just got my latest isue of gm high tech
they will have a 02 around 6/24 for testing at e town they are hoping for 12 flat or even going 11.90 i dont think so not on factory rubber
i would like to see 01 & 02 battle it out
i think it would be close everything being equal

What GMHTP will probably do is use the stock Goodyear Eagle F1s but they'll put traction compound (ie VHT) down on the track.

That coupled with the roll-out factor in drag strip clocks along with good air, tires that are plenty hot, a press-fleet car (which will probably already been verified as capible of 12.45 by GM's Proving Ground folks) and a very good driver, I think they'll see 12.2, maybe.

11.9?
Well...
(giggle)
...if they do it, I'll buy Johnny Hunkins dinner the next time I see him.

Last oct when I got my car and some of the N.J. members had a hard time believing my times I went down. My best run while there was traction was 12.18 114.xx If the air dencity is close to deacent I think I could get an 11.9 with the 02. If only I could get the chance. GM HI TEC be happy to bring my ZO6 down for comparison if we can switch off driveing?? serious offer RIC
