I was coming home from McDonalds (Had the munchies:D ) and i stopped at the traffic lights and a Red VX SS pulled up next to me a started revving his engine and i thought to myself " Should i or should i not" and decided to race him. After i was revving the sh!t out of my car the lights turned green and off we went. I took off sideways and so did he and i was a car length ahead of him, then when i got to 170km/h he started to make ground ([email protected] those things are fast in top end) and suddenly i heard a bang and i thought "Oh sh!t i [email protected] up my car" then i saw the SS slowing down in my rear view mirror with smoke coming from under the car. I did a u-turn and went to see if he needed help. When i got there he opened the bonnet and there was oil everywhere. The car was totally [email protected] Lucky for him i had my mobile and called the RACV and asked for a tow truck. Unfortunately i did'nt find out what caused the problem but the thing that i do know is that it was his bosses car, OUCH :eek:

Sounds like Holden have a real problem with oil in the LS1. Have they had a "rework" of this problem yet? If not, they'd wanna pull there fingers out..

The LS1 might be powerful but they are CRAP!!!!

These problems they are having is ridiculous. I don't think they'll get any better until they start building them here.

What is the source of the oil problems...is it the pump or is it surging thats causing the trouble.
I heard a while ago that holden informed everyone that owned an LS1 to add an extra litre or so of oil to combat the surging problem.
Now thats a quick fix if I ever saw one.

I'm pretty sure its the pump itself.

Mate, thats decent a 200kw XR8. Goes to show when the windsors are run in after 20k, they are even faster, to actually get a ahead and keep up until 170km/h is a win in my books.
In general roads you'd drag to 140km/h at the most. I reckon after an XR8 is ran in times of under 6.5 for 0-100 and under 14.5 1/4 mile is more than likely.

Reckon the 220 XR8 would be even quicker.:D :D :D

Pete, you reading this :read:

Like I said before, D Flint said the 220 has the measure of VX SS up to 160km/h. I will not be scared my friends for mine will have their measure all the way!

Looks like some of the LS1.com fellas are disputing whether this thread is genuine, but seems they don't have the balls to get on here and comment.

Maybe i was going so good because he was having some sort of problem before we hit 170 km/h (most likely)
