You stay out of this! Your silly race means nothing compared to the inherent value of this thread.

If you have 300 WHP and Torque you will take him with a good launch.

I've played around against a SRT Charger and Magnum before and low end goes to my STI but let's face it in the upper end there's no replacement for displacement and the hemi dosent hurt as well.

If he's modded at all, he's probably going to win. I'm going to go out on a limb and say that unless you get a perfect launch, he'll reel you in, and be passing you by the 1000ft mark.

OP, I really believe with your mods you should have no problem winning (if you have a clue how to drive). A 16GXT with EWG is a pretty nice setup.

I wouldn't be confident to do 7k launches on my car. 4-5k is good enough.

well I'm trying to provoke him to race sooner but he keeps saying he's having problems with his car and needs to replace a bunch of parts and all this B.S. I am as excited as you guys and its worth the video. Don't worry I won't miss out on taking a video of this opportunity.

Slow out of the hole yes but if you've ever played around with one from 75-100s then you should know that they pack a punch while rolling and if they are modified that's even more of an issue.

I agree that he should be able to beat him at a drag race though.

Remember the old saying there is no replacement for displacement?

While there's a reason that saying exists.

So you're saying a 103-104 trap car could outrun a 112-114mph car?

Reluctantly crouched at the starting line,
Engines pumping and thumping in time.
The green light flashes, the flags goes up,
Churning and burning, they yern for the cup.

They deftly manouver and muscle for rank,
Fuel burning fast on an empty tank,
Wreckless and wild they pour thru the turns,
Their prowless is podent and secretly stern.

As they speed thru the finish the flags go down.
The fans get up, and get out of town.
The arena is empty except for one man,
Still driving and striving as fast as he can

The sun has gone down and the moon has come up,
And long ago somebody left with the cup,
But he's driving and striving and hugging the turns,
And thinking of someone for whom he still burns.

He's going the distance.
He's going for speed.
She's all alone, all alone in her time of need.

Because he's racing and pacing and plotting the course,
He's fighting and biting and riding on his horse.
He's going the distance.

Yeah!

No trophy, no flowers, no flash bulbs, no wine.
He's haunted by something he cannot define.
Bowel shaking earthquakes of doubt and remorse,
Assail him, impale him with monster truck force.
In his mind he's still driving, still making the grade.
She's hoping time that her memories will fade,
Cause he's racing and pacing and plotting the course,
He's fighting and biting and riding on his horse.

The sun has gone down and the moon has come up,
And long ago somebody left with the cup.
But he's striving and driving and hugging the turns,
And thinking of someone for whom he still burns.

Cause he's going the distance.
He's going for speed.
She's all alone, all alone in her time of need.

Because he's racing and pacing and plotting the course,
He's figting and biting and riding on his horse,
He's racing and pacing and plotting the course,
He's figting and biting and riding on his horse!

He's going the distance.
He's going for speed.
He's going the distance...

And no replacement for displacement is true as long as you don't bring FI into it. How many Supras out there make ridiculous power on a 3.3? Liter. Even then look at the S2000. 240hp out if 2 liters. But then you have to look at the torque, or lack thereof. I dunno...
