Re: wheels times for typhoon
If you read under the title "Calder-What a Drag" in the Wheels article it talks about how a build up of rubber from a recent drag meet killed any meaningful standing-start attempts, with the times quoted by Night-Lurker...
When you think about it though, if what they are saying is correct (about the rubber on Calder, etc), it would punish the F6's 0-100 time the most because of its huge amount of torque (and its difficulty to get a clean, quick launch)
What they also mention is the in-gear acceleration for all 3 cars, as follows
3rd / 4th / 5th / 6th
F6 3.8 / 4.7 / 6.6 / 9.6
GT 4.2 / 6.0 / 7.5 / 11.4
HSV 4.0 / 5.7 / 7.5 / 12.8
Its starting to get annoying to wait for realistic times for the F6, but they WILL come. If people have been spectulating that the 6.0L HSV can do 0-100 in 5.2 sec (and wheels only manage 6 sec), then the times for the F6 should be pretty good. Hopefully the next Motor will bring some good news...
