BA II Wants (3FB Talk)

Righto Guys,

Amongst us 3FB guys, what would you like to see in the BAII thats going to be released around September. I'd thought i'd kick in a discussion and get the Boardroom going once again, as it's been very quiet.

Well i'll go first, i'd like to see a slight power upgrade in the XR8, 3.45:1 diff ratio in the manual and 20% stiffer front springs to balance the weight of the Boss engine.

Cheers,
Gary.

I'd like to see a 6 speed (manual and auto) in the GT and XR8, adjustable shocks in the GT more power but more importantly more torque in the GT.

Re: BA II Wants (3FB Talk)

Here are my thoughts on what some people might wish for:

JR: F@rk the BAII, I'll have a carbon fibre turbo Territory!
Jamie XR6: Automated camembert dispenser.
Blurter: Strengthened exoskeleton to fight off those utes who think they are can openers.
Strider: Meguiar's Patented Forcefield™
Slim Darky: I'll have what Strider's having...in Venom.
XH: Bugger the BAII, I'll build it myself!
Bluedriver: Where's the 20" wheels option?
Falkeen: Personal Digital Assistant built into the ICC to keep track of all those 21sts to go to.
XR6HP01: Must have a Venom option to keep Team Venom alive.

And last but not least...

Slothy: Factory Filth Pack™ so it's easy to keep the car in original condition.

Lol@slothy's post!

Actually, I'll stick with the AUII for now! Seriously though, (never thought I'd say that in a 3FB forum), the damn thing needs to lose the lard ass.

Re: BA II Wants (3FB Talk)

LOL slothy, funny stuff.

Provided I can afford it, I'm hoping to change ships asap after BA2 hits the streets.
Since I probably can't afford to run the V8 I'll be in a six again, probably XT/XR because I want a manual. Final decision will depend on cost of options and what is on the lot at the time. I am now very disinclined to order a car thanks to the knowledge I have gained from the Forum.

What is a must for me, a drive line without shunts and a gearbox/clutch combo without all the problems I've had in the AU. I don't need more power while I can still stay in front of Slim Darkie and the Bluedriver/Strider mobiles are only a couple of minutes up the road.

Re: BA II Wants (3FB Talk)

Oh more classics from the Slothy LOL.
Blurter come on only a couple of minutes up the road ? Thats while me and Strider are idling.
Obviously BA needs less weight,power up and down power windows,290 option for XR8,more power GT/GTP,nicer wing for GT/GTP,more aggresive body kit imo,more wheel options for XR6/8 and wider than 8" and nicer wheels than current GTP and why not 20's seeing you mentioned it Slothy.

Importantly to any 3fb purchases Sat Nav so you Subway/KFC/Maccas lovers can find decent eateries in the future. Bet you like that one Blurter

Are you kidding Maurice, that lot would have over rides on the Sat Nav so that they only located Subway/KFC/Maccas establishments
