track times for 08-09 Z06

They had one at our track last night. still had paper plates on the car. 1st pass he ran a 10.5@ 128
2nd pass he broke something in the rear end on launch.

Nice car, but is that about normal times for them?
I know he had at least exhaust on it, just because I've heard stock Z06's before and this one didn't sound anything like stock, but not in a good way.

The magazine times are roughly 11.7 @ 125. So he wasn't making much more power than stock, I'd guess maybe drag radials and some bolt-ons. Possibly different gearset rather than bolt-ons. Junkie would probably know a whole lot better about what Corvettes can do
