Run 9's around 140mph last I heard....

As far as the transverse leaf, considering the C6 Z06 can pull a 1.0+ g it's can be all that bad.

nice trap speed.


And since when are g's in a corner applicible to drag racing :dunno: and a composite single leaf spring is aslightly better tech then a pile of metal like on the old vette's. Not busting your cars stones on purpose, but lets face the facts here.

and dont get me wrong too - there are advantages to a leaf spring setup - but in making a drag car like this guy, it is not the best route. You have to admit that.

No doubt, if it were MY car, I'd run a solid axel GM 12 bolt or 9in Ford. I'm running a glass transverse leaf w/ adjustable shock and it handles and launched fine. But then again I don't have a track only car.

Is there any way possible to say, "that number sounds weak as hell", without sounding like an ignorant asshole? :D How much boost? And is his et and trap speed limited at this point because of that suspension setup?

Honestly I wouldn't expect anything less than someone calling it "WEAK as hell" on this board since it is a domestic. But it's not bad considering the track surface (looks like raw concrete) with no track prep. The car is in Poland afterall.


Hard to hook up when the surface looks like this...

Newbs, go jump in a 1000hp car and try to make a clean pass on an old country road. Then come back and tell us how "weak" a 9 second pass on that surface is.
