IF you are serious - which is hard to believe since the TL is a mid 14 second car stock - you will of course trounce him unless you take 2 seconds to shift in between gears.I mean as far I could figure I would make that distance up like really fast and then pull away, but I just wanted to make sure I wasnt over thinking this like I tend to do sometimes.
My points exactly! Thats why I thought I was over thinking this. I told him yeah I would race if its truly stock. Said yeah you can check out the car and even drive it if you want.IF you are serious - which is hard to believe since the TL is a mid 14 second car stock - you will of course trounce him unless you take 2 seconds to shift in between gears.
I have a 370Z as my DD and it rund mid to high 13's at 104 MPH in the quarter mile. My GT-R ran 104 MPH at the 1/8th mile at about 7.2 seconds.
Each tenth is worth at least a half a car if not a full car by the time you hit the towers - so you're looking at at least 15 cars (closer to 30+) if you line up equally.
Without going into that much detail - thats alot.
I find the entire concept bizzare - does this guy suffer from delusions of grandeur? He would have a hard time beating my 370 with a 3 car lead.
even if he did he would probably lose lolUnless he has a hidden twin turbo, he's nuts.
Yeah I made sure that was cleat that he wouldnt get a head start but a shorter length to drive. I was like wtf is this guy thinking at first and was like yeah I'll race but then after thinking about it I kept trying to talk myself into some reasoning as why someone would even want to race me like that.You give him 3 car length and both start at the same time? If so, you will kill him by 10+ car lengths. I must be missing something.
I said $500 minimum. Not much but still.what are we talking here $$$ wise ?
