AU II XR8 vs Blown VT

Good mate has a grudge match coming up, AUII XR8 ute stock apart from twin system vs. a supercharged V6 VT sedan, totally stock. Best of 3 quarter mile passes. Who's gonna win???? Try and pick it and I'll let you know after the weekend.

Anyone got a nitrous set up for the XR you'd like to rent out....,ha ha.

I'd put my money on the Falcon. Supercharged V6's couldn't pull a drunken sailor off your sister.

It will be close, my bet is the XR8 by about .3 of a second (based on factory times).

Not that I am biased or anything :), but your mates ute will be OK. Should be a few tenths quicker than the VT, maybe half a second if the VT is a heavy series I...

Is the ute an auto as well?

Re: AU II XR8 vs Blown VT

An XR8 and the lighter body of the ute it should do it without too much stress. So long as he can get traction.

Re: AU II XR8 vs Blown VT

Sorry, the ute is a manual. Factory rims and rubber. You're right casper the fat and soft assed VT will probably have better traction.

Re: AU II XR8 vs Blown VT

Might be worth putting a couple of bags of cement over the rear axle for traction : )

Some good clean shifts and he will smoke that VT...
