    Repeat this ten times down the strip at this power level and then we can talk.

    I hope I'm wrong. Awesome number otherwise.
  2. I wouldn't be so quick to make that assumption......

    I wouldn't be so quick to make that assumption... The GT3 held up just fine against against the best of the best.

    Too much of a jump to even consider that a race... the Rs7 was damn near 3 cars out and probably around 45mph before the R8 got into it. Do we have data on trap speeds to get an idea on where it...
  4. M157: You make your buying decision based on which car...

    You make your buying decision based on which car squats the most off the line? Do you know how many variables, besides the power the car is making, are coming into play that determine that?
  5. M157: I'd be willing to bet that car traps ~135mph in...

    I'd be willing to bet that car traps ~135mph in the 1/4... you're telling me it picked up 40mph on the back half (probably about 5-6 seconds)? Impressive if so, but I'm having trouble believing it.
  6. M157: Yah, I was about to raise my BS flag... I'd...

    Yah, I was about to raise my BS flag... I'd imagine you'd have to run 150+mph in the 1/4 to hit 175mph in the 1/2.

    Stock C6 Z06 record on STOCK tires is 10.98 @ 128.9. Thats the only bone stock car in the 10's. Driven by Jamie Fuhman.

    Stock on non-stock tires is 10.7@130 with 9 cars under 11.00

    I was just pointing out that it looks like it takes a while for the turbo to get to full boil. The torque is still climbing far to the right side of the power curve which is pretty unusual in a...

    The ZR1 record is 10.26@135 on drag rubber. Given the power to weight ratios are damn near identical (5.49 vs 5.42) it is going to have to be the 8 speed that pushes it over the line. I think it...

    Very impressive... 11.469 @ 121.841 MPH for those who are wondering what it would have been at a DA of 0.

    Looks like it takes a while to spool up... that looks like a supercharged torque curve.

    I agree, and people have done it, but all of the fastest cars are running the stock blower.

    Not that there aren't a lot of seriously fast V's out on the road already, but I think you'll be hearing more about them soon now that prices on a clean '09/'10s are dipping into the sub $35k range.

    Record for stock blower only was set yesterday as well....

    The stock blower is very capable and, to my knowledge, all of the fastest V's are still running it. There are a few cars that have run solid 9's with it, motor only.

    OK, I get it now... this was the one in particular I was referring to:

    Haha, to be honest, I saw his name, dry heaved, and stopped reading. Any publicity is good publicity.... minus full page spreads in Autoweek about how you're being sued by countless customers for...

    Great time. Any weight reduction beyond the listed items?

    Nothing impressive considering this motor has been available for over 10 years so it was really just a matter of transferring existing parts and R&D to a new body. I will call BS on the stock motor...

    All that work and they can't even put a decent fender flare kit on the car? I'd be shocked if this thing didn't shred its tires to $#@! while accelerating or cornering. Is this just a show car or...

    Traps are shown at 3:40. 128, 116 & 109.

    Cool, I'm looking forward to it. One of these days I'm going to get around a tune/pulley on my V, but most likely not in time to make an article of it on your launch.

    I was just wondering why we never see any LSA love on here, but I'm pretty sure there are one or two stock blower/block/nitrous CTS-V's that have gone this fast or faster.
