    Default Gsi Vs Vxr

    I had a little playfull run yesterday with a m8 of mine who has an Astra VXR in standard form (It was on a very straight and clear private track). From 60 to about 100 he pulled in front by about half a car length, but from 110 I started to pull it back, by the time we were at silly speeds I was a nose in front but then we had haul on the anchors when we started running out of road.

    Apart from Full stainless exhaust and Pipercross Viper my car is standard aswell, it's not re-mapped yet and my iridiums are sitting in a drawer till I can afford the labour charges

    My question for those in the know is: I found out today that Astra VXR And Veccie GSI are just about the same performance(straight line) so

    How much quicker is the Veccie VXR than the 2 above.

    Hmm ... bad driving from the Astra i think.

    A Astra OPC/VXR is at least quicker than a Vectra OPC/VXR 255hp
    from 0 - 100 mph.

    I have driven both. OK not at speeds your suggesting.

    The Vectra GSi 3.2 is not the fastest of cars up to 100mph, this is where the Astra will kill it, butt he Vectra GSi does have very long legs past 100mph, this is the reason it looks to have caught up with the Astra.

    Vectra VXR, whether 255 or 280 would kill them both top end and the 280 on paper is a second quicker than the GSi. So you do the math

    Think one of the reasons that 888 switched to the Vecs was because of the better aero at higher speeds.
