Proof of the Famous "Driver Mod" with a 2015 Corvette Z06
So we've all heard of the "Driver Mod" and know that it can be quite true. Well RoadTestTV was given the oppertunity recently to proof that Driver Mods are real! The onwer of this Beautiful 2015 Corvette Z06 is Driver #1 whom when you see in the video cannot even execute a proper burnout to heat up the tires which results in a 60ft that you'd expect from a stock 1993 Chevy Camaro! Driver #2 was an experienced drag racer driving the 2015 Corvette Z06 for the first time. This particular Corvette Z06 is powered by a Supercharged 6.2 liter making 650 horsepower with a 8 speed automatic transmission. Yes an automatic can be effected by a Driver Mod too!
Driver Mod Results
The owner, Driver #1 ran a 12.03 @ 123mph with a 2.0 60 foot time. Two of the main reasons of this horible time was the drivers inexperience to heat up the tires and that resulted in spinning. Well Driver #2 was able to heat up the tires properly which resulted in a 1.6 60 foot time rocketing the Z06 down the 1/4 mile in 10.56 seconds @ 131 mph. A much more realistic time given the Corvette's capabilites. Check out the video below for all the action!
