the diffs play a big part, only problem is i don't think they hit 100km/h in second when they're behind the manual

Yeah well im pretty sure i havent gotten it past 95kms in second. Havent really tried so dont hold it against me i could be mistaken.....*about my own car* :shock:

But yeah good reason to test my guesstimate :lol:

When you say redline do you mean as soon as it touches the red or just taking it all the way? soz if thats just a stupid question :roll:

Okay fair enuf then, well on that note i havent redlined my car as ive only taken it to about 5100rpm and yes it was 95kmph.

LOL i dont think i want to take it past that extra bit thou, prolly would go all that much more faster ne way... :roll:

Wot about if you have duel fuel would putting it on LPG change how it goes?

No rev limiter with LPG, as the rev limiter can only act on the injectors.

Its not on the rev limiter but it's in the redline range, im not game enough to hit the limiter, the car is a daily driver.

Just a quick question... in the manuals for the Falcons, it says not to exceed 60 km/h in First... then not to exceed 80 in Second....!??!?!

Is there any reason for this, or is that a safety margin... how hard can you push it?!?!

Any you guys got dyno graphs for the XR6 engine vs the standard I6? Would be very interesting to compare the power curves.

well i think franks car doesn't go too bad for a ticky 6 - AUXR6 (auto) w/ exhaust & intake mods, and runs 14.9's on the 1/4 - not too shabby i dont think for a pretty much stock auto...
