I had a friendly grudge match setup against a friend's ProCharged Escalade today. Both trucks were full weight (on 24's and full of stereo equipment). As you'll see, I was sleeping at the tree and he got me off the line pretty bad. I launched at 3 lbs. and at the 53 second mark in the video you will see the truck torque steer to the right and I let out and get back in it. You'll also hear the stock trans not liking the added power at the 59 second mark, once again I let out for a moment so it would shift and got back in it. Time to build a trans :D

Specs and results are as follows:

2003 Cadillac Escalade

Weight - 6,055 lbs. with 1/2 tank of gas

Turbo Kit by Detroit Speedworks
Upgraded Garrett GT-67 Turbo w/Intercooler

You'll see us doing some testing at the shop, and then the race. (It's loud with an open down pipe) :D
