Recently my mate tryed passing someone he knows in his VX S with about 150ks on the clock and the car he tried passing was an EL Wagon with 210k on it and anyway, being p platers the wagon punched it as well and the VX could not gain any ground at all, infact it got left by a few car lengths. It's been burning him up and his pride has taken as massive hit ( i find it funny as hell). But can anyone guess as how that even happened? 4 years between the two cars aswell....

Good point. Sorry to mislead. Not trying to start any arguments.

guess its either a case of a) your mate can't drive and was in the wrong gear, or b) your mates engine needs a tune up, or c) the ford has more torque and just wiped his ass ?
Don't S packs have higher gearing thus making them slower accelerating ? Like SV6's have taller diffs.

Thats the kind of replys i wanted.
Just had a quick look around and found this:

EL Falcon-157kW @ 4900rpm - 357Nm @ 3000-3000rpm
VX Commodore-152kW @ 5200rpm - 305Nm @ 3600-3600rpm

Might have something to do with it.

Yes. I should have googled it first to save any arguments on here. Oh well.
