Whoa, slow down there big dogg!!! I think I see some light under that front tire. Just joking, I'm sure you had a great time. I'm trying to sell my fairly well modded LS1 ram air Formula that runs low 12's in the 1/4. Let me know if you want to get back into the game.

Fine looking truck you have there.
9.4 ain't bad.

Laughing..... you can tell I have never been there. :D
Guessed it with only that tiny bit of track to see.

10.4 is damn good. I'm guessing 2wd? My EXT went 10.76 @ 67.3mph 2.45 60' with the '07 22s. I put the stock wheels back on and went 10.36 @ 69.9 2.35 60'.

ESV = AWD...just like your EXT. Whats your altitude, Jon? Thats make a difference and here in TX we are pretty much at sea level.

JonCR96Z

Roughly 500' above sea level. Can't imagine your much lower than that. Just seems odd that SUX2BU had the same 60' and MPH, but he's .3 quicker? I didn't spin that bad either. Don't know the DA but it was a 90 degree day in October. Raceweight of 6020 lbs.

Must have been a big cam, they were mid 14 seconds stock.

Don't doubt. His car went 11.0 with bolt ons, which is not the norm but not totally unheard of. Raceweight played a big part, I believe.

And I would say the average is mid-high 13s stock. A handful went 12s, with perfect conditions.

I had a lot of Z06's that had trouble doing 11.0's with bolt ones.

that is pretty damn quick considering the weight involved.....

got a starter tune in my bride's '08 and at the DFW Charity Racing League event at Northstar it almost took out a 5.3 extended cab with big H/C package, LTH's full bolt ons and a cutout, with tranny mods, stall and gears.....

it went:
2.33 60'
9.74 @ 73.14

and the relative DA was 4400+.....that is worth -.3X in the 1/8th and more mods and better tuning on the dyno with a wideband and i'll have this stupid thing doing 8's.....just rediculous.....but fun for her to enjoy and just floor people watching this MONSTER SUV take out cars....fairly quick stock cars at that.....

get that thing back to the track i love it......my real toy is another SUV so it is kind of a running joke in our circles with the FAST SUV thing.....mine has made a best pass of 7.13 in the 1/8th and it is still WAY OFF on the nitrous.....

EDIT: a few pics of my toy at KCIR for the TBSS national meet

Z06 = 6 speed That's the problem right there. They might have more power but his car is lighter, automatic and setup to run the 1/4. Corvettes aren't the drag cars that f-bodys are.

Those L92 trucks are monsters. And evidently so are TBSS's on the gas.

well i kinda CHEATED there....LME LS7 bored to 4.135 and stroked to 4.100 making it a LS7 441ci with LPE CNCed L92 top end and a 100 shot from a nitrous dave plate........built trans, 3200 stall and more and more and more....you know how it is.....how fast do you want it....well with every 1000 pounds you add i swear the price of speed doubles with every 1000 lbs.

it makes believers out of alot of people......had gearing issues....the taller gear is back in and looking for 130ish trap speeds soon.........not bad for 4875 race weight...100% Stock interior and weight....ditched the spare tire but it is visible from the back so it is as much a visual mod....

BUT GET THOSE LADES TO THE TRACK I LOVE......go spank some cars.....make some more believers.....

Stock for stock the Z06 is about 300 lbs lighter, stick to auto makes a difference for sure

His car weighed <3000 with him in it.

Then it was far from stock. ;)

Well he didn't say stock he said cam only. I would say far from safe too but he drove it everyday.

Actually my car was only an auto during the "bolt on only" times. After i threw the cam in it i went back to the 6 speed. It was just more fun. without me in the car it weighed in at about 2700 lbs.
Freemasson your truck is sick! I almost got a TBSS but just didn't like driving them for some reason. just seemed weird. Woulda been alot faster than the Lac, though.
My goal for the ESV is to get it Stock LS1 fast. i think my car completly stock went 13.4 in the 1/4.
