    My STi vs LS1 z28

    On my way home I notice these head lights coming up fast behind me. At first I thought it was the cops so I slowed down. It ended up being a red LS1 z28. He got right next to me going about 60 mph and shadowed me. I knew what he wanted. So I nailed it and he did the same. From 60mph - 120 mph, I slowly but surely walked him. I ended up with a solid
    3-4 cars. The best part about it was I was still pulling on him all the way to 120. He was falling back the whole way.

    We both slowed down to about about 50 mph and he got besides me again. He first gave me a big thumbs up and a smile (cool guy). Then he looked over at me to say lets do it again. Just on cue we both nailed it. I again pulled on him. We went to about 100mph and I already had about 2 cars on him.

    There was no dought about it. My car was noticeably faster.

    As far as mods I couldn't see any. But I could hear something. His exhaust was loud, yet he still had the factory tips. He most likely had cutouts.

    Cool guy and fun races.

    Nice runs. It is very hard to pull on LS1s on top end, but you sure did. Congrats!

    good kill. i raced a stock z28 before from a dig and took him by about 2 cars up to 80. i think the result would be a lot different if i was on the highway...

    The LS1 you beat probably had the crappy gears...200somethings...because I raced an LS1 ss, and he barelly edged me out by like 1 car at higher speeds, and he told me its cause he doesnt have the 300 gears, he had the 200 whatever gears.

    LS1's come with 2:73 , 3:23, or 3:42 gears stock. These gear setups don't make a lot of difference, trust me.

    What does make a difference is whether it is an automatic or a 6 speed from a roll. The automatics don't seem to do all that well from certain speeds. Especially races starting in the 50mph zone.
    I'm assuming it was an automatic that I raced because of my easy victory. A 6 speed should have given me a better race.

    But the facts are it was an LS1 z28 and I pulled on it twice from a roll. Like I said in the original post , by a solid 3 cars up to 120 and 2 cars up to 100mph from about 50 mph or so.

    Most people dont know that it makes a difference if its a 98-00 or 01-02 because the newer models have alot more HP because they have a LS6 intake. 98-00 can trap the highest ( of course with a good driver) 106 (107 rarley). A 01-02 can trap at 106-109. So probably was a 98-00. Or maybe a bad driver. Note if an LS1 has headers the High end power only gets better.

    How is that bad driving? It's a very typical rwd timeslip for a car on plain street tires.

    That car should have at least 380rwhp. I think he should be trapping much higher than 105mph. I can understand having a higher E.T. due to spinning, but the trap speed is very low.

    I am thinking he is in need of a good tune.
    This car is making a poor man even poorer.
