  1. Re: TS50 is better and theres proof!!!

    The TS50 might be quicker than the R8 by a fraction of a second but the TS50 is also the best ford can offer!.....I would like to see a TS50 beat a SV300 or a GTS!
     
  2. Re: TS50 is better and theres proof!!!

    I thikn that the cars are so similar in performance, there are times where HSV has been quicker and times where T series is quicker - there is nothing in it. Depends on conditions, drivers, and if by any chance one of the 2 cars is "not one of the good ones"
     
  3. Re: TS50 is better and theres proof!!!

    The TS50 isn't the best Ford can offer. They can offer a nice 300kW+ Falcon in just a few months.

    Ford just didn't want to go into an all-out power race with Holden, but since that is what the public wants, that is what we will get. Ford will eventually come out on top, as they did with the original GTHO Falcons.
     
  4. Re: TS50 is better and theres proof!!!

    I don't think Ford will "come out on top" I think they might just take the lead when BA comes out, then Holden will work on their cars and take the lead again, then Ford, Holden etc etc.
     
  5. Re: TS50 is better and theres proof!!!

    It seems that Ford won't be going out to the 300+kW range anymore, but with the technology put into the Barra, they might still be able to go faster and accelerate quicker than the Holden. Ford can easily get past the 300kW range, but to do so, they would have to fork out money to the Australian government. As HSV do.
    When they've already spent enough money on developing the Barra, they don't really want to haev to pay more to release their big cars, so 290kW+ seems to be what they'll get now. But it doesn't mean Ford will never break that 300+kW barrier.
     
  6. Re: TS50 is better and theres proof!!!

    I hope they focused on bottom-end torque if they aren't putting out a 300kw+ engine.
     
  7. Re: TS50 is better and theres proof!!!

    Well, it's just a maybe, so hopefully they still bring out the 300 kW+
     
  8. My friends dad has one of these cars and he brags so much!!!

    I say to him a Supra is faster, older, better looking and cheaper.
    The only thing wrong with the Supra is it has 4 seats and two doors.
     
  9. Re: How much are these? My dad wants one

    Who would want to import this? Get a T series.
     
  10. Re: My friends dad has one of these cars and he brags so much!!!

    I don't think I would like to squeeze in the back seats of a Supra.

    My Dad wants to buy a Supra, he went looking at a couple today (at the Toy Shop for anyone in Newcastle). I'm trying to pursuade him to get a R33 GTR though.
     
  11. Re: My friends dad has one of these cars and he brags so much!!!

    How much faster are the stock supras, than these cars, can they do 0 - 100 in around 5.97?
     
  12. Re: My friends dad has one of these cars and he brags so much!!!

    Supras can do it in 5
     
  13. Re: My friends dad has one of these cars and he brags so much!!!

    Supras can do it in 5
     
  14. Re: My friends dad has one of these cars and he brags so much!!!

    Supras can do it in 5
     
  15. Re: My friends dad has one of these cars and he brags so much!!!

    Supras can do it in 5
     
  16. Re: How much are these? My dad wants one

    If his dad wants to import this then he can. I'd prefer a T-series too
     
  17. Re: My friends dad has one of these cars and he brags so much!!!

    The SS does it in 5.97 so the R8 would be slightly faster.
     
  18. Re: My friends dad has one of these cars and he brags so much!!!

    Ohh yeah wouldn't be too much faster
     
  19. Re: My friends dad has one of these cars and he brags so much!!!

    U bullshit artist!!! SS cant do it that fast!!!
     
  20. Re: My friends dad has one of these cars and he brags so much!!!

    Yes it can, check Motor mag my friend
     
  21. Re: My friends dad has one of these cars and he brags so much!!!

    Yes it does, but i thought the R8 was the same
     
  22. Re: TS50 is better and theres proof!!!

    0-100 is never a very good statistic to use for power, 1/4 mile is much more accurate
     
  23. Re: TS50 is better and theres proof!!!

    I'd say it's a better measurement of performance, not power, adn if you're stickign to sumthing from the engine, i'd say torque, but you can tell that anyways
     
  24. New SS and SV8

    The SS will have 235 kW and 465Nm... it'll have better handling, and suspension. It looks better than what i saw when i saw drawings, and they are bringing otu a new model.. SV8. it's goign to have the same engien as the SS.
     
  25. Re: New SS and SV8

    Front is alright but the back looks rather shite.
