  1. My mate was selling his VX commodore SS . It’s stock with a twin plate clutch and of cause a 6spd manual. This will be my starting point. Take all the running gear out of this and sell the rest as a roller with out the drive train. Stock standard the LS1 would only be a small hp gain on the 300hp L28 but much more torque. so if I’m going to do this I’m going to need more power. Enquires have been made. lots of photos on the web, and heaps of these LS swaps into Zeds done in the USA and quite a few road going Zeds in Aus as well.
  2. So after a little research and manly the cheapest option was to go to the dark side and have chosen to do an LS swap.
  3. Its been a while , but stuff is still happening. After Bathurst Challange 2018 it got me thinking. Ive been running an L28 for a long time now. So i started looking into what other options where out there. Theirs the monster stroker from Les Collins. 3.5lt. around 375hp. Then the RB option. Maybe a Peter Mac Build. the horse power could be anything you want, as we've seen. Then the LS swap, endless options. So yes , something is happening, just have to tie up a few loose ends before i can say which direction i have chosen
  4. Looks like a nice cruse. I Should be there.
  5. Very Interesting to see how much went into the development
  6. When the summer comes around I’ll have my bike legs back and we’ll go for a ride for sure.
  7. Sorry mate. Can’t make it. Good luck, hope the weather holds out.
  8. I love my cycling. but this time of year i keep it to a minimum. once the warmer weather comes around i start riding to work a few times a week. last weekend i went up the warby trail and stopped at the Millgrove bakery. the coffee machine was out of order. i couldn't get my caffeine fix. struggled all the way home. lol.
  9. The forecast for the next two weeks is going to be very ordinary. This time of year not that flash for getting the Zeds out. I don’t mind driving in the rain, but it’s hard to get good numbers and even harder to organise a drive day two weeks out. Once the weather is on the improve we’ll try and put something together.
  10. Another great drive day, albeit at Sandown
  11. I can feel a group photo coming on. Even if your not entered come down to Sandown and see if you can score a ride as a passenger. Or get your car in the group photos.
  12. Fantastic Dave. Looking forward to see how all the Zeds go. This is going to be a fun day.
  13. Weather forecast fine and sunny. Not to late to enter. You Don’t need to be a member of a club. Hopefully we get a few Zeds out there. Or come out and see if you can score a ride as a passenger.
  14. Hi Guys, just bumping this event. If you want to get involved it’s not to late. Either the track event or the car shows. There a massive weekend of Motorsport for the enthusiast and social gatherings. Camp at the track or book your accommodation. Don’t take to long as the event is almost full. It will be a weekend to remember. Hope to see you there. Gordo
  15. Use this as a drive day. Good chance to sort your cars handling out . do the first session and have a de brief with all the guys, what its doing and what its not doing. try a few things out for the next session .Or go as a passenger to feel what other cars go and handle like. like a drive day. Meet at Sandown 7.30am, do some laps, have coffee. do some more laps and have more coffee.

  17. Last year after the Sunday racing, presentation and putting the car on the trailer I was ready for a rest. A lot of the guys camp as did I. Was a great way of meeting people. Group bbqs and get togethers after dinner. We packed up early Monday morning and left about 8.00am for Melbourne. Don’t think I could drive part way home on Sunday after the weekend.. it’s only three days off work. Thursday,Friday and Monday.
  18. I dropped into MPC at Kilsyth today. Took the Zed for a cruse. Pretty good turn out. They had a dyno day running from 9.00am to 4.00pm . Anyone know who the white zed belongs to?
  19. if you have apportioning valve it typically will adjust the rear brake line. you should be able to wind the rear brakes off.
  20. So For the guys not doing the Sandown Sprint tomorrow. There is a drive day on as well. Meeting at Sandown 9.00am , departs at 9.30 heading out to the Easten side of town and into the hills. If your coming along be there buy 9.00am. three regrouping stops for photos, A coffee stop and lunch stop at the turn around point. if you have a CB radio bring it with you. I’ll be doing the Drive. The Drive will finish back at Sandown race track about 2.00pm, and maybe some slow laps on the track.
  21. Hey Gareth. What a bummer mate. You may need to prep your car the weekend before. Good Luke for tomorrow, the weather is looking good. And not many cars . I’m told 4 groups of about 10. Bring lots of fuel.
  22. Hi Guys. I’m heading down to the Island on Friday to watch Time attack. Will be going passed Supercheap Auto at 9.30am if anyone is interested.
  23. I had this on my radar Dave. Was going to ride shotgun with the young fella on his L plates. But he had to work this morning. How was it?
