    yeah, your screwed.

    low 12sec car stock and has some scary ass topend. From a dig you are going to lose by a few car lengths or more. From a roll, its seriously not worth it.... you will be embarrased beyond recognition.
    Best part about the car is that with a simple chip the thing will run mid to high 11's all day long.

    yeah, i think it would be fun to lose to a car like that, so go for it. just dont be silly and put money on it or anything cause you never know he might be modded and even quicker than you think. and please try to get it on video .

    knowing that you could buy two-three WRXs fully loaded for the same price as a AMG is the best revenge. At least that's what you can tell yourself as he smokes you like a marlboro light at a trailer park.

    I dont understand what the big deal is. its a mid 12s car, the AMG is, and im sure the STi with some good bolt ons and tune can hang in the 1/4 with one of these. I dont know if the mods you have are enough but its worth a try. I read somewhere last year that a properly driven Z06 will win 4 out of 5 times agains one of these in a drag race.
    You wanna shoot? shoot. Dont talk!

    Simple math here....

    287 awhp < 430 rwhp


    Once you start rolling you will actually be able to "see" the difference and it will become obvious that you brought a knife to a gun fight.....ah, and from a dig, someone already posted a mid 4-second 0-60.....I would go for it, just for fun, what the heck....

    Race him
    With a good launch you should be able to give him a real good race up to about
    80-90mph. After that he will pull on you pretty hard.

    I ran a pulley, chip, exhaust, gears, drag radials, etc 03 Cobra that traps 116-118mph. I was able to stay in front of him until about 85mph. After that he pulled away from me pretty bad.

    Do it. If you launch well, its even through an 1/8 mile, and will pull you maybe a car or two at the most through 1/4 mile. On one hand...Ive seen them run poorly at the track more often than the magazines test them. Ive seen 13 flat, high 12's. Make no mistake though, from a roll it will crush an LS1 Z06 and keep up with a pullied Cobra. Its worth doing just to hear those things.
