XR6T - 1, Clubsport R8 - 0
Well let me start by saying I am still smiling 24hrs later.
There I was sitting at the lights and a VX/VY Clubbie R8 pulls next to me. I did not think about running him but as he launched the sec the lights changed
I planted my foot further. I was in manual mode so went through the gears to 5600rpms. As he had a slight initial advantage, in 1st he was level with me but each time I changed gears I would edge further ahead. He would creep up on me slightly when he changed but just before hitting 4th he was clearly beaten!!!!
We both then backed off as our speed was getting exsessive. He pulled up behind me and stayed there in embarrasment.
Aren't they 260kw motors? All I have done with mine is drive it like I stoll it when running in (within reason) and fitted a custom second air intake. So I was / am might happy. Cannot wait to get a Stage II fitted.
