Has anyone bolted up a pair of slicks and let her rip down the drag strip?

I'd be interested in seeing the numbers and knowing if you left the rear axles at the stating line. On a stock car.

I've got to imagine a low 11 maybe even high 10 1/4 with full throttle launch and full traction.

Al O. from GM has said before in videos, that they have two engineers who's sole task is to see if they can break the axles or the diff, and so far they haven't broken either of them yet.

Seriously. Ive seen 11.7 on stock tires posted. Never seen a number posted from a stock car and full slicks. Just curious. I would imagine a few tenths at least from slicks.

Totally agree and seen the video as well.

BUT, have they ever thrown a set of slicks on the car?

Hey all,,,,haven't got enought miles on my "Z" to track yet but I bought a 2007 GT500 recently with very few miles....could not for the life of me get it to hook on the street tires so started in 2nd and ran a 12.41 and trapped @ 127.31.....any idea what that trap might translate to if I could get some traction? Just bought a set of drag radials but haven't had a chance to put them on yet.....I really want to get a time on this car so I can compare to my ZL1....
And no I don't like the Shelby more than my Z.......
Scott...

I can tell you right now if your trapping 127 you are gonna be deep 11's probably even in the 10s with proper traction. So whats all done to it?

Put a new supercharger and headers on it....car has just over 2000 miles on it and is quite the mover...have been amazed what some small changes have done...still need to get the "Z" to the track though.....

I would say a new supercharger and headers are not "small" changes. But nonetheless, I am glad you are enjoying it, would be cool to have a GT500 and ZL1.

Agreed...not really small but I was thinking more about what some people are doing such as heads, a cam, gears, as well as the Supercharger and headers.....compared to many it seems like it was "Not a big job", how about that?

You launched in 2nd and still trapped 127 damn. Putting headers on the GT500 is harder than swapping the SC. You def need some DR's. Gonna be hard to get wider than 285 on the rear though. Can't wait to see what the ZL1 will run as well

I've seen several GT500s with 305's and a couple with 315's. The owners claimed no mods to the car, just proper back spacing on the wheels.
