Re: EL2 XR8 or AU1 XR8?
Thanks alot guys. Well I have abit of experience with EL's as I own an EL XR6 myself. I have put superlows on, it handles better and I love the rock hard suspension. Brakes could have a bit more beef but otherwise they are ok.
My only real gripe is the Manual. I only like driving manuals, but the throw is so long, and its very easy to miss gears especially going from 2-3. I beleive theres a fix by putting a short throw shifter. Is the AU manuals like this?
CDAA, A few questions for you buddy.
How did you get 265 rubber on 8" wheels which OEM tyres are 235?
Did you add the bodykit or it came with it? If you added the bodykit how much did it cost and where did you get it from?
If I got an EL XR8 I would swap my wheels over which are EL GT mockups. If I got the AU XR8 I would whack on some BA GT-P rims.
As stated before I am in no great rush, so I will keep looking around. The longer I wait the cheaper they will get. But that will subsequently mean that I will get less for mine. Guess it works both ways.
