Today i was at Eastern Creek watching the PROCAR series. I was in the pits, having a look into some of the pit garages, as you do. I was walking past the Team GT garage and driver Trevor Haines was standing at the door and invited me into the garage to have a closer look at their car. Im thinking, how good is this!! So i took some photos and video footage. Had a chat to Trevor about the cars and he seems like a top bloke.
Also in the paddock area was a smashed sad looking BA XR8. The drivers wife was telling me that he was under steering round corporate hill and ran wide, then lost it on the grass, and then hit the wall.
Here are some photos i took today...
ALSO in the V8BRute there was bit of a hit with an XR8 and the grill fell off, so i took it home
hmm the xr8 looks a little worse for wear, could that be fixed?
Would be interesting to know what sort of power (rwkw)the GT is putting out- it doesnt look to have the bolt ons that most of us put on our Boss 5.4's, but i'de guess that it has some more agressive ECU tuning and diff ratio's to counter that

If you want a motec setup like that - go talk to a bank manager! You'd be lucky to get change from 10 grand by the time you add all the sensors and dash to it - not to mention wiring the thing in. My guess would be more like $10plus. I know that same bit of track the XR8 hit - I nearly found it myself except for the grace of dunlop and hawk blues!!
ah shite, there goes all dreams of my xr8 plans. BA XR8 with hollinger 6speed seq box. With motec and huge lumpy cams, with a redline of 7750. Ha i wish $20,ooo for the box $10,ooo for the motec, another $10,ooo on forged internals and fr500 heads and intake. I really wouldnt think that it would be worth that much. It nust b able to fly a plan aswell for a price like that.
