Ride: G6E TURBO

Location: THE DRUITT
NSW, Australia

today a soaroar line up with me at the lights on the gt western HWY at Minchinbury that part of the HWY has 3 lane and is straight as a steel pole,
the soaroar was a 6 twin turbo well the lights went green he got the jump but as soon as the shift kit went into 2nd gear it was all over for him I smoked him for s**t at least 1-2 car lengths I wonder how I would go against a V8 soaroar?

The V8 soarer is definately the better machine. The TT soarers would be good if they had the same turbo setup as the Supra (sequential) but they don't.

Hmmm, quad cam V8.... would have some serious potential. For a price.

Yep the soarers are a bloody nice car, Can't go past a '32 active suspension, bloody s**t on aussie cars. check out www.planetsoarer.com I know what i'd rather my '92Ghia or a '92 V8 Soarer, just don't like the insurance part. Supercharge a soarer for 6k and look out I say.

Problem with Soarers I have heard, is that they have a lot of electrical gremlins that require lots of money to fix, being an import of course.

Lol, ever seen behind the back seat of a fully optioned import?!? Box for tv tuner, box for satnav, box for active suspension, box for cd player, box for body control....

Crazy technology, light years ahead of us!

i like the V8 Soarers, they are one of the best imports IMO, there's no way i'd get a 6 tho, 3.0 6 or the twin turbo 2.5 litre one, they both suck, go the V8, better sound, alot more power can be made out of it, and from what i heard they don't use to much fuel, but they rev very good and very quick rev out too.

Ive always wanted to put the soarer v8 into a falcon - seems like a nice mod really. I get my V8, I keep 4.0 Litres. Mmmmmm

Of course, the fact that they sound very nice and are alloy isnt lost on me either.

Nice cars, i really like them.
Altho ive been in the v8 and TT recently and must say the TT feels fast off the line but its not a rocket ship!
The v8 sounds nice but i dont know how fast they are, i ran up against one once and beat it - im told there must have been something wrong with it tho as aparently it should be able to take me.. go figure.
I dont care how fast they are they are nice cars and i would look at one if i was in the market.

Means you could keep the '4.0 OHC' badges :)

It wouldn't be a lye, just not the WHOLE truth.

a soarer v8 in a falcon would go like s**t, falcons weigh way too much, also a v8 soarer will s**t on the 5 litre falcon

Been against a v8 soarer in both my cars and sorry to say its not true; the 4l 8s arent very fast up untill about 60-70, they sound fkn awesome and go well after that tho..
I still think they are nice, wouldnt take too much to make them move!
And yes, 1600 at least, add passenger/driver/fuel/extra options on the car.. not light cars at all. :idea:
