Okay ... I am confused ...

Are you running your friend straight up or in cone attack battle (AutoX)?

Straight up ... he takes you hands down.

But in AutoX ... it's about the driver. If both of you haven't autoX, you may have a slight advantage in handling. But he would catch you with the TQ and power.

It's close. You should just run a regional AutoX with both of you and test your skills.

When I started at AutoX, there were 2 of these cars and I took one by about 2 seconds because he was new the other guy wasn't. I was fairly bone stock.

Oh, crap ... lol

I guess I was much more tired than I thought when I saw this.

Well, then ... where in the world is the verdict. I hate stories that leave us hanging.
