Can't wait until they test the 2008 LS3 w/baffled exhaust. Do you think they could shave a second or two off the base vettes time?

That was a great read man, thanks:thumbsup: It looks like the Z51 was only 5 seconds behind the Z06. I know that's a lot, but still respectable. It was outpacing some of the high end cars as well.

And the verdict is "the Chevy can embarrass almost any other car on the track"

Pretty slow times overall. I know lots of guys running 2:18's to 2:15's at VIR with C5 Z06's. Tires make a lot of difference but still, I ran under 3 minutes my first time there.

Yeah i read that in my Car and Driver. The Z06 blew everyone away with the fastest lap time for all LL classes.

Which course at VIR are you talking about when you say they were running 2:15's?

I wonder how quicker the C6Z51 would be without the runcraps? I bet they hold it back. As far as the temps go for the GT500, heatsoak used to kill my 03 Cobra. Once it got hot, times (for me, the 1/4 mile) would just plummet.

my thoughts we're....wow, only 2 seconds behind a GT3 on sticky tires. I think that given equal rubber the Z51 would beat the GT3s time.

I agree! I use to own a KB Cobra and the temps would rise in the heat or after repeated runs.
