Corvette ZR1 Speed Run at the Mojave Mile

Matt Farrah of the Smoking Tire returns to the Mojave Mile with a 2011 Corvette ZR1, and the goal is to hit 180mph. His last visit was in a Porsche GT3 RS, which is more of a corner-carver than a straight-line warrior, thus he was only able to achieve a speed of 166mph, falling short of his goal at the time which was 175mph. This time around he has a more suitable weapon for the task at hand, the 2011 ZR1 is packing 638hp and launch control, which should be a recipe for success. Is it enough to send the Vette to 180mph in a mile? And does taping the car for improved aerodynamics really make any difference?
