Who's gonna be the first owner to go down the 1/4 mile?

So, now that people are starting to get these, how long til someone takes their new toy down the 1/4? Ginger's inaugural run was exactly a week after I got her with only 500 miles on her, so don't be shy!

I have a feeling we are going to see some speed shops run them before any private owners do. Either way, I'm ready for the videos!

I can't wait to see an auto equipped car run down a true 1/4 mile track with somebody driving the car who knows what they are doing, should be good

And if you do before the 1500 mile break-in will you void the "track" warranty?

I'm also anxiously waiting to see some 1/4 mile times from production ZL1's.

This is going to weigh EXTREMELY heavily on my decision of what I'm buying next. Barring any "factory freaks", if the best it can manage with a competent driver is low 12's with 11's being extremely rare to nonextistent.......well, we'll see.

I'll be driving back from Rodgers Chevrolet between now and that date, so confident I will have the 1500+ mile break-in by then!

Then the WHEELS/TIRES are up for sale............ Cause new ones are coming

Hennessey has a car in route that you know will hit the track behind their shop as soon as it gets there... probably won't see any numbers from them until the magazines get a hold of it.

My last one had 600 miles on it before I hit the track...

With a dead hook, 580hp at 4350lbs race weight will net 11.4 @ 118mph.
I expect a lot of guys times will be in the high 11's
