I figured my first post should be here (haha).

I'll start with a little background. I've been in the Car/Racing scene since I got my license back in 2006/7. Went to my first Half mile event back in 2013/14 when I had my 2002 C5Z.

Last year (pre covid), I got my 2014 G500. Its still bone stock so I decided to see if I could beat my old pr of 152.6 mph that my H/C/I/E C5Z did (spoiler alert, I didn't).

My best pass I made was my very first one of 148mph in the GT500. The only "mod" that was done was K&N air filter and a tire (Toyo R888R's).

I hope that next event I go to (Fall of 2021), I will have at least some boltons done to see what she does.

The hellcat I raced is a regular at Redlist (if I remember right) and i'm guessing makes around 800+ rwhp.

Side note: I apologize for the sound being off. Not sure why its doing that.

I've done quite a few half mile racing events with my Cobra. Unfortunately, weather was always against us as it was either raining, over 90 degrees with very high humidity, or 40mph headwinds. On the day with 40mph headwinds, I managed to hit 158 right alongside a C5Z. Talked to the guy and we were both consistently hitting 158mph. I was always playing catchup as my R888's were in need of replacement so I was spinning quite a bit until 40-50ish and the C5Z guy said I was coming up on him like a freight train by the finish line. I didn't race the following day when there was no headwind and the C5Z trapped 162-164. So I would assume I'd be around the same with better conditions and new tires. I really think I could have hit 165 with my new R888R's the next year, but with Covid, everything was cancelled and I sold the car.

Took our 99 Lightning to the Battle Creek Speedfest in miserably hot and humid weather in July of 2019 and still managed to go 127 mph.

I was at that event as well, but only on Saturday. I wasn't racing but with a friend with a blue C7Z. Only got two passes in before the rain.

148 to 150 is right about what a bone stock 13/14 will do, with a 2.39 pulley, JLT123 intake, VMP twin 67mm, OFR X-pipe and a Lund tune I was trapped 157 to 159mph with the my 13 GT500. You'll be blown away how big of a difference a few bolt ons do to these cars.
