This may not seem impressive to some of you folks who think a Silverado SS is outdated, but I raced and beat a Silverado SS twice tonight.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
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!
