Might cost a little more, but what a weapon that car will be.
Thats what they said about the 6 speed, but in standard form the XR6 T whoops it, however when they are edited the Typhoon becomes a real performance car.
As for the clutch issue what a fu#*&ing joke here we are 3 months later and still getting the "In another 2 weeks" crap, Flinty told me that 2 months ago. I don't think they are going to find any fix for a twin plate because of the harmonic vibration problem. Come on Flinty, throw the entire "comfortable and easy to drive twin plate" crap idea in the bin and give us some real clutches, you know the ones that never fail and hurt your left leg after you've been in traffic more than an hour. I don't think too many women are going to buy theses cars anyway. Personally after 3 months, loyal Ford supporter or not (I've bought 2 more new Fords since the Typhoon clutch failed), I am at the point where I'm going to wait till Friday next (8th) and then hand the whole thing over to my solicitor for some compensation. My legal advice is that getting some financial compensation will be like taking candy from a baby and I reckon 3 months is long enough for any person to wait. Just give us a clutch David please.
