You won't need to touch tyre pressures with a stockish auto 4L.
Run the pressure you run with on the street, reduce rolling resistance.
Steel rims are a good idea, as long as the tread on them is half decent, they weigh less then alloys.
I'm not a fan of stalling up with stock stalls (unless boost is involved).
With 4Ls I stay on the brake, tramp it, and a fraction of a second after I get off the brake, so it "flashes" the stall.
This technique also works on auto LS1s :P

It hits it harder and shocks the stall point up a bit more, as opposed to sitting on the brake at the stall point and heating up the trans fluid.
I think with stock convertors because they are so tight, stalling them up does 2 tenths of f**k all.
Give it a crack.

The track at the motor plex is very good, traction wont be a problem if your running a near standard 6. Especially in a BTR auto.

I'd leave it around 30 if you have good rubber, a tad less it you have large rims.

No big burnouts with standardish tyres, a quick blast to get the water off and get em warm is fine.

Might see you down there.

okay so this time dont run with a carload of mates, do a run of just the driver in each, and like i mentioned before, take out any dead weight like subs/spare.

I meant more like what steady said about 'stalling' the auto, sept i didnt really know how to explain it. havent driven auto for a long while now.

I don't know how all the Ford boys on here, can just plainly state, that you'll flog him. I doubt you will.
I reckon it will be line and ball. If his ute's a bit ratty, then you might just pip him top end.
The saving grace you have, is thats it an auto.

If it was a manual ute, he'd flog you. VN-VS manual 6 utes move pretty well. The auto's slow them down a heap.

vn auto are very similar to manuals in terms of speed where as wit ford a manual gear box makes a massive diffrence.
generally ford i6 should get a holden v6 over the quarter,
i am yet to lose to a commy v6 on a street race until the speed limit.

I don't know how the manual/auto makes no difference in VN's works.
The 3-4 manual VN's i've been in, all fly for the buckets of s**t they are.
One must have been a freak, cause i would've put it in low 15 sec territory, the thing just screamed.

Yes the manuals in the Falcon's mnake a huge difference too, but auto to auto. I reckon this will be a very close race. I'll be waiting to here the results and see some timeslips.

vn commy autos have very short ratios, first and second are just as short as their manuals,
as the commies got newer the first 2 gears in the auto wer also slightly increasd. which is why a vn would hammer on take off but a vx,vy and vz are slugs off the mark.
where as ford used the same ratio auto gbox since the ea 4speed through out to au.
as i said before if both are in good nick the ford i6 should win, no argument.
i remember seeing old nrma specs and road tests. vs stood no chance near a ef. ef clearing 0-400m in 16.1 and the vs in 16.9. the ford was even quicker 0-100.
