Re: wheels times for typhoon
To put it into perspective here are the in gear times:
3rd-3.8sec 4th- 4.7sec 5th- 6.6sec 6th- 9.6sec
3rd- 4.2sec 4th- 6.0sec 5th- 7.5sec 6th- 11.4sec
3rd- 4.0sec 4th- 5.7sec 5th- 7.5sec 6th- 12.8sec
Also Wheels had an explanation for the slow times:
As a track surface 'rubbers up' (becomes impregnated with tyre rubber) it usually brings more grip, but not during our visit to Calder Park, VIC. Thick rubber from a recent drag meet killed any meaningful standing-start attempts, and our times reflect this. Getting grip of the line was impossible, and all cars turned their 'best' times with low-rev, zero wheelspin launches. However, look closely at the 80-100km/h times, where it's all about engine performance and gearing. The F6 Typhoon's weight and torque advantage combine with tighter gearing to smoke the V8's. It's decisively quicker in every gear we tested. And with good traction underneath, the Typhoon should also embarrass the V8's off the line.
