Silverado SS - Rolled 'em up and smoked 'em
 
The other day I raced a new Chevy Silverado SS. Off the line up to about 150 km/h. I SMOKED him! I gained about 2 car lengths on him per gear.

Stats on his car:
(from chevy website)
* H.O. Vortec 6000 V8
* 345 horsepower
@ 5200 rpm.
* 380 lb.-ft. of torque
@ 4000 rpm.
* Tuned, 3.5-inch side-exit exhaust.


I couldn't find the weight on the website. I'm sure it is something rediculous like 6000+ lbs.

Good kill! Since I am a a Ford fan, I like seeing Chevy's lose lol!

The SS was supposed to be a Lightning killer, but it ended up being a 15 second peice of wood:(

Nice looking trucks but nothing to worry about on the street for you or me!

I haven't raced a Lightning before....and I think that's a good thing....I would get eaten alive! *respect*

Thanks man, but it doesnt handle nearly as well as your Bimmer!

yo SVTs they are quick arent they? A bit to obig though, if i was to go with something in the truck world i`d do a S10 with a V8supercharge hehehe.

Yeah, the Lightning is pretty big, its a full size truck, but SVT did it that way, because without the usefulness of a full bed, who the hell would spend 40g on a truck? (Except for enthusiasts lol)

I've seen s10's with charged motors, and they are quick..... I mean really quick!

Take a SVT Lightning over any F/I S10 any day! :)
