    Hi Everyone,

    This is my new 2000 VX clubsport R8 Clubsport 6 speed build no. #366 out of 480 - Manuals I believe.

    Mods are

    Cam upgrade ( Very Lumpy )
    Maffless tune
    Titanium retainers
    Moly Rods
    Extractors in to a 3inch system

    Will be getting an OTR soon. No power figures as of yet. Hoping to get 260-280 rwkw.

    Car is orginal Storm Grey in colour.

    I am very happy with the car and looking at keeping this one parked in the garage with a cover and drive my daily to work.

    Hope you guys like it. - The wheels dont really suit it - I will be getting 20s GTS rims or similar. Also needs lowering in the rear :)

    lookin' good.

    What's with the random extra HSV badge in the middle of the boot though, looks a bit out of place :)

    Don't forget to get the toe link done unless the previous owner has already done it.

    Agree on the wheels, bit cheap looking for mine.

    VT-VX series 1 had some rear suspension issues that were revised in the series 2. The problem presents when the rear tyres scrub out, I believe (someone will correct me if wrong) that when you lower the rear it exacerbates the issue.

    this should give you an idea. Yeah that HSV badge is from somewhere else (see this pic for what the rear is supposed to look like http://forums.justcommodores.com.au/attachment.php?attachmentid=159742&d=1365948008 )
