Default In a 1/4 mile who would win?

My hubby and i had a heated discussion as to who'* bonnie would win in a 1/4 mile race.

He'* driving my old 94 SE completely stock, and i've got my 2001 SLE completely stock he says the 94 has more bottom end than the 01. I told him i'd ask the experts on BC.

So who would win?????????????

The 94 is significantly lighter, and develops it'* hp and tq down lower, but it produces LESS. The SLE will overcome on the 1/4, but the 94 should beat it to the 60' and MAYBE even the 1/8.

If the 94 gets a good launch and the newer SLE just dogs it off the line, the 94 will win.

I beat a 98 SSEi that was modified at the strip... Until he learned to launch.

Thanks for the info guys. I guess with these 2 cars all and all it would depend on who'* the better driver. I guess i owe him a night on the town.
I'm surprised to learn that the 94 is lighter than the 01, i guess the look is deceiving. The older style models look like a heavier car.

The 94 should be 400 pounds or so lighter than the 02, but the bigger problem is the 02 is more tail-heavy. Bad news when launching. The 94 makes better use of it'* lighter weight. The higher revving Series 2 will run on the 94 later, though.

I'm really curious to see how this comes out. Keep us posted!

I think the closest track is probably Caugua pronounced K-U-GA. I'll have to check into it anyone in Ontario know of some more tracks?

I'm putting my money on the 2002, if the person knows how to drive it.
