Infact there has been alot of threads on other sites in whcih I have learned and gotten questions asnwered. The good thing about a healthy debate is many people can get their question answered without even asking it. IM sure that a few people on this forum was looking in on this debate that got out of hand.

David just seem intent on proving his point in which he actually had near no one to back him. In fact many of his info for trying to prove his point only further disproved it. But thats besides the point a healthy debate will only help those with questions.
Yes, I agree. There is a wealth of information to be mined on Internet fora. Unfortunately you must wade through an endless list of message that contain nothing, or less than nothing.

As to David: Poly4 bitch-slapped me and I'm fine now. That song "I'd Like To Buy The World a Coke and Keep In Harmony" was running around in my head when he hit me and brought me out of it. No David. No Whiners.

Doc, you will be the moderator. Poly4 will post the first message. Then we'll await the literati among the Corvette tifosi and have us a discussion.

We pledge our Lives, our Fortunes (less the Corvettes) and our Sacred Honor to this task.

If you are in, I'm in. Which exit is Valley Forge off the Pennsylvania Turnpike?

And, especially if the discussion is giving you a brain cramp, why are you bothering to follow it? And I do not mean that in a flip way either.

I have continued to follow because the thread did not start out as a scientific discussion of horsepower vs. torque vs. whatever. It was a discussion about the new Z06 and speculation about some pictures that had been posted. I continue to check in, just in case there is any further discussion along those lines. I'm not trying to be critical; as I said, you guys seem to be having a fairly good discussion and that is your privilege. Actually, I was just trying to inject a little bit of humor into a discussion that had become a tad bit vitriolic. No offense intended.

I wonder if Patrick can move all the posts that have nothing to do with the original topic to a separate thread.

Options? I doubt it..... I bet they sell the car just like they did the ZR-1... Very well equipped with no options. What you see is what you get, and I LIKE what I see. I am going to the L.A. show to see it in person.

I don't know about that twin turbo in Viper. I am a factory trained Viper technician and don't see that happening. it's already $89,000. Isn't there a chart on this website boasting the Z07 times better than Ford GT, Ferrari 430,and Viper ?

After some thought he picked three of Maxwell's four equations. When he got test back they were all marked wrong. The instructor wanted V=IR, I=V/R, and R=V/I.

After some discussion, the engineer derivied V=IR from Maxwell's equations for the instructor and was given 1/3rd credit.
Just in case anyone has read this, I want to clear up what this person wrote. The story is humorous in that the instructor should've been scolded for those equations. V=IR is one equation. The other two ways of writing it, I=V/R and R=V/I, mean the same thing: Voltage is proportional to Current; this is called Ohm's Law. All those equations mean the same thing and therefore only one of them is necessary in the answer.

This and many more things will be pondered while this thread is closed.
