My Aussie SSV Commodore

G'day all,

thought I'd take a look at what's happening over there in the forums and introduce myself.

Here's my baby ... SSV Holden Commodore in redhot, with track stripes, factory 19" wheels powdercoated in satin black, badges painted satin black, lowered 1" 1/2 in the front, 2" in the rear ... and then there's the engine ....

GM Motorsports 231/[email protected] LSA, GM Motorsports valve springs, Comp Cams pushrods, Russo Performance OTR, Mafless Tune by "Willall Racing" here in Adelaide Australia ... home of the origional "LS1 Edit" and "GenTT" twin turbo systems. All detailed and colour coded. X-Force polished 304 Stainless 1"3/4: 4 into 1 extractors, High flow cats, and 3" cat back exhaust.

Now pumping out a very healthy 420HP at the rear wheels

I'd trade if you had a 2010 Camaro!!! bitterly dissapointed that they're not doing them in right hand drive now. They were going to bring them to Aus ... but not now. We have an importer bringing them in and converting them ... and asking $145,000 for them!!!! yeah ... right!!!!

It sucks ... Holden did heaps of the development down here ... and you get them and we don't!!

Thanks!

Best VT-VE Commodore, all GM Day in Tanunda, The Barossa Valley in South Australia

Since then I've scored 4 more at the "All Commodore Day" in Adelaide
Top Factory VE
Top HSV VE (mine has HSV Compliance plates for factory mods)
Top 10 Overall (not 10 ... in the top 10)
1st Prize Sound Off Street Class (I have a 10" cadence wild beast and 700W Sony Amp ... and got 131dB)

You should be able to see shots of the day here:http://www.allcommodoreday.co.nr/ and http://www.carsofaustralia.com.au/ev...hp?details=443

No unfortunately ... I suspect it was going to be the new Monaro (GTO), but then the Camaro project took over and we were supposed to get that instead, BUT then GM filed chapter 11 and they killed the right hand drive version. Sad day. We developed it ... you got it!
