I have taken one before, the trailblazer has more top end. He might get you off the line but those things don't pull, the TB will reel him in.

Talking go 4 it

race him from a stand still, stall your motor(footbrake) to 1800 rpms, this should give u some spin to get the motor into its powerband, while u will spin, he will spin more and u have more top end. as for doing burnouts, its a great truck to do burnouts in, even on dry streets, i did one and had half the block up in smock by the time i was done.

As far as the Tiburon, I would be careful racing anything that is 1/2 my vehicle weight and probably 1/3 my drag coefficient. Just my

I'd probably be lucky to do 17 sec in mine. '02 model with 20 less hp than the newer TBs, no posi, and a bunch of heavy stereo boom in the back and soon some chrome 20s, and in need of a tune. Though I did manage to beat a Dodge Dakota in it shortly after getting the truck before all the heavy stuff was added. After driving an LS1 '02 WS6, m6 for years (traded it for this truck) anything not on par with that feels like I'm creeping.. so creep is what I shall do, but creep in comfort and style.

I do want to improve my fuel economy though, so I ordered a new air intake and am considering a PCM4Less tune.

I think the Hyundai will kill you to be honest.

I took mine on the track for fun last friday. It was pretty hot and humid, everyone was doing bad times...

I pulled a 16.9 @ 83 mph.

I did a 17.1 on my first run with the trunk loaded up to the top (I was going camping for the weekend and stopped at the track with my popup trailer, unhitched it and went to make a run).

I tought it would be faster than that. Granted I have a 2002 with 3.73 gears and it's fully loaded (SLT model) but I tought it felt faster.

I did the exact same time 2 years ago with my 1999 Honda CRV (140 hp) witch felt so much slower than the Envoy...
