The problem with the herrod ute was at the time of testing the limiter has been set to the ford default of 5500rpm, but the Herrod ute could rev out till 6800rpm, since the test they have re-calibrated the no go zone. They said the engine just comes on song at 5500 so ultimately you want redline to be 6100rpm something.
Then we'll see how fast the herrod ute really is, i think the ute doesn't need a shorter diff.
250kw out of that ute, if unleashed should be lineball with clubbie ute
