    me and greenfoam have created a challenge. we want to see who can hit the 0-60mph in 4.9 or less seconds first, and maybe give an idea of the costs involved in reaching it. im sure we will both update this thread with every new mod or tune we run. we also want to know of any of VN-VS commodores that have done it. feel free to post any comments, and join the race if you like

    i thought foam was down to 5.37s in the mighty VP. maybe both greenfoam and stocky (as well as any other willing participants) need to give a basic list of mods for the times they have achieved already as neither of these cars are exactly "factory spec" anymore

    You guys are gay...... start a challenge right when everything is going bad with my car.
    Best time was still 6.11, but i still never got around to doing a run after the tune.
    But hopefully whenever it is the cam/heads and diff are done, then i will get a lil closer.
    But still no were near 4.9
    Cars too heavy for that lol.
    Also why exclude me cause i drive a VS... bastards!!!

    ok VS can be included. im curious to see how quick the l67 vs's can go anyway

    just take a photo of the gtech flashing the time at the end of the run i guess. or record a video.

    Hmmmm..... 5.9 atm. I have a *lot* of work to do. Sigh.... I guess the drivers seat is all that will be going back into the VP for a bit :D

    I can send the graphs and data files for my g-tech.
