well, i beat one and lost to another. i beat the lightning by about 2 car lengths. we did a 45 mph kick. he had the auto kickdown and i had turbo lag so it was a fair race, not according to him, but i walked the dog on him. he said before the race he had exhaust, intake, chip and pulley upgrade. he said it dynoed 410 rwhp. his excuse was that it weighed 4700 pounds. i said i have a 2.0l 4 cylinder, he stopped his whining. the cobra pulled me about 3 or 4 car lenghths right off the bat then slowly walked away. i did better than i thought i would. same 45 mph kick here, he wouldn't go from a stop. he had the car dynoed 2 weeks ago and made 460hp and 501tq...he had fuel pump, headers, exhaust, intake and pulley upgrade, maybe a chip, i don't remember. those cars are fast to start with but mess with them and watch out. i might be able to hang with or beat a stock one.
