My advice? If you don't want to lose to him, then don't race him.

Even the non-supercharged Saleen S281 is faster than your run-of-the-mill Mustang GT. Plus, you said you have an automatic tranny coupe with 20" chrome wheels? Sorry, but you're toast, unless the Saleen driver can't drive for his life.

I would say that you probably won't take him. Even though Saleens are overrated, it is still going to be putting about 270 to the wheels. When I had my old Cobra, I dynoed next to a Supercharged S281 and he only put down 320 to the wheels. I was unimpressed. Especially with your 20's, I would think you won't win. Give it a shot though. Just my $.02.

Saleens are not overrated. My friend's stock 2000 S281 SC runs 4.7 0-60 and 1/4 mile in the high 12s. they are fast. And 320 to the wheels isn't bad for a car that is supposed to put 365 to the crank.

Yes they are. Too much for the money. A 2003-04 cobra would whoop either saleen, and would run even with a 281 extreme. I should know, I've raced them all. Plus it has IRS. 2 valves per cylinder vs. 4. Not worth the money.

For you to even have a chance, I would take off those HEAVY 20inch rims and put back on the lighter stock ones. And, I would do an ECU reset before the race.
