trying to decide wether or not i should throw all my handling out the window and get bags or nott......seeing that does NOT help the handling side of things......^^^^

hey guys, this is my VZ wagon, I am in the process of setting it up for handling ( hence not 20's) but also to look good, i am on my red Ps so trying to keep it all legal. But when i get off them i want to put a proper engine in it..

Looks awesome mate. Great car for your P's. Normally I wouldn't say the clubby kit but the clubby kitted wagons do look good imo. Otherwise just go the SS front bar.

Nice Wagz Man

Looks Like You Need To Get Your Guards Rolled In That Lower Rear Angle Pic Do they Scrub???

A Shaved Rear End Would Look Awsome On A Wagz With The PLate In The Rear Bar And A Slight Angle.

surprisingly they dont rub, but i will get them rolled, because when i get new shocks its going to sit lower. does anyone know where in sydney you can get them rolled? and a rough price?
cheers

well, Bilstein coilovers on the front would cost me around $1000 and the rear you cant put coilovers on, i would have to get an adjustable shock and new springs all around. but i have been thinking about it. its still an option for me, just depends on how much cash i can get.

lol same wheels as mine just different colour,

personally dont go clubby kit unless you get a genuine plastic one, try to avoid fiberglass, personally i just dont like it, they never line up right, they crack harder to prep and paint etc etc,


wagons handle rather well, ive just got monroe gt sport front struts and kings superlows, rear is sitting on the factory superlift air shocks and sedan superlows,

when i went to oran park a fair few guys asked what i was running and complimented me cars cause it stayed pretty flat and handled well around the track


also i wouldnt worry about rolling the guards, mine a tad lower than yours and it dosnt rub, theres plenty of clearance

yeh, i have wider tyres on mine though i think. they look as though they would easily hit if it compressed down that far. i guess i will soon find out.
yeh wagons do handle well, i absolutely love it. i just wish it was a manual :(
