A BLAZER? Please. Folks, let'* remember they're geared like a TRUCK. And they're HEAVY. Yes, I'm a fan of the 4.3, as I've owned 3 (one in a truck, one in a blazer, one in a boat), but they're not built for what our cars were built for.
Yes, even a Blazer, if built right can be fast, but who would want to? Gimme a break. I almost (stress on the almost) got my *** handed to me last night by a Dodge Shadow. Yup. No kidding. But the telltale evidence were open headers below the rocker panels.....in the quantity of 4 on each side. You do the math. If it hadn't been for those, I wouldn't have bothered.
I don't race SUV'* or minivans. It'* a case of 'picking on someone my own size'. That'* like posting kills of VW beetles and mopeds. 94'* kill was typical of an encounter with an SUV or van. They can't hang. In his case, I'd have done what he did, but only because I was provoked.
I doubt seriously he would even look twice at a Blazer revving an engine at a stoplight.
