manual vl calais [NA6] vs my ED xr6

a mate at work has a stock rb30 non turbo manual calais. my ed xr6 is auto but has lukey extractors and a full exhaust. he reckons he'd beat me and i tend to agree, but i just wanted to make sure before i get stupid and put money on myself .

Re: manual vl calais [NA6] vs my ED xr6

hmmm, if your car were manual...

i reckon the VL would get you to about 80-100, then the XR would slowly get infront and pull away..

Re: manual vl calais [NA6] vs my ED xr6

As much as i hate VL's, they accelerate reasonably well to about 80 clicks. I wouldn't be seen puttin money on the VL, but his being a manual, and yours having a power-sucking auto, i'd say he's gonna get ya.
No harm in trying though, let us know how you go (on the 1/4 of course )

Get that shift kit and it will be a nice battle, or can anyone say 5sp?

Hit him up on a rolling star, might just hold him till top end...otherwise go the 5 speed and u will ease it in .

Re: manual vl calais [NA6] vs my ED xr6

Mate your best bet is to do a rolling drag, On kickdown, the XR6 will pull away without any shadow of a doubt. Thats where the falcon six shines, kickdown Torque is awesome. I Beat my mates Turboed Cryline by a Car lenghth and a half on a rolling start 80 - 120 km/h and even when i backed off, he was still snuffling and blowing off behind me! so yeah, id say do both drags, a rolling and a standstill start. You'd win in the rolling start no dramas!

Cheers

Re: manual vl calais [NA6] vs my ED xr6

derb - let me have a run with your mate with the VL. If i smash him, then you should definitely give him a run for his money!!!

Re: manual vl calais [NA6] vs my ED xr6

That's a bloody good question. What's the condition of his VL like? Because a mate of mine bought a VL SL 5 speed with only 100,000 on the clock, owned by an old man. For a car with only 114kW, this thing went pretty darn well.
