Whats the fastest you have driven your ZL1?
 
what is the fastest you gone in your ZL1 -- whether on a track...

Just got through the break in period and had a stock camaro and a mustang challenge me last night. It was fun, but what scared me was that I hadn't even tested the car's limits even closely.

I think I got up to 140 once.

Are we going to have yet ANOTHER one of these threads?

79 still in the break-in period but cant wait until I can redline that baby. Just installed CAI last week and changing balancer and pulley this weekend so when I do hit that magical 1500 miles. I'm sure there will be a perminent GRIN !

You know u can always IGNORE yet ANOTHER one of these threads, don't ya?

Not everyone lives their lives on these forums 24/7 so they might not see something that might have already been posted.

Back to the subject. I've seen 145 on my Z's speedo and had plenty of throttle left.

I was 160 with plenty of road and throttle left. I was getting a lot of vibration. I didn't expect that. I think I will have my wheels re-balanced.

Brownster 07-09-2013 03:22 PM

Somewhere around 140 in 4th gear hit redline and ran out of road.

137, was not a struggle at all to get there. Very comfortable at that speed, as long as it's on a closed course.

Dvjason 07-09-2013 03:45 PM

165mph with throttle left and unbelievably solid. Felt like lots of throttle yet.

That! Definitely still pulling hard.

I haven't pushed mine yet but I did see 176 when I bumped the redline in 5th on my way home from the ADM shop.... First drive with the upgrade package.

I've had mine up to 152MPH but figured no one would believe me so I took a pic. Sorry it's blurry, I was pretty nervous.

Why does your ZL1 have a pre-2012 speedometer? :popcorn:

Tells to how much time I spend on this site when I can tell you the model year of a speedometer.
