Remember the Mustang that was going to race the SSR

Well I thought about that, A guy has a 05 GTO 6.0 6 speed that wants to race my truck for the fun of it, Unlike the Mustang ver SSR that went on for weeks this is tomorrow night at a NHRA track, It is a nice track as it has two sets of trap lights, One at the 1/8 and one at the 1/4 mile, It is a test night where you can come and see what it will do, Also unlike the other mine is a 04 5.3, He works at a speed shop and has a few things done to the goat but I don't know what, I know it has a K&N, SuperChips, But I think that is about it, I wasn't going to go but the wife and a few friends said why not, The GTO owner said so what if you lose it will be fun, I looked him in the eye and said I never race to lose, Now he doesn'r know what to think, All I know is it should be interesting

Double L, I run NHRA Div 6 Pro in a 12.75 dailydriver 62 ChevyII on DOTs, but otherwise street trim, it's running 400HP but is built to handle 500HP and with hundreds of 1/4 mi passes it's never whimpered, but that's the kicker, it's over built for what it does and putting a 5000# beast into the low 14s is an accomplishment, but it's one with some serious consequences because our beloved SSRs aren't over built like that. I figure that at a minimum you're 150% of design. To run the times you got your 60' must be around 1.90-1.85 and that's a huge hit to the drivetrain of something that heavy, if you're going to get back into this kind of playing, having the drivetrain upgraded would be an excellent idea.

That's gotta be a blast to push 13s in an SSR
