The only local strip is an 8th mile track.. I'm heading down there tonight. I'd like some idea of what these things run in the 8th... also maybe a comparison of what a stock C5 runs?

TIA.

I wanted to get home, and give you more than my Best run... but I am in the process of moving, so this is going to have to do...

60' 1.908
330' 5.306
660' 8.015
1/4 12.319
MPH 114.750

(This dragstrip doesn't give 1/8 Mph, and 1000' info.

But, another member inputed the data in a simulator and it came up with 90.37.

Hope this helps,

Nice time's on yours as well!

*how* did you get a 1.9 short? /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif I ran my f1's at 28 and 25psi in the rear and couldn't best the 2.1's...

I really don't want to invest in another set of rims and DR's right now...

I used a set of 5 year old Drag radials. Car had only 1100 miles on it. Usually I use the Drag Radials for the main reason of consistency... but they are past there life point now... even the 1.9's were with it spinning in 1st, and Violent Sideways into 2nd! Generally with good DR's it should be 1.8's. The F1's hook better on the street... but even my Dead DR's use to work better after heating up at the track... but unfortunately not anymore! /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_wink.gif

Peace!

Just did my first try at the strip. It was the Vette vs Viper shoot out. I do not have drag tires, so I put my Autocross tires on the back. (The BFG's are cheaper than the Supercar tires).

60' - 2.1177
330' - 5.6093
1/8 ET - 8.4051
1/8 MPH - 88.77
1000 ET - 10.7846
1/4 ET - 12.7907
1/4 MPH - 112.95

I think with some practice I could do much better. Spin at start and after 1-2 shift. Rain moved in, so I could not get all the runs needed to find my grove.

Hoping for better times next time.

Well-I have a new 2001 Z06, ran it at the Corvette nationals in St Thomas Ontario (Can) with 1800 miles on it-1st time I've draged in 33 years. Had trouble getting off the line, traction through 1st,2nd and spun in 3rd.Had a set of new BFG 275/40's but had tuff time trying to warm them up-brakes on Z06 too good! Tire pressure at 22lbs.
Best times:
60 ft-1.98 (averaged 2.05's)
330'- 5.48
1/8th-8.34 @ 89.46mph
1/4 mi-12.70 @ 111.07
Really feel with practice and a set of 315's I can be in low 12's. :flaming:
