First two runs are Raph's (bubu). Nice runs Raph...those e85 GTR's are insane.

Last one against the Z is me. That Z beat me (and everyone else he ran except Terry Burger at the prior airstrip event) and stayed on the tail of the tuned ZR1 at this event so I was very happy with the outcome. Good times.

Good runs guys. You are correct the GTR's on E85 are very fast. Will need VT3 to run him down

Good power!
When the MT Vette (mis?)shifted (into 3rd?) it was like it hit a brick wall.
If I was into drag racing I'd definitely want an automated manual and I'd probably own a used GTR or 997tt...

Well, someone at the Airstrip event bought a new 2013 GTR and did an e85 conversion and it cost him almost $15K. Right around the cost of a 650 S/C system for an M3. He bought new parts and paid someone to install.

wow 15k for E85 conversion! I feel like 15k could have been better spent on a GTR, unless he has bigger plans which the E85 will support.

FBO E85 GTR's are not all created equal, but low 10's at 136+MPH are well worth the 15K price IMHO. I've seen two different E85 GTR's pull on a Supercharged C6 Z06 and a E85 tune/pulley ZR1, so it's worth it, if that's your thing. Alpha 9 GTR setups, which is the next step, are pricey, I'd venture to say a healthy E85 FBO GTR will run pretty close to an Alpha 9 GTR on pump gas.


FBO E85 GTR Vs. E85 Modded ZR1



On this one, the vid is way too dark, but you get the point, FBO E85 pulling a Alpha 9 GTR on pump gas -
