my buddy has an 86 MR2, with a K and N intake, NGK spark plugs/wires, and i believe he has forged pistons (he was talking about them and possibly got them) and i saw this guy driving down the street, we'll call him Joe. I trailed him, passed him up and signaled for him to follow, he did.
We got to the end of a street, no cars coming, and from a dead stop, we launched on the third honk.
I built the revs up to about 2.25k, and didn't dump the clutch, but released it on feel.
1st gear- we're pretty much dead even
i grab 2nd, i start to pull ahead of him by maybe 1/4 car length, then he grabs 2nd. and gains about 1/2 car length on me. I ride 2nd to about 6k, maybe a smidge bit more, then into third. At this point in time, he's still in 2nd, and hits VVT is going hard. He gets into third, and pulls away on me by about a car length and a half.
Now, although i had "Somewhat of a chance", i believe that if he knew how to drive the car a bit better he would've had me from the get go, BUT, nonetheless he has a 1.6 litre engine as do we aveo drivers. And i just wanted to see how they'd hold up together.
