I probably shouldnt be asking this in this section but i figured all the LPG people would be in here...
I have a duel fuel EL falcon (auto) and should it be able to spin off the line cause even with a full exhaust it doesnt. it also obviously has the extra weight of the gas tank plus a set of 235 on the back

thanks all

No, it is highly unlikely that you will get an auto Eseries to light it up off the line.

Even on petrol.

My old EB sedan would if you had hard steering lock, but then it was a 3.45 LSD with exhaust and intake mods.

Location: Canberra

my (ex) auto ED with 235's lowered and with people in the back would only just spin em every now and them if you worked the brake pedal while stalling it up. now its got a T5, CAI and cat back 2.5" exhaust and FRIES!!! tyres (well only one most of the time due to single pegger). and it will turn 205's and alot easier than 235's

With enough revs and dump the clutch, yes.

But too much of that will break something quick.

If your car has a 3.08 diff, it won't have a hope.

It is normal for it not to chirp etc. It is likely to take a bit to get off the line but should be really going well by 40ks.

Ride: 1999 AU futura

Location: griffith
NSW, Australia

My 94 ED futura sedan auto 3.08 with open centre and 17inch 235's,I can get it to spin both wheels (pushes sideways,odd for an open centre).Its a very odd car,it actually used to be duel fuel,but soon after i bought it i removed the gas (gas is ownly for bbq's).

All that has been done to mine is a 2.5inch exhaust with one muffler from the cat back,highflow cat (standard exhaust manifold),custom 3inch intake with custom airbox.Hot earth wire setup.Regular services,lowered.Nothing out of the ordinary.I dont know if this makes any difference but my ED is a 7/94 has the EF block in it,from what i have heard.Note that my rocker cover gasket is different to an earlier ED engine and i have one of those 94..... sumthing or other heads.cheers

Yes, that is not too hard to achieve, but not the question asked hehe.

Also easier with the smaller tyres you have on :D

highly doubt it!

my ef mont ghia in stock form used to kick out sideways sometimes...only single pegger..3.23ratio im told. auto didnt slip then smack into it...only sometimes.

quite strange....then again the tyres were so old they would have no grip..where now i have full exhaust and newer tyres it doesnt off line...but rips if i hold brake.
