4:11'*? Fast? LMFAO! Those are TOWING gears bud, so it might be quick off the line, but it'll fall on it'* face at 40.

yeah 4.11 gears would not be exactly built for speed...

i actually had a bad impression of the 5.3...my uncles truck has one and when he first bought it i laughed when i looked up specs and saw a 1/4 mile time in the mid 17s...i went back to that same resource and saw the same time...but its for a 3500 crew cab duallie!...so no wonder...it didnt say that the first time around....

a Silverado 1500 which is what my uncle has with the 5.3 according to this site http://chevrolet.jbcarpages.com/Silv...004/index4.php has a 1/4 mile time of 14.8 seconds......thats pretty dang fast for a truck...i used to think my car would smoke his truck....but i might show some respect now

and just because a car/truck can smoke its tires doesnt necessarily mean its fast...my car is fairly powerful...but will it sit there and burn the tires? no....but it is also FWD with lots and lots of weight on the front end...if it was RWD could it sit there and smoke the tires?(camaro or firebird anyone?)...yes i would say it probably could....lots of things affect tire spinning/smoking besides power....such as gearing, weight distribution, the tires themselves, the road...all kinds of stuff...so yes a big ol burnout is impressive...but it could just be because the thing is designed to put insane amounts of power to the ground in 1st gear...IE for towing purposes...

4.11 would be hella good gearing if you have the power to push it

No, I know just because a car can light up the tires doesn't mean it'* fast. But it shows it has power. I'm just telling you guys what he told me he had. But trust me, it'* fast.
