Both cars weigh about the same (3320lbs) and have similar hp, so I think its on the driver, but I think you could actually take him if you hold your gears long enough.

It depends on how much his car weighs.

Is his car FWD or AWD?
Are you talking about racing from a stop or from a roll?

If it's AWD and going from a dig, chances are he'll hook up better off the line. From a roll, I think you'd pull a bit. Either way it's on the drivers.
