Re: Can some of you guys help me out here if yas could :D

my brother drives a VR berlina....

we met up with a friend who owns an EF falcon (dunno whether engines in EF-EL are different)

3 runs....

VR Berlina out on top.

but that may be just because he had exhaust, but who knows, he did kick arse by a fair bit.

The T700 auto which the Commodores run is a better geared box IMO - he should win, but not "smash" you.
