What a day, about 10 cars ran today at our local track, it was so nice not having to wait in any lines, deal with motorcycle clean ups etc.. we just pulled up and ran all day!

2006 Z06 RedStock...blew the clutch during the day :(

2007 Z06 M.Y, Headers, ported t.b/intake and Jeremy's tune 472/452 11.83 @ 122

2005 Corvette see sig 12.88 @ 109

2005 Corvette 6 speedHeaders+Exhaust

1984 Corvette 383..see sig 12.62 @ 109

2005 SL 65 AMG 11.91 @ 117

2004 Viper Supercharged 660rwhp 11.9x @ 121

2005 Dodge SRT-8 13.0 @ 103

2004 Porsche Cayenne Turbo 13.9 @ 100 isnt bad for a 7,000lb SUV :laughing:

2004 Porsche Turbo S Blew transmission on 1st run :( that will cost a pretty penny.

2004 BMW M3

I drove the M.Y. Z06, C6 Vert, our 2005 and 1984 Corvettes, Porsche Cayenne Turbo, M3 throughout the day. Not that bad.


First run against my Dad in the 05

My Dad taking off

660rwhp S-Charged Viper:surprised

One very fast Benz!

604hp and 738tq is nice!

My Dad and I had a little grudge race going, I drove the 84 he drove the 05 one time, I got the hole shot and won the race but he went like 3 tenths quicker:laughing: We then switched cars I hole shotted him again but he turned the fastest time in the 84 Vette so far at a 12.622 @ 109.90:surprised the fastest that car has been before was a 13.05..1.7x 60's help a little :laughing: Heres the video of the run http://youtube.com/watch?v=PwB4CABneFA

After getting a couple runs under my belt for the day I took the drivers seat in my Uncle's new M.Y Z, all I can say is what a machine! This was only the second time I drove it, I believe my first run was a 12.2 or 12.4 I cannot remember, wheel spin was bad with the run-flats but I pulled around and took it easier on the launch earning an 11.9 @ 121:surprised Now I'm getting the hang of it.

I pulled up for a third time racing the SL 65 AMG who has consistently been running 11.91's at the beginning of the day. The Benz was no match for the Z I ran a 11.83 @ 122 on run-flats:surprised :laughing: compared to his 12.4 @ 116 I flipped him off after I crossed the line.:laughing:

I feel for the supercharged Viper-owner... only 11.9 with 660rwhp, I think he should get some drag radials:laughing: Anyway, sounds (well... looks) like a great day!:thumbsup:

Yeah, it was hard getting cars with street radials to get below a 2.0 60' My dad was the only one to cut a 1.7x but that was on 315 BFG Drag Radials.

The VY Z06 and Viper will have D/R's next time we go to the track, so expect numbers to be in the low 11's high 10's:partyon:

121mph for the viper still doesn't lend itself to 10's, even with dr's , unless he lifted somewhere down track. I was running over 121mph in my 2000 TA at the track for low 11's on street tire. It loos like you had a good time at the track, makes me itchy to get to my local track. Good pics:thumbsup:

What a blast that day must have been!

Great new best ET also. The '84 has just been waiting for you to make friends with traction.

:devil:
Yes, I know. My Dad told me when he got back that it ran a 12.622 I was like thats pretty good for the 2005 Vette he's like no that was in the 84. I was like :surprised

It was a successful day!

True for the Viper, with D/R's deep 11's for sure, the Z has potential to go mid to high 10's with D/R's as well, Ranger did it with a stock Z, this one has a few goodies:thumbsup:
