VS holden vs. EF Falcon?

I have got a 96' EF falcon, with exhaust, and my mate just bought a 95' VS holden.

both engines are stock, and both are autos.

Seeing as his holden seems to be the "equivelant" to my ford, I was wondering which model car is better? and does anyone know of a website that compares the two cars?

Re: VS holden vs. EF Falcon?

Your mates car will be quicker off the line due to the first gearing of then holdens, but down a QTR mile, you would probably win. As for which model is better, horse ofr courses, both have thier respective strength and weaknesses, heagaskets in the fords case and rear main seals and power steering pumps for the holden.

Re: VS holden vs. EF Falcon?

The commie should win on the quarter too.

I don't have specs in front of me to back that up but I'm sure falcons never beat commies in basic spec until the AU vs VT.

Re: VS holden vs. EF Falcon?

from memory i'm pretty sure that the falcon is quicker than the commy. falcons have always been a touch ahead in the race of the sixes. the falcon definetly has more power about 10 kilowatts or so but just do some searches on figures to find out.

The commy should have you stock, but once the mods start comming the falcon responds alot better.

Re: VS holden vs. EF Falcon?

as has been said, in stock form - bye bye falcon, but not by much.

A better air intake and an exhaust will have you convincingly beating commodores though.

I have a catback on my EF, and a few other things, and i can own a pretty ordinary VR or VS, one in good nick still gives me a pretty close run though.

Re: VS holden vs. EF Falcon?

seems to be a split decision on who is faster, i'll guess i'll find out when i have a chance to race him. Hopefully its after the extractors go in on tuesday, so i can wipe the floor with him.

Re: VS holden vs. EF Falcon?

VS wins on takeoff but EF gets the jump at 80-100km/h (i have done it to death when my car was stock against my mates berlina)

Whats your take off technique like?

Re: VS holden vs. EF Falcon?

Just adding to what chubbz said, do you know how to stall it up? If your mate has little experience at a drag (done on a private road or stip I hope), you can take away that short first gear advantage by doing the following. Have a practice at home by left foot hard on the brake, and put the go pedal down to the point where the wheels start to spin, then back off so they don't. Remember this throttle position. When you line him up, do this and when the flag drops, release the brake, nail the go pedal to the floor and you'll get a good jump at the start, dramatically increasing your chances of winning. If he knows it too, well, your stuffed :p
