Default Autocross Time but...which truck?

Sunday the 18th I plan on running autocross with one of my buddies on the runway of the Seneca Army Depot in Romulous NY but I have one small issue, which truck to run. So I turn to you fine people of InfamousNissan to help me figure this out.

Choice #1 is my Green truck.
-1995
-Stock KA24E w/ 5 Speed
-3.54 Gears H190 Axle
-Sway A Way Torsion Bars
-Moog and Energy Suspension Everywhere
-Hellwig Rear Sway Bar
-KYB Monomax Shocks
-Poly Bushings
-V6 Brake Caliper/Rotor Swap with Performance Friction Pads
-Brake Quip SS Braided Lines
-Lowered on 2" Blocks with Pulled Overload Leaf

Choice #2 (because it is a #2) is my Red truck.
-1991
-Stock KA24E with 250k+ and 5 Speed Swap
-Weapon R Intake
-1 Ton Heavy Duty Torsion Bars
-Moog and Energy Suspension Everywhere
-4.37 Gears H233b Axle with wonky LSD
-Apex Brakes SS Braided Brake Lines
-4cyl. Performance Friction Front Pads
-4wd Pathfinder Rear Brake Swap
-Lowered on 3" Blocks with Short Overload Leaf

Both run in the FSP class.

I used to run Green a bunch but haven't since 2016. Red I have only run once and that was last year so I will be happy either with either truck.

I will let Infamous decide which truck I run! I will let this run till Friday then I have to scramble to get the winner of this poll ready for Sunday.

The red truck should pull harder out of the corners with the higher ratio, but would probably suffer on the top end. I guess we need to know if the track has more corners or straight shots.

Last year i was on the same track with red and used too short of a tire. Its a runway we are racing on so I got slaughtered. If red wuns i will be using the taller rear tires.

My vote is for the green truck.

Side note. Check out the CNY SCCA schedule. We do a few autocross events at Pineview Run (a 1.1 mile road course in Lafayette NY). It is awesome. The next event at Pineview is the 25th. My truck won't be there but I will be.

I'm a big fan of old beaters (no disrespect) so the red one gets my vote. Hopefully that didn't make it a tie or anything lol.

Red for me. Just like the way it looks. It's meaner.

It's not a tie, it's close though.
