according to road tests posted online, the manual version is good for low 14's at about 100mph in the 1/4. it would eat your car

No u wont... A 350z hr pulls about a car and 1/2 on it till 60ish. A 350z hr pulls busses on my svt...

Those modd u listed are good for what? 8-11whp? So if he pulled 3 on u already expect him to pull 2ish now...

Imo u do the honking till 3 then pull on the 2nd honk ;) hell prob catch up anyways

^^^^ this, hahaha. i like the pull on second idea. the driver is also a tad new to driving this thing. im gonna still try, do the mods listed, and prob gut the car first and see how close. i can beat him in the E30, but i really wanna put him down with the focus. it would be alot more embarassing for him.
