XR6 Turbo beats 6.0 Maloo 297Kw

Interesting on website of drive.com was the Hot Lap results. Watching the videos the XR6 turbo was approx. a second quicker and that was on wet track and a trip through the mud compared to a dry run for the Maloo. Horses for courses i know but I would like to see the test done with a typhoon and a GT or pursuit.

Re: XR6 Turbo beats 6.0 Maloo 297Kw

I think the timed lap is differnt to the one they show, a car holding tight lines and good corner speed isn't quite as good looking as it sideways with smoke pouring off the tyres now is it, think ratings...

You're right 240 T - the official timed lap isn't the one they show on telly.

I read a quote somewhere (i cant remember where though) 'Horsepower sells cars, but Torque wins races'. I reckon that applies here. imagine if it was a Typhoon
