BA XR8 misfire on start

Had a strange thing happen today . Started the ute up this arvo ( already warm ) and it sounded like it was missing 4 cylinders , so I stopped it , restarted it ( within 2 to 5 seconds ) , and it ran fine .
Talked to a mate who owns BAXR8 sedan , and he has had the same thing happen to him twice in 1700 klm.
Thought it might be dodgy fuel , but I only run Optimax in mine , yet he has been running on normal ulp.
Has this something to do with the ECU maybe.

Any help appreciated .

Cheers

when mine is cold and i start her up, i have to wait for about 5 seconds or so before i can put her in reverse and drive her out of the garage. it's just about to stall , give it a little rev not much 2000rpm, and it's like she's cleared her throat and then she's fine. once she's warmed she's fine.

Mine has never had any of these probs. The only problem I have had was about the 200km mark when I pressed the clutch in and the car would stall. Hasn't happened again (now at 1200Km).

Might be a silly question but did you touch the go pedal when you were cranking it ?

funny, my BA XR6 has started like a dog twice, ran REALLY rough, for about 1 minute then came good.

Only done it twice though, so I havent really worried about it!
