Question XR8 Frequently Asked Questions?

Does anyone know of a Frequently Asked Questions list that covers XR8 Falcons?

If not, would anyone be interested in contributing to put one together? I would be happy to donate some time to manage it and host it on a web site.

My knowledge of XR8's is not that great, but being a recent owner of one I am keen to find out as much as I can (tech and non tech info).

If we could put together a list of questions frequently asked and a list of answers it could be a real bonus for new and experienced owners alike.

What do you think?

Must be the oil drag on the crank, the ls1 engine does not have this problem.

in fact, rarely do they have oil. (most of it blows out the exhaust.......)

Re: XR8 Frequently Asked Questions?

When you try to crank it up, the LS1 DRIVER behaves like a rottweiler with rabies and distemper on a short thin leash that's constantly being poked with a sharp stick.

Sorry I couldn't resist either. This is the FF isn't it!

You know where they have those overtaking lanes on the highways, we call the left one the Holden lane.

Re: XR8 Frequently Asked Questions?

Oh goodness.

Welcome bladeXR8. What model are you in ownership of? You may want to have a look over at http://www.trueblueford.com/Falcon_Choice.htm

Searching around the sub-forums here is a good way to start learning too.
