Wheels mag's time to test the F6 Typhoon

and you guys thaught MOTORs times for the F6 typhoon where lowsy, check out the new wheels magazine and youll see that they only mananged a very poor 14.6!!! vs the clubsport and GT, both with a 14.2, why cant these journos get half decent times out of this thing, they are about 1 full second away from its capabilitys

Re: Wheels mag's time to test the F6 Typhoon

Well as usual WHEELS do get a slower time then MOTOR but seriously this car would do at least 13.7 or 13.8 for sure.....this is bloody ridiculous with more power then the XR6T and alot more torque i dont see how this struggles to dip in the 13 sec bracket.

I wont settle for excuses any more but for now ill wait till more times roll on and guess will see what happens then.

It's hard to believe the XR6T is quicker.

Re: Wheels mag's time to test the F6 Typhoon

The ED XR6 was quicker over the quarter than the ED sprint.
15.5 vs 15.8
$29,990 vs $43,500
Gearing, conditions etc
Do a lap of a track and you will see things change.

Magazine stats give you bragging rites, but day to day, go the FPV.

Ford tend to buid cars that are good to drive.
Holden tend to build cars so Holden owners can stand in the pub with a beer in one hand and there small friend in the other and gloat about how fast their cars are.

How true is that

Maybe they had the handbrake on.

Go hard or go home!
