Default '99 Grand Prix GT

My buddy just bought a '99 Grand Prix GT. Now he insists that he can take me in a drag. I've never stomped my car when he was in it, so he really has no idea what he'* in for. I've never raced his model Grand Prix. How bad do you think my completely unmodified '00 SSEI will kill it?

hmm... you might have to keep your foot off the floor if you want to be able to see him in your rearview

if you ask me you should let him take you up untill about 40 or so and then floor it, have a little fun with him, let him think he'* gonna win

Yeah you'll beat it..but we shouldnt really be ripping on GT GP'* ..considering they have the same engine as more than half the ppl in here. They are nice cars

Absolutely no problem. You have him by 35hp stock to stock, and by TONS of torque. Just laugh at him the next time you discuss it. My Series 1 L67 is only mildly modded, but I can take a stock GTP rather easily now. My count is 4 so far this year.

Kill him. He needs to be humbled.
