ok so once again im on 309 and in my rear view i see a maybe 2000 z28 not to sure but i know it was the ls1 and i see him going in and out of cars so i know hes coming to get me. so i slow down he gets next to me and he just wouldnt race so at that point i just stopped paying attention and outta know where he just punches is as im texting so by the time i hit the gas hes 3-4 cars a head of me so i punch it and easly catch up then he lines up with me again and does the 3 beeps and well it wasnt even a race i killed him couldnt even count the cars. is the z28 really that inferior to the GTO

Texting while on the freeway? dangerous! :eek: haha but nice kill! I would think Z28's are much faster than that but I guess you took one down easier than other! again nice kill!

I don't think I am alone when I say what the hell is with your stories?

First you hang with LS1 Vettes and now you dominate a LS1 Z28 in a LS1 GTO. Props for buying a GTO and loving it but lets get real here both of the cars you raced should have taken you. The LS1 Corvette and LS1 F-Body are about equal due to gearing and the LS1 F-Body is close to equal with a LS2 GTO. Of course the C5 is faster at speed vs LS1 F-Body as is the LS2 GTO.

So how the hell are you taking out both the C5 and F-Body. Are there a few mods you have yet to mention like a supercharger?


And don't even get me started on complete idiots who text while driving.

I think texting while driving should carry the same penalties as drinking and driving. There should be jail time and huge fines and loss of license.

Are you an idiot????? And then to text and start into a race. What are you thinking???

if this is a true story, it was a dressed up v6 camaro. no way in hell you slaughtered an ls1 camaro like that if he was trying. And i do occasinally text at long lights, but never while driving. A girlfriend i had in highschool broke three ribs, and it could have been MUCH worse because she was texting going down the highway, just idiotic IMO.

I'm driving a stock LS2 gto and I could not keep up with a C5 FRC, he had about a car and a half on me the whole way and even gaining more as we got further into it. maybe you got the car used with mods? or your just not mentioning the mods you put on it? I would think its impossible for a stock 04 to take a z28 that bad, let alone a C5. :confused

by the time i hit the gas hes 3-4 cars a head of me so i punch it and easly catch up then he lines up with me again and does the 3 beeps and well it wasnt even a race i killed him couldnt even count the cars.
Even with your mods you beat the driver. He was hardly trying or couldn't shift, especially with the implication about bus lengths.

I vote v6 or not an Ls1
My races with Ls1's have been like this:
Raced two F-bodies, I barely pulled, the pull increased with speed
raced three C5 Vette's; first, dead even pull from ~60 to 100
second, from dig, dead even to 65 or so, then we both let out
Third race, I know the guy, intake, full exhaust, no cats, from dig-
I got him good off the line and was able to hold him to about 100, then he came charging by like i was stationary
That's with my intake, cat-back and tune

lol honestly u guys can sit here and say what you want but im telling you what happened so deal with it
We all know anything can happen on the street;
the problem is you're telling this stuff to people who have a lot of experience when it comes to GTO's and racing. When BS is smelled, expect to be called on it. You saying "couldnt even count the cars" on an Ls1 smells like BS.

That reminds me, I got smoked by an old Honda civic this morning. Problem was, I didn't realize we were racing...

What does your car run at the strip? If you haven't been you should go...
did you buy your car new? maybe there are more mods than you know; like 3.91's or something...

I have determined the majority of GTO owners are 'realists' and the truth is the truth, even if it sucks
