dude, ive beaten a vp v8, (i think it was a vp), and my car isnt what it used to be, if your talking 6's you will kill them, the falcon only seems slower because it dosnt rev like a 3.8, they just scream. although ive only driven an auto


ive done the same f**k it made me feel good it was a manual amd mines just an auto. i love my ebxr6 it sticks to the road like s**t to a blanket. it gets a bit hairy in the wet though it just feels good. i think it feels better than my old mans ba fairmont.

Ride: EF Futura

Location: gold coast
QLD, Australia

my 100% stock EF II futura beat a commondoor with an exhaust system last night without really trying...it was a vn or vp (i cant see a difference).
plus i still had econ on and my car misses alot due 2 the fact that i need new plugs and leads.
but to be fair, i also beat another ford...ea maybe eb...it was dark so i didnt get a good look since i was in front...
for the first like 1-2 seconds the holden stuck it to me but then my revs got up there and i was gone and i didnt even keep my foot down the whole time since i was worried about the plus n leads missing n s**t...i didnt want to damage the car or nothing.

and just to think, when i get some more wire (today) and then my au3 xr8 snorkel on monday the car will go a little harder and shift faster...not to forget the leads and plugs going in hopefully on monday...stupid slow car yard and their stupid slow warranty things.

yo, i think VN's had a 15.9-16 1/4

But like I said, I think VN's had a ECU glitch that made em quicker than that.

ECU glitch? I can picture the holden engineers now... Thousands of km's of testing, and as the first car rolls into the dealers yard, engineer says "oh f**k, did they mass produce my 'burnout' tune?!?!?"

mate, i think these cars are without doubt, the most underestimated falcons around, hell, most people think they are the same as an eb (not tickford enhanced) but those few more KW make all the difference, and with the suspension enhancments aswell, they are the most rawest, geuinely enjoyable cars falcons i have ever driven

sorry everybody but newer falcons feel fake to drive and older falcons are to slow

Definetly check Jim Mocks website about the stall converters if you are going auto cause they look pretty good. Goddamn TH700's in those dunnydores with the low ratio first are pretty fast off the line. Might be a bit less stuffin around than a diff ratio change too.

burnout tune?

hahahaha, I think the glitch was too much low down torque, it was a reliability issue for the drivetrain. Anyone that's been in a VN wil attest to that GROAN from the tailshaft.

Anywaus, thought of another reason why I wouldn't buy a buick V6 powered commodore. That f**k s**t ringing thin exhaust note, f**k that sound s**t me. Take the lumpy grunt sound of a straight 6, listen to a skyline, valiant or falcon.

Hell Yeah
