Will his tires hook at 2800 RPM on launch? If he's running factory Pirellis, he'll likely have a little spin at that range. Might cost him in the 60ft. It's not a bad launching point, but he might fare better around 2K, if his tires are factory.
I realize I'm running a V6, so apples to oranges, but with my 3:55's, I couldn't get my 245 Pirellis (GT/CS 19" take-off's) to hook solidly at anything more than 1,500K RPM, and that's with maybe 60-100 HP less at the rear wheels than a GT.
