So me and my buddies went out last friday night to just cruise around and have a little fun. But we all ended questioning all of our prior knowledge of f bodys. To make it easier im just going to number all of our cars.
1. My car 00 Z28 Auto LS6 intake tsp lts borlamouth cat back and tune. I made 336 rwhp before the ls6 so im assuming 350 355 whp.
2. 01 Z28 manual stock aside from open exhaust after the y pipe.
3. 98 ta 6 speed lts, borla, tq3 cam, and tune 375whp
4. 99 ta auto Borla catback
So we all figured Fastest would be #3 then mine #1, 2 then 4
NOPE
1st race was #1 and #2 did several rolls with same results every time. He would launch me by a car then stay there or pull slightly all 100 plus runs. never gained on him.
Then i thought maybe something was wrong with my car raced #4 to make sure, Destroyed him every time.
#2 & #3 Again #2 slowly pulls every time.
#1 and #3 40 and 50mph rolls he always jumps about 2 or 3 cars on me but about 110 i slowly start to gain but never catch up before we shut down.
Does my friend have a factory freak? :werd:

Auto vs Manual? You probably have 2.73s final drive as an automatic unless it was optioned to be equipped with 3.23s. The same goes for the other A4 car you raced, he is also most likely 2.73s which is why you beat him. The problem is the M6 car that has 3.42s as his final drive. That steeper gear will always out accelerate a 2.73 car unless you're making gobs of extra power or running up to high MPH. Do you know what your final ratio is? If not it's most likely the final drive that is killing you.

2001 LS engines gained minor engine upgrades that helped overall performance if I remember correctly. Not significant enough to kill a 375rwhp car though. That's why I hate street racing. Go to teh track!
Only difference is you get an official time saying you lost. :lol:

Tons of bad drivers at the track, usually in fancy sports cars too
