Default Whats next for the C6Z06 at the dragstrip? 10s stock, bolt on 9's,8's w/man trans,6's

I havent been through to much in this section lately. It seems a little lack luster lately. I'm curious with all the amazing accomplishments the C6Z06's have given us in the hands of the members of this site. What is next? What goals.... what achievements do people want to see? Whats left for the drag strip? Is there a goal to lofty? Not lofty enough.... is it C7 time?

Just to recap of what the C6Z06 has been pushed to accomplish thus far at the drag strip.

10.9's on stock run flats
10.7's stock on drag radials
9.9's with bolt ons
9.8's heads/cam on drag radials 6spd
8.8's heads/cam power adder 6spd
7's heads/cam/auto/power adder?
Even 6's all out bad azz car achievements!!!!

I havent heard much of the 60-130 achievements of the C6Z06's but that is getting pretty popular on many car sites. Some very impressive results and shows off a lot of the car... more than the driver sometimes.
Theres half mile events and big gun 1 mile events. Just curious what is keeping everyone going and excited about their C6Z06s at the strips? I honestly feel the C6Z06 is an amazing performance car. I dont want everyone to lose their excitement and passion of the car as they fall to the way side so quickly then

Bruce, the only thing going on in here is a bunch of guys bitching about valves. That's it.

soooooo....... lets getter back to the basics then.... Whats some goals in performance that people want to see the C6Z06 achieve???


OR.... is it over? Go buy a C7, GTR, Viper, Prius OR A GT500 OMFG! and move on? Is it that bad in here? No coming back? The C6Z06 has accomplished it all and nothing surprises us anymore?

This topic has nothing to do with the Valve drop scare. Just want to see some people show their passion for the performance of one of the best performance cars made.... Or is it over?

Hey Fartpipe. I bought the Machine Silver Z you sold this past winter. The car has ported heads,Torquer110,headers,CAI & made 550rwhp & 525rwtq at ECS. I recently bought a NW102 & am porting a FAST 102 that will go on soon. I am hunting for a lighter wheel combo with DR's for the drag strip because the Forged 360's on the car weigh a ton. I will be real happy with a mid 10 second pass in the 130's.

I think the H/C record has room to drop with an all out setup.

+1 on the Z06 being one of the greatest cars ever made. To have a drag racing resume like this and still be able to outperform alot supercars on a road course with just a tire swap????

Bruce.....are you talking yourself back into a Z?

I want to see Gary add a cam and go for 9.5-6s cam only.

If I could find a used Vbox for a reasonable price I'd get one to time 60-130times, but that seems impossible

Funny stuff above !!!!

For sure, my personal goal, stay the same. 9.7X cam only, stock untouched heads.

Oh and the C7 are not availaible to canada before 2020. We are always later here ....

You sir have a S/C C6... when are you getting the C6Z?... well let me think about letting you in temporarily due to you have a C6Z rear.
