  2. Damn, hard to argue with 7 liters of american muscle.
     
  3. 7 liters, 500 Hp?! Is it a diesel?
     
  4. the ferrari didn't even pushed it.
     
  5. actually its hand built, has a 7000 rpm redline and a 11.0:1 compression ratio. Plus its compact.

    Sounds like a proper supercar engine to me.

    EDIT : Plus dont forget the enormous potetial.

    EDIT #2 - Plus this has been argued a million times on sc.net already. Just enjoy the video instead of nitpicking.
     
  6. Push rods and leaf springs....however I liked seeing the race live when it took place this saturday...
     
  7. I had seen the video elsewhere and they said the F430 started in the wrong gear. ....?

     
  8. Good race and the Z06 pulls like hell in 4th gear.
     
  9. Hmnm the Corvette sounds pretty lame :/
     
  10. The 430 was surprisingly fast, I was expecting it to lose a LOT worse.
     
  11. I'm at the opposite end, after reviewing Sport Auto's intime accleration figures for both the F430 and Z06, i was expecting the Z06 to lose.
     
  12. You really dislike the Corvette don't you? Because i've never heard you say anything good about it <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/disappointed.gif"></A>

    Each his own i suppose.
     
  13. I was there I taped and the owner floor the car. He did all he could. In fact the Z06 was one of the fastest car that day

    other cars, Gt2, 997TT, Gallardo, M6, Kleeman K4 and 20 other cars.
     
  14. no the z06 started in seconds gear, not the ferrari.

    Once again I was there that day and I did a lot of taping..
     
  15. my next video is about koengisegg CCX. I just finsihed editing and I will upload it ASAP

  17. It's not really that, it's just that everybody hypes the whole thing to death. I'm sure it's a really nice car with a great engine but yeah well... <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>
    Plus i'm not a big fan of the looks, i like the C5 allot more.
     
  18. dont forget that your listening to a recording on a computer.
     
  19. that is hilarious, It would never pull hard on an 11.5 second car.
     
  20. Oh, alright.
     
  21. dumbass...
     
  22. phew, the roof didnt fall off the zo6, thats good!
     
  23. Sorry to say it but these cars are in two very different segments, even though they have similar performance.
     
  24. ya, one market/buyer has alot more to spend than the other
