  1. Re: Why bag this acievement?

    A Chevrolet is a Chevrolet and a Ferrari is a Ferrari. Who cares if it can go 254.7 mph. Its still a cherolet and that means its a piece of american crap!!!!!!! Sometimes its more important what company your car is from. I would drive a cardboard box on bottle caps, if it is a Ferrari!!!!
     
  2. Re: Why bag this acievement?

    Yeah, Chevy is Chevy. A car company that makes REASONABLY priced cars that in some cases outperform Ferrari. That in itself is sad. Not to mention that the Ferrari company is the equivalent of a whore in the car world.
     
  3. Re: Why bag this acievement?

    Will938, please explain how Ferrari is "the whore of the car world"?
     
  4. Re: Why bag this acievement?

    because it pieced itself out to different companies all over the world more than once.
     
  5. Re: Why bag this acievement?

    I was under the impression that it is wholly owned by the FIAT group.
     
  6. Re: Why bag this acievement?

    hey big block, you think ferrari's are cocksucking cars! hahahaha don't get me started on chevrolet then! Most cars that come out of chevrolete are cheap shit cars like those useless blazers! name me one crap car from ferrari! <!-- Signature -->

    and you said great acceleration... well ten seconds in the quarter mile with 880 hp is pretty pathetic! well it might be good for 1988, but is pathetic nowdays! and you said great handling, how do you know that this car has great handling... why don't you prove to me that it has great handling.

    and callaway isn't gonna make another of these cars with a newer corvette cuase they wouldn't want to waste hundreds of thousands of dollars like they did before! and also i'm sick adn tired of listening to you to... everytime i say something your the next one to reply. I didn't ask you to say something and i'm gettign anoyed by the way you TYPE SOME SENTENCES LIKE THIS! it makes me wonder whether you can drive or not since you type like a little boy!

    So when I say stuff i'm not asking you to reply, get a life ok! go to some other forums besides corvette and saleen forums! ever thought of looking at what people say in other forums that aren't american cars!</b></blockquote><center><hr width="90%"></center><!-- END QUOTE -->

    What mistakes have I made little boy, you're the one that uses words like "costomable", like come on man, for you're own sake use a spell checker cause you make too many mistakes, so don't try and make me laugh by saying you have good enough grammer/spelling skills to correct mine! <IMG SRC="http://www.supercars.net/servlets/cMsg/html/emoticons/smile.gif">

    And buddy I reply any time I hear some idiot shooting his mouth (and most people will agree you happen to be one of the bigger idiots on this forum). In other words I'll reply anytime I want, don't like then go cry.

    And what issue of motor trend was that by the way?

    The reason this car is such a big deal, is because after so long it still holds the record for highest top speed for a street legal car.
    Ofcourse on the track there are many cars these days that can beat it, but the fact it still holds the record to this day makes it a car that does deserve some respect.
    In 10 years should we also call the Mclaren a shit car because so many cars then would be able to beat it? Ofcourse NOT!</b></blockquote><center><hr width="90%"></center><!-- END QUOTE -->

    umm you still haven't answered my question! here it is again. Why don't YOU prove that this car handles well?

    also I guess it does deserve some respect, but I hate it when some people say this car can beat the shit out of any car just becuase it has a high top speed! <!-- Signature -->
     
  8. Re: Why bag this acievement?

    they are now
     
  9. Re: Why bag this acievement?

    Also what about class, this car doesn't have class! so for you retards who are comparing this car to a lambo, ferrari, buggati, or some other supercar, make sure you realize what class is! This car isn't even close the the class that a ferrari is in!<!-- Signature -->
     
  10. Re: Why bag this acievement?

    I see all this talk about acceleration, well if you check out the gear ratios you'll see that they're set for top speed and not 0-60. A few little adjustments and you'll have a car that still is 200+ mph and will have a less than 3 second 0-60.

    All you idiots out there who diss this car because of the country it's from or because it's "ugly" really need to get your brains checked. If you are a REAL car fan you wouldn't let crap like that stand in the way of saying this is one badass car...yeah it handles badly but what it lacks in handling it makes up for in other categories.
     
  11. How can you people have the nerve to bag this car? It is the fastest car in the world, it isnt an estimate, it has been clocked at 409.9kph. You #%$s say "My ferrari could beat that!" Well your #$%#ing bullshitters, wheres the proof? Why arent your cars up in number one place? Ill tell you why, because they dont belong there!
    If you liked cars seriously, you would be showing some appreciation towards this excellent piece of engineering!

  13. Re: Why bag this acievement?

    theres alot of reasons to bag this.
    880hp is small fry. there are hundreds, neigh thousands of toyota supras and skylines 800-1000hp, that every weekend in tokoyo do 350kph 220mph + runs.
    ....250mph and 880 for $400,000 ....? what a pointless exercise!
    I have a 550hp car for $12,000.......<!-- Signature -->
     
  14. Re: Why bag this acievement?

    tons of companies liek ferrari, lambo's, porsche, and mercedes could make a really #$%#ing fast car but what's the point! you can add twin turbo's to a mclaren F1 and you can beat this thing by a mile and aslo there are most important things to car then top speed! top speed means nothing to good german or itialian engineers!
    that's why so many of their cars are built for great handling performance and acceleration! also there is only one of these cars anyways so it doesn't really count as a real production car! also you'd have to be a retard to say that italian cars suck ass! if a person had 400,000 thousand and they ahd a choice between a ferrari F50 and this car, what car would he choose! given that he knows that this car goes like 40 miles per hour faster but has worst acceleration! umm correct em if i'm wrong but he'd deffinatly choose the F50! first of all cuase it's a ferrari and second of all you can show it off adn people realize that the ferrari is better! which in fact it is in a real race track becuase this car is only good becuase of it's top speed! any company could make a real good car that goes 150 miles and hour but it's just useless! also the ferrari F50 has better handlign since it has F1 technology cuase that's what the car was absed on, an F1 car! <!-- Signature -->

Why? because thats not enough to boy a F-50 which goes for over $500,000 and if the F-50 is based on F1 cars they must be over rated as well the F-50 was claimed by ferrari to pull 1.25gon the skidpad but it can only do .95 and as for the sledge not handling well it doesn't have the stock suspension settingsit has a racing suspension that was setup by the same guy who setup the old Ford GT-40's that were also ferrari killersthis car is incrediblywell built and planned by the automotive genious reeves callaway. so back off and stop bothering us.
     
  16. Re: Why bag this acievement?

    in answer to the threads question, People bag this achievement because they just don't like the car and/or the country it comes from, if this car had Formula 1 handling and acceleration as well as it's top speed, people will still find a way to diss it, they will use the the old "man this car is ugly" excuse.

    Or you get the good old "my methanol-powered *insert name here* on slicks with an engine tuned so high I need to rebuild it every 440 yards would thrash this car!"

    go to the forums for the other cars with awesome top speed and great acceleration and you will find a similar theme.
     
  17. Re: Why bag this acievement?

    I think the ignorent people that want to bash this car by comparing it with non-street legal cars, also fail to remmber that this car was made back in 1988, should I repeat that 1988!!!
    Actually made in 1987......

    But back then this cars acceleration and handling was pretty damn good, like it's acceleration matches some of the better stock sports cars today!
    The fact it still holds the record for highest top speed makes this car deserve a lot of respect.

    Remmber people this car was made back in 1988, I think all its states ARE PRETTY DAMNG GOOD FOR ITS TIME!
     
  18. Re: Why bag this acievement?

    exactly, what other 1988 cars could beat this round a track.

  20. Re: Why bag this acievement?

    ok fine, you guys are saying abunch of shit which isn't even true but anyways... can someone please explain me the point of spending hundreds of thousands of dollars to produce a car that can't handle turns well and has bad acceleration, becuase if you put an italian car, say a ferrari and put 880 hp in, you would end up with a monster! and there is proof of that! Koenig tuned an F50, with twin turbo's like this car has and only 830 hp! and they ended up with a car that does 0-60 in 3.0 seconds using street legal tires and ended up having a 1/4 mile time of 8.0 seconds flat. and that was also using street legal tires... they weren't using slicks! also i thought all american cars car about is acceleration and 1/4 mile times... well they seem to suck at it becuase well this car has 880 hp and only does the 1/4 mile in 10.6 seconds or somehting like that! so tell me what is the point of this car! to waste money by never making it go into production! I would really like to know! and plus we bag this car cuase some morons keep on saying that worthless cars like these blow away all "shitty" itialian cars! well show me a car that uses streel legal tires and does the quarter mile in 8 seconds on only a 4.7 litre engine! getting 176 hp per litre! so far the only american cars the have pretty good power and 1/4 miles times are the 8 litre monster engines like the hennessy viper 800TT! so don't show me cars like the vipers cuase they can't handle for shit, if you any of you guys ever watch lemans you would know what i'm talking about!

    oh and by the way that stuff about the skidpad shit that stuff does not mean shit around a race track! we all know an F50 could waste this car! and also i'd like to see an american car company make an F1 car! hahaha you'll need lots of luck for that!

    and i have one more thing reek said some shit about having a methanol powered car who's engine has to be replaced every 440 yards which runs on slicks! wtf dude are you making yourself look like a moron! american cars are the king of doing that! all of their so called awesome acceleration cars that do 0-60 in 3 or below seconds all run on slicks pretty much like the hennessy viper 800TT! talk about tuning the engine what about this corvette... it was tuned like crazy to achieve that speed and also all of those vipers and mustangs and all of those american cars... they all need their engines tuned so #$%#ign high to get a good car! however if you buy like a porsche or some euro car, you already got a masterpiece which doesn't need and nitro, or slicks and all that shit that creates a powerful car! So shutup about us being the guys who say this car is ugly and shit, i've been to porsche, lambourghini's and ferrari forums and saw the exact same thing saying that this car is ugly shit and that my trans-am can beat it! hahaha you make me laugh! so that's what i gotta say for now and i'm tired from typing all this shit<!-- Signature -->

  22. Re: Why bag this acievement?

    Oh for got sakes MCLAREN99 shut up!

    You defnitly do not know anything, you insist on comparing European exotics to older American cars, or non-exotic American cars. I'm so sick and tierd of listening to you, and reading what you write is very annoying since you make the dumbest mistakes, like you're made up word "costomable" that you wrote in Saleen forum.

    And I'm going to say this again to anyone else who wants to bag this car. IT WAS MADE IN 1988! How many cars had these kinda of numbers back in 1988, this kinda of performance was considered amazing back then, and today it's amazing because it still has the highest top speed.

    And if you guys TRULY BELIEVE THIS CAR HAS BAD HANDLING I WANT YOU TO PROVE IT.
    Corvettes have always been known for great handling, thats why on the track they have beaten many cars that are four times the price such as the Ferrari 360 Modena, and before MCLAREN99 you come in with you're stupid stats, look at some actual races the Corvette has beaten the Ferrari!

    And once again for a car made back in 1988....
    This car does have great acceleration
    Great handling
    And ofcourse great top speed!

    I only wish that Callaway would consider trying this with the new Corvettes, just imagine what could be achieved.
     
  23. Re: Why bag this acievement?

    why don't you prove me that this car has great handling! the old corvette's didn't have the good handling that they do now! i got that of a test driver of motor trend! so shutup! and i got the point that this car was made in 1988... how many times do you have to say that!

    Mclaren99

    when I said "my methanol-powered *insert name here* on slicks with an engine tuned so high I have to replace it every 440 yards would thrash this car" I was being sarcastic. I do not own a drag car, and while I appreciate there is an art to drag-racing, I much prefer auto-racing on tracks (not ovals).

    I was merely making a point that no matter how good the car is, there is always someone who is convinced that their own personal car is better.

    I could crap on about how a 1982 Ford Laser 1.3 4 speed is better (because of cost and fuel economy) but that is a pointless exercise.
     
  25. Re: Why bag this acievement?

    How can you say that skidpad isn't important, you can't make fast corners if your skidpad sucks. BTW - I hear this car pulls 1.1 G's

    If you wanna compare 800 HP cars, compare them from the same year.

    I'd like to see some of those F1 guys try cart regulations.
