Sal Collaziano said:I've seen a stock Z06 run 11.7 and I've heard of one running 11.6. These guys haven't beat all the stock Viper's they've raced... The guys who know how to race their Z06's are consistently in the high 11's and the same goes for the Vipers - only a bit faster.
In regards to the GN - that was an amazing setup. Even those regular T-Types were so far ahead of their time.. It was all downhill for a long, long time when they got rid of the GN...
With all due respect, my numbers aren't off - and that's a fact. Sorry...Katshot said:Sal,
The Viper did a 12.4 and the Vette did a 12.8. So again, I feel your times are off by quite a bit.
Sal Collaziano said:Look.
I said: That's really amazing! Z06 and Viper territory!
You said: That's WAY quicker than a ZO6 or Viper Sal.
Being that 2001 and newer Z06's CAN do 11.6 in the quarter mile without any modifications, it's NOT way quicker than a Z06.
Nobody cares what Road and Track gets in the quarter mile. My numbers ARE possible for a stock Z06. Not MAY or MAYBE. So they are representative of what the car CAN do under the right circumstances with the right driver. Just like the 11.6 second CTS.
P.S. I'm going to move this into the Lounge soon...
I agreed - Viper is powerplant!Sal Collaziano said:Now put that 11.97 second Viper in the hands of someone who drives one daily and brings it to the track frequently, and I bet you get even better numbers.. The biggest problem with these cars is hooking up. It takes a heck of a lot of practise getting these cars to take off right.
That is certainly a good possibility... I can never really know for certain...BlackoutSpecV said:Sal: If you "saw" a Z06 do a 11 second pass then most likely the guy was yanking your chain when saying it was stock. Because I go to Atco and E-Town a decent amount and the fastest "stock" Z06 I have ever seen has ran a 12.3 and I saw one run an 11.8 but he had drag slicks on. So IMO the guy was BS'ing you.
Virtually identical to the times I quoted again. Sorry Sal.Ralph said:Nov. 2002 Motortrend puts the Z06 at 12.85 @ 114.36, and the Viper SRT-10 12.37 @ 117.21, and this is all I have to go by as I don't get out to our track anymore to watch them rip 'er up. :burn:
