My XF just beat an ED auto.

Whats the power to weight of an ED futura? My car is manual but starting with only 100kw as its carby i didnt think i'd have a chance. The ed was stock since it didnt even have an aftermarket exhaust. They do sound WILD though when givin a floggin, like a small jet taking off :)

Since ive just moved to the goldcoast from country NSW im still getting used to these things you call traffic lights. I can see they are loads of fun though

Re: My XF just beat an ED auto.

An ea sounds most like a jet I think especially down in the low revs with the clutch fan noise. And with the 3 speed they stay in gear so long it sounds like your car is going to warp speed

Re: My XF just beat an ED auto.

This obviously would have been a 4 speed auto being ED. I assume it sounds alot louder when your next to it than being the driver. I loved the sound.

What do ED's weigh-in at? My XF is 1380kgs

Re: My XF just beat an ED auto.

you will find the ED monty much closer to 1630 than 1500. the weight in the book is completly dry. No oil/fuel/coolant/YOU.
