    Video of my bolt on Vert SS vs my Turbo Escalade ESV fastest in the world!

    So I finally put my built transmission back in THE BEAST last week and chained down the front end (being AWD I was just blowing the front wheels off) in preparation for her maiden voyage down the 1/4 mile.

    Last time at the 1/8 mile track THE BEAST went 8.35 @ 84.5 mph (Video: My 6,200 lb Escalade running low 8s. - Camaro5 Chevy Camaro Forum / Camaro ZL1, SS and V6 Forums - Camaro5.com). On the next run she broke the forward sprag in the trans.

    I wasn't too interested in running a new fastest time in Ginger so I didn't really prep her for the track. All I did was throw the track wheels on, she had almost a full tank and all kinds of junk in the trunk. The DA was horrible and Ginger couldn't hook on the couple of runs she did, but I really only took her so I could line her up next to THE BEAST!

    I am always on different forums and I have not any other fast Escalade ESVs. I have only seen ONE faster Escalade at 11.9 @117 but that was a new body style 2007 regular short twin turbo Escalade. I guess no one races the really long ESVs.

    They also had the scales working. Ginger tipped the scales at 4,250 lbs and THE BEAST was a hefty 6,015 lbs.

    Here is a few videos and pics. On the first video cut to the 13 minute mark to see the race.

    Sweet videos but you seriously need to work on your reaction time.
    The above post is my 2 cents....nothing more.
