04 SVTF vs. 02 Stratus R/T

I have a friend of mine that ever since I have bought my SVTF has been wanting to race me in his 02 Stratus R/T. I dont know much about those cars but I do think they are pretty heavy. I think they have around 200hp but he also has a atx and its bone stock. So I was wondering should I be worried? I am also completely stock. With everything said do yall think I would win or lose??

Since hes got a heavy ride and an atx. I think you will walk on him. You got the lighter car and a 6 speed. And if you can drive. I think hes in trouble.

If you can drive I'll give it to you. But if you're like the other idjets that don't know how to find second gear (you know the one right below first) you'll have a problem.

The Stratus R/T weighs about 3200-3300 lbs.

I thought they came in a manualmatic? Either way, I think that you should be able to take it.

ManualMatic or not it doesn't allow you to have COMPLETE control of the vehicles shifting charecteristics. I believe they call it AutoStick. Your right though either way SVT stock should take him.

Yeah. I know. I use to have one of those cars. They have some power but the automatic sucks on it.

the manual tranny version goes 0-60 in 7.4 and the 1/4 goes by in 15.7

if he has an auto tranny you will probably win, but if your shifting sucks and you have TC he will beat you.
