Tonight i raced my friend's 98 Blazer, 4.3 auto. It's completely stock. My truck is a Well the first two times he barely beat me out, but that third time i took him. It was such a rush. The problem is i gotta get better traction off the line, i'm just spinnin, if i could i think i would have taken him every time. So for all you guys who say the 2.8 is slow then so is the 4.3. I know theres plenty of 4.3's that could smoke me i'm just happy and wanted to show the rest of u 2.8 guys what it can do.
