Calder Park BA GT 13.7

Club member recorded a 13.7 1/4 mile on Friday night

Stock as a rock, manual of course

14.096 with traction contorl on
13.74 with traction control off

Seems the GT have quite a sting

Cheers

Re: Calder Park BA GT 13.7

Sound's good, we all knew they were good for 13's,now he just need's some minor bolt on's and a tune and hopefully we can get the 1st Aussie Boss n/a into the 11's/12's,just like the LSI boy's,some good competition coming up I think.

Re: Calder Park BA GT 13.7

Gee, thats lovely to hear.
Based on the likely 'real' figures that the 285kw VY2 should get (not the figures HSV claim) we have two seriously fast Aussie Muscle cars!!!!

Re: Calder Park BA GT 13.7

Would be interesting to see what mods (if any) and how many km's were racked up on the car.

A good result and looking foreward to seeing how other owners go down the strip.
