TE50 times and saw a Pursuit Ute
Looking at the Wheels times for the TE, it gets 0-100 in 6.1 by them, but has a gear change at 99km/h, after only taking 4.3 sec to get to 80!
So from 80 to 100 takes 1.8 s.
So surely if you slammed that gear change better, or took off the rev limiter youd pick up another .3 or so.
Its obviously a very quick car
Thats something else to think about!!
Yesterday i was at the Holden Lang Lang proving grounds, where i saw, of course monaros, but also that excellent Pursuit ute and a blue TS50. I even sat in the Ute!!, very nice indeed. The keys were even in it!!!
I couldnt up the courage though to start it :(
The v8 looks so small though, compared to a straight 6 I think. Its a very compact engine obviously.
lets get sideways!!!
