    did they do away with the awd system that was in them. i know the awd system they were runing stole a lot of power and they were pretty slow in the quarter.

    i dont know about the new one but the old all wheel drive was slow as shit. its weight offset the allwheel drive, cuz i could launch pretty much the same. but they die after bout 15-20, not die but lose the 1/4 car length advantage they had. this is from a 89 silverado owner.

    i dont know what they will run in the quarter, but the 06 pickup with the vortec max will outrun the ss pickup from a dead stop and from a kick. both have the same engine. the ss was 2wd ext. cab and the vortec max was 4wd ext cab.

    they should be 2wd, with a supercharged ls2, or ls7. then they would kick ass and could justify there expensive ass pricetag

    I agree. Right now they are turds. Who wants an SS entended cab anyway? What a joke. If they plan to get to the level of the Lightning then GM better pull their heads out. Or just get rid of the damn SS badge on that truck. It's a disgrace.

    I know this sounds bad but GM needs to take a tip from dodge! they need to take the pickup make it a single cab thats fairly low with some meats in the back. then put an LS7 engine and 6-speed behind it. That i would buy.

    Most SS trucks run low 15s stock. Some might sqeek into a high high 14 but that is the average at a regular track with a decent driver. Obiously things are different and slow high elevation tracks or with crappy drivers.

    Hey GM is coming around. Just look at all the new performance lines out.
    Trailblazer SS is definitly a step in the right direction. A colorado SS would be some serious fun though. ???????

    you all can talk trash about the sss , but i love my truck and every sss owner will say the same. see all these trucks need is a custome pcm tune.. and your good to go. havent lost a race yet against other stock trucks... ( including the lightning , but haven not raced an srt/10 ). and guess what i can pull my 31 contender with out a problem. i like to see other sport trucks do that. so remember you cant really bash the sss unless you drive one.

    the srt-10 is slower than the lightning

    oh yeah, and I don't believe a tune is NEAR enough to get you outrunning lightnings. Even if it was, all you need is a tune. . .and all they need is a pulley and you'll never see them again
