at least cheap wine gets u pissed

point is theres no substitute for cubic inches

Until my fuel card from work comes I'll stick to a worked 4L

I love the bit out of 2Fast2Furious where american muscle goes up against turbo sukked jap craps - Once again - NO SUBSTITUTE FOR CUBIC INCHES

16.6 seconds over the quarter is not quick i admit but the terminal speed and the fact that its got almost 6 psi to go is an indication that it should run much faster.There are falcons running very low 15 second quarter mile times @ 90mph, i ran a mid [email protected]
I'm willing to challenge all you guys with your $50k XR's at Heathcote for the next Forums test day.I may eat my words but i'm expecting much faster times.
I'm just trying to prove that performance can be found in something other than a heavy overpriced and underpowered falcon.Don't be scared we're not racing for sheep stations but i expect some surprised faces next time.

lol I'd debate the over priced and underpowered calls on Falcons - they are fairly well regarded as being one of the cheaper and more powerful family sedans in the world . . . (altho a little tubby in BA form)

Sounds like a quick little car, good luck with the sale (and bad luck with the licence).

Out of curiosity, was the wheelspin prob just a lack of practice, tyres, or something else ?

(oh, and have you posted on fordlaser.com and similar boards ?)

Hmmm....I thought you have lost your license? Or on your way?

I've seen your car, it's alright...but your comment about eating V8s for brekkie must have stirred the pot. Good luck to you now... :sperm:

Another thing, you don't have to prove that performance can be found in cars other than the big capacity Falcons. We've got the Skylines, Rexes, RX7s, Supras, EVOs, and etc. around that have been doing that for donkey years. It's comments like those you made that'll cop shite from the rest of the gang here on FF.COM.

The lack of traction was caused by too much power to the front wheels,the tyres are only 195/60R14 so only little rubber but when you go for more traction you run the risk of damaging something(wheelspin being easier on gearbox components),and i get my license back on the 18th of may(counting the days!!).I have illegally(sorry guys) dragged many a v8 be it crappadore or a falcon,the look on peoples faces is priceless. The quarter mile times don't show it but as u know HOTDBZ turbo's can be a hand full and just because the 1/4 mile time is slower doesn't mean its slow on the street.
The car was never meant to be pretty,the idea was to have a sleeper and it is one.

can i ask y u went 2 the strip with 195's

i think in a while when xr6t's are cheap enough for me and u to buy em' that we'll see a lot of that jap crap, put back in its place, considering the power potential -11.02 so far i think, with traction problems -thats up there with 98% of the faster gts-t skylines...

Sorry but the quarter mile times DO show it. It's a sleeper alrite. 16.6 is enough to put anyone to sleep :p
