Talking Whats the fastest you have driven your ZL1?

what is the fastest you gone in your ZL1 -- whether on a track...

Just got through the break in period and had a stock camaro and a mustang challenge me last night. It was fun, but what scared me was that I hadn't even tested the car's limits even closely.

79 still in the break-in period but cant wait until I can redline that baby. Just installed CAI last week and changing balancer and pulley this weekend so when I do hit that magical 1500 miles. I'm sure there will be a perminent GRIN !

Not everyone lives their lives on these forums 24/7 so they might not see something that might have already been posted.

Back to the subject. I've seen 145 on my Z's speedo and had plenty of throttle left.

I was 160 with plenty of road and throttle left. I was getting a lot of vibration. I didn't expect that. I think I will have my wheels re-balanced.

137, was not a struggle at all to get there. Very comfortable at that speed, as long as it's on a closed course.

I've had mine up to 152MPH but figured no one would believe me so I took a pic. Sorry it's blurry, I was pretty nervous.

Why does your ZL1 have a pre-2012 speedometer?

Tells to how much time I spend on this site when I can tell you the model year of a speedometer.
