Hey guys. I've got a friend at work that's got a 96 Corvette Automatic LT1 with roughly 85K miles. My Mustang is an auto as well and has a few minor mods such as CAI, exhaust tips, 93 octane tune from BamaChips. He's challenged me to a run at the drag strip. He's a good friend of mine and they'll be no hard feelings if either of us win of course.:hihi:

He says he's never raced before. My best 1/4 mile time was a 13.92 at 100.4mph. I've only been to the drag strip once so I'm not very experienced.My car will have new BF Goodrich KDW T/A's by the time I go. It's got cheap Avon all seasons now and those were the ones I had last time at the strip. Gonna have a bunch of people from work come watch. A lot of people at work think I'm gonna smoke him. What do you guys think? Be HONEST :shigrin I know we're all just a little biased.

You've got me nervous now, The only record of 1/4 mile time for a C4 vette LT1 auto i could find was the "official" Car and Driver tested time of 14.1 seconds. I dunno if I should trust that though.The six speed manual vette of the same year is supposedly rated at 13.64 seconds.

If you can drive good and he is stock, you will take him.

Power has gotta be similar be hes gotta be lighter. I remeber LT1 Camaros running 14 flat so Im sure the Vette is gonna be a few ticks quicker. Then again that car has some age and miles and who knows what state of tune the engine is in.
Hope you win.
