Also, if you are going to race for money, don't just do it on a street were people can cheat and you can run over somebodies cat. Go to a 1/8th mile (or 1/4 mile) drag strip and do it best timeslip outta 3 runs. That way you can redlight twice, or multch your clutch or whatever. Also, you may have more of an advantage on him in the 1/4 mile (over 1/8th mile), since you probably have a better power to weight but he could have more grip (is that cougar rwd?). Either way, good luck and don't shift till the needle reads 7000!!
