hr front end commodore discs

if have heard from various sources that swapping the stub axles from left to right, right to left on a hr front end allows the fitment of HQ rotors, if this is the case i was wondering if commodore rotors would also fit, as they fit HQ's???. I am aware that VS-VY's wont fit without that vr conversion thingo, but maybe VL turbos'. Any thoughts?

Fuel figures

I see a lot of people ask about fuel figures on old V8's, so I thought I'd provide some info for those interested.

I happen to watch my fuel usage pretty regularly, so I can tell you that my 4.2 VC wagon slurps around 250-260Km/tank - which I believe works out to around 20litres/100Kms in todays terms - not exactly a fuel-miser.

Mind you, my old company car (VX 3.8) used to get me around 320Km in the city. It used to get better on the highway, but doesn't everyone?

Interesting, considering both have the same size fuel tank, and the VX has twenty years on the VC! Both were doing short trips around the city, between 5 and 45 minute hops.

aargh!

aargh. me car wont start! and ive parked in a 3 hour zone.

the dizzy was making loud noises this mourning. i also noticed that on occasions the tacho would jump to the noise so i thought perhaps the coil was earthing out or somthing. when i had parked, I took the dizzy cap off and had a look (i jiggled it while it was running. it came off accidentaly while running but the car just stopped. didnt think anything of it). everything seemed ok so i put it back on and turned her over to see if i had stopped the noise. Now the car will not start. I hope i havent busted somthing. i dont want a ticket!
