    Happened about 3 months back.

    My GTO vs a lightning.

    GTO has intake/exhaust/pulley/tune = 371 rwhp
    Lightning was a ported blower + pulley etc, 440+ rwhp.

    Good race, I was on 19" street tires and and the lightning was on 18" street tires, race was around 1/8th a mile.

    Closest race I have had... and the result sparked a big controversy on a local board about who won....:)

    if a lightning handles and drives like a regular ford truck then thats prob a scary ass ride.

    coming from a former owner of 2 lightnings... they are damn fast. i had my first lightning in 02, and even then not many people knew much about them. i cant tell you how many :eek3: faces i put on people. then again, my truck had every bolton you could think of, plus teh bottlez.

    Due to me blowing the launch, the lightning was about 1 car ahead when I hit second gear, and by the middle of third I was coming around him. The dispute was whether or not I passed him before the finish line which was the camera man... however I was yanking on him so hard it was a bit hard to tell.

    :coold: I love L's, but I wouldn't give up the fit/finish/comfort of my GTO for one. Good race.
