With my stock 08 A6 & 2.56 gears ... In the heat I run 12.4-12.5's.. In decent weather 12.2-12.3's.... In good weather 12.1's... Haven't made any passes in really great weather conditions...MPH ranges from 114 in the heat to almost 118 in better weather...

Less power loss to the ground with manual. Side by side rolling the manual
is faster. Auto's on the other hand come out of the hole better with their ability
to lay the power off the line. Some people can't drive a stick. So results vary!

2008 Z51 MN6 NPP -My bone stock best was a 13.0 @ ~115mph IIRC

Getting a good launch with runflats is difficult

I just bought a stock LS3 with 28,000 miles. I ran an 11.89 (118 mph) this morning. I adhered to the great advice of Ranger (Rangeracceleration.com) and was quite pleased as this was my second 1/4 mile run ever. I did have Mickey Thompson drag radials my buddy lent me.

the rear tires mean everything... the old expression is: "if you can't hook.....you can't book"............

I'm certain that I couldn't run that time with my stock run-flats. I had a super lucky day: good tires, good weather, good track temp, good advice. The times listed above are with stock tires right?

Ya, in those class rules you need stock runflats... I hit a 12.24@117 after this thread was originally posted..

Good post BTW !

Mine is a stock 2008 LS3 with NPP.

best time is 12.8 at 115 MPH.

My problem is ( probably like everybody else) the first 60'......i'm soooo slow of getting out the box....

I'm shopping for some mags and tires i could swap befor going to the track....

Bone stock '08, NPP, Z51 (2.73 rear), A6, in drive (no paddle shifting), 80*F August day, 93 octane gas, only run the car has ever seen:

12.6 @ 114 mph

Edit: It's interesting to read about people having issue with hooking up. I never even got a tire chirp from a dead stop to full throttle. Ran 1/4 mile with all nannnys "on".

I ran our 09 stock and with 325s out back, stock tires my best times were 12.8 at 113 and with the 325s 12.5 at 115. What I find hard to do is to get a good launch with the stock converter, seems above 2k the Vette wants to move with the foot brake on. I can not get the 60 times under 2 seconds, I was able to do better in my stock MN6 99 C5 in the 60 times 1.8, though my times were never 12.5, best stock was 12.7 at 114.

Limiting the Corvette to 1/4 mile is like shooting a .308 sniper rifle at the local pistol range, or running an offshore sport racing boat on your local lake.
Plus, you will invariably find yourself in the company of camaros and the toyota-supra-dragon-nos-NAWS crowd.

They'd be mid/hi-150s for bone stock cars. Seen a lot of them run.

The previous chart has 24 listings, of which 6 are M6 and 18 are A6.
A6 is quicker mostly in drag racing.
