Dark Twin sends V8 Holden packing

Having my xr6 out of action has been pretty upsetting the past coulpe weeks... So my best mate came round tonight in the evil dark twin(Black XR) so we could check out the new Bond movie..

Anyhow on the way home we pull up at the lights ... A VS UTE stops next to us... He starts reving and with some visual and acoustic inspection, it soon becomes obvious that this is a v8 ute with a few mods(total extent unknown)...

Not too fussed by the comotion, we ignore it... At least *I* did hehehe.. My mate and I are pretty conservative on the road... Yet the fire was obviously burning in his veins this time round... With the v8 getting ready to roar, the lights go green, holden spins up, and to my suprise I find that we are being launched also... The noise being produced by the car next to us was ear peircing and I am thinking its over before it started... To my absolute suprise the XR had a better top end mowing mr Holden down(quickly i might add) and spanking him silly. To make things more humiliating we were in an auto. All the guy could say was ' Gezez those XRs are fast ' .

I really had no idea what the XR's were capable of, as I avoid this sort of situation.. However this was not the outcome I expected. AU XR is pretty darn swift for a 6. I might add neither of us have touched our cars performance wise.

I had to share ma story with ya... Another rant for you to put up with ! ;p

The 8s are no slouch either.... I was in one with only the zorsts and management done, and in no time, we were hurtling along at 210 km/h.


*disclaimer: speeding is bad, Mmmm'Kay.

New Bond wasnt too bad actually.. Prolly the best of all the PB Bond movies..

I think the Aston Martin is the reason my friend was so fired up.... Bond really does give it a whirl in the movie :)
