    lol obviously because it happened lol--- I more or less wanted to know if it is a drivers race, or should I take any Automatic GTO 6.0.

    So did I win because I out drove him, or is my car "faster".

    id say transmission is the deciding factor. if u both had the same trannies itd be a driver's race, with u still having the edge.

    so u being a manual, having less powertrain loss and having a ton of a better launch than him.... it souds about right

    My life is a
    Ben Stiller movie.

    he probably spun like hell off the line. Those 6.0's are wicked fast.

    He probably was an idiot that tries to shift the auto manually that takes 2 seconds after you shift to shift and by that time it is ALL over the revlimiter.
    He should of pulled you in my experience with those cars. Your both on regular street tires?
    Don't be afraid of the bottle!!! Be afraid of your tune!!!

    yeah both street tires.

    I spun off the line, but not too bad, I don't know if he spun or not.

    He did have some heavy ass 18 inch bling bling chrome wheels.

    He said his car feels kinda slugish thru 1st 1/2 of first gear, but really opens up after that. (Sounds like a typical auto transmission car)

    I'll be getting into this same race soon. A buddy of mine got a 05 GTO auto recently and he wants to run me. He put exhaust on it, but that's it so far.

    Not bickering what so ever.

    I simply wanted to know if the outcome was typical, or was it me being a stellar driver.

    Facts: Race= 1/8 mile: I drive M6 02 WS6 w/ SLP air lid; He drives 6.0 GTO LS2 Automatic -- I won by about 2 car lengths. ( I just confirmed w/ my brother, a "car length is bumper to bumper. .meaning if his nose was at my rear bumper I had 1 length with that being said I had easily 2 car lengths on him.)

    My question was -- was that the likely outcome. Or did I "outdrive" him.?

    Seems like some people say the outcome sounds right, some say He had to be "an idiot" or burned his tires all thru first for me to win.

    So which is it?

    What does Motor Trend say,, their numbers are usually pretty fair I think?

    I have always thought that MT numbers were optimistic. They use a correction factor. Have you ever read the corrections in HP Pontiac? They take one of the drivers best runs and then "correct" it to perfect weather and sea level. Amazing how much the numbers "improve":
    2 examples:
    13.89 @ 99.72 to "13.22 @ 104.77" ('01 Grand Am GT,supercharged)
    11.73 @ 114.58 to "11.17 @ 120.38" (455 '69 Firebird)
    I prefer to see what they actually do. I think 4.7 to 60 MPH is optimistic, to say the least, for the '05 GTO.
    I would say you did a good drive on him, but he may have caught you by the end of a 1/4.
