Ran CHP nats in Atlanta....

Hey everyone. Just chiming in after a fun weekend in Atlanta for the LSX Shootout. I ran my 13 ZL1 in the Tremec True Street competition and met a few other 5th gen owners. The ZL1 ran a best 12.46 at 114 Saturday afternoon. Not to bad on stock tires. I'll post the time slip later. Beyond my not so great 60' times (2.105), does anyone know why I couldn't pull faster et/mph at the top end? Thanks and hope to meet more 5th gen brothers and sisters in the future. Oh and ill post the YouTube link shortly with the gopro mounted on the back window.

Manual is the only way to drive these. Both the 2ss and zl1 are manuals!

DJ,
Had to emerge and post, since I rarely meet Forum members in person.
It was great to meet you and your wife in the True Street staging lanes in Atlanta Dragway at CHP Nationals.
You both seem like very nice folks and enjoyed the chats.

I know another ZL1 had difficulties on the 60ft from poor stocker grip and inexperience, but still pulled out a 118mph with a similar 12.4+ET. Not sure-but something seams wrong with your run. The DA was around 3k which didn't help. The closed hood restriction hurts, but at least the ZL has some dissipation. Not sure if you looked at your ECTs at the line or had wheel spin further down the track. Overheated SC or bad gas? Somethings not adding up, but it may take a similar car owner/racer to assist better. Even with your good level of experience, sometimes its difficult to decern.

I ended up 0.022 off for my 3 pass average-not too bad since I hadnt 'Tried' to slow down a full 0.5s on purpose before to meet a Class time.
Ended up in the Semi-finals for 5th gen Cam. Couldn't pull it off, despite a better Tree RT, due to the high DA/ no reserve HP.
Was a good time, got 16 passes in, and met several new Camaro enthusiasts.


Take care and enjoy your two rides.
Tim

Hey Tim,

Same to you, it was nice to finally meet some other 5th gen owners. I agree with you, but I am concerned because I ran the car two days earlier with similar results with a best pass of 12.46....... Guess its time to dive in and find some of those hidden ponies.

Congrats on the semis and hope to run into you again.

DJ

Pic of your ride in front of mine in the lane for True Street Race. Was great to see some ZL1s on the strip.

Here's the slips for the day.... Don't mind the second slip (17 second pass.... I learned the hard way how not to stage on a pro tree..... but if you take the 4.5 seconds off the time that I was sleeping with the red light before I realized it was red.... it was a 12.5-12.6 pass)
