    Whatever you do, do not race him from a dead stop. Other than that get UD pulleys, Long tube headers, O/R midpipe, 2.5" catback, CAI, 3.73 or 4.10 gears, Shifter, and you should be able to pull him from a roll. If you want to play it safe get some spray and tell him to :gtfo:

    Well hell you should be able to beat him from a roll with that I would think. It will be close. Just don't run him from a dead stop, if he gets the jump you will NEVER come back.

    well .....I think he's gonna give you hell from a dig or a roll.....I'm a sportsman though I'd say take him from a stoplight...watch the intersecting lights and when that bitch turns yellow get ready to mash it. in honesty if he' can drive decent he'll probably still take you....but your gears and whether he's stock or not ( which he offered up a race so I doubt it) could be determining factors....but if you lose you'll still pull more hoes cuz your in a STANG pimpin

    If I were you I would for sure get the gears installed before you race him, Other than that it should be a drivers race.

    I do like the look of the WRX though

    If you are going to race him, do it from a roll. He will kill you from a dead stop.. I own a modded wrx (see pic) and a stock 94 GT

    Why Not?? I Would.. Not only cause i will come out of the hole quicker than him, but the more they drop those clutches at 5K+ the weaker their halfshafts become, then BOOM.

    Even if he drops the clutch at 5k he won't break it during the race, I have 60k miles and pushing around 300 hp to the crank and never have i broken a shaft. If the guy knows how to drive his wrx he will win.. My old stang was pushing 330 rwhp and i had my friend race me with my own wrx and from a dead stop he took me. I caught up and won but I doubt this kid is pushing 300 to the wheels
