907 SSS

Should be faster than that

Recommended Posts

Just lined up at a light with an sss, and I'm in my single cab with the v6. We both hit and and he gets the jump and continues to pull but by the time we were at 60 he probably only had 5 car lengths on me. Seems to me he should have beat me pretty bad maybe his truck wasn't taken care of...run hard put away wet type of thing? And I know he gave it all he got, his exhaust was screaming. Thoughts?

I think your expectations of a 345 HP'ish truck are over imagined. SSS's aren't blazingly fast in stock or stock'ish form. You wont read or hear anyone on this site claiming that. A better description I give when people ask me how fast it is. My reply is always it's ''Peppy''. Meaning Its not really a truck to brag about its acceleration on stock form, but it will put you in a your seat just enough to make you smile when accelerating hence making them fun to drive over most other stock v-8 trucks.

 

All that being said, they may not win by much, but these trucks are still quicker than 90% of stock v-8 trucks on the road today Which is impressive considering how old they are now. They may not be a lot quicker, but quicker none the less.

 

What color was the SS, I live in anchorage too.

Ah okay thanks for the replies guys. I knew I was going to lose but I didn't give a shit hahahahaha. Hope I see him at a light again one day when my truck has a 6.hoe and a 76mm turbo and he can hear my spool while I'm brake boosting ready for it to turn green!!! Just wish that day could be tomorrow haha.

If you want to feel good about losing by 5 car lengths in a race 60mph then I say more power to ya! As pointed out above 345hp now days isn't jack. You can't even buy a V8 in a truck from ford, GM, or Dodge that makes less than 345.

One day when I get....bla-bla-bla! Yeah one day when I get a 572 B.B. with a couple of spinners or a pro-charger and and a Tranny to pull it and a 4-link suspension and racing stripes and....!!!

 

5 lengths at 60! Not sure that was a bad running SS!?!? How many lengths are you used to getting pulled by???

 

Just teasing!

I got roasted yesterday by a newer Malibu. I felt so ashamed I took a road I didn't have to go down just so I wouldn't be staring at his tail lights anymore

Lmao i raced a ws6 on the freeway yesterday. saw him reving his car so i pulled up to him on the farthest left lane and my pipes screamed at WOT he still beat me but by like half a car, felt good considering that it was 5,000 lbs. against 3.500 lbs. and only .3 more of displacement :jester:
