My mistake. I saw OPs # and thought he ran the demon on every run. Couldt figure out the numbers of the other car being all over the place. lol

Fantastic 60 ft times and great 1/8 mile et. I have run my base manual stingray best 11.78 @ 121.23 mph which is fantastic for a manual car, my 60ft was 1.97, 7.7 in the 1/8 mile @96.14 mph

The stainlesss steel exhaust tips on the 15 seemed to get black soon, on this 2019 the seem to stay clean or much cleaner. The19 also seems to run at a higher temp around 200 to 210 on average, 15 ran on average 185 to 200. The 19 looks to be more restricted for air to enter from under the passanger side bumper cover / fender. It has the other improvements from 16 and up. The stated gas mileage on the window sticker has been reduced.

My 16 Stingray goes back and my 19 GS is coming in about a week. I'm hoping for a bit better traction with the 335s in the rear.

With great 1.6 60 ft times, I would think the car would be on Drag radials.

You do realize that not every pass is a good one, right?

I didn't realize the hellcat was only on one of those slips. Thought each one was the vette vs the hellcat.

Would think 335's would help a bit for traction at the strip and tracking but the additional weight of the car and rotational weight of the Tires and wheels won't for the drags. On the other hand for tracking the car, handling should be noticeable.

M/T's 285/35R19's DR's on Base 2017 19X10". I switch tire/wheels before I go to the strip. Don't want to burn-up the stock also more consistent runs., would have to heat the heck out of the stock to attempt to hook for most runs.
