Default race against a nissan altima 2.5S?

Ok so my boss at work owns a 08 Nissan altima 2.5S coupe with CVT transmission. He says his car will smoke mine. He doesn't have any mods, all stock. I only got exhaust, intake, an short shifter. We plan to hit the track once he gets his license back. I really think I can take him but we will have to see.

This man is a fool haha.

His car weighs just over 400 pounds more than yours.

-Remove spare tire before race (dont let him see, so he doesnt remove his)
-Show up with only the amount of gas you need to race and get home etc. The less gas, the lighter you are.
-Remove any subs

Easy as pie...even without doing these things. Its a family car vs a coupe. Keep us updated

Mines manual, his auto with cvt trans which I consider is for people that can't drive manuals.

haha alright, ill see if i can get someone to record. i would like to try an see if i can get my guy with his Si an another guy who has a 5 speed caviler to come. for some reason my boss thinks his brothers cav can beat me to. we both got the same engine 2.4 liter, just i got some mods an the cav only gots CAI if im correct. so i would love to go to the track with them. i already know my guys Si will beat me. but aint nothing better then beating your boss an then go back to work an shove it in his face. he talks so much sh*t. but if i lose im probably going to feel stupid lol.

Gas yes. It'd be smarter to do it on half a tank or less. But taking your spare out is just ridiculous. The "weight loss" isn't going to help much when it comes to your spare. 20lbs is not going to make or break a race.

The cav is fast.. i owned one (my first car) but the tC is slightly faster. You should beat the Si off the line, but he will catch you in the longer race. I learned this while testing my car vs my buddy's acura the other day lol

Engine size doesn't always mean faster or same power.. it has to be put down well. And other specs play into it. The tire wont matter in a quick 1/4mi.

I have a 2.5L and I can eat the 6.0 GTOs. They'll catch me after a quarter but eh.

You should be able to take both, just not the Si.
