I agree that comparing a V6 to a ZL1 is kind of apples to oranges, but when I mentioned seeing the best 60' times using that technique, I was referring to V6 times. For instance, scrming would hold the brake with the left foot while holding the rpm at around 1,000 (give or take) with the other foot. At the last yellow he'd release the brake and apply the throttle and he claimed he was getting fairly consistent 2.0 or 2.1 60' times. This was always with stock tires and nannies on.

I'll chime in. My best 60' times where with the nannies off, break stand to 2-2.3k and let her rip.

This is with drag slicks but have had good success going sub 2 with Goodyear street tires although I would launch at a little less, around 1.8k (psi @ 20lbs)

Slips below were with the slicks but have gone 1.93 with the street tires.

I have made 149 passes, following the help and guidance from scrming. when on street tires I was leaving at 1000 rpms. Anything higher I was spinning. Did those with nannies on. Any time I had them off I would spin for sure. But traction is limited at our track. When I have run my new (used) drag radials, I have the nannies off and have tried different RPM's to leave on. I wll be going to the track again in the fall and testing some more on what to try for launching at. My best 60' recently was a 1.936

Same here Mike (as far as launching I only have like 50 passes under my belt). In Indy I was messing around with my launch RPMs during the open racing Saturday afternoon and even with the amazing track prep my best 60ft' on my street tires was without doing a burnout, leaving everything on and launching at idle. I played around with launch RPMS and would spin the higher I launched at. I'll have to mess around with it again once I get my trailing arms installed but the local track is not prepped well.

Not a record but thought I'd share this. Day 2 Summit Super Series Event #5 @ South Georgia Motorsports Park.

This is from round 1. I also won round 2 with an almost identical 14.356 and .057 R/T and the same dial. Semifinals I slipped a bit and did a 14.397 with a .174 R/T and lost to the person I beat in round 1. I should have dialed up a smidge and/or cut a better R/T (his was a .022 and had a good run too).

Oh well, can't win 'em all I suppose.

Looks my last trip to the track this year will be Aug 30th... With any luck I can break the 13 second barrier... Doubtful, but one can hope right?

Current fast time and mods below... Will hopefully have 3.27 geared diff, and FTI billet 3600 stall converter installed before the next race.

Curious why August will be your last run? What are the temps around there? I understand if you can't due to whatever reasons, but wouldn't it be best to get your last runs in a month or two when its cooler out?

Well it may not be the last... Every once in a while they do this thing called Midnight Mayhem, and run the track from 10pm to 2am, and it's about the best shot for decent cool air this late in the season. This next one is Aug 30. Seemed like a good chance to get some good air.

Looks like there is still a couple races in sept, and a couple in oct before the track closes down.

HEY! SCREW YOU!

Honestly I'm in the V6 FI and bolt on section more than the ZL1 section. However this thread I've been bad about..

The OP with times should be up-to-date now.

BTW everyone, if you haven't noticed rtcat600man now has control of the list. Since I no longer have my V6 I'm checking this section less and less. Since he has been doing a great job keeping track of the 1/8th mile fast list it made since to hand control over to him.

Any new boosted cars I've been missing out on? Hows sycraft's ride doing with the new clutch?
I took my car to Tail of the Dragon back on Aug 4th, so I've kinda abandoned 1/4mi activities in place of other handling and braking (and possibly clutch :/ ) upgrades...Lets just say there was some fade on all sides (brakes, clutch) while I was up there. The car is also just sitting now until I do some major fluid swaps.

I had just started the car up for the first time at noon and raced it that night. DA was 2500+ during the runs. Here is a video of the 4 runs I made, along with the DA:



Best timeslip (Right lane):
nice dude I've seen one of your vids on youtube with your wife , i believe i even asked you a few questions there ^.^ you have a nice car . What made you decide on a supercharger instead of a turbo? because from what i've heard turbo's should be a better option for the v6.

Are these times at showroom weight or is everything including the kitchen sink been taken out? When i see these times for STOCK and see some with mods and FI only slightly quicker i have to wonder how real the times are or if weight reduction was done.

I can guarantee that the one on the top of the bone stock list was just that bone stock and no weight reduction what so ever. I personally know the owner and was at the track the day he ran that time.

As for time difference and slightly quicker, thing of it this way, He ran a 14.247 with 312 hp. I ran a best of 13.664 with all my bolt ons. This is a 0.583 improvement. I would say that is pretty damn good for the bolts on that I have.

I'd guess a lot of it is weather, location, and of course, driver ability?

I can drive 4 hrs to the track up north and pick up .2 just from the elevation change and good air.

Heck, you picked up that much just from the license plate braket.

I doubt anyone would lie and leave something out to be on a list that doesn't really mean anything to be honest. I think DA and of course drive ability have a lot to do with it.

For every SS running 13.0 or faster there's a dozen or more that are lucky to break into the 13s at all. Not any different for the LS/LT cars.

I still haven't even put one on, still rocking the temporary permit... I'm saving that gain for when I pull out all the stops and have to start playing with aerodynamics. lol

Lowest it has ever been here since I've been racing the 5th gen Camaro locally is ~1950 if I remember right... Typically from june-oct while the track is open it will range from ~2500 to 4000...
