Ride: AU2 220kw XR8

Location: Sydney
NSW, Australia

Ive got the 220 AU Auto and my brother has the 260 BA Manual. We both ran At Eastern creek today, both standard. The AU got a best ET of 14.602 at 153kmh. The BA got a best ET of 14.202 dont know the speed.
The BA could have run quicker but was suffering from really bad clutch slip.
Time to start modifying the AU. Want at least mid 13's out of it which shouldn't be to hard i dont think.

Brett2752:
Mid 13's out a an Auto 220kw AU wont be easy or cheap, you must have a good one to be running 14.6's.
4dlvr: If that was a Series 3 T Series, i would beg to differ that the BA would leave it for dead at 120km/h, if it was only the 220kw one, then it should do. The strokers haul a** more than the 260 Boss'. (Sound better too)
