  1. Speeds wrong!!!

    Its goes 212<!-- Signature -->
     
  2. How does it work then!

    I admit it cant do 212. Modern race cars have 650hp to go 200.
     
  3. Um Vetteman whatever it is that your smoking send me some.
     
  4. So 175 is the correct top speed then right?
     
  5. I have seen top speed runs of 172, i am not sure about the 175, but i suppose if conditions are perfect.......<!-- Signature -->
     
  6. The car is actually capable of 180mph, the best I've seen is 183.<!-- Signature -->

    Maybe on a dyno with no air resistance.

    Top speed for a stock manual comes in 5th gear (6th gear is a little to tall) at a little north of 170.

  8. if this thing will make 180 what's the point of the zo6? it does 171, according to this site (the 2001 Zo6)
     
  9. The Z06 can do closer to 178.
     
  10. 2003 Viper has 500hp and goes over 212.
     
  11. i heard these only push like 158 and the z06 pushes like 175, i probly heard rong tho
     
  12. OK the viper only goes 190ish and this goes 175 and the Z06 goes 171 is it that hard to comprehend. My god some of u people r so stupid
     
  13. i agree, some people are stupid, can't believe anything these days unless it is fully explained to them. Have some faith people!
     
  14. Actually ,it's 172 for the base Corvette and 171 for the ZO6. But, if you give me your Corvette and around $30K, you can have a 640 rear wheel horsepower twin-supercharged V-8 and 220 MPH on street tires and 91 octane fuel. I tested one to 60 MPH in only 3.31 seconds and a 1/4 mile in 11 seconds at 133.6 MPH. It had a 6 speed sequential gear box. It looks wild! Finally, it sounds like a Saleen S7.
     
  15. And for anyone who may wonder why the Z06 is so hot if it only hits 171: top speed is not all there is to performance. The Z06 is geared for better acceleration throughout its full range of speed, which is vital when flying through turns on a track. There's also not too many places in this country where one can hit top speed on a track (and if you did, you most likely would have put some money into improving your Z06 and this wouldn't apply).
     
  16. u serious? cuz ur wrong
     
  17. It doesnt go 212... nowhere near it.
