    While that kinda suprises me and kinda also doesn't. Simply because Monaro's are heavy f*ckers and they'd lose a bitta power when transferring it to the rear wheels.


    Probably a crappy driver as well tho, if not maybe theres something wrong with the Monaro, as I would expect it to be a bit faster.

    It's was pretty cold - I was starting to shiver about 11.30pm when we decided to leave.

    The MPS was getting a fair bit of wheel spin off the line whereas the Monaro hooked up and went, frequently chirping 2nd and kicking out a tad. I know because I was taking note and they each did about 4-5 passes because the Monaro's times were puzzling and unexpected. I agree though, the Monaro should have definitely been in the 14's.

    FYI 2005 Motor mag stated the cv8 having a 0-400m time of 14.55 which is slower than
    an SS at 14.43.

    One cheap and ezy way to fix the Monaro.....EDIT

    Seriously though, low 15's does seem a tad slow for the beast but like its been said previously, a lot comes down to the drivers ability expecially in a manual. The cold temps would definitely have helped the MPS.

    Could prob be put down to extra body weight.

    Monaro = Kerb weight 1708kg
    SS = Kerb weight 1654kg

    Just for giggles: Mitsubishi 380 VRX Auto = 1670kg
