    Fastest in the County? That's not saying much.

    Maybe you mean it's the quickest in the country...at least for this week.

    It is just me or did the driver sit for a long time after the light?

    Common sense is like deodorant. The folks who need it most never seem to use it and there's no polite way to tell them.

    No shit...the guy was sleeping or something. Good thing he/she wasn't racing anyone.

    Plus, that pass would have been tenth quicker had the shifting been quicker.

    The sound, alone, was worth watching the clip.

    Yes, the exhaust tone is fabulous... better music than most pop bands!

    he didn't need to cut a good light.......he was looking to make a optimal pass and trying to get the best launch
    possible. Had he been racing against an actual opponent he would have a cut a better light.

    As you already know, he could have sat there for 2 minutes and it would not affect
    his time as he was running solo..

    Yeah, maybe I was looking at it the wrong way but my spin on going to the track is, with respect to the starting line, every pass counts because reaction time is the mother's milk of drag racing.

    But, I agree he wanted a good pass. After all, the point was posting to the web, not the reaction time.

    "Best launch"...indeed. My guess is that, as good as the C7 is, it will have the same problem other Corvettes have and that's getting the car to hook.

    I'd have loved to see his 60 foot.

    Of course, at this point in time, the car's not quickest C7, but at 11.16 using headers, an intake kit, a 100-shot of nitrous and a tune maybe with some sticky tires it'd have been in the 10s.

    my 60 foots are in the 1.8s with 11.9 @ 118 mph totally stock.
