Your Dream Car???

Uh... I guess I can't prove wrong a stock Z06 pulling 10's... but I've never seen a 500hp, stock wheeled anything pull 10's.

If it's true, then every Z06 driver I've seen a the track must really not know how to drive, cause I've only seen 12's. Not that 12's is the best they could do, but you'd think 11's would be easy if the car can pull 10's. I'll have to keep an eye out this year.

Did yall notice the notes on his slip?? That run was with a -850 DA. His 60' times were in the 1.7's so I have no problem beleiving it. MIR is a good track too. Let me find some videos of a c6 zo6 I have and I'll post them up.

Guitarted, read what you posted. That guy doesn't have a clue. All he knows is sliderules and calculators. Quote "Each shift alone costs about 1 second, thus 3 shifts alone is like 3 seconds lost and a loss of about 60-100 ft/bs of torque during upshifts and having engine recover from the loss of timing which is already low for WOT on the Z06."
Just that paragraph alone should clue you in that the guy is a little dumb...

If you really think 500 hp will make a corvette run 10's in the 1/4 mile on stock tires, then I'm F**king Ben Afleck

I agree...'vette's too heavy to make 10s with 500hp.

I disagree. I'll admit I've never seen a stock Z06 run 10's with my own two eyes but I've seen one get dang close. Here's one vid I finally found, he ran a 12.4 on his shakedown run. As it's obvious he had "slight" takeoff problems.LOL To me since this guy was knocking off 11.1-11.2's by the end of the day, I think it's perfectly reasonable for a better driver in better weather to knock another .3-.5 seconds off the time.I'll keep looking for the other vids..

Guys seriously think about this. A stock SRT-10 RAM can run high 12's in good weather with a really good driver. So your saying a very aerodynamic CAR that weighs at least 1600-1800lbs less, better traction, better gearing,less parasytic loss will only run 1 second quicker, with the "same" hp???? Based on times people have posted over and over, do you really think the LS7 only makes 500hp..
