Re: XR6T in Targa

The report on Targa was the highlight of that issue.

Funny, that Quinn found it hard to pass a limping STOCK XR6 Turbo.

Re: XR6T in Targa

I took interest in the brake pedal problems they had with the Brembos. But that's to take away from a great effort.

Re: XR6T in Targa

I found it a great effort, with all the problems they had they still managed to bring some highlights. My favourite was passing the R34 GTR heheheh David vs Godzilla (j/k so don't bother flaming me). Job well done to Ford and Herrods and to all the crew!!

Re: XR6T in Targa

Yes.. A very impressive effort. Perhaps we could see one of these cars in a future upgrade?? Say BA2 or BA3?
Be a perfect place to test new gear on a car.

Re: XR6T in Targa

It was a great read....I particularly liked the quote, "One glorious stage cleared up any doubts we might have had about the XR6T's legitimacy as a sports sedan. Now we have none. Two parts failed. Neither of them made it into the production car. And both would have been changed had there been more preparation time."

That sums up the quality product Ford have produced. Good work guys.
