Top speed:

Discussion in '2002 Chevrolet Corvette Z06' started by lurbo, Mar 1, 2003.

  1. the topspeed is 280km/h

    wow. thanks man. thats kinda quick. what do you think, would you say thats fast, RS4man? or just kinda fast? give me your input on this.I would say its fast, but I want to know YOUR opinion. Do tell.

    (By the way, this post was wrought with sarcasm and condesension. I dont actually care what your definition of fast is, call me an asshole, but its true.)

    Well ok I can say that this car is quick.BUT I don't think that it's only the torque which made the car to do the 0-100km/h in just 3,9seconds it's mostly the gearbox because otherwise why does this car have "low" topspeed for a 405hp.Here are other cars with almost the same output:
    Ferrari 360 Modena:300km/h 0-100km/h:4,4seconds
    Porsche 911 turbo (993):295km/h 0-100km/h:4,4seconds
    Porsche 911 turbo (996):305km/h 0-100km/h:4,2seconds


    This car IS quick and it has a great acceleration but not a very good topspeed for its output.The torque would've played the 30% of the role for the acceleration and all the other 70% the gearbox.

    It's cause it is not very aerodynamic. I'm sure all of yall have taken Vehicle Dynamics like me, and to see that aero drag is related to speed squared. And a car that is slightly more aerodynamic can go faster w/ the same power or less because at high speeds, it's all about aerodynamics. Besides, when are you going to go 180 mph anyway. I can see 150 mph every once in a while. Which a Viper gets to it in NO time. Faster than those other cars.
     
  5. Re: Top speed:

    The gearing is 3.07 in the rear end. W/ no wind drag this thing could do 300 mph in 6th gear w/ its gearing. It's the torque that accelerates it to 60 really fast. 1st gear will take you to 60, 2nd to about 90, so it's obviously not the gearing. One positive is that you do'nt have to waste time shifting into 2nd to hit 60, so that makes it pretty quick. But no other car has enough torque to get away with that. These things make 450 rwtq stock. More than any other production car made I believe, I can't think of any that make more bone stock. The new SRT-10 makes 482 rwtq = 525 ft-lbs. Monster.

    Damn, I'm a jackass, HAHA, I'm posting about the wrong damn car. I was talking about a Viper. Oooops. Yeah the Corvette Z06 can hit close to 180 mph. And this car is pretty aerodynamic actually.
     
  7. Re: Top speed:

    That's OK, but you're right about the Viper though....
     
  8. Re: Top speed:

    hehe doesn't matter.
     
  9. Re: Top speed:

    i just wanted to point this out. a turbo porsche is quite a bit quicker then the factory claims. ive heard of 3.8 and even a few high 3.7 times on it. juss wanted to say it. <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/cboardhtml/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>
