Fastest run was attained by using a standard street start with no brake torque. Slight wheelspin off the line, but an otherwise uneventful launch. Power is average down low, but there is a noticeable surge in power above 4,000 rpm. Shifts were very smooth at 5,300 rpm. No redline on the tach so we didn't try manual shifting.
Stops were long for the class at around 150 feet. We suspect these pads haven't adequately broken in yet. Pedal feel is about average for a truck with a quick initial bite. The ABS system is very refined with little kickback.
Throwing a full-size truck through the slalom is never easy. The Silverado's new suspension kept it very stable, however, so once I got used to its size the truck was easy to control. As it approached the limits, the tires gave out very progressively allowing me to push it hard throughout the entire run.
