Re: Fast BA

Looks like a highly accurate glass body there, I wonder what they took the mould from? I've heard of hire cars being used but they don't hire XR8s do they?

Re: Fast BA

And that's a GT bodykit, not XR8. I doubt many people would hire GTs.

There are a couple of really nice looking BA Falcon speedway saloon cars cruising my local speedway track (Baypark in Tauranga). They look fantastic. I had a small chat with one of the guys involved with the Bayside Structural Engineering team about a month ago, he took the mould off his own XR8. It's a great looking car, and very competitve. I'll try to get some photos next time I'm at speedway.

Re: Fast BA

No that is the 2005 BA Mk3 prototype.
Apparantly someone whinged that HSVs were quicker on the 400m.

Re: Fast BA

Mike - you're right, there's not much GT-specific visible in the photo though.

LOL at flappist... I hope the handling is still okay though!
