    i might do the 3:73 gears i'm not real sure though. what is the rpm with the 3:42 do you know at 60?

    he's not that great but i think he might pull on me between 35-50 slightly but i think i'll catch up pretty quick after that and take the lead around 90-95 or so...

    you would be at about 1850 rpm with the 3.42 so you might as well go 3.73.
    Or just say fuck it and get 4.10s and cruise at 2300 rpm, depends on how much you wanna race vs how much highway

    It looks like it would work for you, i like the fact that it is GM too. I don't always trust ebay, and I would suggest talking to a sponsor as well of course. Summit has a set too for 135. But you can't really beat that price especially under the "buy it now" However it doesn't look like he has a return policy and it is "as is." He does have good feedback though

    just with my lid exhaust slp and bassani y pipe with, high flow cats and a tune and my car runs high 12s with 273 gears. There is no reason why u cant beat a mustang with 410 gears. You have more power and pull real hard with 273 gears at the top end.It should be your race.

    yeah but like we said it all comes down to how far they race and if it is from a roll or a dig

    stop light to stop light or from a dig I think he has you as you sit now,

    From a roll of 20-30 or for a 1/4 mile i think you got him

    yea.. do whatever you think is right, but IMO i would buy the ones from summit that are 135, thats what i was gonna do, but i got some 4.10s from a friend.

    I don't know about the material difference but at least it isn't something someone made in their garage (supposedly). I would just worry about not having a return policy, any good seller has a return policy of some kind

    If you're accurate in your assessment of his car, you should kill him from a roll.

    From a stop, if he hooks he's going to kill you out of the hole. You probably won't catch up by the 1/4.

Thanks for your time sorry again about the post just really wanted to know what you guys think.

    A stock 2000 GT is about 220 RWHP, intake and cut out will give him at the most 235 RWHP and thats being real generous. If he can hook with the 4.10's he will keep up with you off the line or pull on you a bit but id still doubt that the A4's if you know how to pedal it will take off decent. You will start to easily pass him above 80+ mph and should have no issues winning the race. Honestly for all the crap talking he is doing he is gonna need alot more then what he's got on his car to be able to beat you and is for a rude awakening.

    Remember too that if you race from a roll, your car will take a split second to downshift, and he will be in the correct gear, ready to go. I would probably do it from a dig, hold the brake with your left foot and push on the gas some with your right (dont powerbrake it though!), and hope he spins some. 4:10's can be tricky and he could either get too excited and spin too much, or be too scared to spin and bog it down off the line. Thats just my opinion though. Anxious to hear the outcome, but I'll bet on you.

    just make sure you are in third and not drive. That was you will downshift and use all the clutch pacs. then depending on how far you race you can just up shift to drive.
