EDIT: I was thinking Pilot Sport Cups. My mistake.
I'm curious to see what the PS2s do. I'm still left wondering why ZL1 is running good years, while the flagships in GM's fleet are off the floor with PS2... Maybe Michelin didn't want to cut a new tire for another car or something else, but I still have a feeling at least those Sport Cups might make their way onto ZL1. It would be silly not to, IMO. We know they work, so let's get on the ball

I think it is so they have a trick up their sleeve for if / when the GT500 catches up. It would be easy to offer that option for 2013 or beyond and go back to the ring for a better time.

I think you're bang-on right. I'd really like to see those, an LS9 cam, and about 10 psi with those tires and a sending-off in a few years. I think some low-7:30s at the 'Ring would be possible More power for the straights, some more stick to go in hotter in the corners - mmm mmm good

ZL1 results!

I was reading automobile magazine, it layed out the track results for the ZL1. 0-60mph 4.3sec / 0-100mph 9.5sec / 1/4-mile 12.6sec@116mph. Is it true about the quarter mile result? It's hard for me to believe it because the SS is doing 12.8 sec on a good day. Tell me it's not true!

The Automobile magazine review of the ZL1, which came out on January 17th and has been discussed quite extensively here, appears to be one of the outliers in terms of ZL1 performance.

Times can vary quite a bit depending environmental conditions, including temperature, wind, track, etc., as well as with the driver, and testing methodology.

For example, Motor Trend achieved a 0-60 MPH time of 3.8 seconds and a quarter mile time of under 12 seconds for the ZL1 at Inde Ranch.

Contrary to popular belief the MR suspension will not allow the car to drive itself to good times.

But my question is how fast can I make it to the store to pick up milk. I already have an order into Sears for a 2nd fridge, just for milk runs ....
