SRT Bill Great story, These TH should called grocery smashers not grocery getters. I've smashed a few pizzas on my way home several times. LOL

Brute426 Short story from last night, newer Subaru STI catches me at a long red light I see him waving his arms to roll down my window. So I do. He yells awd to awd I gave him the thumbs up turned the knob to track light turned yellow the other direction so I hit launch and put foot to the floor to get ready, light goes green I let him jump into the intersection first. As soon as I see his tail lights I let her fly. All the groceries hit the back door lol ( coming from the store) I passed him by the time we hit the other side of the intersection. And from that point on I’m not even sure if he was still on it in the mirror it looked like something was sucking him backwards lol.
Gauges showed 0-60 was 3.4sec with a 1.21G launch t I took it to 115mph and let off. He drove up to the next light and with his jaw in his window sil he said that’s a Trackhawk huh? I just said yes it is have a good night and took my smashed groceries to the house 😎

Car-Guy I'm really surprised we don't see more posts on this thread. I've had a couple of close ones with a few "supercars" but never been beat yet.

As of yesterday, you can add late models ZL1 Camaros to the list of those you can see in the TH rear view. (ZL1's are rated at @650hp.) I have no idea if he was stock but it was a really good pull from ~70 to ~120. It was actually pretty close. He punched it first at about 70 when his front bumper was about even with my front door. At ~120 he was about 2 full car lengths behind when we both needed to shut them down. I suspect it would have been even more in an actual 1/4 mile standing start. He didn't try again...

At least the ZL1 is worthy challenger....

ROCKETW19 most people have no clue how to race. a lot of fly bys by the rookies. no one is smart enough to actually line up and race. maybe to scared to loose. I had one real race in my Raptor VS a F150 he was smart enough to pull up honk 3 times and launch, no one else seems to under stand this.

ThawkMike They are converting the known red light cameras to speed cameras on this particular road, so that's not a big deal, as there are maybe 5 within the city limits. The big question is if they will add more or even start using portable ones.

We shall see. And TBH, it is a notoriously dangerous stretch of road, as you get some real dopes thinking every light is a drag strip.

New X5m with dealer tags still on it and a 600cc bike both ate it at same light Monday night. Bike should have been closer, but kid couldn't get out of hole with it properly and it was over before he knew it.

Bad news is, speed cameras are coming to the road by years end.
Not sure if this stuff really works against cameras but it's been around for awhile. Maybe it's worth a try... https://www.phantomplate.com/

Similarly, I've been using radar detectors/scramblers for more than a decade now. There aren't a 100% but they seem to work pretty well, especially at a distance. If you are too close to the radar, forget it.

9MPG Not a kill story, but still a fun story. It was Monterey Car Week here in Cali last week which draws super cars from all over. As I was heading down there, I messed around with a Lambo Huracan for about 20 minutes until I inevitably ran out of gas. He couldn’t shake me or pass me, and at one point I was right on his ass from 60 to over 130. I find it hilarious when considering what the Lambo driver must have been thinking to have this big Jeep keeping up with his $300k sports car.

I can see my post wasn't clear. I wasn't referring to Z06 Vettes until I mentioned it the last paragraph when I said "Now a C7Z06 against a TH is going to be very close in the 1/4." My early references to Vettes were the everyday run of the mill non Z06 Vettes. Or 95+% of the Vettes you see on the road.


BTW, my SRT's times/speeds were about the same as yours. My best TH time/speed in the 1/4 is 11.2 @122 which would say a TH and C7Z06 would cross the end of the 1/4 about dead even... After that the Z06 is going to be pulling away.
