ok here's the deal this kid at my school heard my car after school last week and he said its weak and he wants to race me in his dads Z06 but i said no i want to race his supposed 350 HP 1988 corvette my car is stock for now and i have money to get mods i just need to know which ones so i can shut this kid up...i already know how to drive the SRT-4 to its potential and i think i can outdrive him but i dont know what his mods are so just go from what you think a 350 HP '88 vette can do and what i need

Whatever you do, I hope this takes place at a track!

This is what I would do.....
1) Stage 1
2) 3" 02 housing back exhaust
3) AGP WGA

That will get you about 250 whp & 280 wtq.

If you are loaded, then ditch that idea and go straight for a big turbo kit!

Have you ever been to Slot car marks. I saw you live in canton.

Just make sure you race at a track.

No, you don't... nobody, and I mean nobody who uses this forum can drive the SRT-4 "to its potential". Some, a very select few, may be close (in a straight line), but I am certain you are not one of those people.

That said, tell me, Why is it important to you? Hopefully you aren't like that other kid in "Back to the Future" that could be made to do anything just by calling him "Yellow". It got him in a lot of trouble....

Actually, this could be fun... I'm "calling you out". I'll even race you in a first generation automatic transmission 4 door Neon with a headgasket leak that I bought for $950 and haven't put a dime into it since.... I'm a callin you out partner, are you Yellow?

haha no its not like that its just this kid thinks he is all that and his car is the best and i hate people like that and if i cant drive it to its "potential" then i can drive it pretty darn good or at least that is what everyone tells me. but anyways what would i need in just normal mods to beat this kid and yes it will be at a track

I'm serious... I'm calling you out, and I'm gonna stomp your ass with a first gen Neon with over 125,000 miles on the original timing belt...

How much money do you have for mods? And if hes actually got 350 hp then you do what you have to but also know this. A brand new zo6 ,correct if I'm wrong caz i prob am, makes 400 hp-420 hp and runs like 12.5-6s in the 1/4 mile. So you know this Vette at best is prob a mid 13- high 12 sec car. You say your a better driver than this kid, well you better have a little bit of money. You need stage 1 or 2(if you have the money), apg wga , slicks or drag radials and you should beat him right bout there. Theres a few other things you might want like 3" turboback exhaust or a 3" maxxfab downpipe. Maybe a mopar sts and I know with this you'll smoke this kid. Thanks Tim
