    a stripper model formula will be slightly quicker.
    other than that, its a matter of who gets a better jump.

    aren't the formula's lighter than the trans ams, if so wouldn't that make them faster than a stock WS6 TA.

    Technicoly if the formula was also a WS6 yes but not all engines dyno the same and so the small difference doesnt realy make a difference

    the formula will be faster if it has the 3.23 rear end
    if it has the 2.73 rear, the ram air should take it off the line.
    either way, it comes down to who gets a better launch
