Last night I raced my friends Silverado SS again, cause he had some new mods. Right now he has a dumped no muffler exhaust, intake, custom tune, 180 t stat, and a shift kit. Even with his AWD and my spinning rear tires, I beat him right from the start and just kept increasing my lead to about 3 or 4 trucks at the speed limiter (105).

Now for the Cummins. He has a built tranny, he's running 40 pounds of boost through this crazy tune that he has, and a few other things. First we raced in 2WD where I killed him from the start and around 70 he passed me quite easily..I could hear his turbo screaming as he passed me! I lost by 3 truck lengths at 105 MPH. Next we raced when he was in 4WD. From the start he killed me pretty good but I caught up to him and passed him right as I hit the speed limiter. He said the reason I beat him on the last race is because his tranny was overheating and he had to switch to 2WD in the middle of the race. But considering he's got the fastest truck from all my friends, I was still happy with the outcome.

I'm hoping with a programmer and long tubes and some stickier tires I'll be able to beat him!

^^ what Fred said. The diesel should have been able to do a lot more than that, time for him to pick up an upgraded tranny cooler and a deeper pan if he's overheating after a few runs. Did you let him spool up before launching or was it a dead launch for him?

His SS is surprisingly fast though...based on the HP and weight, it should be a lot slower. He just went really cheap on his exhaust, he doesn't even have turn downs, its just cut off :LOL:

The way the diesel blew by me when he was in 2WD was shocking, especially considering how badly I out launched him. Since it was 3 of us, we had on truck in the back doing 3 honks so he had plenty of time to spool up, but I think he only spooled up on the 4WD race...He said his new tune might be a little too hardcore so he might get a milder one so his tranny stops overheating.

I want 4.10s BAD!!!! Congrats on the win....keep the mods coming and they get bigger and better!
4:10 LSD is one of my favorite parts about my truck..I know how you feel about wanting something badly though...for me its longtubes! I would have never started modding my truck if it weren't for all the helpful advice on these forums...I'm paranoid about messing up my truck :D

Yeah, but only if the diesel launches in 2WD..if he launches in 4WD, I'm screwed :LOL:

I've raced that SS on three different occasions. First time I raced him, I was stock and inexperienced so he beat me. Second time I had a few mods and I beat him. Now this time we both had more mods, most notably his custom tune, and I didn't beat him as badly as I did the second time. He didn't say much. He said nice race, and he said at least his truck still looks good! :D
