Who knows. There's a solid 7 tenths and 5 mph difference between those two cars stock. Like BB said, a bad launch can really cut into that gap...but like Tommy said by the time they hit those speeds mentioned the TA should be in another time zone. Guy is probably just getting way ahead of himself. Maybe he jumped that TA and by the time the guy in the TA realized a race was there and finished spinning... maybe the TA just lost

We all know that any half way running LS1 should put a serious hurting on a 3.7. But that doesn't mean its always going to happen, obviously.

True.. there is always the occasional 'left it in 5th' or 'went to 3rd at 55' gaffes as well. lol

I'm not gonna say it didn't happen, but under 'normal conditions', ie no traction/driver issues, it would be a slaughter for a stock 3.7, much less an auto car. I have, as far as I know, the second quickest stock time of the 3.7s, 2.73s or 3.31. That was a 13.78 @ 102.

In other words, there was a serious error on the behalf of the car/driver, or the truff was stretched just a little lol.

Not buying it. I'm not sure that he could put two lengths on an LT1 TA, much less an LS1. Even if the TA spun badly, the LS1 comes alive in the upper RPM range and should have ran him down.
