Hey guys fullboost just updated with Dave's XF at Calder, it says:

Re: UPDATE!!!!!! Dave's XF Turbo at Calder Park

Would have been better if he left the front on - I hate it when people do that, street car is street car - you run in street trim not half pulled apart, engineer properly to run with everything on for christs sake.
Headlight out fair enough, but not half the front of the car.

I have finished ranting now thankyou for your patience.

Bloody quick and great engine bay though.

I did put something here, but it vanshied, I think

Re: UPDATE!!!!!! Dave's XF Turbo at Calder Park

It is all about running the fastest time.

What about when cars run slicks.
They are not street tyres.

Enough of my ranting, it is still an unbelievable car that anyone of us would love to own.

Re: UPDATE!!!!!! Dave's XF Turbo at Calder Park

that looks kind of scary but at the same time a piece of shit having half the front missing different rims and all but i suppose it might just be cause i have seen it all in one piece in show condition and all but that isn't a bad time how much better could he have gone with out a slipping clutch and haw much more psi can he pump out
