    VN Group A Race Car (round 2 of the V8's)

    I was going to buy a VX that had a 6.0l conversion, cage, etc. But after talking to the V8 guys and weighing up my options, it seemed best to start with something lighter.

    Enter 1 very clean VN Group A commodore race car.

    It is in very good condition, with immaculate paint inside and out. Even inside the boot. I really wanted a VS Supercar as they have the best aero package. But the pickings are slim, and this is cheaper than building a car from scratch.
    The motor chopped out its key way and the cam snapped into 3. So the guy decided to sell the car rather than fix the motor.
    I plan on installing a 6.0l and 6 speed. And get it onto the track ASAP. And I will upgrade things like suspension and brakes or whatever the car is lacking in as I go.
    Eventually I would like to convert it to a VP for the better aero package. They have a wing and splitter.

          Keen to see where this goes!

          And what do you mean when you call it a Group A car? Is it built to similar spec, or is it a genuine article? (which I thought would be pretty damn hard to find and epic $$$$)

            It's a Group A replica. I don't have $200k for a real one.

              I was close to pulling the trigger on Jim's LS1 VN for similar reasons.

                        It has no motor.

                          It's all pretty basic - springs and shocks, no coilovers. Cage is very good, not awesome. Brakes are VE like the green car.

                          It's a good base to start from. It was on a private page on Facebook.

                              You are broken haha

                              Looks like one that had build thread on here somewhere.
                              an easy fix is get a mate to drive in front of you at 60 then 80 then 100 and mark in on your speedo with some liquid paper.
