Whats there to tune or drive on the road, as you posted a lil while back to having a defect notice on the car and no rego. Regency defect inspections dont like camsAs I said, you're clutching at straws making comments about the tune of my car, when you have no idea the tune of it...First it's the gearbox ratios and my diff gearing, now the tune
What you posted ^^^^ above is absolutely nonsense @ fake bs news @ nothing relevant with this post discussion or any known true events.So what I'd suggest is, you arrange a time to come over, tune my car and let me know the gearbox ratios and diff gearing, so your advise is proven to be true and what I say is a myth....
Oh and I'd also like to know when you have been driving my car to make these assumptions, because I haven't been around when it occurs
You have my style of impulseAbout 15 years ago I looked at a VT SS sedan for $4.5K with very bad clear coat peeling and I passed. Ended up getting a ZX-6R.

How hard is it to use a timing light on a carby 6cyl, how hard is it to recon a carby, how hard is it to adjust valve train and set cam in and set the idle and fast idle with auto/manual choke, how hard is it to set the spark plugs @ a child can do it, nothing complex, its not rocket science.
Diff and geabox ratios determine how the power output of engine/cam is delivered and put down on the road and the driving attributes of the combo, no straws are harmed in the process, just personal choices on what gearbox/diff are used. Obviously the TUNE will affect the delivery in conjunction with the chosen ratios, known as cause n affect.
Low diff ratios used with a cam are not good matches from all the well documented facts have already proven.

10 to 20 years in the future
All the "Car guys" will be lusting over VAG's with fart tunes, or some electric car that pulls 11's of the factory floor
The problem with the old V8 platform is, the kids aren't lusting after them now
V8 commodore and falcons are viewed by the youth as bogan cars for old guys, what they want is Euro fart boxes, which actually out perform most Aussie V8's
They are not brought up watching Bathurst, or going to Holden car shows, if they are into cars it's the Euro and JDM scene
Old V8 Commodores aren't fashionable, 4x4, Euro, electric and hybrid are what's hip
Sure there will be a few classic cars that someone wants in 20 or 20 years because "my grandfather had one"
As for the price people are asking, they don't seem to be moving, or they get pulled, then readvertised a while later
Cultures change whether your ready for it or want it
****Controversial comment incoming****It used to be Commodore drivers that were the idiots, now it’s Hilux, ranger and the like that are the idiots on the road.

Correct. State governments did a pretty good job of destroying the local car industry by making it illegal to do basically anything at all on public roads in a sedan.
All the dickheads moved to 4x4s as a consequence so they can go be dickheads off road where they can’t be harassed by the boys in blue.
Just have a look at the BS they get up to on the beaches on Fraser Island. If that was anywhere on public roads they would have a million police cars there by lunchtime shutting it all down but because it’s “just a beach” they can carry on being dickheads without persecution!
Yeah, there was a lot of dodgy shite happening especially with car mods but a lot of it back then was purely because younger kids didn’t have the money so would get the old Ryobi out to chop springs or chop the muffler out.The old Commodore/Falcon car scene was it's own worse enemy, chopped springs, obnoxiously loud exhausts, kids doing skids everywhere, lots of crashes, stickers covering every spare bit of glass, fully modified race cars with numer plates, it was a disaster waiting to happen
And people wondered why they were targeted
As for the 4be brigade, one of the young guys at work spent a fortune on doing up his "truck" over covid, one of the things he spent a huge amount of coin on was massive rims and mud tyres that stuck out past his guards by about 25mm, he was defected for them not ago, he is now back to his his stock wheels and tyres
The funny thing is he doesn't actually do alot of 4 wheel driving, and he uses the thing as a commuter
So what he actually built was a big fat "truck" that handled like **** on the road, was illegal, had less power and drank fuel like a champion
So much like cars from the "old car scene" we loved so much
