    The falcon is faster in a straight line.

    But the VE still has by far the most competent chassis. As even with a firepower deficit, they are dead equal around a track.

    The LS3 is a Godly sounding engine.

    I think i might actually have the F6 over the R8

    i'd have a GTS though over the F6

    The F6 traps 112 mph in stock form. You're a boost controller and exhaust away from, what, 118-120? Can't do that on the LS3.

    That is true. The ford engines modify reaaalllyy easily.

    You will get those times up bloody quickly

    but look at how composed the Holden chassis is off the line, it buckled down and shot off like a rocket.
