according to road tests posted online, the manual version is good for low 14's at about 100mph in the 1/4. it would eat your car

No u wont... A 350z hr pulls about a car and 1/2 on it till 60ish. A 350z hr pulls busses on my svt...

Those modd u listed are good for what? 8-11whp? So if he pulled 3 on u already expect him to pull 2ish now...

Imo u do the honking till 3 then pull on the 2nd honk ;) hell prob catch up anyways

^^^^ this, hahaha. i like the pull on second idea. the driver is also a tad new to driving this thing. im gonna still try, do the mods listed, and prob gut the car first and see how close. i can beat him in the E30, but i really wanna put him down with the focus. it would be alot more embarassing for him.

I have those mods you listed on my D20 & my car does 15.9, so if it has heavy rims and an auto, it could be a driver's race. A header and a motor mount might get you even with him.

I doubt it would account for a whole second.. Unless he's missing shifts it's not going to be pretty... Our cars aren't meant for straight line racing.. The design don't fit it... Sure you can make it a 10sec car with money and lots of boost but if you really want to unleash the potential.. Autocross is where it's at.. Now if your hell bent on straight racing... Save 1000 bucks.. Get a nitrous kit and tune... That will eat him up.. I know you want to beat him right now... But the only way ull win.. It's if he is a piss poor driver.... And oh yea.. Keep it on the track peeps!

All u have to do is bang his gf in ur car... That should be embarrassment enough.

Don't you race other cars also? If you get him great, if not move on to the next car at the line. Whats your rection time? 6o' time?

He doesn't have to make up a full second. He said the guy beats him by like 3 car lengths. The eclipse is probably a mid 15 second car because of the huge rims and the autotragic tranny. So, I'm gonna say, yeah, some more mods and you can be right there with him.

i have a 8.45 0-60 best as of now. im still practicing my launch. but the reason for him is because he is a co worker... I am trying to get him to button willow for a track day, but i am nervous of his driving ability in anything other than a strait line, plus strait line is alot cheaper to run. thanks guys for the feed back. im still optomistic. i have a second 2.0 block at home im considering trying to find a 2.3 head for, and then try and get crazy on that. im still not sure. i got a whole other truck project that im spending most the money on right now trying to wrap it up. that will beat the c**p outa him, but i want to prove a point in the focus, ya know?
