Hey guys, my uncle has a 03 silverado extended cab work truck with a 5.3 4spd, 3.73 gears. Well the other day he was doing a nice burnout and the neighbor comes out and says to me "My truck can beat that piece of shit chevy any day" I just laughed at him. So my uncle parks, gets out of his truck and asks him if he wants to race, loser pays $300. So my neighbor says "sure, I could use those extra 300 bucks" So they talked and agreed on racing this saturday on a backroad. So who do you guys think is going to win? My uncles truck runs way stronger than mine for some reason. It just pulls so much stronger and harder. I think he has some sort of factory freak, or maybe its because its a work truck, wich is probaly lighter :think: . So do you guys think my uncle stands a chance?

Take out any extra weight like the spare tire and shit to loose some pounds and then for traction, launch in 4 wheel

my buddy had a stock hemi crew cab and according to the g-force meter it ran just a hair under 16 in the 1/4, my regular cab with the 4.8 ran a 15.8, so I would say that your uncle has a pretty good chance, especially if the race is kept under a 1/4. Don't launch in 4 wheel drive, just stage it at around 1300 rpms. He shouldnt have a problem getting traction if it dry.
