SS/SC vs. SSR

This might be a hard one to figure out since you don't see many SSRs around. Thing is the old man just got an SSR and got me wondering how it would do against a balt. The SSR is being pushed by a 6.0L LS2 V8 w/ an auto tranny. What do you think the balt will need if anything to take the old man's new toy down? I'll try and take pops to the track to find out. of course I'll get some video.

the SSR is a heavy heavy machine, and slowed down by the torque management of the auto tranny... However in El Paso the LS2 should make strong power....

I think its a pretty even match-up....

The key to winning at the track will be to hole shot the SSR at the tree, run a solid 60ft and beat it in the 1/8, as the LS2 should come on strong on the top end of the track.

that seems backwards to me but Im sure you are right. but in logic you would think that the ssr would have the bottom end when just at the end we would pass it in the 1/4

i played around with a LS2 SSR on the highway in my ws6. he came flyin past me and i pulled into the right lane and tried chasin him down. i caught him pretty quick and then we just blasted around for alittle bit. the truck was pretty impressive. i reeled him in somewhat easily but i'm not stock. i dont think i wouldve had anything for him had i been in my SS/sc though.

There are 3 guys at my work that have ssr's. I know that 2 are ls2 and I don't know about the 3rd. I did get to ride in the with my boss driving. He got on it pretty hard initially. If his was an LS2 then listen to what LittleMT says. If it wasn't then that explains iso's statement. The thing was a pig. It took forever to act like it had power.

I should be getting some vid on sunday. I'll run a stock SS/SC and a stage2 + bolt-ons SS/SC. I'm pretty sure the Stage2 can cut high 12s w/ DRs.
