er, Fonz mate, in case you havent noticed, not all people that buy HSVs and Tickford/FPV vehicles do so purely for the purpose of racing, a stock 12 second street car with a 3 year warranty? do you know how much power is required for a 1700kg car to do a 12? i'll give you a hint: A LOT.
imagine 300rwkw and 1700kg on a wet city street...you sneeze, you spin....into other cars...and hurt people...not everyone is a race car driver and not everyone is as good at controlling power oversteer as you/me/we are.
what they should do is make the 300kW limit, thats ok, but make the engines easier to tune, so the power is there for the taking, but you have to work a little to get it, this way the people who want to be able to say the have the most powerfull car on the block (small penis syndrome) can get the stocker, but the ones interested in actually going fast can perform a few relativly cheap mods for a fair bit more go.
I can get new Genuine Holden/Ford/Audi/Land Rover/Honda parts cheap, PM me!
