I don't know about an automatic kill. One got me at the track. He had a very good launch and 60'. I almost got him on the big end of the quarter mile. My overall time was faster than his, but he crossed the line first. You'll catch him at around 81 mph if they get the jump on you and from there you will pull ahead,(in the quarter mile). At that point just hope you have a few more feet to get to the finnish line or he wins. Of course I'm talking about an SE,(199. An SSEi won't have this problem at all.

stock GA GT could never beat a ssei, but once they start modding those things they can get fast. My friend leased a black grand am and he just put in an electronic turbo. That car can really fly. The lighter weight really helps (especially in the corners).
