    Very nice install! What are the full specs of your system? Are you using the factory head?

    yep we were in test mode....clutch sticks to the floor on the VE V8s when given some stick..common fault

    myself along with drew(black sv8) were testing some different things for John @ Street Quick Performance and Dan @ Chipmaster

    47degree track temps and 18knot head wind werent exactly fast time producing conditions.
    the assholes closed the drags early just as it was cooling down! :bang:


    ur car auto or manual?
    and were u running streets or stock tyres?

    its manual and stock tires at full pressure still (whats the difference between street and stock tyres?). how much do you think better temps are worth? yeah they did close it early not many people there tho which was good and probably why they closed early.

    better temps should drop the times by about .3s off the ET

    no difference between the stock tyres are the ones on the car and "streets" are MT Streets...softer more grip and usually put on smaller rim size...massive side wall for flex and usually run them at 22psi..

    not entirely sure to be honest

    its a new clutch, braided lines, modification to return valve, modification/different model slave cylinder, etc etc

    Nice six potters you got there.

    Do you know for certain that they fit behind the new rims? I know a lot of HSV owners have had problems with 9.5 and 10 inch non-standard rear wheels fitting over the brakes due to the offset.

    the brakes fit the SS 18" and SSV 19" OEM rims so these new rims are supposed to have same clearance and X factor as them....only putting them on will confirm it

    the rear AP rotors were bigger than the stock fronts! :eek:
    these pics with the 19" SSV rims really dont do the brakes justice...but damn do the stop...absolutely love them and finally the weak point of the SSV is no longer :yahoo:

    and my favourite image from the cam install thanks to jnr :bow:

    Very nice Deano! Can't wait to see the new rims on it. Decent brakes work wonders for drivability I reckon and those AP Racing ones are no doubt even better than my Brembo (aka HSV) brakes.

    I spoke to Sonny from Marrano's in Sydney today... Looking at just over $4,200 drive in - drive out for cam, valve springs, OTRCAI and tune. Once I have that done, I'll get a small chrome sticker made up that fits neatly under the 307 on the boot lid: "rwkw" :D
