    it doesnt matter you let out at 120. He caught up to you very quickly and blew by you. That is enough to show you who is the boss.

    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.

    Since it looked to take about ~12.5 seconds to run down the vette, determining who is the 'boss' isn't so clear cut. IMO, that's pretty poor for a car with 200 more hp.

    Um considering whoever was driving the GT500 couldn't launch worth a shit I'm pretty sure it would take less time than that.

    Edit: And you obviously didn't see that the C7 is an auto.

    The 13-14 GT500 is faster in a straight line stock for stock than a C7. PERIOD. Let not start a pissing match over something we all know is true.

    Holy shit the guy simply had traction problems and still took down a car that had a few cars head start on him with ease. If that doesn't prove who has the bigger balls, then I don't know what else.

    Plus this is one race with one driver. This in noway a consistent result between the two.

    If you build a car with so much power, it can't lay it down effectively without VHT, who's fault is that?

    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.

    I agree.

    Automatic vs. 6spd.

    I've seen 6spd Vipers turn mid 11s @ 130mph+

    automatic fbodys, mid 11s @ 115mph'

    Race on the street? ha, it would have looked just like this race. Automatic FTW.

    no need for vht. Simple drag radials is good enough.

    Your post proves you have no idea about racing. A car that pulled up to another car that quick and passed it that quick isn't .2 seconds quicker. Why don't you tell me what these two cars run best on a 1/4 mile?

    +1

    C7's are cutting 1.7 60ft times on stock tires while gt500's cut 2.3 60ft times, that's not the vettes fault.

    If it drizzles (called rain by Californians) more than 10 days out of the entire calendar year in SoCal, I start complaining about it being an El Nino year! LOL

    Yes, I have become accustomed and spoiled by the near year round perfect weather. Hope the rain clears soon for you on the East Coast.

    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.

    Who cares about 1/4 mile? Roll racing is the new thing man. And most Vettes do that rather than the track.

    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.

    Considering the Vette and the Mustang were never meant to compete with each other I'd say the Shelby is doing a pretty damn good job of pissing off the Chevy fanboys.

    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.

    A base auto C7 would likely run the same ET as a $100k+ Viper all day long. Hell, it would probably run the same ET as a C6Z 99.999% of the time if they stopped in the middle of the street and raced from a dig.

    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.
