Stock non svt beats svt

I raced a local member tonight and my 07 bone stock SE beat his 05 SVT

Can someone explain this?

I'm guessing all of the racing was done on a closed course. Depending on what kind of racing, there are man factors that could give one car the advantage over another. Gearing and tires are probably big ones.

Its easy to explain, you are both full of BS. No such thing as a 05 svt, you raced a non existent car, nice win for you though, LOL!

Closed course. Always say closed course... for legal reasons with the site.

Anyways it probably was no svt. 02-04 is only years of the svtf.

Well whatever it was, you won. But please don't street race (if that is what you did), I had a buddy killed by 2 street racers when they plowed into him on his motorcycle. There is a reason for speed limits, it's called safety, for you and others.
