XR8 ute vs SS ute

i jsut read an article in AUSSIE BRutes that matched a holden ss ute up against a BA xr8. and from the article i gathered they absolutly loved the xr8 in comparison and the mag gives me an impression of being slightly holden biased. the reason for the ss being trounced was that it must have been a dud they were sent from holden

Re: XR8 ute vs SS ute

I read an article in Motor magazine (I think), not sure which issue, but it basically said that after doing tests on Holden vehicles they are often left wondering whether they have been given a vehicle that had a little bit more than normal.
Wonder if Holden forgot to give this ute an "Edit" before sending it out to be evaluated.

When you crank it up, the LS1 feels like a rottweiler with rabies and distemper on a short thin leash that's constantly being poked with a sharp stick.
