Paco is so dedicated to the pursuit of excellence with this truck that it required us to shoot it twice. After the first shoot, he went back to work on the truck, making it work even better and upping the style quotient with new mods. Paco loves to race, and traction is at a premium when you are trying to hook up on 30-series rubber. Rather than run slicks, Paco swapped in a 4x4 system taken from an '08 Chevy Silverado Z-71. Four-wheel-drive on a lowered truck-that's what we were wondering. According to Paco, he engages the automatic system using an MSD timer that keeps the four wheels working for approximately two seconds during holeshots and then switches to two-wheel-drive mode once the truck gains traction. The system eats up a bit of power due to parasitic losses but more than makes up for it by keeping the tires from spinning obnoxiously while the competition takes off. Does it work? Paco says he's already smoked three Z06 and ZR1 Corvettes and a 2010 Camaro with the truck.

You want a recipe for sport truck success? Start with smoked 'Vette for dinner and a Camaro for a late night snack-that is the diet of a real sport truck. It's not easy, but Paco has it figured out and is quite philosophical about taking down opponents behind the wheel of his Chevy. He says, "It's nothing personal, it's just business".
