BA XRs, anyone timed the 0-100 yet?

I'm more and more impressed with this car performance. Any one timed the 0-100 yet? For the first time in MY LIFE an STI was next to me struggling to keep up! There is a new test at autospeed for ,finally, testing auto SV8 that got 7 seconds flat. Has anyone tested his? Auto and manuals.

THIS THREAD IS NOT A FLAMING THREAD! OK?

Watch this space. As a test for the new Stalker ATS we will be conducting a small test with a BA XR6T and a BA XR8 both with around 10k km on them this Wednesday.

Will post the results when completed.

Cheers
Russ

I think that the guy that was driving the STI didn't know how to drive the car that way.

Ayman has a BA XR8 not a turbo, so does that make the STI driver worse??

Guys drive an XR8 and tell your experiences rather than going on mag results.... the XR8 aint far behind the turbs if any...

Remember the Boss donks take a while to loosen up properly and the test cars had only 3000-5000km's on them. Even so..its only a matter of a bee's dick of a second

More Ks on the car, more decent people out there getting humiliated by the Boss. You need to drive it fellas for a change. They just need to practice the launch for those new V8s cause there times are just not the truth.

So Russ, gonna be long before you post your comparo?hurry up..

I have beaten WRXs off the line (to about 80kmh) - some of those drivers just don't know how to launch - or maybe they don't need to know as over 80kmh, I get walloped!

What is a Stalker ATS? Is it like a correvit?
