Wow!! That is real impressive! Thanks for sharing.

For me, the street racing thing was over a long time ago. I did it, had a blast doing it, survived it, and I'm glad to make it out of that time...

I see a bunch of high hp ZL1s, but no times. Why?

I understand that we all have our reasons for modding our cars, I'm just a bit surprised at the lack of track times for all these builds. I can't believe that all this power is only being used in...

The only Hellcat I've lost to was one on slicks. Even that margin was only .05. 11.05 to my 11.10. I think the ZL1 matches up very well with the hellcat until you put a set of drag radials on them....

I agree that a tuned M6 ZL1 would probably be very close to the 10s on drag radials in good air. The autos are hampered by severe computer intervention when the car hooks, the manual is way worse...

Though the hellcats may be a bit underrated from the factory, from what I've seen, the ZL1 matches it in 1/4 mph. The hellcat feels raw in nature compared to the Camaro, but doesn't mean that the ZL1...

Like I said, I don't think his time is too far off...I do question the mph though. 104 mph in the 1/8 is ok, but I think he should be somewhere in the high 120s to low 130s with those mods. It...

Something is definitely going on. The time isn't too far off in my opinion, but he should definitely be seeing more than 21 mph after the 1/8th. The DA wasn't too bad, but I think he'll see at least...

That's very true, but for the ones who prefer to leave well enough alone until the warranty is up, it would be great having the highest possible hp a chassis can handle as a starting point.

Dodge obviously has no problem stepping on their own toes, with the new Hellcat Redeye making just 11 less hp than the demon. What, if at all, will/can Chevy do in reply with the ZL1? Will they now...

If I'm not mistaken, RPM in NC ran 9.8s with their 865 hp package. I figure that should work out to somewhere around 720ish rwhp... give or take.
