Yeah, Iím not claiming my car is insanely fast or anything. But for a few easy bolt ons and essentially stock reliability, Iím really happy with how it turned out. And at least for me, I see zero...

I had a similar dilemma. Buy a SS 1LE and supercharge it, or go with a ZL1. Since I’d done a bunch of pretty serious stock bottom end builds in the past, and decided I needed a break, I bought a...

The problem is that it seems to affect most ZL1s. I swear the 2 other 2018s I drove (an A10 and an M6) before I ordered mine did it. Mine did it on day one ó or as soon as I started making pulls...

I’m still really disappointed in how they implemented this. This was a great opportunity, and it’s half assed at best. I really don’t like that there’s no tangible evidence that the flash has even...

I don’t think anyone’s mentioned it, but I’m betting there was some throttle closure going on in 30 degree temps on the stock pull. These ECUs are sneaky like that. Whether it was doing the same...

I don’t see any reason why it wouldn’t. Ride height is the only thing I could see being an issue, since they are taller than stock. At stock ride height, I’d think it would be just fine.

His car is one of the few bone stock cars to break into the 10’s, so I don’t think he’s missing any power. I think tire wear and temperature plays a big role here. I definitely have traction...

The rear wheel will sit about 1.4Ē further inboard vs a stock front wheel (6.29Ē backspace vs 7.69Ē backspace). No way that will work.

It would require something like this to work safely:
