When Ford releases the forced-XR6, again, the supercharged S will struggle to keep up, even in HSV Xu-6 guise. LS1 (LS6?) vs 5.4l quad cam will be another story again.
was with my brother when he raced genIII auto in his stock auto XR8,4 times different situation,the same story.I know it's hard to believe,the XR8 series one is actually faster till 90kh in a 60 zone.
Manual SS genIII are bad!they start pulling from behind at the end of second shift.
ran a supercharged v6 commodore,they actually faster than the SS till 60,door to door and then they feel like the charger is out of puffs,and the XR starts to make grounds.
HSV 255,forget it,leave them to T3s.But I'm so sure 220kw xr will walk them real nice.
In brisbane, an XR6 VCT:feels like a v8,give you a hard time till the end.100% faster than supercharged commodores.
And at street race,you don't go and deflate your tyres to 15 psi,you can't warm up the tyres and spin,you don't say to the guy next to you,can you wait till I get rid of pas. seats and the spare tyre?and maybe empty the tank because I just filled it yesterday??you don't do that and that's why most cars are actually slower on real life.
