Traction being equal the GT500 would have taken it very easy. However I really like the new Corevette, Chevy has really made the C7 Corvette so much better than the previous generation.

C7 stock 1/4 times are already within ~.2 sec of the the GT500. Given the massive power advantage, that's pretty pathetic. I know this will piss everyone off, but it's true.

just goes back to picking your battles.. if your high hp and are confident in getting off the line w/ your sticky tires and launch, thats one thing.. but if you have street tires your high hp car is going to be faster from a roll..its common sense.. in all fairness the auto c7 should have given the gt500 a roll race from 40 as well.

DR will definitely help, but then you are no longer stock, and kill the other performance areas of the car in return.
As I stated, the best 1/4 time stock for both cars are within ~.2 seconds. Traps are obviously significantly different, but that means zip at the 1/4. That should tell you which one makes the most use of what it has.

Just because a car has more power does not always mean it is quicker. There is this little thing called weight difference. I don't know the exact number but how much heavier is GT500 vs the C7? Not to mention I don't care what kind of car or how good the driver is. Eventually there will someone with a faster car or better driver. Either way both are bad ass cars.2014 GT Vert(My new toy)JLT CAI, more to come!

I sure as hell would hope the new Z07 would beat the Shelby so your argument is invalid. When the Camaro starts beating the mustang then you chevy boys can talk shit.

This has been happening with automatic vs. manual high powered RWD cars on the street since the dawn of time. It happens within the same platform. An automatic GT500 would just flatout rape a 6spd GT500 in a race like this, it wouldn't even be a question. Within the same platform automatics hold all the records, and not by a tenth or two, but by a second or two, usually with less tire.
All that being said, it doesn't matter if it has 800hp more, the car was designed to hit a certain benchmark considering it's size, market, weight and layout. It's a ****ing 3900lb+ boulevard cruiser meant to appease pony car enthusiasts. Is it slower than a fiberglass purpose built sports car when you start doing hp ricer calculations? Yes.
