I would rather a FG phoon over a GTS anyway. Im betting its going to to high 4's 0-100 and maybe 12 in the qaurter in stock form.

i agree, itl fly i recon. When ya look that wheels got to the Xr6 turbo to do 5.1 and 13.3 with 270kw, hopefully MOTOR in the next issue will lay down some good times, but i wont hold my breath. I remember reading in one of the PCOTY they got a Lambo Gallardo to do 5.5 and 13.5 quarter mile...and there meant to be a performance car mag lol

im not greedy all i want is a R6 Ute with the colour screen dash and a G6E front on it...

intake manifold mod could be a popular one...(if it fits)

ford wagons??? (only tera's) no such thing any more :(

Not officially yet, once the Territory Egas can get crash certified they will abandon the bf mk 3 wagon


Exactly the reason why I won't be buying another Fraud in the future. 300C wagons all the way - if for some reason that doesn't happen I'd take an SS crapadore wagon. The last decent wagon Fraud made was the EF XR6. And the territory doesn't personally appeal to me as a wagon.

300C's are a nice car and im assuming u need the space Twr7cx but Elxr8 wait till sum1 has a phoon modded then we see how it goes up against gts's with similar dollars spent eh. Also you have the upside of a car that u "can" drive moderately economically whereas u can drive a 6.2l v8 however u like its still going to use a ton of fuel.....

From reports they are going to be a seriously quick car.
