Most of you guys know I drive a stock as a rock AU1 XR8 auto. Well i bumped into a bloke from work in town last night who drives a pursuit 250 Ute. We've been talking about a run for a while, so we decided to cut all the bullshit and do it that night. Anyway, it was about 1:30am and not a car in sight. Pulled up to the lights, both stalled up (both auto) and off we go. I got him off the line and kep in front by just over a car length till about removed. By about removed he was a car length ahead and by removed he was 3 car lengths ahead. Yes he BLEW me top end, but bottom end I had him. His tyres are pretty bald on the rears, but mine aren't the best either thanks to heathcote. I was supprised, I thought he would have had me all over. We are going to have another run some other time, I think when he has some new rubber and I might have a mod by then too!

He must of been playing with you, Ive run a xr8 series 2 and fryed him it was a manual and so is my T3, but I have to agree the xr did have me in first but when we hit second it was all over red rover I think its becouce the xr didn't wheel spin as much and I sat there melting my Yokahamas

I think the whole point of this thread is gone now as the speed's in which I was ahead and taken over have been deleted. Ohh well, I never knew I breached the site's TOC. I guess I'll have to have another read of it....

Very few cars can beat AUI XR8 until about 60k/h. The low down torque of that engine is amazing.

I fail to see how an AU1 XR8 would have more low down torque than a pursuit 250!

Especially when the T3's had more torque at 1800rpm than the AU XR8's had at peak.
