First I have to thank the biggest contributor to todays passes/ETs is Kyle Lemish. Without his incite todays would have definitely not been possible. I had a lot of support at the track today which made it all the more fun. The stock 2009 ZR1 with Drag radials only performed better than I thought it would be able to in the weather at hand. In the end though as I told Kyle my goal was a 10.49 but I didnt want to tell anyone the lofty goal I had for myself. Fear of failing miserably held in there pretty well. I watched video after video of Kyles runs, Rangers and others listening to how the car would sound on the launch, what the shifts should be like everything I could think of to study. The DA started off my first pass around -900DA and I believe the DA started to away to around -300DA. Cant get a complaint in the weather department. I do feel it was a clean DA day which no 2 DA's are created equal IMO. With that said heres a break down of the runs.

Video per Double a vette another great forum member who lent another friend of mine his targa top due to a tragedy enroute for Devilish's top. Arnold brought along the best videographer I've EVER EVER seen!!! Cant this little guy enough! He gets the angles, the shots that count. He was videoing all day and rushed the vids up!

Car sounds/looks sick and VERY impressive times. Very low 10's, maybe high 9's possible once you get a few bolt-on's? :D

Wow, that's amazing. I always wondered why the ZR-1s didn't do much better than the Zo6s. I guess it was the drivers. Congrats!

That's one quick ZR1! Seems like the track is hookin when you're chirping the tires in 2nd gear.
Bucket list car for sure!

that was some impressive work. i think you hold the record for the time being. the car was always worth it, but after seeing runs like that, you know it is. and it can dish it out all day, and still has a warranty. thank god someone in GM still has there shit together. :usa:
