It's interesting to read the opinions of performance car fans who aren't Ford biased.

Sounds like the turbo boys are really eager for the Turbo XR6.

Good Stuff.

Interesting to read about Mr Qik who has broken two gearboxes in 5 weeks in his Pursuit 250!

Ricers. They are scared of the Forte.

Their little POS Civics are going to be blown away by a Falcon Taxi running BBQ fuel.

Far out, these guys love there Turbos. If In the post I was reading, there was a Quad OHC 5.4L... Now, that's a toy I would like to Tinker With!!!!!!!!!

Also, even though I reckon the TRB 6 is going to be a kik ass car, I hate to see it being called "The Next VL Turbo". The VL is Jap powered, and in almost every case, comes with a complementary Bad Attitude for the driver.

I'd like to see the XR6 as a display of what the Aussie 6 shoukld have done quite a few years ago!

Well done Blue Oval Boys!
