Datsuns are known for (a) dripping oil on the clutch plate and (B) disintegrating into little brown heaps of rust, so--wait another couple years and your friend's Datsun will be dusted. Also, I'm not familiar with Datsuns of that vintage, nor your Subaru--but weight would seem to be on your side, and I believe?? the 180B was rear wheel drive. So you should have two significant advantages there. (Where he might have better handling, you'd definitely have better traction and straight-off-the-line acceleration. This is purely speculation.)

rear wheel drive is better for drag racing, usually better for handeling and just about anything else you can think of. FWD is better in snow though.
