    I dunno.
    I think it might be pretty awesome to hear v6 twin turbo monsters dosing across the top of the mountain.

    I suppose there's no point continuing with V8's, when a v8 engine won't be available in the cars they represent.

    The twin turbos V6's will be fine, if they let em eventually unleash the full potential of em they will slay the V8's.

    There will be a turbo v6.
    Point is, the cars that race should at least resemble the car you can buy.
    I've always had a problem with the Nissan Altima v8 in supercars, you can't get it with a v8. The race car has a fucken patrol engine in it.
    The new structure opens the door for a GTR to return to the mountain. That makes my d move.

    Dad was there yesterday when they took it for a run & said that although it sounded decent it just wasn’t the same as a v8.

    Shake that the v8s have been phased out there is nothing quite like the roar of a v8!! Definitely a holden man through & through

    It'll be different. No doubt.
    But I think it would've been futile to continue to insist the cars be v8, when you can't buy a v8 from the dealer.
    The allure of the supercars category is the the cars racing are at least somewhat like the ones you can buy.
    If not, it might as well be F1.

    Why you calling her out? until that point she had a great race, certainly wasn't the only one to make a mistake today and land it into the wall. Anyways great work by renyolds and his team, very deserved winner.
