Well that is not quite fair...

HSV have been established longer and have a name, FTE has only been around a short time it's abit 'low' to compaire the 2 now.

I think HSV are seeing FTE as a real threat now with the new engines coming and they are trying some scare tactics. And rightly so they should be worried!

But then again that is the kind of low down **** you expect out of Holden

It is a bit petty really.

But Tickford selling 99 cars? Aren't XRs classed as Tickfords as well?

HSV is established with how many years of marketing etc.

Whereas Tickford is still establishing itself in HSV market (FTE cars)

Tickfords main product is the XR8 isn't it? and it's competitor is the SS yes? So what are HSV on about?

Brendan: I think they are only reffering the 99 tickford cars sold as the T-series. The XR8 is tweaked by tickford but is still compared to the SS and the SS is not HSV. It still isn't fair I say and give the average joe wrong impression. I agree 100% what you said AlbertM, HSV shoukd be scared...

I love it, why?, because when they fall, it's going to be a long long way and when they carry on like that, they are setting themselves up for a very embarassing tumble, I can't wait!.

In response to Tim_EF_5.0


It can get worse...

Holden 15,090 points

FORD 12,633 points

However this is not a level playing field

Holden 20 cars
Ford 12 cars

The 2,457 points are made from these extra Holdens, now if it was level it would be Ford at the front.

What a load of crap, this is definitely scare tactics. Obviously HSV have heard the rumours and are genuinely worried about whats around the corner for Tickford, and so they should be, because when the AU3 T-SERIES is released (may as well call it that) they will be better than the HSV equivalents in ALL areas, not just suspension, tranny, grip and quality. They will have the power to go with it.
