your car is heavy, so If you have an auto, and he has a manual, he may very well beat you. If you had a coupe it'd be a no brainer . . .

It would also depend on how good you both are as drivers. You could have a car which would obviously win based on HP and torque alone, but if that driver isn't good at shifting - he misses 2nd gear consistently for example, then the challenger has quite an advantage.

The best way to find out which car will win is to go out and see!! Then you can analyze who won and why.
Im rootin for the stang, though :thumbsup

yeah, you still have 600 more lbs and around 40 more hp. That's 15 lbs/hp the extra 40 has to carry around.

I can't say who would win.

Good Luck!
