This is definitely in the top 10. All my dream cars are actually old cars.

'33 Dodge or Ford Rat Rod truck with a 3rd gen 392 HEMI in front of a 4-speed manual.
'32 Ford with a Supra Turbo 6yl, single turbo upgrade and other goodies.
'56 International S-130 dually with a Cummins and flat bed.
An 60's Mack truck.
Milner Rod of course.
59' Caddilac Coupe with a Banks Duramax.
'50 Merc of course!

...list goes on.

And can run high 10's bone stock

Anyone believing this, I have a bridge to sell you.

It would take about 600 horspower to do this with a car weighing over 3,200 lbs with the driver.

Stock runflat tires stink as sidewalls are too stiff.

At 40 degree weather the good air for good engine performance only but with cold tires and track tires are even overpowered more.

Torque management during launch plus the wheelhop function PCM has would kill launch and every shift made.

Someone is not being honest or the track used ( by the way tracks for insurance would not allow a stock car to run those speeds without all the safety gear, including roll bar) either is using this for marketing purpose or their timing gear is not calibrated.

Sounds more like a owner who wants to claim it big, but anyone knowing the C5/C6 design knows due to rearend weight, a lot is lost due to poor downforce for traction.

Each shift alone costs about 1 second, thus 3 shifts alone is like 3 seconds lost and a loss of about 60-100 ft/bs of torque during upshifts and having engine recover from the loss of timing which is already low for WOT on the Z06.

What this does is then make all other Z06 owners to think something is wrong with their Z06 and have been know to sell car thinking it is a lemon for tuning low 12 ET around 118 MPH.

If a car could be a daily 10 second car, you can bet GM would have marketed with that spec.

there are others claiming the new viper acr being unveiled later this year will produce 678 hp. This again is false....The motor remains with a 600 hp output...the rest is cosmetic, and handling
