650HP
live axle
3850lbs
but they are never able to put the power to the ground though... thats why with more power equals more spin... we all know this LOL

races were close at the onset, the Shelby pulled 1 car length in every scenerio and the gap increased as the speed increased

Just cause the live axle? the COPO Camaro uses a live axle too...

I had been thinking the same thing about Ford not getting the power to the ground, but we aren't going to know for sure til it's actually out, but on paper, it's looking good for them.

Im confident that when Al O. said the ZL1 is still going to be faster I have faith... plus Ford has already backed out of a challenge by Chevy so

I believe the OP. I don't believe he is a troll, he's been a member for 3 years, not just a recent member. It's sad the ZL1 didn't woop ass, but to be honest, all cars are different and maybe it needs more break in time, or who knows. Could've been the drivers experience as well. Chevy should've seen it coming and lightened up the ZL1 a bit, I know I love the ZL1, but I am somewhat disappointed IMHO. It's the modern HP wars so let's see what Chevy has under their belts to counter the 2013 GT500...

That was for the 'ring. I'm confident that the ZL1 can handle the GT500 at that, but I'm talking about the 1/4 mile.

The guy in the gt500 obviously is going to tell you it's stock just to feel superior. I highly doubt it was stock.

Ford needs to hurry up with this car so we can get real world times and stop all the speculation. I'm so ready for this to get settled. Hopefully only 2 more weeks til that HOTROD shootout http://blogs.hotrod.com/hot-rod-zl1g...off-18293.html

I'm not surprised at the results and it sounds like the GT500 is about a half a second quicker in the quarter. There will be other runs when the two kings meet for head to head battle and it will be all over YouTube.

Have never checked, but the 2011 gt500, bone stock runs mid 11's? Don't think so. I believe there is a video on this forum of a bone stock Z running a 12.02. Of course we weren't there for that. No way Chevy builds a car that couldn't beat the current competition gt500. The 2013 will probably be a little different

This really isn't worthy of a 64 page debate. First, the current GT500 is no slouch. Put a marginal driver in a ZL1 and a good driver in a 2011/2012 GT500 and the GT500 will win.

There is video evidence on this site of a stock ZL1 running a 12:02 after just two passes. In the hands on a good driver the ZL1 is no slouch; although, we all have to admit this car was not really produced for the drag strip.

The 2013 GT500 better beat the ZL1 very soundly at the drag strip or there is going to be a whole lot of crying in the Ford camp. With the kind of power that car produces, I do not see how it won't beat the ZL1 in straight line acceleration. I think even we the Chevy faithful will have to admit stock for stock the 2013 GT500 will have the advantage at the quarter mile.

This particular story sounds like a guy that maybe didn't get all that he could out of the ZL1. Just my opinion.
