    Hopefully we can get a ZL1 owner to come out to Sebring in October and run. I posted it over on C5 asking for someone to come out and run.

    We'll see.

    I've issued the invitation on C5 to whomever. If Erik wants to do this I'm all ears.

    A stock 2012 is significantly down on overall power and suspension versus the 2013. If I had a 2012 to drive I could put it out there and lay down some numbers but I would suspect 2:38+ Lap times.

    IMHO....to be fair, hopefully a ZL1 owner with seat time at Sebring that are close to your skill set(s).

    Very cool :rockon:

    I'm glad to hear, read, and see, owner's (as yourself) who wish to run the car's at road racing events. I will be following your threads with great interest, as I decide which options to select when my time to order/purchase the car comes closer.

    Hehe I think after being ran over by that Boss, (BTW I know the owner of the Boss) I think Eriks car will be seeing some upgrades......But we are talking Road, so maybe maybe not. But would be good to see a ZL1 on a road course with a real owner.

    yea Erik has already done a couple small upgrades to his zl1 ( H/E, intake/pulley I believe) knowing him he will tweak the suspension some more and definitely tune ( paul is a very good tuner) Im glad Erik is communicating with Van, he was the only person I could think especially in south florida. They are good guys and the friendly competition will be healthy...ill be stopping by their shop with my new car, they are the ones that did the work on my previous car and I was very satisfied :beer:

    Nice laps Van. How does the 2013 compare to your 07 in stock form? Carmine said the car looked great out there and did surprisingly well on stock tires

    Stock form vehicle to vehicle.

    Night and Day different. Ford hit one out of the park with the SVT Performance and Track Pack 2013 GT500. It's really not fair to compare it to the 2007 because the direction has so dramatically changed with these vehicles. A 2007-2012 can me modified to make a respectable appearance on the road course.

    But then again I think we already proved that! :beer:

    Sounds like you and Erik of Torq with his ZL1 are going to meet up at Homestead this weekend for a H2H.
    Sounds like a lot of fun, and nice camaraderie with two car guys and two killer cars.

    It's possibly looking like I might be able to get down to Homestead and see if we can do some head to head match ups. Should be cool. Waiting to hear from the director of Hooked On Driving.

    We'll see. My car felt more reliable and consistent with the tune. Other than that it is bone stock and I've asked Erik at Torq for his plans on set up.

    We are discussing over on C5. All things look like a go at this point. Simply want to speak with the Hooked On Driving director before I make any commitments or announcements.

    Actually Saturday afternoon at Sebring a Corvette owner and friend of mine suggested I contact Erik. Had no idea this would happen or come on so quick.

    You did suggest it as well and I appreciate the recommendation.

    Looks like a go right now. I heard back from Hooked on Driving and that's clear I just need to get with Erik and get some guidelines.
