Now the Falcon vs Commodore 4WD race is on. Hopefully with the R5 concept done years ago, and trials of the system already well under way (hell, we saw one!) it will auger well for an earlier than 2004 release - at least before Commodore! (Motor still has 2002 in it's upcoming list)

Good news if that is the case!! The fact they were still testing the Raptor in October means it is promising, even though I personally doubted it would go through in these bad times.
