Will i win?

i posted a similar post in the zetec forum but i have a 5 speed zx3 with AEM CAI, FC long tube race headers, FC flex pipe, FC exhaust, FC 65mm TB , FC UDP kit and Steeda Short Shifter. With these mods do you think i can beat my friends 97 Audi A4 2.8 Quatro 5 speed with no mods (172 HP) i think the all wheel drive will give me trouble. And also a 99 cougar V6 5speed with no mods (170 HP) wants to race me. Do i stand a chance against these 2 cars?

A 99 civic DX with AEM CAI, exhaust and short shifter wants to race me too but i dont think i should have trouble with him. wat do u think?

The audi will eat you for sure....the launch you can get with AWD is amazing. The cougar will come down to drivers probably: He probably still has a better hp/lb ratio than you but you might get him.

Get some cams and an SCT chip and you aill have a better chance.

What he said.

With the Audi there is no way. I've been against some V6 Cougars and I wasn't really impressed. You might have a chance.

The V6 cougars aren't that quick. You could take him provided you have the skills to pay the bills. This is what you do though. If he wins and you guys are just racing light to light...just run right into him and call it a day.

The only thing with the cougar I would think about is that with it's better torque, it would have a serious advantage from a roll-on vs. a standing start.

Quick tip. Invite them to an autoX and smoke them all...

I knew those Audi's were slow! 2 years ago this guy said his A4 Quattro would run circles around my ex-bosses 99 Cobra. We both knew the outcome and tried convincing the guy that he'd get his butt handed to him. The only way that car would have run circles around it is if it was stopped!
