I've seen a few people running later model GTP's at the track and they are very quick, but there are a lot of factors in this race. His car is a bone stock 98? If thats the case, you have to take in consideration that the car is 11 years old and it's not going to be making the same power it did when it rolled off the assembly line. You would also have to factor in how well it's been maintained and if it's lived an abusive 11 years or not.

Then you have to question the drivers ability. Contrary to popular belief, there's more to running an automatic down the track, than just punching the gas and letting her rip.

I would say race him as is. So what if you lose. If you can't afford to lose the cash ,then you shouldn't be putting it on the line.
