Re: i beat one Why is it dissapointing? Nissan makes a car for 45k dollars that puts out 450hp, runs the quarter in high 11's, and won 93% of all races it has EVER entered requiring stock production vehicles. Has the Z06 done that? No. Not to mention, unless you live in a Southern state, you have to put the car away for four months. Doesn't that suck.... The Z06 does not "hang" with the NSX. The Z06 is a cheap go-fast car. That's all it is. It has neither the aire, nor the luxury of the NSX. I have NEVER seen a time less than 12.7 for the Z06 by any non-biased major magazine in the quarter-mile. If you have seen a 12.4....POST IT. Not only did R&T and C&D NOT get 12.4 times...they said it would be IMPOSSIBLE to do on street tires. By the way...why is it the Corvette participates in the GT300 in JGTC instead of GT500 with the big boys? As for ability....the 320HP GTR runs the 'ring in 8:22, wheareas the 350HP C5 does the same in 8:40. That's a 20 second difference. Do you really think the Z06 with less power than an N1, both with further tuned suspensions is going to keep up on the 'ring? I don't think so. What's the difference in skidpad between the C5 and Z06?... .08g It sticks to the road a little better than the C5 and it has 50 more HP.
