just a little curious

me and a buddy are going to be going to irwindale speedway tomrrow hopefully if we get off work in time.. but anyways my question is has anyone raced a stock bmw 328i? if so how did you do? i have an 07 cobalt ss/sc with 3" downpipe and 3" exhaust.. zzp dp and magnoflow exhaust... we have raced on the highway 60-120 and i pull him by about half a car but its pretty even at first untill i hit high 3rd and shift to 4th.. his is an auto with the tiptronnic thingy.. i was just wondering if in the 1/8 mile if im gonna lose just cuz he has rwd. and can launch harder than i can.. imo hes not the best driver.. but ive only launche my car 2-3 times..(off of a light) and my tires are about as bold as a cancer patient... so any hints on how i should do would be cool. or any tips on what rpm to launch at.. tire pressure etc.. thanks.. and if anyone wants to meet up there let me know be pretty sweet to race some other cobalts..

wouldnt really know from what im told the turbo is a ton faster. but i wouldnt know about the s.c never drove one but as far as i can tell yeah i love the turbo it throws ya back in the seat which is why i brought it really. dealership dude was driving it the first time i went to look at it i was like open it up some dont be sceeeerrrd. he did and my head flu back lol best ive done so far was 0-60 in 5.6 seconds . acording to my budys thingy magig lololol. cant remember what it was calld haha. im sure when i get more comfertible with it and get better with a standerd i could do a better time. he has a t/a with intake header exaust well kinda hahaha.. and i let him drive my car he said id kill his car so iuno haha.. but most all is the whistle of the turbo god that sound i love it haha i nail it in 2nd and then let off just to hear it constintly lol
