Default Watch A Corvette ZR1 Do 190 MPH Without The Giant Rear Wing



Quote:
The Texas Mile isn’t for people who like calm weekend drives. It’s an event where cars can run flat out for four times the length of a quarter mile, where a 2006 Ford GT went nearly 294 mph once, and where the 200-mph club is an honor. This 2019 Corvette ZR1 apparently hit 190.1 mph there over the weekend.

While 190.1 mph is modest in the scope of Texas Mile speeds like 260.8 mph for a 2011 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 or 244.2 mph for a 1992 Corvette, the Texas Mile Facebook page said this 755-horsepower ZR1 came to the event’s airport runway completely stock. It also said the folks at Car & Driver brought the car, which has an equally as modest starting price of $120,000, out there.

Here’s video from the run the Texas Mile page said topped out at 190.1 mph, which is still slower than Chevrolet’s claimed top speed for the car at 212 mph:

The page said the ZR1 was completely stock, but it also doesn’t look as mean as you’d expect. That’s because after some slower mile runs, the group with the ZR1 decided to peel off the wing that comes on the car for extra track downforce.

This ZR1 came to the track with the $2,995 performance package that takes the rear wing from mild to so large that it somewhat resembles a coffee table, and produces a claimed 950 pounds of downforce at speed. The Texas Mile page said it ran nearly 10 mph slower at 180.8 mph with the wing on the back, and that it was in the 190-mph range after a “few tweaks” including the wing removal.

LOL people can laugh and talk shit about that big ass wing all they want. If its worth 10 mph id say its worth it.

Makes me wonder what the wing on a ZL1 1LE is worth?

Jesus, the amount of time and money I've thrown away at JUST DD's makes me want to cry. I'm awful at even getting some value back out of my cars, because more often than not I buy something odd ball that no one wants, or would take forever to sell, so I end up trading it in, and losing my ass.
