ff sticker rumours.

I have heard through rumours that if you put a fordforums.com sticker on your car it would increase your cars performance by 23.2%.

Is this true? Or infact, another rumour?

Incorrect rumour..

Correct figure is 32.5% increase at rear wheels..

So I've heard... but each red brake calliper decreases stopping distances by .6m, and each square centimetre of red paint increases power by 6.2%. However, this percentage can be diminished if the whole vehicle is red, but can be increased if tastefully matched with a contrasting colour (eg black).

So that would mean that the XR has... um... more power than before?

You guys are all on the wrong train. Gold badging increases performance by 40% and type R badging doubles rear wheel horsepower!

No more stickers for me for the time being. I'm still getting used to the 32.5% extra power that FM mentioned. Even one of my workmates noticed the extra power. Woo hoo!:s3

You can't see it but there is actually a little cobra snake behind the Type R, just like on the old XC (?) Cobras.

Because I haven't recieved any offers (except Kel) I am offering a discount of $30.00 to the first 8 customers, bringing the price down to a measly NZ$79.99!

Price excludes NZ$839.99 Post and Packaging
