    VE S2 SSV Redline Wagon
    Been on the site for a while now so I figure it's about time I made one of these. Here's my 2010 VE II SSV Redline Sportwagon. Still a long way from finished but it's blast on the road and track. More photos to come.


    Engine and Transmission:
    • 1 7/8 4-1 Ceramic Coated Hurricane Headers
    • Stainless 3" Manta Catback with Centre Muffler (Cheers NAAF!)
    • OTR
    • Rip shifter
    Power: 270rwkw (Hi-Torque Performance Gold Coast)

    Suspension:
    • MCA Street Performance Coilovers
    • 10kg F/R Springs
    Brakes:
    • Brembo 4 piston calipers, factory front and CTSV rear
    • DBA 4000 rotors, T3 front
    • Bremtec Evolve pads
    • Braided lines
    Wheels and Tyres:
    • 20x10" Koya SF07 in Gloss GTR Grey
    • Offsets +35mm front, +40mm rear
    • Michelin PS4S 275/30r20 all round
    • All guards rolled (Precision Guard Rolling)
    Coming soon... eventually... maybe...
    • Lower
    • Diff gears
    • Cam
    • Clutch (if needed)
    • Interior gauges
    • Exterior chrome wrapped black/grey
    • VFII HSV taillights
    • Number plate

    Would like to go a bit lower but I'm occasionally scraping on the work driveway at this height. Need to look at re-fitting the headers/cats better if possible. Either that or get some air cups for the coilovers.

    Got some nice shots from the last Queensland Raceway track day. Best time was a 1:03.7 on the sprint circuit. Was able to keep up with quite a few cars including an LS1 BMW and a VF GTS.

    Lots of body roll even with stiffened coilover damping so I'm getting some superpro sway bars for next time.

    Damaged the cat flange due to exhaust hanging too low. If the repair weld gives me some more clearance I might try lowering the front again. Would be nice if it looked like that all the time, not just under heavy braking...

    I'd definitely get the sway bars in, I did control + caster arms, front and rear sway bars and adjustable links, all superpro, you'll straight away feel the difference.
