Default Chevy Tahoe...

funny story comin home late last night from track.

Driving home after track day and picking my wife and 5 yr old from sisters house. On freeway i see these headlights coming up really fast (over 100 mph)... he flies by me and I really don't think anything about it til I get to my exit a few miles down...as i exit an coming to light, there i see the tahoe waitn for the green.. my wife is just wakin up and i tell her "get ready, this guy wants to race", she always replies "you think everyone wants to race you" lol. My bed is full of my race tires/wheels and all my tools i bring and I could tell the tahoe guy is thinkin "loaded truck, no sweat".. sure enough, light turns green and he takes off, I leave a split second later and fly by him...as we reach the next light, this guy is pissed and kissin my bumper, i turn right into the middle lane and right away he goes to left lane thinking he would fly by. As soon as we got even i nailed the pedal and again pulled from him... I take a left turn a mile away into a one lane road and he immediately jumps into the opposite travel lane and tries to pass me again..I lay into throttle and this time I open the cutouts so he knows who he's dealin with.... he takes the next turn and i go straight to go home. Luckily this was late at night and no cars on the road, I wouldn't even think of this if any other cars were on the road... got my last good race for the day, what a nice birthday gift to me

Haha, nice Fred, what do you think your truck runs in street trim?? With street tires and no short belt?

I wish I knew and I actually almost found out..I got to the track just a few minutes before racing and I thought, unload, tech and run once to see how she would run...had all the seats in, no track trimming whatsoever..i knew I would spin so I left very slowly before I got into it..when I did, I felt like it hooked, then I saw my rpms shoot up and all of a sudden I was goin sideways, over corrected and went the opposite way, got off and corrected il the fishtailing stopped and limped to a 19.55 et...so there it is

12.10 is very impressive Fred! Curious as to any transmission mods. All my buddies that run Fords and Chevies tell me that my transmission will blow up at any second. I only have 180,000 miles and might run high 13's on a good day at my 6,000 lb race weight. (stock with my 250 lb ass)

Lol, shitty deal man! I'd like to know what you would run n/a ! If you have any NA passes post em up! Looks like it would move pretty good, and what heads are you running?

that's the unfortunate thing tho...I have 230k miles on mine and have probably swapped my tranny out 5-6 times.. the trannies don't just blow up..it'll tell you when it will go..lol, not sure if it's coincidence, but the one thing in common with all the failures is a stall converter. I'm now running a stock one and this tranny is holding up quite well, if not least, the longest.. High 13's with 6k weight is impressive...I'm runnin around 5k lbs when trimmed..

Good kill. Do you have any idea what engine the Tahoe had? Not to downplay your truck at all (it is insanely fast) but if that Tahoe had the Chevy 5.3 V8, that guy would've got whooped by a standard Ram Hemi. Those are not powerful engines. Now if he had the 6.2 (can you get that in the Tahoe?) it might be a different story. Nonetheless good kill, and I'm surprised he wanted to challenge you. Way to shut him down though

it was an older tahoe so I'm sure no 6 litre motor...It would be close race for sure and maybe stock for stock it would definitely be trouble for me...
