  1. [and they're coming the other way]... wave!



    Long story short: the XR8 highway patrol cars stall after a quick U-turn, and can't be started immediately afterwards.

    Apparently the alternators can't handle all the magical cop gear that they use these days [12v coffee machine and donut conveyor?] - and it gets to crisis point during a spirited U-turn.

    BTW, if any police are reading this, I think you do a great job and I hope you get your SS highway patrol cars soon. Mind you, if the commissioner knew his Bathurst history, you'd have GTR Skylines; but that's another story altogether.

  3. Heh, I accidentally wheelied past an oncoming cop car yesterday. Dopey bugger I am. Perhaps this explains how I got away... Or perhaps it was the heavy traffic I split through.

    Or perhaps they had real criminals to catch instead of happy hooligans...


    ....NAH!

  4. I reckon they should go back to 360 Chargers. :LOL: The GTR's wouldn't be near as fast with all the cop gear bolted in.
    Seriously, how hard would it be to bolt another alternator in there? I mean, they modify them enough as it is.
    I am not a Holden fan, but teh Monaro would fit the bill a lot better than anything else made locally, and then maybe teh public could buy base model Monaros at auctions for a realistic price. ( I still think Holden should offer an Executive trim Monaro with the V6, the market is there).

    Regards, Andrew.

  5. Then the police would be as popular as Jimmy was :grin: what with actually catching up with speeders and whatnot.

  7. One of the coolest things I've ever seen on the highway was a highway patrol Falcon pulling out and flooring after a speeding van next to my sister's Mirage, didn't even drop behind us at 110kmh, freakin' crazy.

    Just glad it wasn't one of the buggered XR8s (it was a Turbo)

    Oh, and VE SS > every Falcon
