What kind of times would a stock Z06 have in the 1/4 mile with a modified intake and drag slicks on the car?

With me behind the wheel, mid twelves. With Powershifter or one of the other Hot Shoes on this forum it will run at least 1/2 of second faster. :D

I've run 12.36 with only a vortex and a 2.12 60foot time, so you should be able to shave 2 tenths with drag radials, hence the 12.1 estimate.

I think everyone missed the point of the drag slicks, It will go 11s with just slicks, with alot of practice it will go mid 11s, so I think the number you're looking for is 11.60s @ 117mph

With practice and a DA of less than a 1000 I think you could hit 11.6s.

I'd say upper 11's to mid 13's, but as Rob said, depends on weather & a lot on the driver...

Yeah, that's more realistic. Only a handful of people would approach mid 11's with just an intake and drag radials. I bet on a perfect, day/track, a mid 1.5x is possible with MT drag radials or even bfg dr and couple that with some of the runs you guys have made and your haulin'.

Hey Rob! I know because I've basically been on both ends of that range!!! I'm still seeking the 1.5x 60' though...

I went to the Gators last weekend. Man those TFs can fly. [email protected] makes *anything* the Z can do, stock or modified, seem horribly, horribly puny by comparison.

Heck, even the guys that lost traction on launch and had to come out of it, still usually managed 9 second runs.

Nearly makes me weep.
