130kmh...UPWARDS! :p, have you had your tyres balanced and/or aligned recently?

Yea, get your wheels balanced and you should be able to take it well past 200, when you hit around 180-200 you'll find your vehicle should get a LOT more responsive, handles better and grips better.

andyman, i'm not saying to do that on a public road, but if you do take a VY or VZ (Supercharged 6 or SS) up at those speeds they become more responsive. Maybe the rear spoiler that was on the vehicles might've done a little bit too to lower the rear ends at those speeds?

swap the front and back wheels, then youll see if it's wheel related. Fixed the vibrations on my car:p

Somehow I doubt that Holden tested their spoiler in a wind tunnel. Sure, it may have some sort of aerodynamic effect at high speed but that could also be a negative effect.
