    Default vec 2.0t vs astra vxr

    one of my mates got an astra vxr so we decided to see the difference in power on our private track, my vec is on standard map and in 2nd and 3rd gear there really wasnt much in it, he was in front of me but wasnt pulling away from me, i then took a drive in his and it felt much quicker, any 2.ot owners had a run with a astra vxr, cant really decide whether he was holding back or jus a **** driver but i thought it was have pulled away from me?

    Would the (standard) 280 vectra vxr struggle to keep up with a vxr astra??? Agreed a vxr astra would blow away a 2.0 t vectra (driven correctly)

    In the VXR book i have edition 2 it say's the vec(280) 0-60 6.1 sec and the astra 0-60 6.2 sec. The vxr vec (255) does it in 6.5 seconds.
    so you can see for yourself the difference between the two models,

    Not a cat in hells chance. The Vectra 2.0t is a quick car but it is not fast. Unfortunatly the Vectra C is too heavy to get the most out of the Z20 NET.

    I have now driven a Vectra SRi 2.0T with the 210bhp BSR re-map and that is what the 2.0T should have been like from the beginning, but it would have been too close to the GSi at the time.

    I think Vauxhall should for it's last year do a 210bhp Vectra SRi T as a special edition, after all it would in no way overlap with the 280bhp Vectra VXR.

    But in this case, Astra VXR 1, Vectra SRiT 0

    Nice idea, like an uprated Edition100. Could they use the engine from the Saab 9-3 Aero 2.0T?
