Sell your a*** for a night to raise the coin needed to buy and install a nitrous kit, and keep it under your hat.
Should give him a shock.

take out your sub/spare wheel n whatever else you have removable.
It should be pretty even, and like you said I'd expect it to jump you off the line, but the commo auto's arent too flash, but by the time your at the top end of 1st you should be in front, and pulling away slowly.

was that with all your extra weight of sub n spare? Really you should have just passed him at 100. did you stall it up (well as much as you can ), or just boot it from idle?

Reduce the pressue in your tyres a bit, take em down to like 26psi, will reduce your wheels spin and help keep on the track.

yeah that was with everything in my boot, aswell as 2 of my mates, where he ad an empty ute tray and only one passenger, n he was only just infront, i didnt stall it up that time either.

also 26psi? u sure? that seems pretty low

Ash scaffy and XH5LWPN, but Im pretty sure last I was at Woopass with em, they were both around that level, just head to the servo right around the corner there on the front, they got a digital air unit, so easy to do before you race and go back and fill em up after ward
