Sizzlin’ Hot Corvette ZR1 Runs 9s
Not all Corvettes are created equal. The ZR1 in particular stands out as being one of the most powerful Corvettes around. But for those of us with a bit of an addiction, we need more. A fine example of more is this Lethal Performance ZR1.
As you can see in the High Tech Corvette video below, a day at the strip shows that too much is never enough. Except, perhaps, when trying to get a clean launch. Launching a C6 ZR1 isn’t the easiest thing in the world, especially when it’s built by Lethal Performance and packs 1000+ hp. And the relatively low profile drag radials aren’t really helping the cause much either.
After a few squiggly attempts in the 10s, and figuring out exactly which launch technique works best (while avoiding the evils of wheel-spin) a few clean launches were able to put the Chevy deep into 9-second territory, with the fastest being a 9.3 @ 157mph. An 8-second run is not at all out of the question, all that’s left to answer is how to get a more solid launch.
