    Friend of mine texted me last night about the ZR1 he saw at the track. Here is the stuff he posted to me. Not bad on straight up street tires. A drag radial and more aggressive launch should get that car rolling 10's with no issues.

    He is probably track staff. I have raced at that track in Memphis many times. All walks of life are out there.

    But the big thing is the MPH in the 1/8 AND 1/4 mile!!!

    101 and STILL picked up 30 more mph on the back end of the track. THAT is fucking moving.

    Even better. These cars now have a 9" pinion gear and a few other items to beef up. These cars can really take a hard launch, if that was what you wanted to do in the car. :coold:

    No nitrous needed. Just a tire and a small pulley for the blower. (Not to mention some better headers, once the current manifolds are R&D'd out.

    No joke. I want to put EFI Live on one to check it out. I know these things HAVE to be ultra conservative from the factory.
