XRs rule I will probably have one for my next car but they aren't really all that impressive speed wise really when you compare them to a lot of modified cars out there. I think what he means has anyone gone of their head modifying an XR which I know a few of you have such as Laminges old beast.

My clevo gets 28.5L per 100ks & doesn't even have a fan let alone AC
But then my car is a toy not a "real car"

I dunno.. the XA has climate control... wind down the windows and the climate inside is the same as outside!
Cruise control = right foot and cars with red and blue party lights ...
As for the milage.... I havent tried a milage run as the bloody fool guage doesnt work but I got 200+ k's on 1/2 a tank on a 35 degree day (pinged its guts out so I wasn't game to thrash it !)

I will be very interested in how AP's machine goes once its run in and dynoed.

Mr Jucy's rig sounds like a weapon, Minges old car, AP's XR8 and Grunters XR would have to be the quickest on this forum. However I remember Kelli talking about an EB IL6 that flows a decent amount of nitro through it's veins (too much as she blew at calder a few months back) do I remember right that it ran 12's?

No I know what you meen but I don't think some of the others do. But I've been told by other people that my car isn't a real car because it to modified & what ever but I don't care i love it & love the power. I love cars that are full on but its not for everyone I don't think I could ever own a standard car.
