I had that setup on my '16 SS. It was okay but like you grew to not like it. I did worry about needing a tow at the strip and wondered if they would wait for me to change it out to the hook and...

I was on my second ZL1 StoNSho and it bumped off after touching the pavement on a very small dip going like 5 mph. No splitter damage. The ZL1 is just too low for an under splitter bracket.

I changed first @ 1,000 and not since. I drag race often and so far no noticeable loss of oil at 4,000+. Going to the 0 weight next if I can find it.

I will go with Toyo R888Rs on 19" wheels and run therm all the time. Even with DRs ZL1s do not 60' very well, even the A10. GM bog for sure. A 1.7 like that is my best too but mostly 1.8s on the...

40 HP for me too. -1.500 DA 126 MPH barely. +2,000 DA 122 mph.

Although it is possible that...
