New Best - 10:20 @ 136

No modifications were made to the ZL1 from last week to this week aside from a little tuning. Here is my new best for the KDi stage 2 ZL1:



I know some of the members were there and got some video of the slower passes. It was nice meeting you all.
I left the GoPro on for hours again and the battery ran out. Sorry, no new video this time.

And the 9s are so close! Was that a race gas tune?

Nice run Keith!

Yes, but the track adjustments to the tune are adding to my best each run. The trans keep giving me more.

Almost 29 mph in the second half. Get this car working a little better in the 330 and you will be well into the nines. Awesome job!

Nice run man! Sorry I had to leave before seeing that run. Nice meeting you last night. Let me know when you go again. I plan to go next Friday night. It will be their last Friday night T$T.

Yes, the last two passes that is exactly what I did. It has a bit more in it. We will keep racing.

I seriously love that hou're fine tuning and not just throwing more stuff on it instead.

Pretty sick times. How do you feel about the engine reliability on one of these things?

Also what difference do you think it would make on pump gas with mods like that?

10.24 on a rather lazy 1.57 60 ft.....LOTS and lots of potential ET in that car!

Keep it coming!

It is the only way to prove what works. 108 mph in the 1/8th! I am very pleased.

Yes, I need to tweak one area of the tune and it will go 1.52 or better.

The block and crank are fine. The mains will just slightly "walk" without studs at this power level.
The bearings are not really an issue either but after market with a trued up block will wear longer. The rods have proven to be stout so that just leaves the pistons.
Keep the fuel to it first and foremost, then make sure knock is not a big issue. I run about 11.25:1 afr and log each run. The window is narrower but if everything is monitored, it will live for years before needing to be freshened up or and won't blow up. If you want to go fast and keep it together at this power level it takes a lot of attention to detail.

Pump gas was about 25 hp less but I can really get after the timing on the big end.

Man...if you hit 9's, that's COPO territory. This is truly an all around amazing car. I don't care what anyone says, This IS an American Supercar, not just a pony car/sports car.

Get that torque converter and you are in the 9's! Have you changed the rear gears yet?

There is no need to change the gears. I will try for 9's again with good weather and possibly get that Converter ordered.

I hope to make it down to NC and do some track time and see your car.
So much potential with these cars, what a great time to be a car enthusist. I remember when I had my Buick Grand National we had some nice aftermarket upgrades, but we have so many more options now i'm like going through my second childhood.
