Wow.. this guy almost beat me. I pulled him but very slowly. Im all stock. 05 Gto.

He said he "boosted it up a little" whatever that means... I know it was supercharged but damn.

Last model Harley Trucks had the same engine and tranny combo as the lightnings with the exception of the 4 doors and way better interior.

sounds like you just need some mods. I would be embarrased if a truck hung with me but then again I realize they are fast. Nothing is better than putting some schmoe in their place cuz they think their cars is fast though..

I had a dark shadow gray 02 Harley, man I wish I had kept that truck. I sold it to a buddy when I left Northern California, but I know he babies it; so it has a good home.
I had a 6lb lower pulley, CAI and a predator tine on it; great truck. Here are some pics from Northern Cal.

werd those things can be quick, but like the lightning it turns to a brick at triple digit speeds

I raced a Chevy Duramax last time at the track. The damm thing had me up to about the 1000 ft mark, then is was, by by trucker boy. I never saw him after that, but I was worried at first. I think he ran mid 15

The 03 and 04 Harleys were boosted. One of the guys in AZLOC had his Harley running in the 11's and it was still his daily driver. He swapped it out for a Lightning and put a Whipple on it. Now he has a faster 11 second truck but only two doors.

However as mentioned above they turn into a brick in the wind at about 80. I found that out playing with one of your GTO's on the highway. I ran about a second faster than him at the strip a couple weeks ago, I think he only ran low 13's but he still had me on the highway the first time we played. Just watch out for the Lightnings from a light. My truck runs the 1/8 in 7.78 in 95 degree heat with a 1.73 60 on street tires. Can't wait for the cooler air to get a good 1/4 time, only pulled 12.31 last week in the heat and that was with the 7.78 1/8. Smitty put us all down with that 10.90 he pulled off that night in the same heat. Dang that fast GTO :)
