Also this joke of a comment by some moron @ Holden:

"Having (Commodore) police cars on the road is a good thing," says Elsworth. "Police drive cars that handle and perform on the limit. That's why they drive Commodores."


If that were the case only....trust me and I'm sure I'm not the only one to think so, they'd be driving in Falcons!!

Anyone can drive fast in a straight line. Talent is going around a corner.
A powerful engine does NOT make a good car!!

Totally agree marine1, The XR8 is THE car for on the limit handling!

Come on guys, at least admit that before these days, Falcons handled like crap. Commodores had been better. Now they should look to Ford for handling. Performance is very similar I guess with the 220kw Falcon vs 235kw Holden, no great advantage either way.

With the Povo pack Falcons and Commos ill agree that the Holdens for a long time have handled better, but the Tickfords have always had the upper hand against its closest opposite number.

Who even needed IRS to out handle Commo? - watts link rear end is superb for a live axle and better than a lot or IRS setups.

That's true, a car with a live rear axle CAN give better handling than a car with IRS, but Falcons used to handle like crap, compared to Commodore, the acceleration was not a crisp either. They drove like boats. I'm not saying that it is because it didnt have IRS or it didnt have a better diff ratio for more crisp acceleration. Thats just what you got, if you took the car for what it was. Remember when the engines made more noise than power, especially on a cold morning.

I drive different types of cars every day & the last time commodores had a handling advantage was with the VL's I know coppers (TOG coppers) when they got thier VNs insisted on thier VL's back!!!!!(but they didn't get 'em back)
