Stay away from all those engine treatment swindles. If you're maintaining your car correctly and it's running fine that's about it. There's no magic formula that's going to make it a supercar. If you want more power, you'll have to modify the engine.

the launch makes a really big difference. he may just be a better driver than you. also, if you have your a/c on your car will be slower.

tires
moisture
surface

just about anything could be a factor. the guys who win are usually the best prepared.

all you can do is practice.

there's more you can do to make it faster:

header
cat back exhaust
pulley
plugs and wires
street/strip clutch
lightened flywheel
cai
etc...
