Question dose anyone know?

hey ya I was just wondering if anyone knows if I will be able to drive a BA XR6 non turbo on my P plates in Vic. because I don’t want to buy one and then be fined and hassled by the cops because it over power to weight. I really can’t wait to I get it. It should be so cool yay… Are there any problems that I should look out for when buying one? Thanx for the help

Re: dose anyone know?

yeah, the limit for a p plater is 8kg/kw in vic. that means that you would need.... if the car is 1.7 tonnes.... 212.5KW at the flywheel. so you are home safely. (can you tell i am only just off my p's???) lol

Re: dose anyone know?

125kw/tonne is the limit.

Turbo is useless because
240kw/1.75tonne = 137kw/tonne So no go.

182kw/1.75 --> OK 104kw/tonne

There's also cubic capacity rules - i cant recall but it'll meet that because the standard falcon meets it, also a 4L.

Re: dose anyone know?

make sure it's got lsd, i have noticed that it gets released with out lsd in some cases! If your buying it new, decide upon if you want premium sound, leather and sun roof because later down the track to get these items it will be much more expensive!

Make sure it's manual and phantom purple!! :D
