Making the run during the hurricane with a 100mph tailwind doesn't count J/K, very cool and I'm impressed with these 6th gens.

Hurricane running is the only way to do it. LOL.

No Sir, I haven't. I did some Z06's but they were M7's and A8's. Haven't had my hands on the A10 ZL1 yet. I am sure it is another steep learning curve.

Doesn't seem like many people are tuning the new ZL1's outside of vengeance and a few others. I know when I was out at FL2K18 a couple of the ZL1 guys said they would have went to you but heard you didn't do A10 stuff are they that big of a pain to tune?

I don't experiment on other peoples cars unless someone comes to me and we work through something together. I just honestly don't have the time right now for tune development over what I already do. I am sure I could tap some solid resources for some good base line stuff to start with. But I have been pushing away from the unknown right now. I will never over sell myself.

I don't blame you don't want to stretch yourself thin.

sounds good!

im going with a 26 tall 275 Hoosier when I get my 15 rears on. Plenty of sidewall. On the 17 I would slightly worry the 275 wonít hook I went with the 315/35/17 Hoosier. Will be a great choice if it hooks consistently and slightly faster than a 315

With the 315s how are you launching the car ? And these forge stars are lighter than the race stars so that will offset the wieght of the 315s some

1200 rpm brake torque. Floor it first and then let off the brake right after.

Do burnout in manual mode in 2nd gear. Itís just right. Still breaks them loose easily and enough speed to stay off the limiter
