View Full Version : Set another C6 1/4 record

Set a new C6 M6 record. My car has 100% stock driveline, No Z06/ZR1 rearend, suspension, or anything. Everything in my driveline is completely stock besides my clutch. No transmission mods, braces, etc. I have no weight removed, no skinnies, no special wheels, tires, skinnies, or etc. This is the exact way I drive the car everyday. I just remove 6psi in the drag radials in the back during the 90 mile round trip to the track(no, my front street tires were not aired up). I will never run skinnies, or slicks(blias ply) or even Hoosier DR(becasuse they are not streetable) tires on this car. Drop the top, hit the track on 93 gas plus meth injection, and head home with the top off. I see the former C6 record with a gutted car, built rear end, racing seats, etc. Never will be my car. I run my car as a street car. I believe that is the way cars going for ET records should go.

After many 9.8 runs, I set the new C6 M6(non Z06/ZR1) record. 9.68@148mph. I've got a new blower to go faster, thanks to Paxton and should get into the 9.30 area.

I'm happy with the time being a street car. People, as on CorvetteForum will say how slow the ET is compared to the MPH, but I accept that. They have never done it in a stock C6.

This record will be broke soon, but I hope it is by a 100% street trim car. No clutch dumps, line locks, slicks, skinnies, etc. I like to see people running fast the exact way they drive their car everyday. I've been a part of the "Fast" or "ET" list for 13 years on different sites and different usernames with Ford cars. I always find that people want to equate cars with slicks/skinnies/racing seats/trailer cars to full street cars funny for an ET list. I believe that is what money racing is for. Eitherway, I look forward to the competition.

Very nice driving! I am the same way you are i dont think i will ever run any typed of slick/ skinny and i would never run it that way on the street. Also what tire are you running?

Nice going.
You seem a little hostile. To each his/her own. How anyone wishes to race their car is fine by me. I say line up with anyone and see how you fair regardless of mods. It's funny you say your dr's are ok but hoosiers aren't. Goodluck, stay humble, and don't jinx yourself. Keep those et's coming.

To the OP: How is that car "stock"?

Oh, wait a minute, I see you're a Ford guy. Makes sense now.


Quick car nonetheless.

Wow, there are quite a few people here that have reading issues.

He said stock driveline. He meant stock trans/suspension. Car has a Paxton blower bolted to it. Its plastered all over his first post and his signature.

Excellent times, btw.

Now that you set a record, it's time to swap out the stock suspension/rear end :cheers:

No, it's not exactly "plastered" all over. He just kept going on and on about how stock everything is. In his title and post, it says nothing about the car being a blown 402 (it says that in his sig only, and it doesn't even say what the car is, just a "2008 M6"...). He said that he has a blower that he plans to use to go faster, but not that there was one on the car during the runs...Quite misleading/confusing IMO (still very impressive record however).

Nice ET!! How much boost/spray?

Thanks, JR.

Boost only-9.81 was 12psi. Best MPH was a 149 and best 60ft was a 1.46 on 295-17 drag radials.

Spray-9.68. Only have 2 runs, manually turning it on at the top of second gear. Best MPH was a 148 and best 60ft was a 1.50 on 295-17 drag radials.

I'm not sure the spray helps much since I turn it on at the end of 2nd. It only added 50hp on the dyno, and we haven't tuned for it. We just made 1 pass and pulled 4* of timing. I think there is room for improvement.

i thought this was a stock ls2 with a blower for a second...woulda still been believable until i saw 12lbs of boost. still a nice run, and fast car.

winters97gt
03-21-2012, 11:40 PM
Thanks, it actually made 11.42 pounds of boost last week in 80*air. Pump gas tune with a little meth. It made 784/740(down a little bit). This is the same tune that I have run a bunch of 9.81-9.85 passes on.

It's a 402, 9.8:1 compression, LS3 heads, and a 232/244 custom cam that I speced on a 118 LSA with a NOVI 1500 maxed out at 11-12psi. The new blower will be on soon, and I will have new track numbers.

Hey MightyMouse! Can't wait to see your next build taking place. I've kept track of your cars over the years and saw your next build thread on Corvetteforum C6FI section. Sounds killer.

The car has stock 18 inch tires in the front with BFG KDW's. The rear tires are 295/45-17 MT drag radials on Fbody wheels(which I drive the car daily on). The clutch is a Mcleod RXT, and the transmission, differential, axles, etc are stock and not braced. I'm not sure that at 800rwhp in a 6 speed, there is much left over a 1.46 60ft without having a Z06/ZR1 or RPM rear end. Here I am running the Houston Half Mile a few weeks ago. I was gear limited in 4th and didn't want to shift to 5th since I saw the traps coming up on me. I probably could have run 173-174mph if I just raised my rev limiter 200rpm, as you can hear the car bouncing off the limiter going through the traps. 1/2 mile racing is interesting compared to 1/4 or standing mile racing. Look forward to your build and I'll keep track of it.

You have a badazz vette for sure and runs great and nice times, however you do not have a stock driveline. You changed out your clutch, therefore your driveline has been modified.

This is why the last guy made the comment. It's like saying 60% of the time it works everytime. lol

I'm just giving ya crap. Cool car.

That's impressive man.. I'm curious how long that diff/tranny is going to hold.. it's almost impossible to believe your stock drive train is holding up to this abuse while guys with stock car's are breaking diff's, transmission's..

Is the car sold? I noticed in your sig that was the case. If not, I have a completely stock driveline c6 that would like a word with you around tk2k13 :)

Very fast and also very misleading. You might mention the stroker motor and blower in the first sentence. :jest: Once you have a supercharger and a stroker motor, pointing out all the things that are stock seems a bit odd. The car is damn fast. No need to qualify it with all that.

Ever ran in the texas mile? Gotta love the mcleod rxt, it's definitely a nice clutch. I can't believe how light the pedal feels with it.
