it was only the vn series 1 that had a 0-100 in 6.5sec others had 9 or so that would be why

the auto falcons are just a s**t car to compare accaleration wise.
i find mine feels doughy as unless i give it say 1/3 throttle (kinda feels like the converter is just slipping) but its cause of the super long first gear and 3.08 diffs.
commodores have a much better first gear (and maybe even auto lol) plus most of them are 3.45 diff ratios anyway

I dont understand how a SR could be quicker than an XT, they've got identical mechanicals appart from the xr spec springs. The only reason the XR is quicker is due to the 3.45 gears in the diff.
