    Their website states they are capable of many things. Bernie Quinn's post also elaborates on what they do - the bulk of it being with OEMs.

    With regards specifically to the aftermarket that is what Dave was referring to. I misunderstood what Dave was asking and I think Bricktop did as well?
    “…The lies (Western slander) which well-meaning zeal has heaped round this man are disgraceful to ourselves only…How one man single-handedly, could weld warring tribes and wandering Bedouins into a most powerful and civilized nation in less than two decades….A silent great soul, one of that who cannot but be earnest. He was to kindle the world; the world’s Maker had ordered so." - Thomas Carlyle

    i've misread your original post then. I interpreted it as what we can do to improve the cars handling in response to some journalists criticisms. That's clearly not what you meant by the "give me a break" bit. In that regard I will let Bernie respond to that question

    Yeah sorry Bricktop I was referring to aftermarket 'packages' that Premcar could offer.

    Hello and Welcome Bernie. Nice to see you here.


    The race car I believe has evolved from when it was first rolled out.

    Look forward to hearing more about this in the coming months and rest assured we will promote that news through our social media outlets as well.
    I always like hearing of ongoing premcar involvement with companies both here and abroad.

    I too personally favour what was muted under PPP but personally I wouldn’t like to see this get in the way of official relationships with companies like Ford.
    Its really heartening to hear that there is an ongoing relationship between Ford Australia and yourselves.
    It would be a dream come true if that relationship extended into fords future product in this country.
    Personally that would be my preference, a new version of FPV.

    Prodrive did say that they might consider a return one day if opportunities presented so I live in hope.
    I don’t like the idea of HSV being the sole enhancement player at this particular level of product development.
    I see premcar as the ford walkingshaw, just better.

    Maybe one day the right business case will again present itself. That would be my wish.
    History is a statement, the future is a question.

    Good question. We are looking at it, and we are offering the package deal with the ex-cop XR6T's, but most of our work is with manufacturers like Ford at the moment.

    Hi Road warrior. We recommend and fit Shockworks adjustable spring and damper packages for those who are willing to pay a little extra. We have a good relationship with Brett from Shockworks and have fitted a number of cars with the Shockworks kits on his behalf. If you're interested, you can contact http://www.shockworks.com.au/
