Absolutely outstanding show for the ZR1. Personally I really don't care if some snob mobile that costs $300,000+ does it a bit faster.

Thank you for adding us to and maintaining the ZR-1 Fast List.

Information on the Stock with DRs 9.939/140.30 pass.
This was a March 23rd track rental at MIR. Pass was made at 10:10am with a density altitude of -1300. Track prep was excellent. CCW 18" wheels with Hoosier Drag Radials, CCW skinnies up front. We were relieved and happy to see the 9 second ticket! It had been almost a year(April 2018) since the 10.12 at Richmond in +450 DA that day with just over 500 miles on the car! Thanks Chevrolet, amazing car! Similar 60 foot to the ZO6 but after that, HOLD ON!

If he was going by Chevrolets recommendations he should have been running 100 Octane fuel. They recommend if you are tracking

Don't worry about the Kia guys as the new Stinger is beating the new 5.0 Mustang in a drag race where both cars are stock

The manual mustang didnít have the driver mod as he admittedly short shifted 500rpm in the video, they should have tested an auto mustang instead as that would have been a fair comparison.

Sorry for the high jack OP
