The article says the car is not tubbed (pristine Fairmont with genuine 75000klms) and runs 8.5" Bridgestones on Convoy Pro rims. These are obviously for the street in light of your comments.
Does anybody know what size slicks it runs at the track?
This is a mighty impressive car but the article says its hardly street friendly with 4.33 gears and 5500rpm converter. (BBE Automatics built the C10, FYI Brenx)
Other XD / XE's worthy of note are:-
VIC Dion Amato XE ESP 351 10.89 @ 129 on street tyres & full exhaust!
TAS Dean Rowe XD 351 10.72 @ 128
WA Ryan Moresby XD 351 11.05 @ 119
The last 3 cars are only 351 not 383. Go the XD's!!!!!!!!
