SVTF Vs. Silverado SS

Specs:
Stock Silverado SS: 6.0L V8 345HP
My SVTF: Around 185HP at the flywheel

Just your typical race, rolled up to a red light, had the SS on my right. I'm assuming it was stock, only thing I noticed was some bling bling 20's. Light turns green, I wait for him to take off just to make sure he wants to go, I launched around 3k, pass him around 5k, running it all the way up to 7600 (raised limiter) where it makes such sweet music. Go into 2nd but shut down soon after cuz there wasn't anyway he was catching up. He rolls by giving me a look of disbelief then waves me to follow him onto the freeway, but it was late and I was on my way home.

Also before that I messed around with a pretty clean Civic EX, full kit (painted), rims, girl driving. Took her from a roll in 2nd, isn't really even worth mentioning...

I played tag with a nice 4 door Accura (lowered, subtle body kit) on the freeway home tonight. He let me know that he wanted to run. I fell in behind him and worked our way to an opening in traffic. I dropped it to third and punched it to red line. We together to 110 before his exit. Good times.

If he thought he was gonna win, he didn't take physics in... middle school. Nice kill though.

Not necessarily. I used to have the 03 Harley Davidson F-150 and my stock SVT is almost as fast as that. just a 3 or 4 tenths slower in the 1/4. The HD is also faster than the SS 340 HP 425 TQ, and no traction problems. Good luck next time.
