Today I barely beat a 454 SS. I knew they were slow for that much HP, much it's a freakin' 454! That should toast my 262...even with consideration of weight. Maybe the dude just couldn't drive. I raced him in a school zone too! LOL! :D He was one of those fags that waits until you're not paying attention or you've already raced....we got up to 85mph.

Yeah, I've heard those automatic transmissions are pretty hard to shift.... (sarcasm mode off now.) That would hardly be an excuse. IF you have an L35 or multi point 4.3 you probably could pull him. Heck, car and driver did a test and raced the 454SS against the Chevy 1500 W/T (work truck) with a 350 and a 5 speed and the W/T blew the 454SS's doors off. Stock, the 454's were not impressive at all; they did do some pretty sweet burnouts though. They were nice looking trucks that in stock trim were bogged down by all the emissions BS. If, however, the person did a little work on the 454SS they can be very quick.
