    You probably have a good shot. I actually have an old Car and Driver magazine that tested your same year car and it hit 60 in 5.2 seconds, bone stock, it was however with a 6-speed not the auto-tran that you have. I think I read the Solistice GXP ran to 60 in about 5.5 seconds (pretty damn good for a convertible 4 banger!). Assuming your car is not beat up, it should be a close race to 60, and you'll probably pull away (like most LS1 engines) from there. Will definately, be an interesting race though, let us know how it goes!

    Ha ha thanks guys. i kinda figured i had him beat based of what i had read about them. but then he let some of my friends drive it one weekend and they all came back saying i'd get raped in a race. i guess now i'll put some money down on it.

    You should put money down on this race and then put money down on a race at a road course so he can win it back

    If he's bone stock, you shouldn't have anything to worry about....simply don't roast the tires on the launch and you'll be just fine!

    I'm confused....I don't own a Solstice, nor would I ever attempt to fit in one.
