Ride: NL 347, Landau

Location: Adelaide

I leave the NL is economy when racing - no good valve bouncing before changing gears - you are allready dropping power by that stage. I spent a lot of time on th Gtech Pro-Comp and worked out optimal launch RPM and shift points.

Whats your best technique for launch?
I find it hard to launch the fbt as you said it doesnt take off like a rocket s**t, it either bogs down n revs out slow or i get too much wheel spin; its pretty inconsistant i think too, sometimes it goes and others it feels slow no matter what lol.
One thing ive noted is i get best accel off the line at about half throttle for 1 sec then go for it, but other than that i give up, if you put it down right away its like its confused for a sec lol.

Your NL isnt quite stock thou now is it, coughBLOWERcough, no wonder the fbt feels slow to you. :lol:
Fastest car ive ever driven, bar a ba xr8 for 5 min, but nothing over 2.5rpm. :(

The NL is still completely stock bar the AU snorkle, herrod intake pipe and K&N filter. It is just a freak car.

It must have been shagged, my 5L is ridiculous when it comes to traction. Only now with 8" wheels and really good tyres can I get anything close to a decent start.

Could have been, i honestly didnt look at kms of it, i only drove it coz i was being nosey n the salesman walked up n said "take her for a quick drive" lol, i didnt say anything about what i owned..
It was in good condit tho in and out, not great but good for a 10 y/o car.

What makes the fbt so fkn dead off the line then; its an animal over 40km/hr :!:

In comparison to the I6 I wouldn't buy the V8 again.. Unless I had some serious money to replace everything. :? :x

Haha, now you tell me!

Nah, in all seriousness it beats the pants off my i6, im very happy and sound is awesome - plus the power from 2.5-4k rpm is insane compared to an i6. 8-)

Shane yeah its pretty good for 550,000km!!!

The FBT may carry some pretty sever torque tags to reduce low end torque like the AUv8's are plauged with.

Ride: G6E TURBO

Location: THE DRUITT
NSW, Australia

the V8 has grunt and a nice note compared to a i6 with a 2inch exhuast plus with the V8 it feels nice and tuff to drive as the i6 can feel like a boat,personally I think ford set up the V8's better as not many are produced compared to the i6.
