Cool LS1 driver and fun race.
Today I was running side by side with this LS1 z28 going about 35mph or so. I didn't think much about it and all the sudden he nails it. He got a good 1-2 car jump in front of me. So I do my best to reel him in. I finally caught up to him around 70 -80mph or so in 3rd gear and slowly started walking by him. Then we had to slow down because of up coming traffic.
So now he is behind me - (right on my bumber and wants a rematch) in the fast lane with a truck in front of us. The truck moves over and gives us nothing but clear road. So I downshift into 3rd (at about 65-70mph) and nail it. The Z28 tried real hard to stay in my draft. It worked for a little bit but I slowly walked away from him. The best part was I was still pulling on him in 4th gear at around 130mph! From a 70mph roll up to 130 mph, I pulled at least 3-4 cars on that LS1 Z28.
There was a red light way up the road so we had to start slowing down. He pulled up along side of me and rolled down his window. He was really cool about it and said he really liked WRXs. That they were really cool cars. You have to love that coming from a a Chevy guy.
