Taipan Motorsport is very proud of both our pit girls (Marta and Camilla)
for there outstanding efforts over the weekend at Powercruise Syd 2010.
Hope you enjoyed the ride Marta. From all the team at Taipan, thanks girls

Marta, wouldn't you?
Massive shout out to the Team at MR HDT, you guys are the Big Guns of the
event not the cars.
Special thanks to Troy and Michael from turbo Smart, your products are the reason Marta
had such a good time.
Special thanks to CV Performance, your the man Con.

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.

Ford Falcon XR8 review : supercharged V8 hero unleashed
http://www.caradvice.com.au/321745/?yt_desc - Read the article here.
The Ford Falcon XR8 is back after a four-year sabbatical. With the Ford
Performance Vehicles brand now discontinued, with the GT along with it, the
XR8 is now the great blue hope against the V8 Commodores.
If XR8s of the past decade have been on the underwhelming side, the latest
version has impressive on-paper credentials. Loaded with the 5.0-litre
supercharged V8 from the FPV GT under its bonnet, there’s 335kW of power
and 570Nm of torque.
The XR8 has also pinched the uprated suspension from the GT RSPEC, which
includes stiffer springs and dampers, thicker anti-roll bar at the rear,
and Brembo brakes up front.
That all bodes well for a great-handling V8 Falcon, though the XR8 already
sounds like a tremendous buy when you consider its $52,490 price tag
undercuts the GT RSPEC by nearly $25,000.
Time to find out, then, if what is the last ever Ford Falcon XR8 is also
Wild Ford XR6 turbo!
Welcome back to the track Karman. After a 4 year absense the Ford XR6 turbo awoke first pass off the trailer. The
Falcon is still a full weight car with electric glass and factory interior.
Quickest pass for the day was an easy 9.0 at 151mph. The 4L turbo six is now using E85 fuel.
