you can tip the odds in your favor with the tried-n-true "hey, what the hell is that!?"...then saying 'go' when the guy looks the other way... :rolleyes:

Empty the trunk of all junk, take out the spare & have less than half a tank of gas. Each gallon of gas weighs 7 lbs. That will give you the invisible advantage. Good luck kicking his ass!!

Doode, My dad owns a 98 Intrigue. Is there different engines in them? I forgot what specs it is. Well, when i got my 97 trep, I was pretty sure he would beat me if we raced. But with my mods, I would probably beat him. That is definately a drivers race for sure, I think it will go back and fourth as you 2 prgress through the gears.

that should be a very close race, judging by specs. if he isnt a good driver you should be able to take him.

I can answer some of that.
The Intrigue is frount wheel drive, engine mounted transversley [different from ours]
And, it is a 4 speed. One advantage is that the Automatic shifter has 1 2 3 O N R P on it, O being overdrive [obviously] so they can shift through the gears almost like the autostick. almost.
Ive never got used to driving the Intrigue, I dont like it kause its too easy to drive, no feedback. So, I have no clue weather the tranny is set up to be better.

Good luck doode, I wanna know the outcome!!

i can answer this cuz I own an Intrigue....They are nice cars, but the 3.5 powered ones need A LOT of room to stretch their legs (all top end)..........but the 3800 Intrigues will put the smack down on a lot of unsuspecting folks, even though (stock)they have 20hp less than the 3.5
