Oh ok man! Don't worry, if you have the same tires and better suspension mods you will catch him in no time! Just remember, "Smooth is always faster."
Just make all your shifts smooth, don't floor it in turns, don't shift in turns. If you do, rev match so you don't lock up your tires. Oh, learn how to rev match and Heel toe.
