2001 zx2 vs 2005 zx4?

In a drag race,who would win? My son asked me this today. His car is a 2001 zx2 auto tranny,bone stock. My car is a 2005 zx4 5 speed 2.0 with steeda SRI and copper plugs.I told him me because I am the older,better driver!! Too bad there isn't a drag strip within a 2.5 mile drive away from here.

If both were bone stock... the zx4 would assuming you can shift right because the zx2 auto tranny is a slush box and isn't really that fast... But if the zx2 had a 5speed my money would be on it...

The zx2 is with a 5speed is:

a) a little lighter.
b) the same tranny as the zx4 but shorter geared which if used right can be better on a drag strip.
c) has VCT so the tourqe band peak is bigger
