    Noone would ever use it, or put anything in the bed of the truck, never take it offroad, try to keep that pearl paint clean. All an Escalade is, is an Avalanche.

    I saw that on Lingenfelter's site like 1 or 2 months ago, he makes some beast machines. For $124,000, i think i would buy a Viper with money left over to make it run 10s.

    Run 10s? WTF? Vipers run 11s & 12s stock. If I'm spending that kinda cash on a Viper at Lingenfelter, It better run goddamn 8s.

    I've seen a Lingenfelter Twin Turbo Corvette Z06 run a 9.767 for Gods sake.

    Back to the Escalade...




    HOLY FUCK!!! I Want one! :worthy: :worthy: :worthy:

    I never said that i would go to Lingenfelter for a Viper, i said i would buy a Viper for $90,000 that it costs new and with the money left over make it run 10s. And Lingenfelter doesnt do Vipers anyway, Hennessy does. And the fastest Lingenfelter Corvette ran an 8.8 street legal. And Vipers run 12.2 stock. And even if Lingenfelter DID do Vipers, i dont think they would cost less than $150,000, so stfu

    Wow, such hostility. An SRT10 won't cost you more than $84,000 new. :eek:

    So for that extra $44k you stated, you could make it run 7s. :worthy:

    I think the Viper is more of a status symbol for old guys anyway. You don't see too many people actually using their engines.

    Big truck/SUV hybrids=teh gay
    The only reason people buy SUV's is so they have an excuse to drive while eating and/or drinking and/or talking on the phone and/or yelling at the kids while they try and drive into me. Or to tow stuff. If you're 5'2", get the fuck out of a Tahoe, Ho!
    Goddamn, I hate SUV's!

    you're so fucking stupid. Its more then an avalanch. Caddy EXT = awd, 6.0, and better options. Avalanch is the poor mans wanna be ext with 2wd or 4wd, 5.3 motor and silverado options.

    But the 427TT vette kills it. 0-60 in 1.97 seconds, 1/4 in 8.95 at 153. Fuck getting a ferrari or even the new bugatti, that shit is bad ass.
