2012 ZL1 vs vintage and modern Challenger -drag race video's

Here's some video from my local track this evening of a 2012 ZL1 running a 13.78 at 110 mph and a 13.32 at 109.8 mph. My wife took the video the first one and I took video the second.
DA was around 2500 (track elevation is 2210'), the outside temp was in the hi 50's-low 60's range, and the car was a 6 spd manual.

If I purchased a ZL1 and it put down numbers like that, I'd light the POS on fire at the end of the track and walk home.

dudes probably just a little shy of dumping the clutch at 3-4K on a brand new 50K+ car. Just needs some seat time, and watching folks with the same ride that know what they are doing.

I believe torque managnent was killing us that night, when launching the car would take off and fall flat on it's face.

I wonder if he was using the launch control? You'd assume so, but who knows for sure.
