Arrow 78 corvette L82 vs 92 eagle talon tsi

ok so im crusin in my grandpas corvette today when my friend gives me a call he just got off of work and was looking for a race. im not gonna turn down a race so i drive aruond by my house waiting for him to get home. we meet up on one of the main roads near my house. the 1st race was from a about a 40 roll... 1,2,3 go he takes off and left me in the dust.. the old 3 speed automatic in my corvette is usless from a roll and he also as a 5speed he got about 5 cars on me and i didnt start to pull on him till about 90mph or so but the race was over befor it began... race #2 we both came to a stop and had about 2 miles of open road in front of us... 1,2,3 go we both take off it was dead even off the line mostly bc i had a little tire spin and his AWD gets him of the line real fast. he shifts to 2nd and pulls a nose in front of me the auto in the vette shifted to 2nd at the same time he went to 3rd gear and i made up the 2-3 foot gap but he he got it back when he shifted to 4th. once again we had identical shift times as he went to 5th and i went to 3rd and once again i made up the gap and started to pull i had about a 1 foot lead when we both shut down around 110 mph...

estimated specs on both cars
corvette - talon
v8 - I4 turbo charged
rwd - AWD
220hp - 205 hp
275ft/lb - 190ft/lb
3 speed auto - 5 speed manule

it sounds to me like your car can just not handle the talon. i mean, it may just be the driver and not the car..
