Recommended Posts

Ok guys need your help me and my buddy got a bet going on his modded 2011 Z06 i think he has a tune cold air kit and headers vs my 2009 super snake 3.6 kenne bell with coolant upgrade in the quartermile. I have about 4500 dollars to spent on some mods what are going to yield me the best quartermile times. My buddy said he is doing a couple other mods to his Z06 don't know what he is doing yet. Help this super snake beat this Z06 thanks.

Traction aids to start with............

I went with CHE relocation brackets. they are easy to install, beefy, and adjustable. http://www.cheperformance.com/CartGenie/prod-264.htm. about 60 bucks.

 

When i go to the drag strip i pull out the old stock GT500 rims (18") and use Nitto 305/45/18's. they are not as wide as my SS wheels (335's) but i think having the extra side wall (deflating the tire to 16PSI) and softer compound helps with bite.

 

hope that helps. if you have a few extra bucks get a linelock installed so you can heat'em up before your run.

 

get some video!

Here is what was achieved with a 725 on 18" M/T E.T. Streets...........

Sitting in the drivers seat the first thoughts are "rev it up and launch it", but as the article reports, a lower RPM netted the better time, and that was a very low RPM launch. You are going to have to find what works best for you once the traction aids are in place.

 

From what I read, that ZR-1 is also in the 10.80's stock, with the right driver.

All very good advice.

 

Improve the rear end suspension: See post 13

Then practice your launches.
