The Race - Results
Well, I am sorry to say we had two races first race i f&^ked my 2nd to 3rd change and got whipped. Next and final race we both cracked hard of the mark first gear the XR was mostly wheel spin but neck and neck, smacked second and i was half a bonnet in front, third (this change is ****ed with these boxes) he had half a bonnet on me, 4th we backed of half way through and the R8 had half a bonnet on me!
I must admit i am dissapointed yet very impressed with the standard R8 6L they go well, i can usually tell when i race even though gear changes are pretty shitty in the 5spd when muy car has more grunt (cause it will pull away) however this did not happen.
I am not making any excuses this R8 had the 6spd with the quick shift and it went really well considering i dont think they come with extractors or decent exahaust. Even if my shift was better i might have won by a bonnet i dont think that is good enough!
I know that autos in the XR's are much quicker and maybe the new 6spd XR's will be alot better then the current 5spds you would think i would be able to put a little distance betweem myself and the R8.
Tom (dissapointed considering APS3 (maybe blowing gearbox or diff) or new 6L commodore)
