so this kids mom lets him drive around her trans am every once in a while. it has the ws6 package and its an automatic. ontop of it this kid cant drive for ****. hes saying it has the "corvette engine" with 410 hp when i know its just an ls1 which dont get me wrong is still a killer engine.

after looking farther into it i came across this article
2000 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am WS6 - First Drive & Road Test Review - Motor Trend

the article stated that the trans am put down a 13.5 in the quarter mile. (320hp/345ft-lbs) i thought that the trans ams had alot better numbers than these especially the 1/4 time. With my car after i get my 555rs and gears/a tune could i possibly beat him with some good driving? any other inexpensive recommendations?

i know we all hear this all the time (all these scenarios) but it seemed like a good match to me plus id really like to shut him up when this summer comes.:D i hate when people drive around in their parents cars and try to show you up.:mad:

with him being in an auto and not driving it every day i would say maybe...its worth racing him now...the ws6 that is a 6 speed runs a 13.2 stock so make it an auto and factor in the driver error you have yourself a high 13...if your a good driver and can launch....you might have a shot in the dark...just dont try it on the highway...transam is aerodynamic and has a better top end motor...

most dirvers run them around 13.5 in the but with a good driver they have been into the upper 12s. i ran mine to 12.8 stock, and with those mods you stated, hes gonna walk you past 60 mph hard

i dont understand... how can someone not drive an auto trans am? all they have to do is press the peddle and steer.
maybe he drives a metro for a DD...thats a big switch, he wouldnt be able to launch for ****...like 3.8 60' time
