    whats faster? stage 3 astra or stage 1 vectra?

      how does a 300bhp astra vxr compare to a 300bhp astra gsi? i had a gsi before and it would skin a stage vectra without much worry

      i know people run 330-340bhp on standard internals, is this safe? whats a std clutch good for?

      thanks

        350 is about the limit on standard internals. Clutch can take it (depent on how drive) but like the box it wont last.

        Veccys are much better daily drive i miss my vectra, astra track maybe. How about upgrading to insgnia best of both with a exhaust and map. Or VXR8

          Vec would have it as there is an abundance more torque, why not upgrade the vec?

            id defo say the astra would be faster to 110ish, after that, no chance...the veccy vxrs pull like hell at top end!

              if the 2 of them has the same power surely the astra will "use" it better if u know what i mean as its been modified therefore usualy modified is more effective, right?

                  i think alot of us will underestimate the power of a stage 1 EDS veccy vxr, ive had one recently, and the thing is seriously insane.
                  i time each gear on a private airfield near my house
                  1st gear got up to 56, 2nd to 86-90, 3rd to 118-120, 4th to 146, 5th to 159, and 6th to 176 with lots of rev range left.
                  veccy vxr aint the 3rd or 4th fastest saloon car in the world for no reason.

                  and also, stage 1 veccy vxr have more power than a stage 3 vxr astra, alot more torque to.

                    The torque on a rolling car is what makes it, and the vec has it in abundance, the engine in the vec is all geared around torque,
                    I know its not what you want to hear but I think people underestimate the vec a lot

                        Do the power to weight ratio if they both have same power the astra will b faster the veccys r heavy cars

                            depends if u want a rolling start or a standing start, ad say up until banning speeds, the astra would have it, however if u continue until jailing speeds then the vectra wins 10/10!

                            having owned both, its a tough call, although the torque of the veccy is alot more than the astra, the astra does feel more aggressive in pull (mayb the remus makes it seem faster also)
