    Had the pleasure of smoking a tuned zr1 vette at the track today. Hot humid day so i was running 11.20s today instead of my typical 11.00s the zr1 managed a 12.35. I did not get lined up next to him in the quarter...he was avoiding me. I did however get to him later on in 1/8th mile racing. Winds picked up so the track had us doing 8ths the 2nd half of the day. Again....bad air today i ran 7.37 @97 mph and he was at 7.97 @ 90 mph. Ill post the video later this evening. My reaction time was pathetic on that race as i did not wanna red lite and blow it haha. My best today was .009 with an average of .040

    How do you know it was tuned? Was he on street tires? If driven properly he should have gone faster than that. But a win is a win.

    I know its tuned because he owns the regions tuning shop and he said it was tuned. He had drag radials on. Maybe he just couldn't handle stick shift. Either way....he got his ass handed. I wish i coulda races him in the 1/4. But wind and dust on the track dropped us down to 1/8th

    Ok stick shift cars suck in the quartermile. Good kill, I would destroy 6 speed Hellcats just like you would.

    bottom line he smoked a ZR1. stop trying to make excuses. and who cares what you would do? Its not about you.. Its about bighit2883 smoking one of GM's finest and fastest cars and doing it in style and grace! Not being all pompous about it like you cant seem to avoid whenever you post.

    I gave him his due mr president.And i didn't say that crap you beat the driver and not the car. Autos rule over 6 speeds in drag racing.

    Even if we put me in my m6 hellcat which i ran 11.69 with in the qt it still would have killed his qt mile time of 12.35.

    I have a 2010 ZR1 with intake tune and exhaust. dynode at 620 rwhp. I can tell you the car is impossible to drive once you tune it. You have to be a very good driver. My launch control cant handle it and will just shut the car down. I am on street tires and at 60mph it breaks loose til 90. When I do race its playing catch up because they always get the jump. I know I could get new tires and do some things but I don't drive the car enough and honestly I would rather drive the hellcat.

    Zr1 is typically a stout competitor. Big tug of war on that in Corvette land between it and C7 Z06

    That's just a bad driver my buddy has a stock 2010 and it's gone as fast as 10.71 on street tires and it traps around 129, with great DA it's trapped as high as 132. Its all about the driver with those ZR1's, in the right hands they can be formidable even in stock form and beastly on the hwy.

    Here Bo, discuss what happens here btw a ZR1 and a properly driven Hellcat. Notice after I spot him a few car lengths what a Hellcat can do.

    Oh and folks this is on stock wheels and the little Pirelli PZero 275/40's all around!
