Zl1 drag wheel
 
Looking for an 18" drag wheel that fits over the rear break caliper on the zl1. Would appreciate any ideas or links. If you have a setup with an 18" wheel + drag racial/slick. Feel free to post pics :)

Weld 17" RT-S wheels with Hoosier 28x10" slicks with skinnies upfront.
Fit perfect. No grinding
Just have to order wheels for stock SS and they will fit the Zl1 also

I was under the impression that the zl1 needed 18" wheels to clear the brakes. That's awesome if not!

Sprspt, Do you have any runs with those on there yet?

Sprspt 05-07-2012 09:02 PM

100 percent stock just slicks and skinnies.
11.43 @ 120.88
Video and pics when we get home.

Wow. That's impressive! Did you use ptm5 and launch mode? On stock tires we have been gettin lower 60 ft times in ptm3 and launch mode, rather than revving to 3-4k and letting the clutch out. Very impressive numbers

506JTF 05-07-2012 09:20 PM

Scratch the launch part. I watched the video and you seem to have the auto trans

Sprspt 05-07-2012 10:16 PM

Looks good looking for the same set up what tire size did you use?

Sprspt 05-10-2012 05:52 PM

28 x 10 / 17 out back
28 x 4.5 / 17 up front

EDsTT 05-11-2012 12:24 AM

how much lower is the zl1 than a ss ? do your welds hit the lower control arms ?

Sprspt 05-13-2012 10:50 PM

No issues what so ever.
Bolted them on and went to the track. No rubbing anywhere.

Nice run... you should start a new thread for this one... PTM 5 I assume... have you tried other modes?

I think we are going to have an easier time w/ tires/wheels on the ZL1... little more room back there now and the Brembos only got bigger on the front...

I ordered those exact wheels through ECS (East
Coast Supercharging) and got a great deal and great service....

Check with Matt @ ECS...

Thanks Sprspt for the info on the drag set up. I wanna get the exact same for my car. Might you have the exact part # for the front and rear wheels and front tire size handy or some further specs on the back spacing etc.?

Vette TPI 05-14-2012 10:09 AM

What pad height do you guys get on the Camaro with the big Brembo's? Because Someday I want to get bigger brakes for my Corvette but I'm wheel shopping for my car :D

I thought you had to change the lower control arm to use 17" wheels.

What part of his quotes don't you understand? How many more times does he need to say it before you believe what he said???

Man - I still swear by "15's...PERFECT amount side wall flex to stick. Just coils up, sticks and launches you! But don't know the fit issues on a Camaro. :iono:

Well you don't have to get huffy about it. If you don't have anything nice to say, then don't say anything.I had a friend that had a problem with 17" wheels hitting the lower control arm.

You're right...my apologies. I was in a negative mood at the time and took it out on you and didn't have a right to. I will play nice now. :thumbsup:
