Default Need some help...who won

A friend and I ran each other and are having a huge debate on who won. Mods are in the video, but what's not included is his car weighs 2800 +/- 30 or so lbs with his weight reduction; he did not drive, he filmed, if you search yr vs StinkyM the videos show up of his view. My car had myself and another 220 lb dude for a difference of about 900 lbs. my car without me weighed 3420 on a certified cat scale and I weigh 220.

So basically 3840 vs 3000. Should have ran driver vs driver but for whatever reason we did not. I also drove 2+ hours for this run so I'm incredibly disappointed we 3 runs.


His views.

Just run him again, sans passenger.

No winner in those runs. I'd say he had a slight creep at the point you guys usually lifted, but as soon as he shifted that would be reversed.

Take both passengers out and you'd probably pull a bit.

Wish we had taken the opportunity to eliminate th passengers. Now we don't have the time.

Should have put the passengers to the side of the road or dropped em off. The result is the result now. Nothing you can do to change it. I can't say you won it, TBH. Would you have minus passenger... yeah, maybe.

Yeah, without passenger, would have made a difference.

You won. The dude wasn't even driving his own car which means he sucks at driving which means you are faster then HIM. Now as far as the dude who was driving and you, that was a dead nuts tie. He pulled a couple feet at first and you seemed to slowly regain it up top for effectively dead even races.

Now that being said: the fwd car loses in a tie as you know that beemer would walk you from a dig.

Hey on that weight issue: car and driver list a rsx type S with a curb weight of 2736 lb. http://www.caranddriver.com/reviews/...take-road-test Yet you say somehow your car weighs 700lbs MORE?!? Think you might want to use a different scale and reweigh your car.

The RSX won most of the races and was the stronger car, that said .. depending on what you were running (i>e> 60-120..ect) the bimmer won one maybe two rACES..MAYBE, BUT THE rsx WAS PULLING EVER RACE.. imo

Being that the rsx shifted 5th the first time and was still pulling I doubt it

Without the 220lb passenger, you win, period. A passenger of that weight in a race like that is worth at least a car.
