My reaction time was slower as I got off a little late (was my very first time dragging) at 0.45 while his was 0.24.

I actually beat him to 60 feet though. I got there in 2.4 while he did it in 2.6

But yeah, if my power hadn't dropped off once it got into the higher gears, I probably could have taken him. We'll see if the header and tune can help with that much.
No, you could not have taken him. 82mph vs 100mph in the 1/4 is a big difference in power. You'll need nearly twice the power you have now at the same weight. No I'm not joking.
