It's not like the Corvette ZR1 is slow in stock trim, but it's even more vicious when it's been tuned by the wizards at Lingenfelter. Watch as this bad-ass machine tears through the quarter mile in a blistering 9.813 seconds!

Awesome.....but the Evo up there'll beat it by a second...lol
Yeah, but it is way more diffictult to get this monster to hook up, notice how he eased into it off the line to keep wheel spin down while the Evo on the other hand had that throttle/tach pegged B4 he popped the clutch.

Yeah. There's a Corvette club in town. Everything from 57's to ZR1's. They used to meet across the street from my work. A buddy of mine is a member....he has '57 and a '58 convertibles completely restored.

Im not a fan of the ZR1 - I would take a Z06 over it any day. They should have just done a s/c version of one of those instead ... The ZR1 held the Nurburgring title for barely any time before it was beat by the SRT 10 ACR which is NA (if I am not mistaken).

Plus, there are plenty of base model C6s with better aftermarket set ups than Chevy did on the ZR1 ... look at this: its like about 1/2 the boost of the ZR1 and puts down about 1.5 times the power. I am not saying go aftermarket because obviously GM was shooting for turn key performance ... but seriously ... they could have done a lot better than they did and for less money. Their first mistake was not using one of the already great corvette motors. If you think the first two vids are lame because he only guns it a few times and you cant see the speedo ... watch the third one.

Thats a modded base C6 not even a Z06. I have seen C6 Z06s hit 900whp on 7 psi with a fully built motor.
