Stage 2 GTi vs Mazda 3 MPS with custom cobb tune

I have a rolling road session in the next few weeks and a drag day mid august.

I have approximately 280 bhp while he is expecting to be just over 300bhp.

I have DSG and a slightly lighter car..he has no lift shift which may even out the playing field.

Mods are in my signature, and his mods list from what i can remember are:

Trans/engine mounts, cobb etune, aftermarket top mount ic, HPFP and possibly a forge dump valve.

What are my chances of beating him?

Based on specs alone, looks like a toss up.

In my personal experience, I ran a cobb tuned MS3 when I was stage 2 pre v2, I had one passenger, he was alone, and it was dead even. I don't know if he was canned or custom, but my guess is probably canned.

The v2.X file is a little more stout, so if I had been on that, and didn't have a passenger, my guess is that I would have pulled on him a couple cars. If he was custom, probably would have been back to being pretty even.

Just my opinion.

From a roll you should be fine unless he is on e85, from a dig whoever has the best traction and the MS3 is known for horrible torque steer.

This is on the 1/4 mile drag strip we going to race. Not often we have a chance on empty motorway to have quick pulls at each other.

Hopefully I can take him on the day despite him having more power.

What are good tyres? I have the eagle F1 ass3.
