the gt has a curb weight of 3484 and 200hp stock with the 3.8l motor and a lower gear ratio im sure you can beat him if his gt is stock

*update*

Alright, i won the race but it was very close. i only won by about 2 lengths. we went to this deserted road by our houses. we live like 5 minutes from each other. we lined up and then we took off from the dig. he got a slight jump on me, but once i hit second gear my car just started flying! my adrenaline has never pumped so much. lol. overall im pleased. thanks for the support.
