Hooked up with a few friends from my car club after our dyno day

All pulls were done around 40-140 on a private road in Mexico


M6 Ls2 GTO with some weight reduction, Cam, full catless exhaust 429rwhp


Not bad since my car weighs 400lbs more. For reference sake he didn't pull any until we got just over 120. Maybe I will see if Pat can tune my car to lock the converter in 4th there to put an end to that...

The Yeti vs M6 LS2 GTO with maggie and full exhaust... 464rwhp on a very very very conservative tune...


Held him off for a while until that Maggie proved to be too much for me to handle in the top end.

My GF's dream car is a maggied LS2 midnight blue GOAT. I was not a fan of them at first really until we test drove a few. They can **** and get even in stock form.

Nice runs Ike. I love the gto's but I think with a little spray its going to be game over for them!
Yeah A little baby shot and a converter lock up in fourth would definitely do the trick!

What was up with the second GTO's hood??? Looks like it wasn't latched down all of the way.

It was latched, but it is carbon fiber and at those speeds had a lot of play.

Nice runs! I haven't run a GTO in some time. I would expect you to pull alot more if you started at a lower MPH. As long as traction is pretty decent, I like to go from a 1st gear roll.

Thanks man. Since they are manual cars they dont have converters to lock.

I wish I could do first gear, but I don't like racing sideways...

Those two manual GTOs already have full lockup in 4th, and every other gear. ;)

Damn! good runs! in my opinion you basiclly won. I noticed you pulling on him during the gear shifts...What the chances of me and that supercharged GTO hooking up for some "testing and tuning"?

If it was a race to 120 I beat them, but we just kept riding it out through 4th gear so eventually the lighter cars caught up and passed me by.

I'm sure we could arrange something, but no until I get to run you first!
