    Up my way, a lot of tradies buy the XR6 Turbo ute, hard to generalise about cars or tax, bit I do know that neither cars have a one tonne payload to meet ATO requirements.

    Take that list with a (very big) grain of salt. Many of the cars listed there are anything but showroom stock. Plenty of the "official" manufacturer runs have non standard (read semi slick race) tires and suspension tuning. Those sorts of things really detract from the prestige of such a list.

    So you don't factor in how well a car drives when buying it? This test gives a direct comparison between the dynamics of one car to a range of others so we can see how well designed it is. Thats the whole point of testing production cars on a race track.

    The whole point of an SS ute is extra load carrying ability whilst still driving enough like a car. I'd think this test is extremely relevant for potential buyers

    I have my opinion, and you have yours. Doesnt mean we have to agree.
    I obviously buy a car for a different reason to you. Does that make my reason wrong, or yours correct?? NO.

    I'm buying one even though the current car is over 20 seconds a lap quicker.

    It is nonsensical to suggest buyers don't take into account dynamics when buying a car.
    In fact, THE major selling point a VF SS over other utes is it's superior performance and dynamics.

    So actually, I'd say your opinion is wrong and so is your reasoning
