What are my chances against an R32?

Please don't think of a skyline, I mean a 2004 VW R32. My car has only I/H/E and is atx and the R32 is completely stock. I'm plan on going to the racelegal.com event this friday in San Diego and my friend will be driving his r32. I convinced him of giving a 1 sec head start. So what are my chances?? btw it is a 1/8 mile race.

holy crap. 3500lbs.

do the mtx swap first then you will win for sure with a 1 sec start

but with atx it will be close

btw they have 6.5 second 0-62

ummm..ur gonna get smoked. lol. they might be heavy but, they have awd and arent slow. if u had an svt or a manual ud have a lil better chance but, still ud get beat...seeing as the r32 driver isnt a bad driver.

Damn it! He is not unexeperienced, he comes from the honda world and by fortune I was able to talk him out on his last car purschase which was the r32. He only has like 2 weeks with the car so I could take that in my advantage. Any recommendations so I don't look like a comple looser (please don't say "don't race him")

That's true! hopefully I take that on advantage, but another thing is that my D-tec doesn't kick in (sorry I had to say it) until 32k rpm or so in the second gear, which is already like 5 seconds...
