING

Some of the corners are sharp and blind, and if someone takes them too quick and has a spin, there could be some real trouble...

What i was trying to say is that i can't see the point in me coming along with a whole bunch of VL's and being the odd person out with a VS.

And while the roads might be aimed at "sub 16 sec cars" they're sure as hell not aimed at 16 year old cars which were never set up with great deals of torque. Not to mention the breaking power of a billy cart.

If you wanna see something that would eat those corners for breakfast, watch something like Brendans R33 climb it, or for that matter, a new SAAB 9-3

Anyway i'll think about coming, i doubt it though.

I didn't realise we were goin to these hills to prove such a point.
A cruise is a cruise, we're not there to see who can get from a to b the quickest and arrive with the coolest brakes and the most torque. Who gives a **** weather the vl is 16 years old, there'd be a few vls on the cruise that would certainly handle better through the hills than an toyota lexen, probably mince it on its way too.
as for the saab and the r33, who cares ?

Thats exactly why i won't be there, or any future cruise, there's just no point in going.

Hey Guys,

This is to everyone bringing up what happened on saturday night - if you're not involved, its none of your business.

Lets keep this **** off the forum as there is no need for it. The parties involved have worked this out and anyone still bringing it up should shut up now.

I will be speaking to a moderator andy any mention of it is to disapear.

Lets keep this about a cruise and not the darker moments of a past event.

Cruise, Have fun, Don't kill yourselves or anyone else and just enjoy your time up there.

Yes, I'll be coming.
I would bring my g/f...if I had one. lol....actually, need someone with (ie: knows how to use) a digi cam to get some good footage & shots. So I'll probably have a mate riding shotgun.

Hey Rob, I'll take you up on that braking challenge!

Andy, why aren't ya coming this time round?

I will be coming along - my missus will prolly be with me too (and for those horny young idiots with nothing better to do.. if ya crack on to her, i will crack on to you hehehe)

my car actually has better brakes than it should (n/a vl calais, with turbo shell / brakes / diff / etc)... running brand new front discs - so stopping shouldnt be all that bad for me - and should have a bit more down low torque with the cam gears being fixed up tomorrow (yay !!)...

I will have a video camera with me, and will edit the film and put it up on the net after the cruise (might take me a few days / weeks as i gotta find a cable im missing to hook it up to the computer)...

Anyone got a UHF CB ??? always a good idea for at LEAST a few ppl to have these in case ppl get lost, and general chit chat on the cruise which entertains ppl like me (since i have no stereo)...

I will see if i can put up some maps so ppl can get a grasp of where they are going etc...

I was up to the "destination" on the weekend on a seperate cruise - and the cruise will be a good run to DRIVE in your car (not being a di<khead, or bad shi+ will happen in the hills !!!)...

Lets make this cruise a good one - and one that isnt going to bring a bad name to a) ourselves, b) this website, and c) car enthusiasts in general.

See ya at the "meeting" point

If i'm coming, i may as well make it worthwhile. I'll bring along a VHS & Digital Video Camera.

I'll film everything that i can and allowing a week, i should be able to actually burn DVD's for people who want them.

Obviously a DVD won't come cheap (about $12) but its a good way of seeing the cruise over and over.

I'll also do some VHS copies if anyone wants them.

Ollie or Andy or Brendan, whoever has the old cruise footage, do you want me to include this on the Video/DVD... kind of an Exchaser series??

hey rob that actually sounds like not a bad idea at all.. hahah 4 exchaser cruises on the one dvd.. could be sweet.. take note tho.. that the majority of film taken on the first 3 cruises is in the same car.. and only at a few points do i get the chance to film in the turbo variety of vl. Thanks Ogre, Andy and Brendan.

I will also bring my video camera rob, and if andy gets my tape back to me, i'll bring it on the cruise for u to borrow and dub if u want. i have 2 good vids full of action actually. so yeah.. :P

c-yas there..
