Beaten...

Yes I chalked up my first "L". It was against a TrailBlazer SS with intake, exhaust and tune. 350hp to the wheels, he said. I'm in an '04 GTO. Anyway I lost the first race badly because I left TCS on. The second was far closer after I turned it off. I think I would have won had it not been for my 280 lb friend in the passenger seat. He only got me by a nose up to 80mph, then he had to let off because we got to a turn. Anyway I was sad and my friend has been giving me crap for losing to an SUV.

I went to the track last week and there was this "retired" looking couple with a Trailblazer SS. Damn thing was running 13.1 - 13.2 We were all shocked! Then we found out it had a supercharger on it...boy, was I relieved, because I was running about a tenth slower.

Lose the 280lb passenger and I bet it you would have had him by a nose. Not to mention you stopped right when that brick was really starting to feel that wall of air he was pushing...

Newbie here. Seems like all/some/most the videos we see of GTO's losing is with a camera guy in the passenger seat. We don't need the extra weight. Nice race considering 280 lb anchor.
