No tail shaft problem.

Had problem with rear down force as I had less than a 1/4 tank of petrol.

Hell of alot of cabin noise after the 230 mark though

Hehehe I can see how that would be a problem, might just have to splurge on an All wheel drive falcon wagon to give you that extra height when they are released lol! :D
