compares notes on the different methods used to get the best figures out of
FG F6 310 test drive...
I was a little disappointed. It was nothing like what I thought it would
There's no turbo lag, which to me is why
I love my BF F6, it kicks you hard when Boost hits. This thing didn't :(
HELL OF A CAR FOR $65,000! Now go and book a test drive!

Stock XR6T vs VE HSV R8 307 Run 2
Back when my car was a 100% completely stock BF MK2 XR6T racing a VE R8.
Camera dies as we cross the line but the T took the win. We both had pretty
poor reactions times. This was my first run down the 1/4 and scored a 13.74
FPV Falcon FG F6 runs 10s - great sound!
Bill's F6 ran a best of 10.45 @ 128mph for the night at Calder Park using
275 MT street radials and E85 fuel. The 4L turbo six engine is now backed by a 3spd C-series
FG XR6 Turbo 0-200
FG XR6 turbo 0-200. Factory standard.
Rolling on factory 19" rims, Toyo T1R. Brand new tyres, so grip is
fantastic. Usually it would wheelspin to 60, stuffing up the gear change,
but this time it was nice and smooth.
0-100: 4.9 seconds
0-200: 16.1 seconds
80-120: 2.5 seconds
Eased off a little after 200, was contemplating going to the 240 limiter
but the private racetrack had a corner coming up so I canned that idea.
Can't wait to start modding it.
