    was it an actual ws-6 though? I wasnt aware the Lt1 ram air versions had the upgraded suspension also. (or was that just on the new ws-6's where the suspension was introduced?)

    btw: I saw you on TV zoo! well, atleast I thought it was you. It was MTV room raiders and this dude looked exactly like you. it was uncanny. but then I saw that he was from Miami. So it couldnt have been you

    It was the WS6 option code that you checked, and I know that you definitely got the hood and the 17" rims. I am not entirely sure about the rest of the suspension modifications, though.

    I would have liked to have seen that episode on TV. I don't have a TV, though, much less cable, so I guess I'll have to do without. My pictures are out of date, as well. My hair's shorter now, and spiked up. I think I am going to shave my head completely and grow it back blond. This is all relevant to the topic, of course.

    The difference between the two is pretty noticeable from the front end. Just check out a picture of each (LT1 vs LS1 WS6s) and let us know. If it had been a stock WS6 LT1 you should have killed it. My stage 4 WRX would absolutely kill stockish LT1's.

    Moving on to LS1's
    My stage 4 (12.7 @ 108 mph) beat every stock LS1 it raced. Thats from a roll or a stop. I will admit I never raced one past 130mph, but up to 130mph, I came out on top. I usually pulled on them up to 100mph or so and then we stayed basically dead even from there. So if the race was close I would assume it was an LS1.

    Well, not exactly the same situation, but I ate a WS6 alive this week...had some stuff I wanted to get home quickly so took my favorite short-cut, which is REALLY tight, REALLY curvy road. On the straight leading in to the curves, he came flying up on me and when I was long since out of the curves and turning off the road, I saw the tiny little speck coming up behind me fast... Fun times.
