Well, looking at the quarter mile times, the cars are close, but not that close. Those quarter mile time will be with skilled drag racers. What I am getting at is it comes down to if you can launch it and he can't, you stand a good chance.

It has 4400 miles on it! Its been 'broke' in trust me! I ran through the paces! So what would his time be and what would my time be? And what do you mean by launch, no smokey burnout?

I would have to say the 3.5 would win. i had inturgie with that motor that tihing really moved. And if had the money I would get another one in a heart beat. My car really moved at high speeds that car would do 100 with out even thinking about it. have you the inturgue weigh less then th auroa. But I would diffenet break your car in more before the race.

Launch = brake torque just enough to preload the tranny but not enough to spin the tires free.
