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

Thanks for posting. I'am sure with more track time you'll see better numbers.

Just because you can afford it don't mean you can drive it. My 5.0 was idling off the line and made 113 mph passes with zero traction in the first two gears on an unpreped track. He needs some serious practice. And so do I lol. My camaro hasn't even seen the track yet...

You'll get better. Your car will also run much better in cooler air. Another big tip is show up at least 1 hour before you plan to run your car. Let your car sit with the hood open.
Then when racing begins, get near the front of the line so you don't have to start and stop constantly moving up the line.
Do a nice little burnout (even on the stock tires). Get them nice and warm.

Launch very gently like you would on the street. You might think that will produce a slow run, but it will actually improve your 60' times.

The air temp for his first pass was around 60 degrees. The track was warm as the sun was out. The car sat in the staging area for well over an hour before the track opened and started letting people make passes. They sprayed down the VHT and he was one of the first cars to make a pass after the VHT was sprayed. A decent burnout was done. The DA was 2485 at the time of pass (track altitude is 2210')...I guess what I'm trying to say is that the conditions for his pass were pretty darn good.

I'm sure it's the driver in this case but the times for the ZL1 are kind of a let down overall.

the zl1 has posted some easy low 12 second times but the trap speeds have been disappointing. i was expecting 119-120.

I got you confused with the other ZL1 that ran slow times in warm temps.

Based on your conditions, you should have run pretty well. 60 degrees is a great air temp for racing. The elevation will slow you down, but forced induction shouldn't be affected all that much by higher elevation.
