It would be close. They both have top end, and I can see them accelerating 0-60 about the same.

The maurader is RWD, so it can launch so much better. The RWD tranny is probably stronger as well, so you can abuse it more. Whomever can launch better will probably win. Pushing it in turns the RWD will win everytime.

It'* easier, cheaper, and probably responds better to mods, then the northstar as well. So once you throw money at them, you're hosed.

My buddy test drove a maurader he said if you didn't have the throttle all the way open it was a dog on acceleration. He said hitting the gas a from any start was laggy unless full throttle. Kinda messed up.

You need to brake torque them up and get the rev'* higher then idle before launch.
