They said they were way off. They should have thrown it in 6th and pulled her to top speed. Then it might not have taken 5-6 runs.
He didn't run the RPMs all the way up. I was the one who said way off. I was betting it made 510RWHP. Someone else said 520RWHP.

So, how do you account for the numbers getting better with each run if no changes were made to the car? How much time was there between each run? One would think that making back to back pulls on a supercharged car would result in degradation in the numbers due to heat soak, not better numbers with each pull.

512 to the wheels sounds about right for a car rated at 580 at the crank. Congrats!

First one was 483 then a full pull resulted in 509. Sat for about 10 mins then two more pulls at 510, and 512. Then sat for another 10 mins then pulled a 509 then a 490. The dyno room was starting to warm up. The tuner said the last run he saw the car was pulling timing.
I took the video and posted it in behalf of Alex. If you lame asses wanna question everything then you should've showed up. I'm not a expert and unless you are keep your opinions to yourself. Thank you very, I don't care if you have a good or bad day.

Lighten up, Francis, nobody was questioning the numbers it put down. I only asked my questions because I have been around a lot of supercharged cars on a dyno and rarely do the numbers improve over time. It seems the ZL1 is pretty consistent, which I'm happy to see. You answered my questions and I thank you for that, but to suggest that I have to get on a plane and fly four hours just to witness something myself versus asking a few questions to folks who were there seems a little far-fetched, don't you think?

IDK who Francis is. That's the reason this is in the Cali section. Trying to cut down on the trolls from other regions. Yes heat soak eventually got the best of the car and it stopped making the same power numbers.

Totally bro! Alex is getting his new ZL1 dynoed and there will always be some douchebag to post up something negative and stupid to say. That's public forums.

Inferno... You're way off base by saying what you did. He just asked freakin question. Lighten up your panties, Nancy. I was wondering the same thing... how back to back pulls kept yielding higher numbers. Now I know better than to ask for fear of getting back lashed at. Chill man.

I didn't bother watching the video. You see on Camaro on a dyno, you've seen 100. Nice car tho!

Good then don't ask. It wasn't only him. I've know some of them to troll on other threads before. Sorry, but I don't wear panties probably like you do. Sorry if I'm being a ass today. Sometime these people post up stupid sh!t and it gets to me.

Not sure where I ever stated anything negative. Help me out here.

if that is a 18-20 percent loss it is putting down around 600-615 at the crank? Not sure if I am right about that.. but......
