    If he's stock it won't be a race. From a roll or from a dig you'll beat him....roll race will obviosuly be closer but from a dig you'll do nasty nasty things to his go cart lol.

    Those cars suck for drag racing but they are exceptional performers when the road gets twisty :)

    guy in my area running around in a turbo S2000. You can't even tell until he gets on it then it goes. Its not riced out..no 8 inch cannon just a nice exhaust system. I think he said its slightly over 500rwhp...you never know what they have.

    Race him from a dig, you'll more than likely beat him.

    I love those little cars tho, they're the only 2-seater in their class that I like :D.. In fact, i'm going to go "test drive" one tomorrow at 3pm. Not to buy it of course, just that a good friend of mine is a saleswoman at the Honda Dealership and told me we could take it outflog the hell out of it (With the top down, of course).. I've always wanted to drive one of those cars just to see how they feel :D

    Is there cash on the line? Why worry about doing it and just do it. The worst that could happen is you lose, but I doubt that. Most people couldn't run good times in those because you have to beat the **** out of it to go fast. Stomp a mudhole in that overpriced toilet.

    When i had my 98 gt (catted xpipe,catback,cai,ud's) i raced my friend who has a stock s2000 and i raped him from a dig, but he did catch up once i hit third and started to pull on me. Race him from a dig and if you can drive you'll instantly put three or four cars on him and he'll be hard pressed to catch up.

    Ive raced one with intake and exhaust and had no problems from stops or otherwise. This was N/A too. You should take him easily.
