if you have same engines with same mods exactlety it should be close...if your both stock then you are definately evenly matched. is it autos or sticks?

without some quantitative measurement of performance, there's really not much we can tell you. do you change your oil regularly? tranny fluid? spark plugs? wires?

could also be how it was broken in. i think i got on mine too early and i just don't seem to have the same speed as people that have nearly the same mods.

break-in time, driving habits, maintenance, type/grade of fuel, leaks (air, fluids), filters (oil, tranny, fuel), additional weight (McDonalds gets ya), day of the week the cars were made and I'm VERY sure there are ALOT more variables that can answer the initial *performance question*
