No bolt-ons and you should probably beat him
you should do some research before saying an auto sucks for racing. look at the new gtr, auto tranny and its race track ready off the lot. ask trubo tom about his turbo'd ford focus with an auto.

about beating the 240sx, have fun catching up. if he already has parts into it and knows your trying to become faster then him there is a good chance he will just keep modding so that you will never be faster.
