Yeah, that is SO much nicer than the Extreme. What kind of specs does the Lightening have anyways? Does it use the 5.0?

Is it based on the F-series body? I don't think that I've ever seen one in person. But plenty of Extremes. (Alaska)

Speaking of Extremes, arent they just a basic S-10 with extra ground effects and the 4.3L?

The Lightnings come with a supercharged 5.4 liter V8. The whole drivetrain has been beefed up to handle the conservatively rated 360 hp and 445 torque. Stock form, they do about 13.9 sec. With a chip and filter down to 13.5 sec. Visit http/www.nloc.org for more info.

Where are you in TX? I live in Shreveport, you can check out the pics of my L and Cobra under 95 Cobra 00Lightning.

I ran a best of 13.76 at 98 mph into a 15mph wind. Truck was bone stock with 9500 miles on it. Another stock 2000 was running 13.6s and 13.7s all day with a freakish 13.49 thrown in. The 2001s are running 3-4 tenths faster than the 2000s. Many are getting 13.3s-13.4s stock.
