Hold Ya Horses!!!
Being the huge ford fan i am, i have been beaming lately at the introdcution of the new fords etc especially the XR6-t>>>
Anyways just a few points...
1. Everyone got all worked up about the XR6-T saying it would wipe the floor with the new SS.... yes it handles better, yes it is a better package but guess what? it's still slower over the quarter!!!!
2. New GTs etc.....as if the new clubsports etc wont be fu**ing outrageous. Yes on a power basis it appears at the first that ford has a what, 30kw advantage (ie new CLubbie 270, GT 290/300)?
What about the respective weights of the 2 cars?
3. Just read on one of these posts that HSV is going to bring out some 98 litre 10,000kw beast or whatever. That will be the new flagship for HSV... Fords flagship wont out number that (ie GT-p).
So that leaves us in the same position
The man in the street who drivesan XT falcon would like to sleep at night knowing that what his car is trying to be is better than what the dude in the commy next to him is trying to be...
SO WHAT IM TRYING TO SAY IS: FORD SHOULD HAVE COMPLETE DOMINANCE OVER EVERY MODEL v MODEL COMPARO..... IF THEY CANT MATCH SOMETHING HSV BRINGS OUT, THEN THEY WIll FAIL..
AND finally Skaife and HRT will continue to dominate the V8 series forever until more money is spent on racing development. HRT simply has the best (even if only marginally) of everything; driver, car, manager, crew, etc which i believe is probably the overlooked fact by ford marketing. See bathurst yesterday? see every round of the V8 supercar series? HOLDEN HOLDEN HOLDEN
It sucks but hey
