my mate just brought a au xr6 when i drove it it didnt seem to go that hard 140 in a 50 (whoops) but i dont think i relised just how hard i was going lol.
we went down town last night and he was giving it a hard time, well F@#$ did it go hard 70kmp drift with what seemed little effort, ford made 2nd gear just as a burnout gear i think, handled very well too, i thought we were at bathurst lol although i had a joint before we left, i am now defenitly working the F234 out of my eb and getting a manual :D

He meant private road, cause it was at my families private airstrip.
We put up 50k signs just for s**t and giggles.
And when fastleno says he had a 'joint', he means he had a stiff joint, as inhis elbow was stiff.
It's all above board here at FM mister trawling police officer.

Yep.
I've seen a stock BA XT auto munch an AUI XR6 VCT manual.
And the AU driver can drive.

AU's weight 1530kg
-----------------------------------
XR6 HP: 164kw @ 5???rpm

XR6 VCT: 172kw @ 5000rpm

BA's weight 1694kg ?
XR6: 182kw @ 5000rpm

Not too sure but The BA might be quicker although. I think there is a calculator on google which you enter the kerb weight and KW figures and it gives an estimation on times (1/4mile, 0-100kph etc)

This same BA XT also munched a BA XR6 Manual ute, multiple times.
Standing and rolling starts.
Only mods at the moment are rims/lowered. and resonator removed from the tail pipe.
