    Thank you all for your comments, but some of you need to take a chill pill and not get all defensive because a V8 "lost" to a V6. It's not like I'm a non-LS1 owner (Ricer, Tuner, Ford owner, or whatever) coming on here bashing the muscle car world. I just posted up about a FRIENDLY race between my best friend's DD and my DD, that the V8 happened to loose because of a driver mistake. If I had posted up here about my H/C/I w/ Nitrous Trans Am (about 600hp when I'm done) smoking the crap out of my friend's almost stock (LS6 Intake, Headers, and Exhaust) Corvette, you all would be congratulating me on a nice kill. I know in optimal race conditions (dry pavement and a straight road) the vette would have smoked me (and he has in the past)...just laugh about a rare win for the V6 world and move on.

    And btw...my GTP ran a 13.7 at a drag strip and I was spinning for a good 100ft before I got serious traction. So saying that I can't spin my tires vs a car that can break them loose anytime is an invalid argument.

    lol i wasnt getting defensive or trying to, i was simply offering my pov. I remember when i had my old t/a and my buddy had his. he had just gotten a new clutch so he couldnt hammer on it, so i tried racing him one time and i won. I guess if u call it a race its a race.

    That's exactly how I took it. You took advantage of the weather conditions, and beat your friend's vette. And you won

    Same damn thing as being in a 2000 Silverado 2500 with AutoTrac and beating a '99 GT 5 speed with exhaust, when sections of the road are still wet I did it with my buddy and I crushed him. And yes, this was on a 60mph rural 4 lane highway with random stop lights everywhere, before you guys throw up the safety flag

    NICE WIN CAMINO

    How many of you seen this coming? It was a race. The weakest car won. Have you guys never lost a race? I just did two nights ago. New camaro,and I kept it in third too long. I lost. That one. Do I have a faster car? I think so. Still lost. I was grinning. Thumbs up. Loved every second.

    So we were heading to the mall...me, my fiance (passenger in my car), my roommate in his '98 C5, and my brother in my old Mazda3. We were driving separately because we all had to go separate ways in a few hours.

    So anyway...we line up at a red light..GTP and C5 next to each other with the Mazda3 behind me. There is some water from the melting snow covering the entire intersection, but the road ahead is dry as a bone. I've known my roommate for a good 5 years now, and I know he isn't the best driver, so I KNOW he is going to stomp on it when the light turns green. Knowing this, I throw him a rev, which he returns.

    Light turns green, I ease into the throttle, my roommate floors it, I make it to dry pavement (without any wheel spin), and then floor it. I accelerate like a bat out of hell. I look behind me and my friend is still spinning, but he is slowing moving across the intersection with smoke in tow. I watch as he easy reels me in and passes me. Now at this point I'm doing 125mph. My fastest quarter mile time is 13.7 @ 99.6mph. If my calculations are correct I am past the quarter mile mark.

    When we get to the next light, he has pulled in front of me (truck in what was his lane), and has his flashers on signaling that he won...I disagree. He says that he made it to the next light first, therefore he is the winner. I say that I made it way past the quarter mile marker before he caught me, and since his top speed is at least 20mph higher than mine (160 vs 140) he would win a distance race every time. Granted we never established a finishing point, but still. What do you guys think...who won?

    PS: I think we can all agree that I at least have the better Driver Mod
    Did you ever hit your brakes before he passed you? If not he probably thought you were still racing. Since no distance was established, I believe the race is over once someone lets off.....

    How much crank hp in the c5??? Spinning your tires in a drag race usually = loss. Especially if the other guy just leaves you there spinning.. imho lots of hp = nothing if you can't get it to the road..

    Right, and not that it's easy, but it would be easiER to get it to the road in a GTP than it would in a vette... if you're racing across a wet intersection

    Perhaps some of you guys don't see the humor in this? A GTP outran a C5. Wet roads or not, a win is a win, a loss is a loss

    He's stock except for a LS6 Intake, LT Headers and an Exhaust that I installed. He has a Vortec Supercharger that is waiting to go on, but I'm not installing it for him, due to the way I was treated last time I did work for him.

We got the green and I started pedaling real hard, then I realized that I was completley across the street before this Dodge Viper even left the stop light. I guess he didnt notice that it was green. Any way, long story short: I beat a Dodge Viper on my bicycle. It was awesome and I tell people the story all the time.
    I killed a viper too in a roll race. Only thing is, he didn't know were were racing and pulled off highway into the church.

    I agree unless a preset was understood. However if it had been at the track and the same circumstances happened he would have been beat.

On dry pavement he wouldnt have a chance unless the guy in the vette doesnt know how to launch.
    Your logic is fault, more powerful FWD cars lift the weight off the front tires at the starting line and have a hard time with traction. Vette throws all the weight over the rear tires duing launching, so it gets great traction.

    Good kill you should have shut down at 60-80 and put your hazards on, race won.

    Speak for yourself...

    Are you talking about subscription emails? You know you can turn those off, right?
