Thats what I mean.... If you own a gt500 you should know how to drive.

I raced an 05 twin turbo'd Z06; beat the snot out of his 21 second run. I sat out the next go round and watched him. He hit the rev limiter in the first three gears before the 330' mark.

Money doesn't make you a racer


Not bad times though danger. This your first trip in the truck? What was your boost set at? Intercooled?
