2006 VE SSV A6
Didn't end up racing but have tested out the new Hoosier Drag Radials, 245/45 17 and they are nothing less than amazing, no traction control, full throttle and I got zero wheelspin consistently, I have never experienced this before so amazed by the results with the Hoosiers, improved 0-100kph by almost one second, pretty excited about how this will affect my previous personal best of [email protected] given I done this with a lot of wheelspin! here's a video of 0-100kph... VE SSV Hoosier Drag Radials 0-100 4.3s - YouTube

Thanks HoldenMan7, unfortunately none of the drag strips in New Zealand, at least the North Island where I live, have any racing on in Winter and the next one I'm aware of is Fathers Day drags in September. BUGGER as I am really keen to see how it performs now!

1=Cold Air Intake

2=Tune

3=Modified/Aftermarket Throttlebody

4=Ported Intake

5=Headers

6=Cam

7=Modified/Aftermarket Heads

8= Torque Converter

9=Drag Radials/Slicks

10=Front Runners

11=Rear Gear Change

Not stripped, but lightened a bit... weighs ~1750kg with driver.

Change out 9 & 10, put seats back and rear exhaust section and its his daily.

130mph - must have some serious power, even if he has stripped 200lbs out of it.
Launches hard that for sure!

I realise it is generally not fair to compare a modified VE sedan to a stock production car, but without using forced induction, using bolt-ons, cam and a bit of porting, you can make a streetable Commodore with AFM go faster than one of these in a drag.
For between $5k-$7k.

700hp and under 1600kg's in the lambo.
You're not going to get any where near that for 5-6k in a commo.
Plus non of these 10sec ves are technically streetable.

Its pretty easy to get to high 11's with 320rwkw 4.11 and drag radials but thats costing more then 5/6k.

I was assuming heads and manifold can be done locally, so say $8.5k plus drag pack but let's not split hairs when comparing a Commodore to a $845k Lamborghini, lets just round it off to $10k.
The amazing point is that this car is a VE with stock bottom end plus $10k of bits swapped, and superfluous weight removed.
