If it's about Aura tuning - how is it possible to make 0-100 in 4,3sec on FWD v6 ? More or less it looks like magic. No wheelspin with such power on the front axle?
Have there been made any special suspension mods, or tires or whatever?
Or it's just a 1st of april joke, as this film was posted on that date.. :)?

....in this case, how it's possible to make it in 4,3sec on FWD ? XWD is not able to do that, how come FWD can?
And what's that measuring device, it's built in the car's computer ??

It’s a 2.8 v6 auto they put the power down so much better than the manual
Are you uk based?

Putting down the power ok, but transfering it to front wheels with such result and lack of spinning ?
Nope, I'm not. Why ?

Michelin pilot PS4s tyres make a huge huge difference

I ask because we have a group on what’s app dedicated to the v6 and tuning

But there's HUGE torque transfered to the front wheels, so do the tyres make such a difference? I have a 9-5 ~400Nm (which is a lot less than this v6) and the wheelspin in first two gears is terrible.

Oh, whatsapp group. Sounds interesting, but I'd never be able to meet You guys, I'm too far - Poland ;)

Aura tuned this is the old set up has had since been refining different turbos and what works I think we are in the 8th turbo set up now :)
This was in an old 19T cast wheel turbo all the useually Do88 hardware
Big brakes suspension etc etc

It a very well specced car and extremely nice to drive as it’s literally wanted for nothing he’s super hot on preventative maintenance

But what's this measuring device ? It looks like it was integrated into the car's computer. It's not Dragy, neither Racelogic..

This is insane TBH, I just can't believe how it's possible. I have a few friends with 9-3 SS 2.0 FWD 350+, and none of them is able to make 0-100 in less than 5,7. I haven't seen any film on internet showing it's possible either.

V6 Auto put the power down well to be honest.

I ran a 5.05 at 330bhp and now this

Currently the quickest on dragy

But is this the matter of changed gearbox software, especially moded for this specific tune, or it's still stock?
If yes then, is it possible to set limiters on manual so that it could run like auto ?
Looks like it has a big advantage over manual, while in general it's said to be much slower on these cars...strange.
