M6 walks all over C6 Z06

  1. It has more to do with the confidence the driver has in the car and his ability to control, I think. Nevertheless, I've illustrated it! <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>
     
  2. Well, I didn't know this, but apparently there was a change in the suspension settings from 2006 to 2007 Z06 models:

    "We were so surprised by the Z06’s friendly handling that we contacted Tadge Juechter, the vehicle chief engineer for the Corvette, and he told us that, for 2007, the Z06’s shock-damping rates have been trimmed back a little since Jan Magnussen’s epic seven-minute, 43-second lap of the Nürburgring’s Nordschleife, making the car less jumpy at the limit. Bottom line, says Juechter: The car has gotten better.

    No kidding. At Buttonwillow you could see the editors recalibrate as they went through the cars, resetting their notions of the Z06’s track drivability. In “The Sports-Car World Cup” [C/D, September 2006], a Porsche 911 Turbo narrowly edged the Z06 for second place in a three-car fight that included a Ferrari F430. The ’06 Z06’s tricky handling was a major reason — if not the reason — for its third-place finish. Now with the new shocks, we’ve changed our tune, and the Z06 edges out the GT3, which many of us prefer to the 911 Turbo."
     
  3. The GT-R will shit on the M6 tough...
     
  4. They also nailed down the roof.

    Juechter said it's for extra rigidity <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/wink.gif"></A>.

    They have to keep making changes to improve it. On the other hand the M6 doesn't need anything to be re-touched or re-calibrated because it's already perfect. <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/grin.gif"></A>
     
  6. I'll shit on the GT-R <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/angry.gif"></A>

  8. *hugz*
     
  9. News to me as well. Must have got it right if it's edging out a GT3 at anything.
     
  10. Doesn't this pretty much destroy what you've been arguing all along? The new Z06 is infinitely easier to drive than the 2006. If I'm in a new Z06, the M6 can go **** itself despite my lack of skill.
     
  11. NO U!
     
  12. I should mention that a big reason I'm being so vocal here is that the 6 Series is among the ugliest cars to ever be produced.
     
  13. ARGHHHH


    It's actually like the only Bangle'd BMW that I tolerate...<A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/angry.gif"></A>

  15. its much better then the 5
     
  16. For real. I thought he was turning things around with this one. Then he repeatedly and forcefully shit the bed on all the designs thereafter.
     
  17. See this? This is what we call an "epic failure." Say it with me now...

    But, upload a 1-series pic please. They look "wrong" from like every angle.
     
  19. I just honestly don't understand WTF he was thinking when he decided to make it look like the trunk is melting over where the rest of the tail light should be. RIP boxy/awesome BMW. <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/sad.gif"></A>
