    Well for starters the base/z51 C8 is running 11.2 but as far as handling, I dont think so, tire is far superior on the shelbro

    True. It’s a pretty educated assumption. Almost common sense.

    Care to make a wager of this? Put money on it? C8 will own the 350 cars (to include the R).

    I think the 20 350R will hang with the c8/z51. Of course if they were on the same tire the c8 would be on top.

    Both are about 3600lbs and 500hp.

    I do agree the C8 will be a performer. So I agree with the common sense in that regard. The difference is I don't like to talk out the side of my face until I know some FACTS or can prove what I say. We won't know until solid numbers are out. Until then I don't state things as facts

    Agreed but he’s not talking Drag he’s talking road course. And their fast on that type of track. I’ll agree it’s Probably will close there.

    Exactly, I have said this all along, once past a certain point the GT500 is just going to pull away its common sense. 60mph to however far is the next turn after your initial straight? The Gt500, once out in front on a road course, will maintain it.

    Then I would suggest that you don’t hang out on this forum, which happens to be full of “talk out the side of face”.

    I am willing to put my money where my mouth is, where is your money at?

    That depends on the track and what corner, the corvette will exit better on slow corners which some tracks have lots of. The non cftp car is going to have a shit of a time working until owners put those cftp spec cup 2's on them.

    I will be watching to see how well they get cooling down in these. Especially the Zs whenever they come out.

    It will have it beat in oil consumption. Negative on all the others, ghostrider.

    Right, a track with little to no decent straights, then the outcome becomes interesting to see that is for sure.

    Who said this was only for the 1/4?
    I'm not here to get in an argument. I agreed with you that the C8 will perform. It just might out perform the GT350R. I'm not 100% sure that it will. I can't say it will until we get some solid numbers. You said it will and I wanted proof.

    11.2 in the 1/4 compared to what in the R? 12s? As far as the road coarse, the Vette is quicker to 60 out of the turns and with rear engine Vette is going to handle amazing. Cant see any comparison here on any track, straight or curvy.

    Youd be correct if they were on the same tire. That is why the 350R will still be hard to beat

    Nope, wrong.

    Although the R has the tire advantage. The c8 has a DCT, mid engine layout, better acceleration, lower weight and less drag.

    I can say it will. You don’t need proof for an educated opinion.

    I didn’t need proof to know the 13/14 GT500 was going to destroy all previous mustangs before it. I don’t need proof to opine that the C8 will out perform the 350 cars.

    Uhhhh, no.... A tire is the reason the mclaren 570s is only 1.5-1.7 seconds faster than a 350R . The C8 z51 will be right along track with the 350R and the base 500's. None of them will destroy eachother, some may come out on top some places while not at others. The CFTP will be eating all of the above everywhere until the C8 GS comes out.

    Tire is definitely a huge advantage for the R, no doubt.

    I am eagerly awaiting the first c8 and 350 lap times comparo.
