I've never owned a V8 full stop, so I'm just bloody happy that all remains well with mine. The only problem is one of the connecting rods in the tailgate has failed meaning a large screwdriver is required for levering the right-side latch. Had it fixed once and am worried if I fix it again something else will break. Talk about crazy, tailgate not working on a ute.
I've got to say that this guy is not exactly an angelic driver. Took me for a quick spin, manual, herrods zorst, Melbourne weather (aquaplane city).
Uphill, breaks traction gets it to 5000rpm, holds it there while he slams into second, holds it through second for a while, slams it to third, after a few more seconds finally traction comes into play, meanwhile we've hit the 70km speed limit and are couple of hundred metres down the road all the while sitting on 5 grand, holding one beautiful note the whole bloodytime. His mate can do the same thing through to 4th/5th; CAPA SC kit!!
This guy used to drag a V8 Cortina and has put in some serious hoon hours buy the sounds of it. Likes to drag Maloos with his trailer on back. In any case he's been made aware of FF and him and his mates may be dropping by soon.
