Cruise with my Dark Side Mates

2 good mates and I went for a gentle cruise today. Started at 6-30am and after a quick stop at Maccas went on the South Eastern Freeway to Murray Bridge. Had a bit of a photo shoot and also took a video from behind with all 3 cars in full song.

Then took the cars out of town a bit and did some video work...we all took it in turns of going past the video at 110Km/h ...Our rest area where we parked also had a smooth concrete pad about 20 meters long so I took a video of each car taking off gently ( because we didn't want to damage the tyres!).

Some happy snaps attached...great day!

Cars were:

VX Series II Gen III with Holden By Design body kit. LS1 Edit and dual 2 1/2 De Fillipo exhaust - 216RWKW - AUTO

VY Series II Clubsport LE - 6 speed manual and LS1 edit - 237.5 RWKW

BA MkII 6 speed dual 3" De Fillipo , Unichip 220.5 RWKW

The Clubby seemed to have a lot more pull than mine and the power is a lot smoother (if that makes sense) whereas mine seemed a bit more harsh...

The 6 speed in the Clubby isn't as good as the MkII...even darkside mate 1 said that my box was better.

The VX is surprisingly (spelling) quick and sounds very nice with the full exhaust.

Re: Cruise with my Dark Side Mates

Your red beast looks very nice with the Quad system.
Cheers John

Re: Cruise with my Dark Side Mates

There are some great pic's there but that Clubby take's some getting used to, I'm sorry but I just can't come to grip's with the bodykit and the look of the rear on the VY, the VX is so much a better looking vehicle as with the BA.

Wait untill the Boss gets a few k's under its belt, and maybe a edit ! then line them up again.
