    I know this vid is from last year, but ... glad to see the cars getting used. Would like to see you guys hit a road course. The Vette should really shine in the corners. Good luck, stay safe. 👍

    Fast forward to June 2019 and these country boys from Rural America have a worldwide audience of 1.2 Million people and content that is so much more than dragstrip racing. What does the future hold for them?

    Should of tried the launch control! Would of left alot harder off the line and easier to get a good reaction time.

    My Camaro has launch control which is awesome. All you do is come to a complete stop floor it all the way and it will hold the rpm at 5000 then just dump the clutch. It basically makes it so the car won't spin the tires when you launch kinda like a two step.

    I heard you guys make a comment about how you forgot to put on the traction control during one of your launches oh, well even the 7-speed cars have launch control. look up how to use it on RU-clip there's nobody videos it might help you with your times

  • ACE1252

    7.7 isn't bad for your first time to the track, especially in that monster. It should have a lot more left in it. I watched a C6 ZR1 do a 7.8 spinning most of the way down the track. I've got a buddy who has a '05 C6 auto. His times were not good until he disabled the traction control. With the power in your machine, you gents will need to be very careful if doing could get away from you quick.

    You need to hold your revs up higher for your launch, then very quickly feather the clutch in while not letting your revs drop. Keep the gas on while shifting and dump the clutch on each shift.

    I love y'alls projects. You two are awesome at fixing cars and, if y'all aint( yes I said ain't not aren't) then y'all put on an excellent facade! Anyways y'all do good work from what the video is show! The videos are awesome but I got to say what do y'all do with the cars afterwards? Also constructive criticism put a little bass in your voice please that's all I ask and I'm not trying to be hard! The last thing I'm trying to be is a troll! I only even say that because I love y'alls videos so much but it plays different with high pitch. I'm not a hater if y'all email me I will take this down I promise you it's not a big deal. I am amazed that y'all was work for some young guys y'all on y'alls game!! You young men are the truth

    You guys need to learn how to drive stickshift. Over here (the Netherlands) it's pretty standard. You both have the car almost stalling when getting of the mark. You gotta rev it up way more.

    I'm sure you guys must have figured out by now,.. but, keeping the traction control on will cost you a second or more on your time. Especially out of the hole, then on every shift. It totally shuts down the RPM. Think about how much of a restriction that is,..holding back power below the amount needed to break tires in the slightest.

    Nice to see you guys out there! Great job! Love your videos! I have the 2nd fastest bone stock on drag radials C6Z06 time and the 3rd fastest 100% bone stock time over on the Corvette forum (username Dr.Ron over there). A few helpful tips. Don't go through the water before your burnout on street tires!! You won't get all of the water off, plus the front tires drag water to the starting line reducing your traction for the launch. Do a 5300 rpm burnout to the 1st sign of smoke. Just press the brake hard enough to hold the car. Then release the brake and ride out the burnout to the starting line. Try to stage as shallow as possible (barely light the 2nd staging bulb) for the best ET. Do NOT worry about reaction time unless you are running to beat someone. It doesn't effect your ET. Shift at redline as fast as possible. Lift when you shift to minimize tire spin on shifts. TC off. Tour mode will actually help traction by letting the car squat back onto the rear tires. Air the fronts up to 45psi and the rears down to 26psi. Launch at like 3100 rpm and ride the clutch out some while flooring it, but at a fast, gradual pace once she is squatted back onto the rear tires. You need to get that 60' down. You should be able to get at least a 1.7x , which will drop the ET a good bunch. Remember that in the summer heat the car will run a good 1-2 tenths of a second slower. Keep at it and keep the videos coming boyz!
