Ok, so we just got out of band practice, and my friend is driving his mother's 96 Suburban, which has a 454 in it, putting out 300hp and 410ft/lbs of torque. This isn't just a claim, it's accurate. So we lined up in the schools parking lot (this was about an hour ago). We both launched and throughout the entire first race, I had him by a nose, although neither of us were gaining/pulling away. we lined up again, and again we both had decent launches, and again i had him by maybe 6 inches, but he wasn't gaining at all, it was just even. Now, I know I have Mad Vulcan Powah and all, but I thought for sure I was going to get my arse handed to me. I know he can launch well, because I sat in his car for a couple of runs and he showed me how he was brake torquing and launching, and it was the same as I would.
