3.4L vs 3.8L Battle

Well today on my way home from school I was in the highway and doing about 65 and I pass this really nice red 96' Camaro RS (BTW I didnít even think about racing him) Anyways as soon as he saw me next to him he step on the gas and by the time I step on it he was already 2 cars ahead well I follow him from behind because only the fast lane was free but I was catching slowly to him but I didnít have chance to change lane. And finally the road was all free so I move to the outside lane and him on the inside one and the middle was free too and we where doing about 90 at that point and about 110 I got a about 1 1/2 cars ahead of him but I had to stop because there were cars ahead. Anyways I pass him and that what counts

Sure but u came here gas is too expensive to go overthere
BTW I think the RS was stock I just saw it had dual exhaust. Well I have race other 3.8ís before and I have lose but never so bad
And this is the first time that I race with open cutout so maybe that help me alittle
and it wasnt easy it was really even race

well if you raced on about a 20 foot track you'd win. in my old, old 3.4, the green one, i raced my friends 3.8. since 3.4s have 3.23 gears as opposed to the 3.8's 3.08s (unless its a Y87) the 3.4 will get it off the line.

Oh I didnít know they were different and yep I have notice that when I race 3.8L I always beat them in the start but they catch up to me at about 1/8 of mile.
I donít think I will beat a 3.8L in 1/4 Mile but I havenít been at the track in so long so I donít know what my car is running now. (D*** I remember does days at the track that was Fun!)
But in this case i beat him when we were already at high speed.

my friend has a 3.4 firebird and it is pretty even but im always that little bit ahead and it just grows but i think the biggest difference is that i have a stick and he has an automatic.

makes sense, a manual is not faster than an auto (usually is slower since it slows when you shift an auto can accelerate sooner since it shifts many times faster than any human can)
