ford falcon xr6 0-200 (manual, naturally aspirated/non turbo)
the car has a full Exhaust, intake,
stage 3 cam, & of course a Dyno tune.
Not sure why it shudders in gear 1 so much when trying to launch, its got a
bit of a clunking problem despite the rebuilt lsd diff and new
driveshafts.. perhaps the tyres are simply too wide.
update: i know why it shudders - it's called axle tramp (which is normal
and quite common in rwd cars), and i've already got rid of half of it + the
clunking is pretty much gone..
stiffer gearbox/engine/diff mounts is what you need to completely stop the
EB falcon cylinder head reassembly-how to + a small blooper!!!
as per title, YES I DROPPED A F&%KING CABLE TIE INTO THE TIMING CASE!!! IT
WILL BE OKAY(IT'S ONLY A VERY SHORT CABLE TIE), SO DON'T CARRY ON ABOUT IT.
IF YOU HAD DROPPED SOMETHING METAL INTO THE T/CASE, THEN IT WOULD BE A VERY
BIG PROBLEM(which would require a lot of dis-assembly)!!!

XR6 Turbo chasing a BMW M series 135i
My Falcon can reach 100kph in approximately 5.1 seconds. How fast are these
are these BMW 135s. Although I didn't plant the foot as quick the Beemer
and lost traction in second gear, I still wouldn't have been able to catch
the BMW. Sorry about the beeping noise coming from my radar detector.
