I was a proud loser in this race

Ran a buddy of mines' C5 Z06 last tonight, he has much more done to his car than I have on my Jeep, his mods are listed in the video description, cam, headers, exhaust, tune, I lost by barely a car-length, which I consider decent in its own aspect, considering, he weighs probably 1000lbs less than me and was pushing maybe 75 more HP with his mods, I ain't afraid to admit defeat, but I can't stand for this to happen for too much longer, haha.

Not bad bro..... Throw a cam and headers and I say you would be at least 1 to 2 cars ahead of him possibly..... What does he run in the 1/4 mile?

Dont know yet sir, our local track is finally opening up in the spring, I run consistent 8.30s in the eighth, which Im guessing would be right at 13 flat-ish in the quarter, haha let Jim chime in here, but as hard as he was pulling me up top, I'd say his car is easily capable of breaking into 11's if he can get his traction issue taken care of.

A 8.300 is a 13.0100 + or - .02. Most of the guys in our group with Johan tunes with cai and exhaust run 8.20 to 8.25 which is a 12.85 1/4 in 1500 to 2200 DA.

Wow, your buddy can drive! All the vette owners I've run just spin out:


As Knuckles said, get a cam and you'll beat him next time.
