    my ws6 vs formula mods

    Well my buddy has a 94 built formula. He just got it rebuilt about a month ago with heads, a mild cam, ignition, and full bolt ons. Its an A4 with 373 gearing i believe. We raced from a 20-25 roll in 1st gear, he honks and we take off, its pretty even through 1st but when i shift to 2nd i pull on him hard, then pull more in 3rd, by 4th i have like 6 car lengths in front of him. I have external full bolt ons and a lid. His car needs a tune and so does mine. But i cant believe i beat him that badly. Are ls1's that much faster than lt1's?

    I beat an lt-1 (m6) that had a cam and exhaust (me a4 w/ bolt-ons) I think a tune is really killing him, I don't know why he would race it like that.

    good way to foul plugs running a cam with no tune

    thats kinda sounds about right to me...isn't a lt1 formula a mid to low 15 second car to beging with?

    My 1993 Z28 was running funky and still pulled 14.35. Same basic thing as a Formula.
