It's been a while since I got a good street race under my belt.

Dan has a 383 stroker motor in his '85 Corvette vs. my bone stock LS1 C5 convertible.

Sure, I edged him out, but wow did that car leap from a dig! Impressive!

He's got some more tuning to do, might go the other way next time.:thumbsup:

Heck yea! Yea we couldn't go from a dead start, I might still be there spinning tires.

Good to know the ole '85 can hang! Your face said it all, you didn't expect to need to keep pedaling. :laughing:

That's funny, I have a different memory of our race. When I let off, I had you by 20 car lengths and I was only doing like 120 mph. The only time you were next to my back right fender was when my foot was on the brake pedal before we started. :laughing:

You and me Dan, you just can't beat the low end torque of a 383.

Oh thats right GM finaly figured that out Duh! 6.2 liters super charged 597 ft lb torque at 4k...

:D We need to hit the track in your beast!

I got some C5Z wheels we'll be putting on in awhile, which will help traction but could grenade the Dana 36 (especially with already noticing a grip difference on these hot Arizona roads). When I get around to rebuilding the rear suspension, we'll spend some time on the rear diff too. For now, more miles of smiles!

Psst, Spideypat and I are gonna pick up a bead blaster soon for the next project. :D

Ok, so a 2001 C5 in "bone stock" form has what, 345 hp?

Dan, how much HP does your stroker produce? Is it an issue of not hooking up?

If I were an outsider looking in, I would have bet on you to outrun a stock c5?
