Default what have u beaten?

My '03 GMC Sierra only has the little 4.8L but it is a single cab with the step side bed so it is light compared to most trucks. The only thing I've had when I've raced in the past has been a K&N air filter. Ran a 10.61 in the 1/8 mile. Don't have a 1/4 strip here.
Owned:
Full size Silverado with duals
Cobalt(coupe)
Toyota 4Runner V8

I ran a 14.99 before my spacer and my thermostat, so I figur I'm running about a 14.8 now...

I've beaten:

97 Mustang GT
92 Z28 drop top
2003 ram quad cab with HEMI & duals
door to door with a SRT 10 4 door with auto
countless F150's
countless 4.7 and HEMI Rams
Dakota with a 5.9 in it
2003 F 250 with powerstroke and bully dog stuff
a bunch of ricers
New tundra 4 door with that "bad-***" 5.7... way overrated...

Please tell me your joking... he has twice as many mods as you and the same engine and you have all the extra weight from your 4 wheel drive stuff.

small block swaps in an s10 or blazer is CAKE...but we went big block, and it took some cutting, and welding...and we knock out the entire fire wall and build one...we prolly could have just done some more cutting and welding, but we built it out of aluminum, and it looked good. ohh man you should have seen the burnouts i did on the stock 14 inch wheels.

Sounds like you spent a lot of time and money on her! Don't know that I would want to be quite as involved as building my own firewall, but whatever sinks your opponents battleship dude!Personally I can't wait till I am making more money and can start saving to rebuild my tranny and LT1 in my Camaro. Wanna do a 383 build but that is a couple years down the road I'm sure.
