Only one way to find out!!!









If all he has is the PDA, you might hang . I'm no expert though,..... good luck, let us know how it goes. Cause' you ARE going to run him, RIGHT??

BTW - I'm not voting, because I really have no idea how you'd do, best of luck though!!!

Good deal!!!

I raced a Duracrap w/ edge (it was NOT a formal race) and beat him from light to light. I think he was in 2wd, I was in 4wd, though. He spun the $h!t out of his tires leaving the light, the only reason I won I think, those things are quick

all things being equal, Ie: both of you doing a boosted 4x4 launch I think the LBZ would win, but it won't be a total butt whoopin'. If he doesn't know how to race it, and doesn't go 4x4 and boost his launch, you should take him off the line. The chevys are lighter than our fords too which doesn't help.

I have raced a buddies 06 with a PPE a few times. When my truck was stock height with just the Edge, Intake and exhaust it was close every time. Who ever got out of the hole won. When we were side by side at around 70-75 I would start to walk because the TC would lock around there.
I think you might be surprised.

I have no idea if you'll win, but I voted that you would as I am supporting the "home" team.

I think you will win. I ran an 06 Duramax with Edge Juice. Igot him off the line by a good bit and beat him till my speed limiter. If the SCT is as good as everyone says they are, you should take him. Good luck bud!

And THAT is why I like Craig so much!

Are you running sock SCT tunes? If you are I think you'll loose by a little but if you're running a custom tune that suits your rig right you can pull it off I think. The DMAX's are bad azz and not something to play with unless you're on your A game.

But hey - there is ALWAYS someone faster, it's the fun of the race that matters. Let us know the outcome and I'm in your corner!
