Ranger 2002 Z06 11.55 117.69 Cold-Air Intake & Drag Radials
This is the only perfect pass I've ever driven at the drag strip. The
launch produced a 1.64 60' time. The shifts were very good and at the
perfect rpm. The Density Altitude was 1200 feet. The car Dynoed 363 rwhp and 349 rwtq.
This remains the fastest pass for a C5 Z06 with only deviation from
bone-stock being a cold-air intake and DOT drag radial tires.

Two years later I finally eclipsed this time by .03 in exceptional weather
