it just like dyno figures, they aremost probably done on those happy dynos that are currently in operation in sydney and melbourne. i remember a vl 23QOUT, that supposedly made around 300 and something horse and was still running a single spinner, no front mount and 10psi (featured instreet commodores mag - now those guys are full of s@#t). I hardly ever believe dyno figures in mags etc.

Yeah I mentioned this in another post about the car. The magazine stated that it made 400hp (flywheel) and from what I could see, the car was running a standard T03 and NO intercooler. I wish I knew his secret, so I could run low 12's as well!

Hey sometimes, the magazine bull****s the power and specs.
I remember Rob (OMY-11S) telling me his specs on the diff, and they put other specs becoz they wouldn't believe him.
Rob, if youre reading, I think it was the diff was a detroit locker with 4.11s on the specs, but you told me it was just an LSD with 3.89 (I think). but anyways it was totally different to what you had on the car, am I right?

Yeah I remember that one vl.turbo. A yellow Walkinshaw kitted Calais Turbo with an exhaust and high flow turbo (no cooler?) making something like 200kw at the back wheel's!

from how many vl's i have seen, been in, read about and helped with, magazines are way off the case with power figures.

but anyway i could bitch all day about the bulls@#t that goes in magazines. i could be a 20 topic.

Also, you gotta love the 'owner specified' crap some of these guy's put in. Sometime's the owner's are to blame for putting down dodgy number's and claim's.
They think their car is going to be thought of as even better. but instead most people are cluey enough to figure it out, and they end up being thought of more so as loser's :roll:
