Weight is something power came overcome. However, traction is something power can overcome too. I think stock 11's are going to be hard simply because of problems putting the power down. Again, I hate to use a Ford as a reference, but it's all I've got, and I have trouble putting power down with my measly Boss motor. Launch control, helps but setting it just right takes a few passes.

how wide are your tires? If I remember correctly the fords have always had narrower tires/wheel combos. and they have also been known not to choose the best rubber. that's been one big gripe I've had with the gt500.

The camaro has some wide arse tires and that helps. as with the thread that was just posted with a 12.02 run on a bad day for tracking and little seat time. I'm sure we'll see a few hit the 11's in time, stock.

11s will come. Just as mid-high 12s came for the SS...11s will come with the ZL1. I doubt any of them have been properly broken in, yet...and drivers have CERTAINLY not become adequately comfortable with the car, yet.

It's just a matter of time, IMO. That's why I think it's very silly to come to any conclusions so early on.

Does anybody really doubt that there will be some ZL1's in the high eleven's in pure stock trim? Really? That's a quick car by any measurement regardless of what the new GT500 does.

Yeah I did it on drag radials, I also did it on the stock BFG's as well some time after. I ran 12.679 on the stock tires vs the drag radials which was the quickest stock tire time I believe. My r/t and 60' wasn't the best because I sort of babied it off the line to avoid wheel hop. It was around 1mph higher as well. I assume it was because the stock tires are lighter as well as the stickiness of the drag radials works against you in the top end a little bit. Either way I replicated the time a bunch of times on both tires, I have the gift of consistency. The 12.655 was the first 12.6 I ever ran. I used the drag radials because I wanted to save my stock tires obviously, but more importantly the drag radials didn't wheel hop. I was always afraid of fragging that rear end after the first time I experienced wheel hop. It definitely didn't feel good. I will admit though I never could get down to the 12.655 on the stock tires. I think it's ok though considering the ZL1 times being posted by the vendors are on drag radials.
