Please tell me you had the full Z07 aero still on the car when you did that.

I know Atco is a "fast track", but holy hell that's impressive for stock. (at least I'm hoping it's all stock, even tires)

Guys, I'm going to guess that this is NOT a bone stock car (I could be wrong).
It's obviously an Atco track rental (I've been to 20+ of them) with good prep but the air/DA does not appear to be there to support a 10.3x pass in bone stock trim. It is windy up this way though so maybe a strong blast of tailwind?
Could be a mere CAI (or headers), tuning and drag radial car though.
But if modified, then the trap speed would likely be higher than 131mph as well so maybe it is stock?

This will be INTERSTING to see b/c the mph is something we have seen bone stock now with the recent 10.55 MIR run trapping at 132 mph.

If this is on a bone stock car (except for drag drag radials) this will be on e HECK of an accomplishment as you know, and if he pulled of a hero 60 foot time certainly a possibility with great air, conditions, etc.

I hope its on a stock car but I wouldn't be surprised if he has some bolt on mods, but we will know very soon I'm sure!

DA is definitely not there. And as I recall, Atco track faces east to west. The winds are coming out of the north/northwest, so if anything there'd be a bit of a crosswind.

I'm betting ARH headers + CAI + tune...but I guess we will find out soon enough.

But that's just it, look at the air parameters at (or near) Atco today. If they'd read 42 degrees (could have been that if he ran in the morning), 30.30+ barometer and a 12 degree dew point then I'd say "wow, he had great air". But he didn't.
Track prep was likely solid of course and it is a little windy so a tailwind is possible but unless the driver weighed only 90 pounds and the car had 5000+ miles on it, well, I just find it difficult to believe that a pure bone stock C7 Z06 Z07 could do this in this air.
I'd posted less than a week ago on these pages that I believe that a 10.39 was "potentially possible" and I even said it might happen at Atco. But I never assumed nor implied that it could happen at 50 degrees and a 29.85 barometer.

We are on the exact same page here.
But I will be VERY pleased if a bone stock C7 Z06 could do this, ESPECIALLY in those air conditions.
