Why BA is a winner!
Hey guys being a teenager, i get a lot of critism about what cars good and whats not. Im from a group of people, where im basically the only loyal ford fan, every likes holden. I always have stuck with ford, even known the lower model AUs werent much of a head turner (bar the XR series), falcons always had a soft spot in my heart. Constant bagging of ford, was on the agender everytime, me and my mates talked about cars. Some like jap imports including myself, i drive an FTO.
Since the release of BA photos the critism had actually stopped! Every holden friend of mine, dont talk about ford anymore! I bring up the topic how BA is not just an upgrade from the AU but its so different in many ways!
I let the biggest holden fan in my group look at motor magazine, how they were comparing the XR6T to the SS. He goes to me "you cant compare the SS to a turbo" i said fair enough, considering the price of the SS and Turbo, might be similar. I told him ok then how about the XU6 supercharged against the XR6. He shutup for a while then said that turbos are better than superchargers. I told him they bascially work in the same way, force air into the engine, but supercahrgers use the cranks etc, to spool up the charger, (tiny loss of power lost but more gained) turbos use exhuast gases. He then changed the subject again. I was having fun, i said fair enough, we'll compare the XR8 to the SS. He said fair enough. I said the XR8 is going to have a power output similar to an R8 or clubby! So its going to probably destroy the SS.
Well i am not really i biased person, competition just means holden and ford are going to try harder to build better cars. Its an advantage for us.
Im glad that ford have worked hard on the BA, not just changing the car cosmetically but mechanically as well. I can say im now very proud to be a ford fan, and will remain one for a long time coming.
Good work ford:)
