GT500 VS ZL1....my death

I had some very competitive runs with a modded ZL1 with an auto last night.

It was a best of 3 runs with the ZL1 taking 2 out of 3 races.

The vids (missed the 1st race):

Over all, it was a great night racing with muscle car enthusiasts.

Congrats to the dude that beat me, him and his ride deserved the win....at least until next time. LOL

I raced Dan last night Dennis. He ripped up the track with a 10.68. Both of your cars are deadly.

Thanks for posting islander033. It was a fun night of racing against you and ZL1#992. It is great to hang out with a group of people with a smile on their face win or lose. Luck was on my side last night.

...I have a feeling this is not over.

Love to see this. Competing and having fun, rather than getting all serious and pouty about it. Nice rides, both of them.

You know I love this, two bad ass street cars going at it, having fun! Thank you for the post.

All this takes me back to the late 90s - mid 00s and makes me appreciate how special a car I had way back when. It was a 86 Mustang GT with a 347ci stroker motor built by Ed Curtis of Flowtech Induction. It was a full interior car with a cage, and had a few tricks to it but still could drive anywhere on the street. That car ran 11:20s on motor and 10:30s with a 100-shot on DRs. She was competive for a few years in true street events but the bar soon moved taking 9-sec to be in the hunt. Now she didn't handle worth a dam, but she sure was fun. Racing that car against the street muscle of the time including 5.0s, Camaros, Grand Nationals, was a blast and IMO is what building a car is all about.

Looking at these new supercars, sporting 550-680 hp stock, only to be modded with new superchargers, pulleys, cams, gears, headwork, tunes, etc, etc, yet running slower than my poor mans hotrod that made 200hp stock makes me wonder are we really moving forward with modified street performance or backwards?

Just to clarify, islander was running against trackman in this round of racing, trackman's car runs an auto with a few more mods than mine. I'm running mid 11's for now. I'm filling up my mod fund for this winter, probably going to go with a set of mast heads and 100 shot. Still shopping around. Lol

Thanks! All this extra weight for safety and such is a bit harder to make fast.
