      Now that the car is rego'd i've had the opportunity to do some "testing"

      With the 255 et's on 20psi, It's pretty much a peddle fest trying to find some traction till about 160kmh then i can feed the power in. For the power its making on the dyno, it top ends cars of similar dyno racing numbers like they backed off.

      Need to work out how to put some more power down early on and i dare say it'd be a hard car to beat, any suggestions without the adjustability of a propper 4 link, i know a few fast VL guys read this thread occasionally.

      Need to test on a 28x9. It should soften things about a bit and make it nore forgiving to peddle.

        Adj upper control arms in rear, nose down 2 deg's. Few buddies had great success with proper anti-roll bars

              The lower shock mount had to be moved inwards 5mm on the diff, rear bumper and inner lip had to trimmed, wheels have to be 8", 3 3/8 BS not 3.5" BS like before for an extra 2mm clearance... Yes its tight but it tucks tyre :D

              I might swap springs out for something about 1/2" taller, scab a small spring assist bag off one of my 4x4 mates and go have a run in 100% street trim at the end of the month. Would love to see a mid 9.

                To get a 275 under my old vn I had to split the tub and move it in towards he rail. Your way sounds easier!

                  don't forget the heavy handed use of the bashometer, i didn't mention it because i assumed it was a given

                            you tapped the inner skin on the lip to gain an inch?

                            275 is possible untubbed even superlow, u need all the tricks though
