2012 Camaro ZL1 vs 2008 Corvette vs 2012 Challenger srt8

I was hanging out at the tracks this past thursday. I observed 1/4 mile times on these three bad as rides. the zl1 and corvette had slicks and the challenger had stock tires on. Anyhow best times in the 1/4 mile: ZL1 12.3 Corvette 12.4 and unbelievably the Challenger 12.1. Every car owner claimed stock. The corvette had long tube headers. I did not know the challenger was moving the crowd like that. What you'll think.

As far as I know the record for a stock 392 Challenger is 12:25, so if he did run 12:10 and was telling the truth about stock he now holds the record. I ran my 100% stock 12 392 on Sat and ran a 12:46 @ 112 mph, with a 1.90 60' time. I know it could have went quicker though as I had to use all the TC nannies to not spin 1/2 way down the track. The auto 392s are very capable cars.

Basic tuning was introduced for the 11/12 SRTs a few weeks back by DiabloSport and from what I have read thus far it is making a big differance with some very low 12 sec passes being run by 392 Chargers.

ZL1 on slicks=12.3? A member of C5 ran an 11.7 on stock tires. Driver error I assume.

Was the rest of it stock too?

I wonder if the launch control on the 13 SRTs will help any.

Yes, bone stock. Check the ZL1 fast times list. There is also a thread about it with a picture of his timeslip.

Possibly, tunes just came out like last week and there is only 1 canned tune so far. When they get true full on dyno tuning then the 392s will be deep in the 11's since the only mods so far are a CAI and cutbacks. Now they can get headers, tb's, heads, cams, FI, you name it. Its about time.

Great, it's about time and lets hope that time is repeatable by other cars!

Hey man! It's Scott...the black ZL1 vert owner. Good to see you this past Thursday! For those who claim those times (zl1) are somewhat slow...considering that I have a vert and the track @memphis is slow at best...I think 12.3 is VERY respectable. I need a tad taller tire and my goal is 11.xx. Before I start to mod lol

Have a great night!!!

Scott

That is a slow time for a 08 LS3 Vette with LT's. You sure it was a 08? Vette should have been in the 11's if those other 2 cars were stock running those times at that track. What was the trap for all 3 cars. I also have a hard time believing bone stock 13 SRT8 running a 12.1 on street tires. Like someone else said, that would be a world record.

ZL1 best trap of 115
The vette is an '07...best trap was 115 also...

An base C6 vette on tires with headers is not going to run 11s every pass with just a ok driver! Yes it COULD... but as far as drivers go, most people are still stuck in the 12s with those mods!

If the SRT is a 13 with the new Launch control and an auto I can see it. The 11-12s without launch control and auto have hit 12.2 and it has been more than one that has done it. Givenm, that would have to be a damned good launch control!

HE just posted that it was a 2007 Corvette so now it makes sense. 07 Vette came with the 400hp LS2 not the 430+ LS3 that the 08+ Vettes came out with.

The guy who owns the 2007 vette is a good friend of mine...it is a fast car...but you are right...still not on par with a LS3....slightly modded or not...

Nothing wrong with the ZL...it was my first time out with it. I am more familiar with my HCI Z06..so I have to get used to the ZL all over again. And don't forget...the track at Memphis (to me) is a tricky track to run good times at.

I have no doubt with more seat time that I can get into the 11's. I was also running my drag setup from my Z06 which was a 25.5" tire...waaaaay too short for the ZL being an A6.

I actually ran 11.6. I know, I know...very slow...but the clutch that I put in (Katech LS9R) is NOT a drag strip clutch. The builder of my C6Z told me NOT to launch very hard with that clutch...so I didn't. The car is a 10 second car all day long...I just never pushed it that hard. Now on the street, is a different story.
