Your vn will win. he'll get you off the line because of the 3:45 ratio gears and as its a manny but you'll stomp him in power

You obviously aint been in many VL's :p

You'll rape his VL mate. Off line too. The VL's dont get movin til they hit 30km/h on the speedo... With the exhaust on his VL it will be much closer top end but you will still pull away from him even then...

The VL's dont have enough torque to get movin off line. The VN has more torque at just 1200rpm than the VL does at peak!

All VL 6's had the 3.45 gear ratio. V8's had the 3.08 ratio which our VN's have.

if its an Non turbo VL, you wont have any problems! Though, i havent been in a manual VL, but i wouldnt think there would be much difference to the auto.

I've been in my mates 3L manual VL and I have to say that it did pull quite hard. It was hard to tell though because cars feel faster when I'm not the driver. I thought he might keep up with the VN but wouldn't have a hope of beating it.
