You may remember me posting about racing one of these a couple of weeks ago. Well this wasn't my buddy that I was going to race this was a guy I work with. He asked me if I wanted to race before we left work...I was like sure. Well we raced a little through town (kinda playing) till we got out of traffic. We rolled up to the perfect situation. A red light just turned red and we lined up side by side. I said wanna race to the next light...he said sure. We sit and wait for the green light. He revs the truck up to where he wants to launch and I did the V the same way. The other light was a little less than 1/4 mile down the road.

So the light turned green and we both lost traction but not to bad. I got about 1/2 a car length on him at the launch and when I snatched it back into 2nd I had about 1.5 car lengths on him. I hit 3rd for just a second when I had to slow down for the next light. He pulled up and said...."Well you got me". I had at least 2 full car lengths on him when we had to stop. :thumbsup:

Guys I didn't get the perfect launch and I can tell you I pulled away from the beginning without trouble. As a matter of fact I knew I had him so I went to 2nd at about 5000 RPMs…didn’t even need to get it in the 6000-6500 RPM range. :D I would have continuously pulled away faster and faster if we had more road...but we had enough to convince us both. My guess is I was up to about 95 MPH before I had to back off because of the next light!

His truck is bone stock. I was proud...that thing has 500 HP…it’s pretty bad ass! :yup:

Nice run.

It was a fitting reward for the aggravating, knuckle-busting process of intalling the headers. Not that the everyday sound of a header-equipped LS6 isn't reward enough!:thumbsup:

Great Kill!! You all are very lucky to have friends who have these cars to race against. Also the ability to modify the V. Keep up the stories so I can live vicariously through you! :thumbsup:

Thanks guys! I think it was a pretty good kill. I know it's a truck but it's probably my best kill yet. I think it's the fastest production truck ever. Thanks again!

2 door. Also he is most likely one of the best drivers I know. He used to race professionaly. I have known the guy for 6 years. This guy is 45 and really knows what he is doing! Thats what made me feel so good!!!
