Was at the strip on wednesday night... - Page 2 - GM Forum - Buick, Cadillac, Chev, Olds, GMC & Pontiac chat


Lounge For casual talk about things unrelated to General Motors. In other words, off-topic stuff. And anything else that does not fit Section Description.

1997 SSEi downed

2000 Ford F150 Harley Edition (SC V8 ) downed when that crappy Ford tranny shifted from 2-3 otherwise he had a 1/2 length.

Salute all you want.

I do believe the TL-* has a one-up on you

60mph in 6.2, and the above mentioned 14.8 by Car and Driver. It'* got 232lb-ft from 3500 to 5500, so it'* no VTEC torqueless wonder (that'* DOHC VTEC as opposed to this SOHC VTEC).

A normal TL should be easily downed

Still wanna try it for chits and giggles. Maybe test his driving skills, reaction time, tire quality, gearing, shift points etc etc etc.
