Hi guys I dont like to enhance P Platers into speeding or hooning but since i have a soon to be 18yr old and upon some investigation and calculations you will find that in Victoria the price of Vt-Vx Calais superchargers will be on the rise as this vehicle is one of very very few performance vehicle that is still legal under the Power to Weight ratio for P platers to drive! Any thoughts and has anyone done their homework on this matter cheers

An S/C 6 is very much legal to drive in Victoria for P platers.. But you know that..

What would you like to know or discuss exactly?

Nothing :'(
As for prices going up, they're not really. Seeing as the VE just came out I'm guessing they would be a little less than when I baught mine. You'll be able to find VT-VX s/c calais for anywhere between about 11,000 and 16,000

it was just a quote and getting other members thoughts.
One thing I wasn't quite sure of is if this model is still legal after the new regulations come into play July 1st.

Get in the ute
I was under the impression that with the new laws coming in (if you get your P's AFTER July '07)

you won't be able to drive
- anything boosted (unless it's a proven factory slug)
- anything with a decent amount of cylinders (8+)
- anything that has an engine modified in such a way to increase power from the original manufacturer (extractors, zorst, heads, cam, etc)...
- anything in a nominated list of high powered 6 cyl engines....

which means, if any car would be sought after, it would be greenfoam's old unopened remarkably fast VN!

P Plates?

What If?? You lost your full license (completely) and had to start again? would the restrictions relate to you? It wouldn't be good if you already owned a over powered beast and wanted to return to normal after you got it back!!:ranting: :bang:

Well from the governments perspective you shouldnt be driving such a vehicle anyway in your probationary period after you lost your license for bein an idiot in it.
