In the manual-trans car, we staged up and engaged the traction control, which took some getting used to. Let’s just say the word “awesome” comes to mind when describing the system, and using it made flipping the ZL1 off the line a breeze. We also noticed that the 60-foot times were very consistent between the runs. Of course, we still had to row the gears down the track, and that was made a bit more complicated since we had to go to Fourth gear right before the traps or the fuel cut-off rpm would be hit. We’re thinking that bumping up that threshold just a touch would have let us stay in Third through the lights. The trans was much easier to shift compared to our stock SS and the shift-light equipped HUD made grabbin’ the gears a bit easier. Our best time was 12.976 at 109.97 on a 2.177 60-foot.
