Default C6 and Cobra get a taste of some LS1 power

Race 1
I'm headed over to a friends house minding my own business when a beautiful black on black C6 flies by me. I didn't want to race him because I didnt want to get spanked lol until I notice he kind of waits for me at the stop sign ahead of me. I figured why not and catch up. Both of us slowly move up and at about 10 mph we both punch the gas and I barely inch him to about half a car if not less til we shut down. I was soooo stoked

Race 2
I was taking my girl home when I noticed a dark grey cobra ahead of me and decide to provoke a race. He was in the turning lane about to go on the freeway when I pass by giving him a little rev. It works and soon enough he was behind me. I make a right turn to where we have a good straight away and he gets beside me at about 10 mph as well. He gives me the go ahead and I smash the gas. We're dead even at first but I end up putting a good car and a half on him. I try and get another race but he just kept doing the famous ricer fly by and turning to avoid me but I kept following to get another run in lol. I'm behind the guy and he just takes off and flashes his emergency lights like an idiot so I decided to call it a night. As of right now my girl is giving me the silent treatment but it was well worth it.

I am proud to say that a terminator was terminated

Nothing like an annoying driver who follows you around wanting another race. I really hate guys like you that do that. It's just bad form. You won, we get it. Had some jackass in a blue GTO do this recently. Otherwise, good kill.

The race went from 10mph to what?

Good kills, but surely you can't be stock?

Did you shift your 4L60E transmission manually in this race?
Just an FYI...that "E" stands for electronic. You didn't gain 3 tenths from
shifting manually. Other factors would've reduced your ET.

If I had to guess, I'd say these are the OP's mods:
  • MTI clear lid
  • SSRA
  • smooth bellows
  • ported tb
  • Pacesetters long tubes
  • !cats
If that's the case, that's plenty to beat a stock C6 and a stock Cobra.

Good kills.

Guess none of you have raced with factory freaks. Oh no guess not. Before you call bs, cobras get spanked by ls1s STOCK FOR STOCK, yeah i did it myself, c6s arent that fast, they usally spank ls1s but not always, NOT always...hint hint...

and whats wrong with racing with a passenger? when your racing your racing WITH someone, so your also endagering someone elses life anyway, dont be a hypocrite.

a 30-40 horsepower mod isnt considered "modded", i can devour people that have done **** to their car, its bout driver skill.

who cares if hes got some small *** mod, its not enough to make a diffrence.

Youd be surprised, they are only a few ticks faster stock. Check out CF forums for the stock LS2/LS3 guys.

We have alot of newbies
