here is the link http://www.motortrend.com/av/112_0606_sf_2006_chevrolet_corvette_z06_video/ :partyon:
but how is that possible
i timed him and he disappointed me i mean he did :
0-60 in 4.6 gm says it will do it in 3.7
0-100 in 9.8 gm says it will do it in 7.9
0-125 in 13.9 gm says it wiil do it in 11.5
its still fast but not as fast as i thought it would be .
but myabe because the A/C is on and the passenger it may have been a bit slower and he didn't change to sixth gear :huh:

They just wanted to see how fast it would go. Don't think they were too worried about 0-60 etc. and 6th gear is overdrive, the top speed is met at the top of 5th gear:cool:

Did anyone else have a problem? The commercial plays and then no movie :( :huh:

I got it to work with Quicktime but not Media Player. Weird, I have all updates.

Wow...that's f#cking fast! I wonder what would happen if you installed a CAI and headers? Seems like it slowed down a lot when it hit about 175

Watch the video again...they weren't going for time. You can tell this because right in the beginning, he doesn't open it up (floor it) until he's at about 10 mph. He lets the clutch out easy and then dips into it so as not to lose traction. The goal wasn't to see how fast they could get there...just to get there.
