Well me and my friends are going to race tomarow and im just wondering what are my chances of winning...

My opponents:
Mustang 3.8l v6
and
Maxima 3.5l v6

Both automatic, maxima tiptronic.

Me:
99 Passat GLS 5 Spd
1.8T
Exhaust System

What are my chances of beating them?

I mainly want to rock the stang , i dont really care about the maxima.

Thanks

assuming this is done in a safe envirolement we can safely assume that your chances are 20% or less depending on the other drivers experience.

I have same car you do and a 98 maxima and the maxima ripps the passat .. mainly cause it's got 50hp more.

On the other hand the mustang you might have a chance.. i remember my 2.0 golf kept up till 90mph.. but it was medium moded.

Good luck with that!

The Maxima will kill you. No one cares about a V6 Mustang. The police will arrest you all for street racing, too.

Do me a favor and stay off the roads as I'm on my way to and from work. I'd prefer to arrive in one piece.

If it is on a track, like doing laps (real racing you know), the Stang and Maxima are boats on wheels, so what you lose on hp, you will gain on handling.

i'd bet you lose to both but keep close to the 'stang. they have secret weapons (automatics) and if anyone has a chance to make a mistake it's probably going to be you (no offense).

how long is the race, to 60? 1/4 mile? what kind of tires do you have? i can see lighting them up or having ASR kick in if they're not up for the task...

a.s.
