    Driver makes a difference: Bone Stock Z06 11.403 @ 124.87mph

    This is a quote form one of the best (if not the best) amature drivers on the Corvetteforum.com:
    Quote:
    Last weekend I ran my first ten passes in this 2006 Z06. They were all on drag radials. Half the passes were under 11.40. Best was 11.20.

    Today at Maryland International Raceway in Budds Creek, Maryland, I made passes #11 and #12; these on stock tires.

    So to be clear, my car is 100% bone stock. Nothing changed from factory delivery, except four coats of polish. I carried about 30 pounds of extraneous junk in the cargo area and nearly half a tank of gas.

    Density altitude was 1150' measured on my TAG weather station. Air temp was in the mid-70s. Track prep was good but not spectacular.

    First pass was 11.48 at 123.97 on a 1.84 60'. Launch rpm was 2900.

    Second pass, 90 minutes later was 11.403 at 124.87 on a 1.786 60'.

    Splits on the 2d pass were:

    60'........1.786 (launch rpm of 3200 with a fast release)
    330'......4.935
    660'......7.452 @ 98.16
    1000'.....9.593
    1320'...11.403 @ 124.87

    I reached the line at a water temp of about 190 on both passes. Front psi was set to 42 and rear psi was set to 28. I warmed the tires before each pass. Was shifting as close to the limiter as I could get, but didn't make them perfectly. I did some easing on the throttle on the shift, eg NO powershifting.

    About a year ago I predicted the car (bone-stock on stock tires) would run 11.25-11.35 with dialed-in driving and ideal conditions. I think today's passes validate that prediction. 11.40 with driving that is not yet dialed-in to the car and at an 1150' DA, well short of ideal.

    I think 95% of the guys won't get near his time. He is almost legendary on that board. His best time on stock C5 Z06 was in 11.8xx. So this guy could really drive. Most of the drivers are getting 11.7~12.2 for the new Z06.
    F355 and turbolite, get your rides on a drag strip (I hope they have them in Sturgart ) and tell us what you get. Be interesting to compare real life tests from both sides of the pond.

    Impressive times. However, I would not consider a car with drag radials to be 100% stock.

    Maybe you have reading compreshension problem, or maybe you need to try to read it one more time. He made it abundantly clear that he was running on stock tires for these times. He ran 11.20 with Drag Radials one weekend prior. These two runs were done yesterday with stock run flats.

    Try this thread: http://forums.corvetteforum.com/showthread.php?t=1332198&forum_id=100

    For the 11.20 run try this: http://forums.corvetteforum.com/showthread.php?t=1326732

    BTW, this guy is well known in the racing community. He is 100% legit.

    Maybe he did read your post incorrectly but it doesn't warrant such a tone...

    We don't condone that type of behavior and exhibitionism on this forum.

    Thanks Hurst!

    Jackwr: Agreed, post was misread, but a little softer tone might keep the dialoge on the cars and not start another round of name calling.

    Exactly. Either do it in German, or remain polite.
