A friend of mine from works wants to race me at the track. He has a Mustang GT softtop with automatic tranny. He is getting a set of magnaflows installed. I have a 2003 Subuaru WRX Sedan with a MT. The only mod I have is a Cat Back Exhaust. I can launch pretty good.. I rev to 4000 rpm and slip the clutch slowly in which I think is pretty effective. I haven't really been able to test my times but I *think* i'm going really fast.
yeah, you'll dust him if you get good launch and all. I raced a GT on the street, i gave him a little head start, say, 3 cars, before launched, i'm stock, i caught up in 2nd, passed him in 3rd. so you should do fine.
