    I'll try come up with some different angles, and advance some of those previous sketches somewhat.

    I'm still stuck whether to go for multi links or wishbones, but i'll probably have both...

    Well in comparison, my dads M3 had 225's up front and 245's at the rear. Thats with similar power to an XR6T, but less torque IIRC than a Falcon XT. Now increase the weight a fair few hundred kg's,...

    Ahh but what if FPV started developing something to come out for 2008 back in 2002, just for Ford to make a major change around 2004? If it was a definite known that the IRS was going to remain...

    I think i'll repeat the sentiment, that you look to have been extremely lucky to get off the way you did. Needless to say, whatever damage was recieved is of course unwanted damage.

    How does that work? :p The smell gets stuck in your helmet?

    Those roo's though must have a habit of jumping into things. My brother was riding down to Phillip Island a few years ago, and was just...

    The boxer layout's more balanced than a straight 4, hence why they didnt need the balancer shaft (which also saves weight). I'd assume from that also it could be possible to rev the engine slightly...

    Ive got to devote some time to it first :p Ive really only got MS Paint to work with, but i'll probably do some freehand drawings and then see where i go from there.

    Also, do we want to go for...

    The suspension i can probably come up with some designs, i guess of the layout of the springs, shocks and arms, like how theyre all located.

    As for the chassis, im really at the whim of those...

    Semi-slicks arent really a streetable tyre though. Great for a track day, yeah, but first puddle you find and you better hope youve got good reflexes.

    I'd probably stick with the Pirelli's,...

    On the face of things, it seems all that really needs an indepth look into is the styling and perhaps the engine. What's really expected from the rest? For example, for the suspension ive basically...

    Its a massive engineering effort, as youve basically got to redo all of the durability testing to ensure the new materials stand up to the abuse they'll get.

    I'd say its the light. The whole car is lacking tone in the colour, so much so it looks fluro.

    Probably going to see in a few years, pretty sure a 5.8L version is part of the new Hurricane/BOSS V8 program coming out of the states. Ofcourse, its going to be a continuation of the 4.6/5.4 and not...

    Ive heard the cast iron blocks can be up to 3x heavier than equivalent alluminium blocks, but subsequently theyre also about 3x stronger. Something like an LSx obviously doesnt have issues with the...

    Well, that may happen too, but theyre not going to lose 100kg+ unless they drastically change the way theyre built.

    Dont know about anything happening with the HO. What i do know though is Orion as a whole has the BOSS integrated far better than it was for BA, and all models will be 300kw+

    IMO an FPV tezza's a massive waste of space. What will it do that a normal Territory Turbo cant? Look more bling bling? Nobody's going to be throwing these things into corners and trying to see how...

    Well theyre not going to bring out anything groundbreaking this close to the new models. Just look at the Force 6 and Force 8, the only reason theyve been released this early is to establish the...

    An FPV spec Territory could be coming, but i'd put my money on a GTP spec F6. There was supposed to be one coming with upgraded suspension and a few other small things
