    owners manual is a good thing to read over and over. It could also be SGS on you car. Which would be to the right of your fog light switch.

    auto, off. And my personal fave is to spin the rear tires a bit before we leave the line for that extra intimidation factor, now that i think about it... i think ive only lost to a vette... but... its a vette so i knew i was boned from the start.

    depends what mods u got, vette, speaking of c5 and down are just 200-300lbs lighter, but if u got some lid and cai u can take it. driver's race c5 vs TA at that point if c5 is stock.. I'm not intimidated by no vette, I give it all I got, then if I beat them, hey I send them back to the shop for more mods

    lol the vette i lost to the other day got the jump on me. We were lined up, flag went down, he got the jump and i had to double clutch just to get up to his door. dont get me wrong, my bird can haul. Close race, but the vette got the win... and honestly... when i see a vette i kind of cower a bit.

    ... maybe cause you think he's modded to hell, but most c5 or c6 that are still in warranty from factory don't do much.. LT H and Y, catback.. they usually don't do heads/cam if they are pretty new,, they want to keep that factory warranty.. so... keep ya chin up...

    ws6 ans c5 are both LS1 engines, 300-305rwhp stock (350 at crank). the c5 is 250 lbs lighter without the driver.

    the c6 is LS2 engine, 340-345rwhp stock (400 at crank). c6 is also 300 lbs lighter..

    I did some math on it and looking at some general 1/4 times and rwhp..
    it take about 100lbs for every additional 10-12rwhp, then a additional 10-12rwhp will shave off about .1 at 1/4mi.. this is a general idea but works most of the times, also depends what torque, tires, gears, stall etc the car has...

    Well, I know I had a stock WS6, and never got out ran by a c5 or c4(stock that is). I was running a 8.5 at 81-83 mph is an 1/8th with a lid and that's it. The car was bone stock. The thing that really help's us f-body's is that c5's have a 273 gear in the rear(i think). They have a highway gear.
