Were you using launch control?

OHHHHHH SNAP!!! :canttalk:

Clock doesn't start until you leave the line, not when it turns green. Gosh dang streetlights-a-foolin' everyone these days...

1) Reaction time has no bearing on the 1/4 mile time or trap speed

2) Corvettes don't have launch control (except the driver)

3) The ZR1 has two specific measures to eliminate wheel-hop. Different size half shafts from one side to the other, and special programming of the magnetic shocks

I don't think that's wheel hop that you're hearing. That sounds like the rev limiter when he shifts to 2nd.

ZR1 was supposed to have launch control - anyone?

zr1 does not have launch control. it had wheel hop in 2nd gear. this was my first and only pass in this car and only my 3rd time down the 1/4 mile in a corvette!

One piece of standard tech that only a few have discussed thus far is the ZR1's launch control. The system automatically limits engine torque to keep the rear tires hooked up. It's different from traction control because launch control actually allows some wheel spin and progressively feeds in power to produce jack-rabbit starts. With it, even novice drivers can maximize nearly all the thrust the ZR1 has to offer.

We start our runs with launch control engaged, to test its effectiveness. From a standstill, we raise the blown V8's idle to an even 3000 rpm and sidestep the clutch. The tires let out a muffled screech and immediately spin. But right at that instant, we feel the engine soften its output as the launch-control computer does its thing. After perhaps a few dozen feet, the tires regain traction again and the computer releases all the ponies. We're off.
