That's a good second+ or so advantage. It's also the best place to catch them out of vtec, without allowing them to take-off.
Vtec engages at 6k on the s2k, your forgetting that s2k has a six speed tranny and a 4.10:1 final drive gear ratio... which means hes not going to be in 1st gear very long.. regardless of torque. High gears = simulated torque.

Like i said my friend has an s2k and we run each other all the time (specially after i get a new mod installed) and from a slow roll in 1st gear its pretty even.
