    Honestly, I say go for it. Sure GN's are beasts, but anything can happen in a race. I once beat a 454 SS Chevy PU with my 100% stock 93 Plymouth Duster with a 3.0 V6. How? He spun off the line and went over a one of those sewer plates on the road which caused his assend to step out.... I WIN!! I should have never beat it, but I did. There is also nothing wrong with a little friendly competition!!

    Just be careful, if you beat him he may decide to put about a grand into his car and ask for a rematch. Then you would have an awfully hard time. Now go have some fun and be safe.
