i wanted to know cause me and a few mates (not all vlt's but still very nice cars) are thinking of comeing down all takeing our own cars to have a cruise round tassie ill probly post a thread on the vic section when i find out when where comeing asking if any one want to come along

it would be cool if we could meet up with some of u boys from tassie and check some of the nice rides you s got down theere

Theres plenty around but only a handfull of really nice ones. Theres probably heaps more I don't know of though. I have plenty of mates who drive them. I'm sure we could organise to get a few people together if you were keen.

Its an ANDRA sanctioned track so the usual cage under 11 seconds, etc applies. Long sleeves, trousers and helmet. Next meeting is the Test & Tune in August as it closes over winter.

i have a vlct. id like to consider it a pretty nice one, but its probibly not up to vlhero's standards because apparently there arent any good ones around. theres ex BOOSTR, flat 10 second vlct now getting around hobart, but that wouldnt be any good either otherwise it would have gotten a mention from vlhero.

ryan and baz both have awesome vlt's. theres also a black one with 300rwkw. few others about...

Andy would you expect anything else from someone like VLHERO who drives round with their head up their arse.

Your car might be stock but its macco and actually a real Calais.

Still a mainland car. Pretty sad that no one in Tassie has built a decent high HP VLT. $18,500 would've built something pretty special.

Baz's is definitely up there but isnt quite as pristine these days as what it has been in the past. Ryan's has got the power but the chrome rims and traditionalist styling really let it down.

Andy, I didnt say there wasnt any nice VLT's round I said I hadnt seen any. Ive never seen your car but I'm sure its nice.

Ryan, you are a deadset f*ckhead mate. Have I ever said my car was a real Calais? NO. Have you ever seen my car? NO. Do you even know what the f*ck your on about!? NO.

And wtf is "macco"?? Sorry, Im not up with the Low Head lingo.
Well tell me how much "traditionalist" styling there is different between a lot of big name cars??? PLATNM, BOOSTR, VLGMH, RAJAB, etc???
All Baz's car need is a detail and how hard is a set of rims to change? Its not like I don't have other sets to put on.

And for me not knowing what I'm on about? Well I'd dare say I know a fair bit more than you ever will.

Macco, hmm well does an abreviation for the work immaculate come to mind?? I thought I'd leave a few letters off so you could actually pronounce it.

And $18500 would not build you much of a VLCT. Trust me because I have actually built my car up from scratch and its no where near the standard of what you would call an a decent high power VLT and has cost me a fair bit more than that.

PS PHS don't judge everyone on here the same as a certain individual.
