I was worried for them when they said they had never tried blending before. I was worried sick about mine, even though the guy that did it said it wouldn't be a problem. I was fully expecting to...

My body man matched my hyper blue perfect. Did a fender only and a small section above the side marker on the front bumper cover. Absolutely can't tell a difference.

First I've heard of the vibration or the one wheel peel. Good luck figuring it out. Maybe something is going on with the passenger side half shaft. Binding a bit and causing both issues. Idk.

Do the rotors actually touch? I always thought they kept a super small gap between them. Looks like it would be catastrophic if they touched. Like they would start building tons of heat until melt...

That's impressive. I was already seeing definite low 9s if you get it to leave harder and drop the 60 a couple of tenths, but sounds like you might be knocking on 8s if you get the fuel and launch...

I thought the same thing. Especially with them standing up there filming. It could be real easy to step off while being distracted with what they're talking about.

I tried line lock the first few passes with the car, but quickly stopped using it due to it taking too long to get there and then get back out of PTM and turn all the nannies off. After finding out...

Bolt pattern is slightly different and offset is way different. If they had been the same, I would've already borrowed some drag radials from a friend of mine, to see what kind of difference they...

Yes. That's the fastest one that has been posted. Pretty sure some guys have went faster than that, but just aren't on the forum or didn't post their slip.

That's what I was thinking as well. The NPP would be useless without the inner tips going through a muffler.

There's really not a lot of helpful info for drag racing in Cosworth. It does show minimum and maximum: tire temps and pressures, coolant temps, oil temps, trans temps, etc. I wouldn't say it's...

One of our fellow ZL1 owners has shown a .1 and 3 mph gain by removing his Rotofab. I'm sure there's a gain to be...

That's exactly the tire I was looking at once I find a wheel.

I've not tested it to know 100%, but I think the only thing you would lose is the aggressive downshifts at the end of a pass to help you slow down. I think it would still upshift exactly the same. ...

60s were terrible that day. Worst I've had in a long time.

Fraxum, that sounds almost totally backward. A cool engine should pull less timing than a hot one. Sure. You need the oil and trans temps to be warm, but you shouldn't have to make sure they're at...
