Are you hot lapping that thing. Your runs are 6 minutes apart. Second pass the heat sure sucked wind out of it.

And yes I'd like to know how you keep it from hopping???

I believe the 60' is what slowed it down lol These cars are not fords and you can make several back to back to back runs........ Let alone sustained RPM for a road course.

my car never wheel hops either! I've cut a better 60' than you, but ran a tenth slower hahaha!

I wish more folks were trying these things out on the strip. They're a blast to drive!

EDIT: so, I just remembered I attached my 8.03 pass to a post last year in may. I'll have to get a picture of my 7.91 slip on a 1.850 60'

64ft time: 3.27 secs (!!)
1/4 mile time: 14.07 secs
finish speed: 113.5 mph

578 rwhp
325/30/R19 Trofeos all round
50psi front
20psi rear

slow but fun


That was 4250rpm launch and no burnout to warm the tyres. Way too much wheelspin and hence rubbish 60ft time, but the rest of the run and gearchanges were pretty good I would say. Z/28 definitely not in it's element but one day I'll have another go to see if I can get in the 12s.

Meantime though, back to circuits and trackdays!

I keep getting asked to take my Z28 to the 1/4 mile track. I think it would be an embarrassment to the car. To many people don't understand how different the set ups are. With only Trofeos and -1.8 Camber in the rear I know damn well this car wont launch at all.

Im surprised no one mentioned the clutch. My stock clutch is way to soft. It slips going in and out of the garage or on and off the trailer. Im certain trying to launch it wouldn't be a pretty sight.

Rather then look bad in the 1/4 mile I would like to find away to educate people on the difference. Or lets get a few demons on the road course and make them look stupid.

Loosely following the theme of this thread, what's the top speed you've gone in your Z/28?

I'll start. 135. (Still stock)
