I'm not hating at all but I was expecting a lower time.. I'm very proud of the Chevy team and what they accomplished.. IMO the Z/28 was hyped way to much...Thinner glass, carbon ceramic brakes, smaller rims, 305's in all corners, no a/c or radio, and no power seats... I was expecting very low 7:30's.. they need to do a re run in better weather.

Agreed I think that rain towards the end of the lap really forced the driver to back off a bit as the car looked to be getting loose

It sucks, they probably had a window they had to accomplish everything and ran out of time, the ZL1's best time was its last run.

here.... the car still never gets over 161mph. Down on horsepower, better cornering speed. On that track it is a winner.

C'mon people. The car is only ABOUT 300#'s lighter. It was running on a cold, damp track. I don't care how hot the tires were, without the track being somewhat warm, that was a very respectable time. Let's wait until better conditions, then bash it if you must.

I wasn't bashing at all.

It could be. I know the ZR1 will redline near 160-170ish in 5th.

Great video. Still not worth my Mylink radio or the snowball AC. I am really interested in seeing who will actually man up and give up their ZL1 for one. No radio is one thing, but no AC will make a thug cry. Great looking machine nonetheless.

Looks like he had to back off quite a bit even midway. Should be room to gain. That thing sounds good.

The article said they figure they lost about 6 seconds because of track conditions, so that's in your ballpark. Still impressive seeing a 'street' car on the track at 160 with the wipers on.
