The ZR1 needs seat time with a real drag racer, and you certainly meet that criteria!

Thanks for posting, keep it up!
I am unfamiliar with drag times/brooks. What type of car is he racing and is it stock.

Is it my imagination or does the track sound pretty sticky as you are staging?
The Crew at MIR do a great job maintaining the facility and with track prep.

Congrats! Just to clarify itís got skinnies up front? Also curious if the drag radials were spinning on the rim as it looked like you marked the tire?

You're correct! we marked the tire at the valve stem to see if they were spinning. We did glue them to the rim which so far has worked well. We are running skinnies up front.

Yes, it is our understanding that the Chevrolet Performance Modification will be warranty legal.

We are working on a possible Demon Rematch and would rather not give out too many details before that race.

WOW, sounds promising.
How much quicker over a standard ZR1 can we expect?

Question is Hoos ier daddy?

335/30 is my guess, he says weíll have to wait till after the Demon race to find out though.

Almost looks like rear wheel is smaller than front in pic posted, so maybe itís a 315/35.
