VB Challenge

Did anyone see the VB Challenge on the V8 telecast?
When Bright started doing donuts i could'nt here the V8 but when Johnson started doing donuts it sounded like an animal.
My TV was vibrating from the engine note .
It was very nice indeed :D

I've DRIVEN both of the VB Challenge cars and from my experience the Commo is better set up. It sounded way better too. Maybe they have made changes since I last drove them though.

The last time I saw the VB challenge cars up close and at full noise the Falcon killed the Holden. The engine sounded way better:D

Standing in front of those 2 cars, the Ford sounded much better, that crappy commondore really had its exhaust full of potatoes!

Should have seen the rear wheels of the ford after those final burnouts, completly scaifeyed!!

I think it was January. Or maybe December. It's a bit of a lottery as to when you see them in my game. What I hate is those mock up V8 supercars because you always have to detach the front spoiler to move them anywhere.

When I last saw a VB Challenge Commo it had a non-ratcheted extended handbrake lever, full race seat/harness, side pipes, and suspension geometry extenders on the front end.

I was at the Calder round and you cannot hear the Commodore at all! The Falcon has a awesome V8 note to it. Same with the XR8 Monroe Safety Cars. The way a V8 should sound.
