Re: 252.2rwkw stock GT

Just a note on the dyno. I DO think it was optimistic but that wasn't the point of the whole day.
The cars were all dynoed at the same place and time so the results are comparable.
It was very interesting to see the difference in cars that were for all intensive purposes the same.

Even though we turned turned up late, yes it was a good day !

Re: 252.2rwkw stock GT

the dyno is calibrated against APS ... for obvious reasons down the track :) ... and the shoot-out mode gets rid of most of the atmospheric variables taken from a weather station ... but yeah

that wasn't what it was all about ... just rolling these cars on the dyno ...roll them off and then roll another one on ..etc etc ...

we actually had a bit of trouble getting ahold of a good number of V8s .... maybe there was fear in the air (j/k)

I sense a formal challenge in the air ...hmmm


how about (and we are talking stock cars only with about 10000ks running on the recommended fuel - cars in sedan form)

3 auto XR8s, 3 manual XR8s
3 auto GTs, 3 manual GTs
3 auto XRTs, 3 manual XRTs

in Melbourne on a Saturday and the cars will be checked for mods etc ...

what do you reckon xa-coupe?
