My R/T is a Killa!
 
This may not seem impressive to some of you folks who think a Silverado SS is outdated, but I raced and beat a Silverado SS twice tonight. I have raced him a few months ago before I started modding my truck and he beat me pretty bad. He runs a 9.56 1/8 mile where I live, and he can beat stock Tundras. He has an intake, and straight pipe exhaust with turn downs. My mods are listed in my sig.

So, after modding my truck and learning to launch it with the help of some forum members who told me not to stall it, I can now beat him by about 4 truck lengths. I beat him even in launching, which really impressed me considering he has AWD and my posy was spinning! The power these trucks put to the ground is amazing :D

I let the truck shift by itself, and I forgot to turn the traction control off and the tow/haul mode on. So I still have a few tricks up my sleeve in case he mods his SS more and wants to race again!

Nice kill man! I know how fast those SS's are.

I remember the first SS I raced...kicked my booty, now i wish I could race one now...

Those SS trucks are tricky, and easy to underestimate since they only have 345 HP. But with 4:10 gears and AWD, they are actually pretty fast.

He seemed surprised that I beat him this time, but he was cool about it. He said he loved my exhaust sound at high RPMs! :smileup:

Sweet! And wow you really jumped on the mod wagon, I think it was just about a month ago or so you didn't have the intake or exhaust? unless that was someone else...lol

That is a quick truck to beat!

ramrt1993 07-27-2011 02:12 PM

Yep, I started with an intake, and then an exhaust, and today I just picked up a 180 t stat. I'm not sure how far I'm gonna go with modding, but a supercharger in the future is a possibility :D

snrusnak 07-27-2011 02:17 PM

Cool, your truck is pretty slick!

Supercharger would be really cool. I've always been a nitrous fan for track vehicles :) Real cheap, easy horsepower.

Nice kill! So what was the SS owner's reaction to getting his SS stomped by a Ram?
