I was doing a little surfing today and ran across a video on a Miata Forum.

Darth, ole Buddy, you never told us about this one!! /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_confused.gif /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_confused.gif OUCH!!

http://www.z06vette.com/media/vetterm.mpg (2.1 megs)

Miata: 11.67 @ 117.03

Black Corvette Z06 Hennesey = 11.90 @ 119.81

In all fairness to Darth, it was the fastest recorded run of a Miata motored Miata, ie no V8 or rotary conversion.

Poor Darth, I hope he doesn't take it personal. I'd hate to meet that Black Z of his at a stoplight!! /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_eek.gif

I just hope I can run with those Miatas when I get my package installed too. /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif

I am sure the Miata was on drag radials. When Darth tried that he pulled an 11.5 ... withouth 3d gear (bye bye clutch)

Darth, get that clutch figured out cuz'n. I am gonna need that 100 shot and the Z500 to play with the big boys out here. /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif

That is one quick Mazda.../phpBB/images/smiles/icon_eek.gif but the Black Vette looks a whole lot better. I had a Sunbeam Tiger...all motor...very fast...But the Z is still number one in my book, and it is a better driver.

That video has been out for a few months, what it doesn't tell you is that he was on full race slicks pulling a 1.6 60' to my 2.12 60' on street tires.No traction. If you listen to the video you can hear my motor revving high as the tires were spinning 'til 3rd. My trap speed on that run was actually 122.81 MPH, I pulled a 123.76 MPH that same night, on a different pass.
I wonder what the results would be now that I have my own slicks turning 1.61 60'. /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_wink.gif
Can you say 11.20 @ 124MPH.
It's coming, trust me.
hehehehehehe

Actually......

Hi No Mercy, I still think your z is one of the best looking :)

Darth Vetter, sharp car too, hope the slicks drop ya to low 11's as I am sure they will.

AS far as ricks car, I think there's a bit of confusion, he has stock internals. He does indeed have a large turbo and intercooler though. I am also almost 100% certain he runs radials, not slicks.

He has hella quick 60ft times.

Cheers!
Jennifer
94 miata, stock motor big turbo.

Jennifer, you have to understand that when we do burnouts, its gotta be for a REAL good reason to leave $200 worth of F1 Supercar rubber on the road :)

We can't just go grab a set of 15" BFG's for these cars ya know!

:lol:
