    i said "aussie designed fords" this means that its designed and manufactured in australia...

    I wouldnt be too cockey.........although im a holden fan i respect the XR8 and especially the XR6T. Those turbos are monsters when tuned properly. Anyway theres plenty of fords that can easily beat WRXs. I suggest you stop racing taxis, those things run on LPG, give the big boys a try (tuned fords and holdens) and go to the strip.

    XR6 Turbos rip it up all right... so many peolpe are already calling them the next VL Turbo... hell, there is one or 2 XR6Turbos out there in the 10 sec zones...
    one is the APS car... http://www.airpowersystems.com.au/falcon/xr6turbo.htm APS even have the fastest XR6T out there, theyve clocked it at 307kph at an airport strip... see the videos there

    You in Melbourne? I see SS and XR8 taxis everyday in Melbourne.

    Relax dude, just trying to keep the old local shiat v's jap crap rivalry alive :bigthumb:

    I also respect the XR6T, for what it is, in a straight line it's a great car. They just have to sort out allot of quality issues with them. I have two mates with them, one has been back four times for warranty work and the other twice. Good ol' local manufacturer build quality eh :rofl:

    Monarocountry, I don't race taxis mate. I only race worthy apponents. Wouldn't waist my petrol on something I know I'll rip for an ego trip.
