I am not too sure, but the 4.3 Vortech engine is preety quick.....my guess would be he can still kinda take you at 70mph..but at like 90..you should start gaining. (i might be wrong) Race safe and post the outcome.

7 car lenght's...that seems kinda impossible unless he shot off around 100 and you kept going
he didnt say he cut off afterwards, he just said 'oh well but im gonna kick your ass from a stop!' and i was like 'yeah i know'

he was a good bit away from me... AT LEAST 5 car lengths but im thinking it was about 7 because he was wayy back there..

oh well im not asking you guys to believe me..

i think their top speed is around 110...
i might be wrong so race till 120;)
if the pickups are anything like the blazer it won't be much of a race......the s10 blazers have a governor on it......so if he does as well he'll top out at 96mph

The pickups have the governor at 96 too, but if he has the racing chip it might be higher. Racing chips sometimes raise the top speed.
a chip won't remove the govenor, they only increase hp/tq ........you have to get a programmer to remove it
