Red face 4.0 vs 98 GT - video coming soon!

Ok so my friend at work is going to race a 98 GT (5 speed, headers and x pipe, CAI) against my 2008 4.0 (also 5 speed, cutouts, CAI, 3.73 gears with T-Lok, off the shelf tune via SCT)

What should I expect...? lol I know there's a video on youtube of this but I'm putting together a more detailed video just to see how these cars compare (even though neither are really stock) in the 1/4 mile, we're going to have side view video coverage of the finish line and we'll run it 6 times, after the first three we will switch cars to make sure the results aren't stacked towards a better driver.

I'm nervous

I just figured I'd ask what to expect, anyone know what these mods on my 4.0 should let it do? I'm hoping to get the video made within the next few weeks.

Re: 4.0 vs 98 GT - video coming soon!

u def can hang with hime bro! idk about smoking him but u can def give him a run for his money! u have gears and posi tract which will make for a good launch (which i would master before race day)! hes not really that much faster than u! everybody knows the 96-98 gts were sad to say....well lets just say there not the fastest GTs! STCOK he comes with 225HP....yours came with 210 HP stock! now he does have about 40 lbs more torque than you! he has mods but u have more MORE! if i were u i would practice my launch and shifts! u might take him! keep me posted bro im personally interested in this one GOOD LUCK MAN

Re: 4.0 vs 98 GT - video coming soon!

98 gt's did get a slight bump in power, they should run 15.0's give or take (manual shave off a bit more) but that is STOCK and the 4.0 v6 is a low 15 second car easy high 14s with a good driver and a manual trans but... if its a street race its all in how gets off the line fast as its reaction time that matters.. in street racing its not the faster car that wins its the car with the best reaction time (most of the time)

Re: 4.0 vs 98 GT - video coming soon!

Yeah I'm going to have a small film crew and shoot this mofo in HD and get full coverage, today I raced a GT of the same style (could be 94-98 not sure) and it was no contest, from a roll of about 50 I pulled away pretty easily, he might have been auto though

Re: 4.0 vs 98 GT - video coming soon!

Well the problem is that I want to do the thing legit and do a full on video production but I have to wait for things to slow down at work so I can use the cameras and the editing suites etc, might be another week or so, but if it takes too long i'll just race the guy and tell everyone how I did, lol.

For the mean time though I beat a G35 coupe today, didn't smoke it, but I walked it with no issue. One more kill for the list...
