Default Stock C5 with slicks

I have been looking around and cant seem to find the numbers.
I was just wondering what a c5 could do with a pair of slicks.
Both 0-60 and 1/4 Et.
And what are the chances of blowing the rear end.
Thanks

Evan Smith ran like a 12.89@110 in a stock FRC, so with slicks I'd say 12.6 is possible but you would have to launch hard enough that blowing the rear end is a real possibility.

Major improvements on 60 ft time and overall ET. Several 10/ths.

No threat to the rear end on a stock Vette!

Maybe you should consider a Drag Radial design. These are also streetable in dry conditions. Almost as good performance wise but street legal. Good gains at the drag strip,,,but no tickets on the street!
