Pointless comments on LS1.com

Just reading through that thread that started about the XR8 beating the SS. There are so may pointless comments in there its not funny.

A couple of examples:

If it is stock, then no. Take a look at the T series numbers - they've been running 200kW+ motors for a lot longer than the XR8.
What the hell is this supposed to mean??? Why does it matter that the T series had that engine first.

BTW The Fords need the sprint to 170 cause its pretty much over after that (180sumfin??).. Gotta love them speed limiters.. LOL
Does he think that this is bagging the falcon??? Quick sprints is what it is all about.

Anyway, I've had my rant for now.

Do I really have to write something funny in here?

Speed Limiters? I don't think the T Series or XR's have speed limiters so thats a pretty stupid comment. This person obviously only races 6 cylinder Fortes.:D

Yeah i think so, AU XR8's Series 1go to 240km/h. Series 2's will go quicker, if they want proof ask Laminge about speed limiters. :CraZ: :CraZ: :CraZ:

Simple. All things being equal, if it is a stock 200kW XR8 vs a 225kW SS then the SS will win. The reason I made that point was that the numbers generated by the T series cars (back when the XR8 had 185kW) sohuld give you an idea of the 200kW XR8. Nothing more complex than that.

Weight comes to play here. However, let's look forward 220 XR8 is a significantly better package. Even more so than 20kW would suggest.

Hobbes the cubic inch advantage of the Gen 3 will always be tough to overcome by the 5.0 Ford even tho the Kw's are similar.It's not bad going that we are as close or as quick as this.
