EF as compared to VL

To settle an argument between myself and a mate (one of the 'nah i reckon you're wrong' type ones where noone actually has any factual evidence), which would be faster off the line - EF or VL?

He claims his stock VL will thoroughly woop my EF which has an exhaust system done on it, but I refuse to test his theory and find out who wins (im a wimp when it comes to racing my car, would rather look after it).

So who'd win?!

Re: EF as compared to VL

If the VL has been looked after, it will probably get you off the line, and with a bit of luck, the EF will creep back midway through 2nd.

Re: EF as compared to VL

The EF hands down...

I raced my mate in his VL with exhaust and manual, I never staged up once and never lost once and my EF was a stock as a rock 6 auto at the time.

Re: EF as compared to VL

The Ef should easily beat him, especially with the exhaust done.... Don;t let him intimidate you caus he drives a full sik VL, put him in his place

Re: EF as compared to VL

Thanks guys, next time it comes up I know I will be able to put him back in his place (i.e. second).

Re: EF as compared to VL

The only way a VL will beat you is if it had a turbo hanging off the side, otherwise EF hands down.

Re: EF as compared to VL

Like ive said before, my old EA Spac 3speeder could beat VLs, so if an EF couldnt theres something wrong.

Re: EF as compared to VL

Ive hammared it off the line against a VL , if my EA S 5spd with lil mods here and there can beat a stock VL then there shouldnt be a problem.
