A local C6 owner "called out" C7 owners for some friendly racing. Today, we all finally met up at Orlando Speedworld. Weather was hot...although DragTimes may show 80-81*, I was seeing 84-85* on my exterior temp display.

So the DA was in the ~1800' range.

I made one pass against the C6 and was car #28. He red-lighted pretty badly, as my RT was .028.

The .831 ET advantage of the C7 is undeniable, and it's nearly 4 mph faster. This is about what I expected, as the new A6 setup (smaller convertor, higher stall speed, revised programming) in the C7's works very well at the track.


You can see how easily the C7 stops the C6's pull after it got the jump and started walking away from it.
Another A6 C7 was there today too. He was running 11.8's and also ran the C6 with similar results. Skip to 2:18 in the below video to see that result.

Nice driving sir! Thanks for the video, as I've been wondering all week if the race was going to take place.
