1998 chevy silverado?


ok guys this guy has a 1998 chevy silverado. he is actinng like a dick to me and wants to race. i mean i know that his truck puts out much more hp than me but being a truck and being very heavy should let me have an advantage over him right? when i race him i will have the subs taken out the rear seat taken out and UD pullys. how do you think it will work out?

Drivers race, pshhhhh you got him!

He has around 275 crank horsepower but trucks lose alot of power through the drivetrain with the big wheels, tires, axles, gears, transmissions, ect. For example, my truck is rated at 300hp but only puts 215 to the ground.

Also they are as aerodynamic as a brick.

He weighs another 1,500lbs more than you

You will walk him easy! and the faster yall go the better

I don't know crap about v-6 mustangs..... sorry, but for you take whatever crank hps you have and take away 15%. That should be close to how much rwhp you have

That is always good. My dad had a 2001, extended, with a cat-back, mid length headers and a CAI and that truck woke right up. I don't underestimate trucks because where I'm from there are some pretty wicked ones.
