If you raced from a roll you would most defenitly lose. But you would defnenitly win from a dig.

you are very wrong. you will win either way. it will only be worse from a stop. the come factory with 300hp. and run low 14's high 13's. there lt1 territory.
you dont have much to worry about at all. esspecialy with your mods.

They are quick, but I second this opinion. I have seen a couple and they weren't impressive at all. Of course they have the potential, but with what he has..........have a lot of fun and don't blink or you'll wonder where he went!

Not to mention the car is 10+ years old, who knows how well it has been maintained. I'm puttin my money on you.

You should be able to beat a nearly stock 300 TT

Had a freind with a 300Z. It humiliated a modded NA Cobra from a roll, when he was barely modded. I mean nasty bad. This was at altatude, but none the less, I dont think its a sure thing. 400 WHP is not hard. And this guy might not know the whole story on what mods are in the car. A light crank pulley actually makes a big diff in the 300Z's.

That computer reprogram might be a nice Jim Wolf ECU setup that has this nifty lil switch that instantly puts you into a race gas map. Hello timing advance/great spool/more top end.

Of course, it might also have boost leaks, phantom knock from worn lifters, and a slipping clutch.

I'm with Unit. Race. Post. Learn. Everyone who is really fast understands that you dont get there by just taking it easy and going for the easy stuff.

That is exactly right, and I know from first hand experience.

make sure he doesn't try to sneak a boost controller in there. That cheap mod will make him a lot faster.

The 300TT's had trouble with getting the turbo's out of sync after all these years from what i hear. At least, thats what the only owner i have met told me. Said he ran 13.9 with it. But yes, they are VERY easily upgraded. anything import TT is. (within reason)

You can't just slap a BC and turn the boost up on those TT's. :) They can be fast on a roll when modded. However, they are extremely horrible from a dig. Factory rear anti-squat suspension kinda does that to you. You shouldn't have any problem taking him if you can actually drive. :D

also take into consideration the age of his car. it might have lost a step or two through the years?? either way you got this one in the bag.

Jim Wolfe and Stillen offered a computer upgrade good for 60-80hp. However, the car is heavy for it's size. I believe its around 3400/3500 pounds.

i don't know, i was just responding to the i haven't seen one run quicker than 13.9 comment...it all depends on how much has been done to the car and how well it is running.

just run him and see what happens

stock for stock can an A4 TA take a manual 300zxTT?

My friend wants to get one to beat me, I doubt it'll happen but I'd be interested. He already told me he doesn't want to do lots of mods, just keep it nearly stock and reliable. Even bone stock it's a very nice ride for a 17 year old.

its gonna be a drivers race. anyone can lose a race from a dig. First hand experice....my buddy had a 94 manual with 3'' turbo-back, boost controller, intake, TBs, ECU and made 370whp. With a big set of slicks and an aggresive clutch, they can be formidable from a dig. He ended up building a forged bottom end with cams, bigger turboes, etc.

IF he has a boost controller, your toast. If not, you should be able to win. but again, its all a drivers race. And yes, they weigh in at 3400lbs

Those were $40K plus car's when they came out...part of why they had a lapse in production...

as long as it's a ls1 it wont have a problem either. you make it sound like a auto makes the car alot slower. the ls1 will wint auto or stick given they know how to drive.
