Question Racing question

My girlfriends brother is a total jerk to me and always makes fun of me and my SVT. I don't mind getting ragged on but when you talk about the focus....its gotta stop. Well he drives a Dodge Stealth ES(not sure year)with an intake(K&N). They show up to 164 hp i think but thats all I know. If i race him, will the SVT dominate and shut him up?

you should be able to take him, is it and automatic or manual tranny, plus the stealth weights alot more than we do, if it helps i took out an dodge stratus r\t with a manual tranny

First read this link very carefully: http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/s...04#post1041704

You can find more info about the stealth here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dodge_Stealth

He has an ES which is the lower end model, you might have a chance but I have no idea how fast they are, if I had to guess I woudl say about the same as an SVT.

As for the higher end versions of the stealth and 3000GT, you dont stand a chance with a stock SVT!

You'll kill him the stealth is a heavy slow bot unless it's the r/t. Plus the fact that it's an suto makes it even worse. He probably has the fwd 4 cylinder that can't even get out of it's own way. I'd say even if he had exhaust and an intake you'll still take him in the svt. Just make sure you get your launch and don't miss a shift, you'll take him easy.
