That's not a good thing either though, right? I know that high elevation affects NA much more, but you don't think the ZL1 would benefit at all from a run at a low elevation?

Correct. It would most likely trap 1 mph higher and gain a very small amount in the 1/4.

My favorite part of the video was Randy's assessment of the vehicle. Good stuff.
Exactly, this dude proved simply knowing how to bang gears with mode 5 on will net u very low bottem 12's all day long. Than knowing how to actully use the clutch and gas pedal will get u into the 11's.
Btw this is an extension of the motortrend review. ignition is a sister reviewer of motortrend.
Bring on the 2012 GT500SVTPP, for crying out loud.

Nice video, thanks for posting.

So far, it seems like all videos and reviewers have been driving manual cars, I am wondering if any of these guys will get their hands on the auto version to compare the differences.

LMAO. Calm down and dont have a heart attack. I guess no review will ever be good enough for you because "you heard" it will do better.

Exactly. What I think that this video showed is what some already knew, and that is that a 1964 1/2 Mustang based on a Falcon suspension with a 170 CID 101 HP inline 6 would clearly outperform the 2012 ZL1!
