    • i think the rule that applies.. if you can't see the rust.. it doesn't exist
    • decided to cover the number plate. never know what could happen these days
    • Hey melon head... is there a second pic? Is broken
    • @XTREME KARTS XF Mark, stumbled across a pic of the wagon in March on it's first outing at Calder Park raceway on the semi slicks. 
    • See you'd get my respect as a fellow driver that sticks to the rules. I may pass you but I would do it safely unlike the twits that have only time for themselves. If I'm driving at the signed speed and you're up my ass because you think you're more important, guess what.. I don't give a rats. Sit there and boil and if you hit me, Congrats you're buying me a new car.
    • try doing that in a diesel gemini.. i'm also one that slows down and gets swamped and wonders where the safety cameras are in this Danger zone...  load of crap indeed.  i've sent Vicroads emails a few times of the Geelong road (werribee ) roadworks saying the trucks(not allowed to drive in the right lane) push right up your ass to make you move into the fast lane or be run off the road? where the right lane you have cars going ALMOST as fast as the trucks that have the pedal pegged regardless of sign..
      fair enough there's no sign of a road worker in these areas 90% of the time, but the point of the sign is because the road is narrow etc. they could put a fixed camera up and make millions in a week
    • Yeah not that simple ... very first thing I did was cleared, refreshed, restarted and fresh installation. No effect or change.

      As far as I know the other guys don't use the same version as I do, I use an old stable one (6.4.7)

    • Spied today in Bathurst on Mt Panorama on conrod straight, 2 XD Falcons in convoy going up the hill. 1 silver and the other 1 was light blue. Number plate on the blue one read SLO????  I couldn't get a pic was around 5pm, its been a long day. Was out for a sunday drive today on a wednesday.  Anyway if your members here it was nice to scoot past you. I was in my black PT cruiser. 




    • Doing it legally (ie: keeping within the confines of maximum wheel track variation), you wouldn't be able to use that wheel combo. 3.5" backspace on an 8.5" wheel would stick out a ridiculous amount. You can only vary the wheel track by 26 mm in either direction and in some instances you cannot narrow it at all.

      To convert to offset (ET) you halve the width (4.25"), subtract the backspace and then convert that to mm. After all that faffing about, that would be 3/4" or the equivalent of ET -19. Going that far out on both sides would put you 38mm wider in track... Technically illegal.

      Best off going with 7" on the front with no more than 3.5" backspace (ET0). This would still sit out further than say a snowflake which is 15x7 ET+10 (sits inwards)

      A common Falcon styling fault is a narrow rear track. To fill out the rear guards, you really need to be at least an inch wider than the front for a given offset. I don't think the 8.5s will work, at 5" backspace that will put you right at the inner limits of track width, and the rim will actually sit 1/4" further inwards from the guard compared to the front. The 3.5" might fill things out but as stated, not kosher (stick out too far).

      What are the available backspaces for the 15/7s?

    • The trend has had an effect on my driving .. it's made me stick to the speed limit no matter what.

      There's a couple of areas with roadworks on my normal commute. One is clearly signed to drop from 100 down to 60 or sometimes 40 (Thompson's road roundabout). Most of the time I feel like the only driver that actually slows to 60 and I do it for the WHOLE ZONE, from sign to sign. I'm constantly swamped by douchebags who either make no attempt to slow at all, or can't take an extra thirty seconds out of their self important lives to obey the law for the full length of the roadworks.

      The result is I make damn sure I'm doin 60 right up to the last sign. Then I accelerate back to 100, where I promptly pass them again because they can't seem to count up that high. Why can't they slow down for people's safety in the workplace when they then don't pay enough attention to the surroundings to do 100 before or after the roadworks?

      That bit boggles the mind.
