    Sounds of Triple 8's Twin Turbo V6

    So what are peoples thoughts and predictions on how this will be received?

    Do you think it sounds pretty good and the majority of punters will come around, or will it mark the beginning of the end of the series?

    For it sounds way too mild mannered when not at WOT. I wouldn't describe it as bad but its certainly no V8 in terms of noise quality. I do expect it to be fast however and have a very strong mid range.

    So true Col.
    Wicked up farfar too much - would have been BS keeping it on line with the amount of boost that would spool up but Jose was always silly.
    And there you have it Norms description for I6T owners rear end decibels...I also thought it didn't sound too bad for a whoooosssht.

    Apparently a bit slower than the V8 Supercar it was based on too.

    Boost too aggressive makes for less grip and more lag on a single snail. To me he looked like he was wrestling the thing but it looked fun!
