Hi all



Myself and shaynet ran the TE-50's today at wakefield park and what a result. We were the fastest fords out there on the day and demolished everything on the track including a highly modded CV8 Monaro running Potenza RE055's, evo lancers 5 & 6, Wrx Sti's etc, blew the doors off the BA Series II GT with every bolt on known to man + all the usual herrod gear, 4 Capa prepared Turbo falcons with stage II mods and one was running AP racing brake setup...... The only cars that were faster, on a private two car run were two race prepared MRT team Mitsubishi Evo 9's that ran times in the 1:12.50's. We were running the T3's around at 1:14:30 on street tyres and these blokes could not belive it. Overall it was a top day and had heaps of fun. I have in car cam as usual and will most likely up the video tomorrow night. Not bad for two standard T3 Te-50's with very mild mods consisting... Street Tyres, Exhaust, CAI & K&n Filter.




I should also mention....


Special thanks to sbutler who was there on the day and provided excellent tips in tyre pressure's for that particular circuit and his detailed knowledge in regards to V8 Supercars setups and his superbike racing background. Thanks also steve for the use of the timing transponders.


Cheers.


Cheers.

No problems Al happy to help..
Well done to both you & shayne, the cars looked the part & performed very well. Its a shame that T3 man had to leave, would have been good to compair times between all three of the T3s. Not only that but three T3s thrashing around the track would have looked great :hy:

Great stuff. The T series really should have been titled a GT, then everything after would have to at least match the previous model for performance. I love my GT, but the T series hammer.

Nice photos, but how about some different shots, maybe from a different angle?
Those shots were done by professional photographer who work at the track and their vantage points are limited to a few spots on the western side of the track. All the shots are either coming onto, or at the end of, the main straight. Don't know if you are familiar with the track but there are only two left turns.

I guess they could have got some in the tight left "fish hook"

There is in car video footage of about 4 laps from the red car on the fordforums.com.au which shows how fast they are

is it just me or does that thing rev slowly............ Whos car is it? WOuld love to go on a track against that in my F6 :D
Settle down now Simon, Thats the fox's car & you know its only got an exhaust & K&N so your F6 would smash it at the drags. :zzz:
But saying you'd like to get on the track against it might be biting of a bit more than even you can choo..
Remember there are corners on a real race track :whoaa: HA HA

The blood orange BA II Xr6 had a aps stage II kit on it with everything, AP racing brakes. His best 1/4 time at eastern creek was a 12.1 something. So 1/4 times really count for nothing on the circuit. Corner speed is everything. I slowly revved my car too 5500rpm only in the interest of engine preservation. I don't like getting my car towed home...if you know what I mean simon.:hy:

Cheers.

Pretty clear outcome id say. :hy:
Corner speed is very important, but so is straight line speed and HP, no good being 1/4 of a second quicker in the corners if you're a 1 1/2 seconds slower down the straights, some people forget tracks have straights too, not just corners!
Good track times are as much to do with the driver as the car, Foxy can obviously steer a car no doubt and loves to push it hard!
But dont forget most people either dont want to push their cars anywhere near their limits on track days or dont have the skills to do so.
Judging by the reaction of MOTOR to the STOCK F6's overall balance and prowess on a curcuit and their claim that its the Quckest and fastest Falcon they've ever driven on a curcuit (dont forget how tight and technical Winton is) id say a stock F6 shouldnt have any problems at all actually, a modified F6 would really ruffle a few ego's, especially amongst the modified HSV clan!

haha steve, my cars not set up for the drags, And i can tell you that on my fpv driver day there wasnt a car that could hold a candle to the F6, It was so much faster then my GTP it wasnt funny, and i wasnt pulling the piss i was just asking thats all!!!. i dont have to worry to much about corner exiting speed ect with my beasty heres a little clip of what happenes when you try and put your foot down in third http://www.xtremefordtuning.com/video/typhoon_2006.wmv

have you got any more vids of your car foxy?


Oh and dont quote aps this and that as being special, poor thing was prolly going in and out of limp mode with the ol piggy back. I know a certain member whos stock F6 wiped the floor with a group of aps cars and a T3 and 4 GT's. :shh:

Hey Foxy how have you been mate, Hows the beast going?


Been good. Very busy with work at the moment but trying to have a bit of fun in between. Cars going great at the moment. Looking forward to seeing the results you get from Jamies car. What do you think you will get realisticly from his mods with your edit?.


Cheers...
