  5. Ok. But the C6 is the newest car out of all of those. It makes sense that it's got one pof the best time :slap:

    If I recall correctly, it got the same exact time as the Z06. :eek3:

    Oh you forgot to mention the C6 time was with the Z51 package.

    I think the point is that the nearest cars cost 3-4 times the corvette

    :ugh: that's not the fucken point. It's pretty amazing that a 50k car got the same times as exotics and bikes.
     
  16. I love how the details are always glossed over. :cool:

    Has anyone else seen the dyno charts for the LS2? They're pretty damn nice, with much improved low and midrange torque/hp over the LS6, with the LS6 barely edging it out in power near the top due to a higher redline and I'm guessing heads setup for better high end power.

    C6 w/ Z51 is still $50,000. It's not like it's a $20,000 package or something. It's still damn impressive. I don't even see the point of going to that track with the base suspension. Go big or go home.

    That list is flawed, to say the least. Source?
     
  22. I dont find it to be a fair comparison.

    just throwing this in there. i know the x5 le mans isnt production but it got 7.49,92 on the ring. the way they posted it it would seem that the c6 was top 4 in fastest lap on the ring.
