Interesting race against my girlfriend.

Ok, so, she has a 1995 Monte Carlo Z34, 210 horses, 215 torque, and on every website ive searched theyve all said that it runs a 15.4 in the quarter. Now, we lined them up tonight just for fun, both thinking we were gunna lose, and I won by over 2 car lengths. NOW...how am i beating a faster car than me? We're both auto, and the starts were exactly the same, no power-braking or anything, both a pretty much the exact same time. I DO however have that Y87 package, LSD, 3.42 gears, which i dont think was accounted for in the 15.7 E.T. 1/4 mile time for the 3.8. Also, ive got intake, and a muffler, which does like...nothing. But bottom line, I should have lost. Perhaps the 1/4 mile ET for her monte wa just wrong? Anyone else got any ideas?

Like the other said, gearing and the fact the Monte is FWD made a difference. Maybe she had wheel spin coming off the line too?

You guys are getting me mad. We both have auto. Both drove the same. The weight of the car should not have to do with ANYTHING if the car is supposed to run a 15.4 oh well maybe i'll ask the other boards. Or maybe the 1/4 mile times i read for the monte were just wrong...all 3 from 3 different sites.

maybe the car is not running at its full potential, something wrong, needs a tune up, etc, etc... you asked for ideas, they supplied 'em, don't get so pissy about it.

2 people in 2 different cars can't drive identical it's impossible, we are telling you rreasons for the difference, if you don't like the answers then whose the stupid one?It bothers me when someone asks a question then tells everyone who answers they are wrong.IF she floored it from a standstill it would spin the tires, the time you had may have been a farce, or a lower optioned car (you don't know how fast her car is based off someone elses car)swap drivers and see if you get the same result, rather than ******** that we can't pull an answer out of our asses

if it bothers you that much, then why are you here? And no, I'm not trying to start any crap, but I know if i was at a place and it bothered me, I'd just leave.
