  • Astra vxr v's focus RS

    Just seen in the back of this months redline mag that in there next issue there kicking off there Ford V's vauxhall campaign starting with astra vxr V's focus RS .

    Anyone know anything about it, wonder which comes out on top should be interesting read if its a fair review and both cars are modded as standard it will be one sided I m sure

    Time will tell I suppose.

      If it's mark 1 rs against the vxr , the vxr will come out on top but if it's mark 2 rs it's a bit of a unfair comparison as the rs has 60bhp to start with , it would have to be stage 3 verses standard to be a fair test IMO and my stage 3 is quicker then my Mates standard mark 2 rs by a fair bit

          Very unfair test,both totally different "class" of car,VXR v ST,yes,both made to,compete,so to speak,in the same market.....Focus RS,lets be honest,is on a different level than the current Astra VXR.........

              We ll just have to wait and see what the mag says lol but I think the only real fair test would be to have 2 tuned cars making around the same kind of power , then they wouldn't have to worry about that just how its delivered and then concentrate on the handling ,braking and looks etc

                        as soon as i saw the title of this thread i said 'oh dear' out loud, lol. No disrespect to the op as it turned out not to be the regular vxr vs rs thread, lol.

                            Nothing wrong with the thread other than it has been completely killed on here many times,the mag will point to the rs as the better car as its a more modern media darling and the astra has had its day in terms of modern hot hatches, technology wise .
                            maybe better if they hang fire and do the test vs the gtc vxr as then they will be comparible weight and power wise imo.

                              the vxr is coming upto 7 years old , although as i`ve said before for anyone comparing the vxr against the RS well credit goes to vxr ,
