  1. The fact is, you can almost always buy a cheaper car and spend the difference in price and end up with a really quick car. ie. get a Commo or Falcon V8 for <$60k and spend $100,000 on them and sure, they'll be quicker than a Ferrari 360 . But they still wont BE a Ferrari. Same with the Rex- you can get it to be quicker than a stock GT-R but it will never BE the car a GT-R is. Regarding warranty - as soon as you do any performance mods that goes straight out the window.
  2. Two fairly funny/stupid ones : Sitting in an office lobby and one guy says to his mate "Thats a nice Skyline out there" his mate says " Ahh theyre more common than Holdens these days" I was thinking if that was true you wouldnt even be having the conversation- my car was parked behind a Commodore and it didnt rate a mention. Another guy told me he could buy an R34 for $11,000 so I said "buy it then thats really cheap - it woud be a 1998 model at the oldest" he said "they are cheap cos there's so many of them around , more than Holdens " I said " how many Holdens do you see in that carpark? The only Skyline there is mine"
  3. GTS-40Rced ,you,re nearly right, Ford GT40, but an origional Gulf le mans car- $5,000,000 US at least, but they won Le mans 24 hr race 4 years running. Next would be a Porsche 917k .
  4. Duncan, it's illegal to advertise a price ex GST without stating "plus GST" . It is tax evasion to offer a cash price which doesn't include GST. So if they say "we didn't include GST since we thought you'd paty cash" they are guilty of BOTH tax evasion and false advertising. If they piss you off dob them in to ACCC AND ATO!
  5. That is correct, int21h, and has been since GST was introduced.

    Series 1 or 2?

    Looks like a series 1 to me, unless someone changed the seats, steering wheel, dashboard, bonnet, headlights, and the trim between the tail lights......If it looks, tastes, smells, feels, and sounds like a series one,it probably is.
  7. Rockers n' rollers would all be in retirement homes by now
  8. Yoda, a 12 cylinder fires 6 times per revolution unless it's a two stroke
  9. I follow all that, they have a different firing order etc., but they still fire one cylinder per 180 degrees (four cyl four stroke) of crankshaft revolution, just like an inline four, but they sound distinctly different. I cant figure out why, and I haven't heard a satisfactory explanation. For instance, if you changed the camshafts on an inline four to give a different firing order the car (or bike) would sound the same. In fact I believe early Kawasakis had different firing order (1,4,2,3) from Honda (1,4,3,2) but sounded pretty much the same. If it's doing 1000 rpm then it's firing 1000 times a minute at 1/1000 minute intervals regardless of its firing order or configuration. So why does it sound different?
  10. Goddamn, what happened there?
  11. Drift is slower into the corner, through the corner, out of the corner, down the straight, under brakes, into the corner, through the corner, out of the corner, down the straight........................................................................ ................................................................................ ................................................................................ ...................................................................
  12. OK, so they fire one bank then the other bank, but if it's a 4 into 1 exhaust I wouldn't expect that to make any difference. BTW, if you dont think Subarus sound like VWs you haven't heard a VW with a 4 into 1 exhaust on it. " VW has a metal chain on it" where?
  13. I know that VWs (old Beetles, Kombis ) and Subarus have the same engine layout ie flat four, but I don't understand why they sound different to an inline four. Surely they fire once every 180 degrees just like an inline, but they sound completely different. Any ideas?
