    What would average be for an auto SS in standard trim from 0 to 100? Had a guy ask me today, and i had no idea...... never timed it. I know it gets there fast....

    I reckon it would be close to low to mid 5 seconds

    Reaper has taken his for a spin on the g-tech I think he may have gone near mid 5's at least lower than high 5's anyway, I think it was similar to what he was running in the VP, pretty quick for something straight out the showroom

    sounds about right...... after i posted this i had to duck into town, so i tried it by just using the old 1001 - 1002 - 1003 etc.... took just under 5 seconds counting that way. I'll get my son in the car with a stop watch one day and try it again. It's no big deal really..... goes plenty good enough. I was asked by a mate who has an XR8.... i think he was after bragging rights. His is the same year as mine, 2006.

    I thought it was pretty quick standard, try whacking some diff (3.7) gears in there, wow it's a massive difference and bordering on scary :D

    and then slip a charger under the bonnet and you'll be set.

    The BA/F XR8's are alot slower especailly the autos. I race those all the time at the drags, they're slower then the VT-VY LS1's let alone a VE
