Racer's Lounge - can i beat this ??????
05-31-2007, 08:35 PM
I don't know where to post this i thought this would be best. A ???? wants to race soon. All i know is that he has 260-270rwhp cuz he was talking to someone else about it. Then the guy he was talkin to says he should race me. I got a 00 z28, SLP Lid w/ a k&n, QTP LT's, 3" Ypipe all the way back into a magnaflow catback. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think this should give me 330-340RWHP. However, my car has 100K miles on it, still runs good but I should be able to take him right? I got some decent tires, but traction is still sometimes an issue. I'm thinking a 30 roll is best for me....any advice is appreciated.

you should have him no problem, unless his car weighs next to nothing or is spraying. go from a dig if you can get traction

the guy you're raceing sounds like a tool .. you should take him fairly easy and what the hell you might as well put a little money on it nothing better then pride and cash :jest:

what kind of car does he have?
05-31-2007, 08:46 PM
An S R T - 4 Someone changed my post i guess i'm not supposed to post this here.
It won't let me change it back either...wtf sorry guys its a neon though
05-31-2007, 08:53 PM
haha, nah, its just a filter on the site ???? doesn't work(see?) Gotta put spaces for S R T 4

270ish.... Make sure he's not spraying or u'll have your ass handed to you. Those lil things LOVE spray!!! Their bottom ends are forged from the factory. I've seen my boys do 500+ on a big turbo w/ a small 50hp shot. (but the n2o effect is exaggerated with the F.I.)
I'f you go from a stop u'd the best chance, on stock tires he will have NOTHING but wheel spin. And 45mph is a strong rollin point for their gearing. So go lower or higher. Are you A4 or M6?

I drive an A4 and I think the kid that had it before me put a shift kit in it..cuz every time i put it into drive it jerks unless it's warmed up. Anyways, I know he has some work done to it. I think all he has is an intake headers and some kind of an exhaust but i'm not sure. I know he's putting down 260-270rwhp though. I don't know what he has for tires. i know he has black rims so i'm sure he's upgraded the tires too! thx guys...oh what's our weight ratio. Is he a lot lighter than me?
05-31-2007, 09:33 PM
they are a FRONT wheel drive car not rwd. go froma dig and get a good launch, they dont weigh shit really. im gonna say bout 3200 with him in it, youre gonna be clsoer to 3600
05-31-2007, 09:37 PM
Thats about 30 hp more than stock which isn't bad. You should take him with your mods. If i were you i'd run him from like a 5-10 roll,(1st gear is USELESS in those cars) if you don't want to go from a stop. You should take him,it'll be a good run :).
05-31-2007, 09:42 PM
well i'm going to ask him to race tomorrow...unless he's chicken he better do it. I got my parents camera...i should see if i can get a vid of it...please don't get pssd if i dont!
05-31-2007, 09:46 PM
You better get a vid allbaugh_04 or we WILL DESTROY YOU. Make sure he has a passenger if you do so noone has an edge :devil:
05-31-2007, 09:56 PM
ah man....i knew i shouldn't of mentioned the camera! no i'll get a vid if he races. maybe his gf weighs 300lbs..then we'd be even
p.s. too bad my friends don't live around here. i'd go to walmart, get an oar and have him sit shotgun and we'd row our way to the finish line

thats not what a shift kit does sounds like you need a tranny service...a shift kit makes the tranny shift quicker and firmer...

it was rebuilt 7k miles ago though

If he's not on slick go from a DIG. He will NOT hook w/ the extra power. Know what year is is because the early ones came sans LSD.

Unless the car is driven by a complete idiot, that Neon will beat you from a roll if he truly is putting 270HP to the wheels.
06-01-2007, 08:41 AM
I don't know the year of the neon, but this is what I know so far....CAI, Throttle Body, and some exhaust work. That's all i could get some guy at work to tell me about it. He said he had no headers but he could have some new ones. Only one way to find out eh...
06-03-2007, 11:01 PM
I called this mofo three times this weekend and he keeps giving me excuses....dont worry i'll get him to go and get the vid
