Default 1st 9 sec. pass by a stock ZR1 on drag radials 9.939 E.T./ 140.30MPH



Date = 3/23/2019
Time = 10:10am
Density Altitude = -1300

NOTE= We had quite a learning curve from the easy 10.12 pass last April! I just turned 71 years old. Thanks again to the Corvette Forum, whatever we have been fortunate enough to accomplish, we learned from the best; Snorman, Kyle Lemish, Big Nasty, Fart Pipe, Brent, and Vnamvet.

After Stock Pass, we made changes and a Chevrolet bolt on for a project we are working on with Chevrolet Performance. A gentleman videoed and posted that run as stock. We would never represent that pass as stock. Results will be released in June!

Thank you, Will Farmer

PLEASE go to Florida and race Drag times!!! I am so tired of seeing every ZR1 fall on its face racing Brooks, I love his cars and his channel but apparently every ZR1 that shows up there has newbie drivers that cannot race the ZR1.... No disrespect to any of the drivers, but the ZR1 can do much better than the drivers have shown up to now, even if it doesn't win it should show much better .... The ZR1 needs seat time with a real drag racer, and you certainly meet that criteria!

Thanks for posting, keep it up!

Will, do you think this mod will allow warranty to continue?

Thanks,

Wow, very well done!
Mph is very nice.
Is it my imagination or does the track sound pretty sticky as you are staging?

Agreed.
Perhaps a GoFundMe page to help offset his expenses?

I've got a little over 40 years of drag racing experience. I'll volunteer to drive if y'all work out the details. I'm actually going to be in Daytona this month 11th-april14th.

This Zr1 is not stock. But I’m sure Brooks can find a car to run with it.

Hopefully someone can reach out to drag times. If anyone knows him shoot him a note. I would really like to see a good driver line up with him. GO Thomasmoto !!
