The Xs were faster in qualifying than all the IXs.  The fastest IX (the Quinn car) in qual was 1.3 seconds slower than the fastest X (the Kondouris car) and the Wall IX GSR was 2.9 seconds slower.

In terms of the race, FTD was recorded by the TMR X (Rod Salmon's car) at 2min 30.97.  The Bana X's fastest lap was 2 min 31.30secs  The Wall IX GSR recorded a best time of 2min 31.53, and the winning 335i's fastest lap was 2min 31.47.  The Quinn IX recorded a best lap of 2 min 40 during the race (WAY of the pace).

The IX's qual times this year were a bit faster than their qual times in 2008 (where the Wall IX GSR qualified first in 2008 with a 2 min 30 lap).  The 2008 lap times for the Wall Evo IX was in the 2 min 30- 31second region, which seems on par with this year's times.  In fact, I'm sure it did a 2min 30 during the '08 race, which means it's fastest lap this year was slower than its fastest lap in 2008.

The car that's gained almost two seconds a lap since 2008  :scratchchin: is this year's winning 335i, which could not keep up with the IXs in 2008.

I was talking about grunt in a straight line, not lap time...

did you see the results are still provisional, with one Evo9 having been found to have a "boost irregulairty"  :scratchchin:

and that ^ car is not the one I saw to be incredibly fast in a straight line....  :tilt:

cheats and losers in motorsport, nothing else.  :tilt:

Poor Seto... gotta feel sorry for him...

even if he won, he would have been feeling, deep inside.... "but it's not THE Bathurst"  :tilt:
