    99 Z28 vs. 03-04 Mach 1

    This guy named Jimmy I went to high school with owns a red mach 1 now, and I had been trying to get him to race me for a couple months now. I was cruising through town Sunday afternoon, and he was heading out on a four lane road, so I pulled up beside him about 40 mph, he looks at me, then punches it. I do the same, and by the top of third I had two car lengths on him, I shifted it to fourth and he continued to lose ground. I let off about 100 or so, and he was more than a bus length back. LEFT HIS ASS. I thought those mach 1's ran harder than that?

    It was stock though, vs. a modified LS1. Altogether, an UNSATISFYING KILL. Need to race one with a supercharger, especially since the TSP PRC LS6 heads should be arriving any day now to complement the cam!

    you should have killed him more with your mods, what are his mods actually?

    I don't think he has anything done to it. I let off midway through fourth gear, and had a bus length AT LEAST on him. Didn't see the point in punishing him more than necessary.

    Im thinkin dude didnt know how to drive. I had a Mach and it was a hard car to beat, I got my ass handed to me by a Cobra (understandably), but it should have been closer than that.

    Mach 1's are actually pretty damn close to LS1 F-Bodys in terms of performance. I'd still give the edge to the LS1, but it should be close.

    Obviously the author has mods, so that tilts the tables a lot

    Would the 4:10 gears have a detrimental effect in 4th gear?

    Machs dyno stock around 275-285. You have 375 at the wheels, i hope that you killed him! About the same a stock ls1. I will run you if you would like, we a re kinda close(in location), you will win with more power, i only dynoed at 316 hp and 340 ftlbs! I out run my buddies ta with simular mods to mine at the track. We have yet to do it from a roll though. Oh and when you get the heads and cam i will hopefully have a 100 or 125 shot of nitrous!

    Let's line 'em up! It is about time I got to run somebody from this site. With all the kills I was racking up, I was hoping one had been to this website before. We can run 'em as is or we can wait till I get my heads put on and you get the nitrous hooked up. Should be a good one either way!

    Gears make a big difference. BIG. Not detrimental, more like SUPPLEMENTAL.

    I got a 100 more WHEEL HP, and it is lighter, with gears? That guy has always owned hot rod Mustangs since we were in high school. He had a Fox body Saleen for a while. That was a nice ride.

    Maybe he let off on it when he saw it was useless to continue?

    I didnt see you had that much more juice than he did, ok its understandable!
    The Cobra I raced had 480 to the rear wheels and it was like I was sitting still when he took off.

    Yep, pretty black one. He had a smaller pulley, intake/exhaust, and a custom tune. I talked to him after he smoked me.

    Did he have pillar gauges by any chance, and satin wheels? White guy, about 5'6 or 5'8?

    If so, I ran that dude. He had a Steigmeyer ported eaton, pulley, and exhaust. He f*cked his clutch up in third though, so I keep pulling on through the lights.

    You need a cam and full exhaust ASAP. Gears would be nice also, something tells me those GTO's need nothing less than 4.10's, if you got a stick. You will have something for his ass next time.

    This month, or July? I usually check in to LS1.com every day during the week, so if you decide to come this way, drop me a line a week before and we will set something up. I am itching to run a well modified Mach1.

    Ain't we all! I ain't gonna lie, my car is a money pit too. It will be worth it everytime you drop the hammer though!
    <----they got that wrong, with 4.10's it is more like a short distance in first, and LOOOONG way in second, and a few feet in third, the first two need to be switched.

    I didn't get a chance ever to race one in my 2000 SS (stock), but I ran one on the interstate from ~60mph in my 2005 C6 Z51 and all I could hear was his engine roar for as he downshifted and I left him like he was chained to the ground! LOL
