    You're probably making only a little less power than he is, and you're a couple hundred pounds lighter. I'd say it'll be a driver's race.

    ...Then again, I don't know what "bench racing" is, so nevermind.

    You will have the advantage from a dig. Goats are mean from a roll!

    i dont know about a write up, but all you do is drop your rear end a few inches, take out your springs and on top of the coil springs there is a lil damper thingy. it just falls out. then take your springs to vatozone or any parts store and get some heater hose to slide on to the top of your springs. i think it is like 5/8's or something. dont put the lil damper thingy back in but use the heater hose in place of it. reassemble everything and it will lower your rear and make it even with the front. its like a .5-.75 inch lowering job for 5 bucks

    hm, exept it doesn't work when the car is lowered with Lowering Springs... (I know it happened to me)... and honestly I don't really like the way it looks with the rear basicly saggin all the time...


    anywho... Just race the dude, and post up the results no shame in being beaten and posting... I've done it

    You will win. I fendered one in my GT 3 races in row, and you should be making more power than me.
