Interesting to note the comments about 'severe axle tramp' off the line. In fact, it sounds REAL bad. Now, call me a pain, but a performance car should not have axle tramp in today's world.

Bring on LSUG with traction bars I say!!!!!!

I wouldn't be so sure about that. Motor said nothing about the speed limiter interfering with the XR6 Turbos times, nor do I think that it would ever get to that speed on winton.

None of the Holden/HSV's made the cut for the following reasons:

Holden SV8: Essentially rooted after its stint at Winton. Nobody wanted to drive it after the brakes and front tyres had faded to nothing.
"...we didnt have the heart to keep hammering it"
HSV Maloo: Too expensive for what it is and doesnt feel tight enough and lacks grip.
"...And while we're at it, the gearshift is truely aweful."
HSV GTS: Power steering box yet again shat itself around the Winton circuit and even with expensive Pirelli tyres, lacks grip on tight turn exits.

Meanwhile the XR6T powers on to the final six...

"Where the Falcon spoke volumes about build quality and durability was at Winton. The Falcon turned just as many laps as the SV8, but by the end of play, the fit XR6T wanted more while the SV8 felt as if it wanted to puke its guts up."
Need I say more?
