10.85 pass, then current record for a stock Corvette on drag
Bone Stock on Drag Radials 10.74
report on this pass
on December 16, 2009 Back
in November 2006 after first running 10.85 on drag radials in a
bone-stock C6Z06, I opined that 10.7X was possible under the right
conditions. Today, I had my first opportunity to run in really good
air on my home track, Maryland International Raceway in Budds
Creek. DA at the time was negative-1300 feet.
My series was
10.85 129.21 1.67
10.87 130.09 1.67
10.81 130.39 1.67
I’ve hosted three rentals this fall and gotten my driving in pretty
good shape. That track time, combined with frequent practice
sessions of shifting drills and garage launch routines, have helped
me internalize techniques that work, at least for me. My 60’ on DRs
are now routinely in the 1.6X and stray occasionally to the low end
of that range. Today was my first in the 1.5s, perhaps a fitting
cap to the racing season.
After the 10.74 on Drs, I made some passes on the stock tires, but
the racing surface was getting too cold to support a good launch
and 1-2 shift on stock GY F1SC-EMTs
My car is a bone stock 2006 Z06, built in Feb 2006, with 21K miles
and more than 200 drag strip passes. Nothing whatsoever has been
changed on the car from factory spec. Couple forum members
witnessed my passes today and inspected my car. Perhaps they will
DRs on the car were BFG 315.35.17 on 17"x12" CCWs
There were six other racers with me at MIR today and all set PRs.
Good driving in great conditions makes for happy memories. I
suspect several of them will be starting threads on their
respective boards. Here
is the time slip for this record pass.
