How does the Holden V6 make no torque and still outrun a i6 over the quarter and from the lights.

I know the i6 is full of torque but why doesnt it boogy like a commy.

Is ford caught out with bad fuel economy so they have to have long legged ratios to compensate??

tall gearing and extra weight due to better build quality. Thought it would be quite obvious really...

and at this point with the answer being already handed out, this thread should be closed.

because we are all sick of EBV8s crap and the sooner he stops or is made to stop, the better this place is going to be for everyone.

seriously enough is enough

(Quote-"Twins -matrix 2" ---"we are getting aggravated" -Somes it up nicely... this post is not constructive and should be put in either "Trackside" or "Off topic".. everybody knows commies have shorter 1st gears than falcons... but who says the commy is winning by the quater finnishing line... the falcon has it all over the commy once the ford stretches its legs over 60 km/h..

The otherday the commie got off the line before i did but then i planted it and took him. I really dont think its a case of falcons have more tourqe and commies have better gears. I think its like how people can drive and what the cars running like. There are also many other factors such as things being f**k or what ever. Bah i dont care. I got my falcon because of saftey features and the price. Not because i can blow people off the line or what ever..

Why hasnt EBV8 been banned? IP Banned? All his threads closed?

I think that makes it about 5 different ways EB V8 has asked the same question. 8-) He knows it's not true, so he is giving us a prime example folks, of why being a Meth affected Commodore driver, and being a member of a Ford site doesn't work. I think we should take notice of his example, go forth and rectify the problem, with a moderator solution.

even my telster beats most holden v6'z. those cars are way over rated, they might feel fast when in them but do go no where

they do feel fast, its so true, a guy from uni's VS felt like it pulled really hard when I was in it, but it wasn't actually that fast.

Yeah, i've taken one off the lights, but he got the jump at the start and then i caught him easy and passed him. cos i didnt want to look like a tool if i took the jump at the lights and he didnt race.

So quick to judge, lads. I'm not sure what forum rule he has broken?

EB V8 your last point in the initial post makes little sense tho. Longer ratios on the first gear will actually reduce fuel economy as you'll load the engine up harder to get it off the line... remember revs does not equal fuel consumption - load does.

It would appear it's the commodore who is hiding a fuel consumption problem by gearing the car down...

Lol
