Hope ya didnt put money on it....

Provided they have both "worn" at the same rate, you'll be about a second or so slower in an 0 - 100 run ( when new its 8.1 v 9.2 )
Quarter mile, he should run 15.8 to your 16.8 ( when new ).

nah there was no money bet on it. we are frends. if it were a rolling start from 50km/h who would win??????

well a rolling start would probably be an advantage to the falcon, but i dunno how mr2s drive so i dunno who'd win.
If yor doing a rolling start, manually select gears so theres no kick down when u floor it

If the challenge has anything to do with turning corners, walk away right now lol
Around the track the MR2 will destroy it.

Its only for the trans.. holder gears longer, kicks down quicker and ups the line pressure for quicker shifts is about all it does.. well i am not 100% on the line pressure aspect..

leave it in power mode when u want to have fun.. you don't need to keep changing it on and off..

dan..

wen i take off with the power on it doesnt seem to give out that much more power but wen im going and turn it on and floor it i can notice it a hell of a lot.
