Re: aww crap im gonna LOOSE!

Make sure you make it apparent that you are sure you'll lose beforehand. Then you won't lose as much face.

And do some doughy's or something afterwards...

Re: aww crap im gonna LOOSE!

put in a bottle of octane booster and advance the timing before you race to give you a bit more grunt, and adjust the kick down cable so the box changes harder.. but i dont know if that will work for up changes or just down gears, or if it will make any difference at all ???

Re: aww crap im gonna LOOSE!

Probably not gonna help you much but try and get your car as light as possible. Take out the spare tyre and jack is a good place to start, don't have too much fuel in the tank. Also if you fluke a good start and are in the lead at say 60kph just jump on the brakes and say you won
