Nice... I wonder if that's another SW car. Sure looks like it could be.

LOL at the drum & bass flip of the Star Wars theme....

Not the quickest one but not bad for still utillizing the twin screw. And given the MPH and 60ft its got more left in it with a driver.

And correct me if I'm wrong, but aren't those drag radials? I've been out of the drag racing scene for some time and I know DRs can really hook well, but I suspect if it were on true drag slicks it could launch quite a bit harder.

Regardless, as has been said, it's pretty darn impressive considering how much is still original in the powertrain.

Yeah they are DR's. I cant tell if theyre Nittos or MT's though....

And FWIW people are going waaay faster than high 9's on drag radials. They hook just as good as most slicks and are actually more stable on the big end because they are still belted. The driver in the ZR1 was nancying it off the line.

I remember folks were pushing 8's on DR's last time I was paying much attention (admittedly several years ago) so I figured they must be going faster by now! Maybe the driver didn't want to shatter the rear end? Or maybe trying to avoid axle hop?

yeah DRs have come a LONG way. and most average guys are running them over slicks.

that car is just insane. ive rode in a 800 hp vette before. first time i was scared in a car lol. we were on the highway doing 100mph, and he punched it, it smoked the tires until he lifted. unreal

Horsepower will do crazy things when traction is at a loss.

Love this thing...but I'm a little bias towards blown Corvettes.
