This is the thread by Congaman. I believe he posted here last year, showing a 206 mph top speed run using GPS.

This year he entered his Z06 in the "Shootout on the Airstrip in Sweden- Z06 Vs the World" and layed waste to some of the World's most expensive and exotic sports cars.

BMW Kellners M6 Altered:

In his own words:


Z06 Vs. SLR; Before this race the SLR had slaughtered all it's competition including an SL65.....So I was pretty sure the same would happen to me....But no....to my big surprise the Z06 was faster than the SLR up to 250/260 km when I had to go into 5th gear.......And missed......so I lost the race....but only the last 100 meters or so due to my own fault....

Kelllners M6: This M6 is tuned to 570 Hp by Kellners in Germany. The driver was an American living in Germany calling himself Ruzzrams on the Internet. This M6 is really fast and has a very loud and raw sound...In the first race against the M6 I did the same driver error as above so we decided to go for a rerun.....In the rerun I drove almost perfect except for hitting the rev limiter once which actually didn't matter much....I managed to win over the M6.....But I could notice how he gained on me as I went into 5th gear........had we gone further and in higher speeds I think he would be faster than the Z06.

Porsche GT2: Almost the same race as against the Kellners M6. I was clearly faster than the GT2 until 5th gear and I did beat him. But as I went into 5th he started to gain on me. When the new GT2 comes I think it will be a very tough competitor for the Z06.


Porsche Carrera GT: This car sounds and looks fantastic! I thought it would be unbeatable for the Z06.....but not really as it would show....The Z06 was faster up to +200 km/h when the CGT driver missed a gear and fell back......so with that the race was over.....But I have to admit that I was really amazed by the fact that the Z06 could take this car....sure.....had we gone for a full race and/or +300 km/h I'm sure he would have beaten me without any problems.....but still....up to +200 km/h...the Z06 with only KB and tune was able to outrun this amazing $400.000 car......

Congaman believes that all these cars would have passed him in fifth given enough time. Maybe, but the Z06 has a top speed over well over 200 mph with our Killer Bee AAIS Package onboard.

Congratulations to Congaman from Sweden, who represented the USA's best sports car ever made.

Awesome Jim!
Two thousand hits since yesterday. The whole world has dropped their jaw. Imagine if Congaman had a paddle shifter.

Now visualize the new Corvette SS with 685 HP and a top speed of 217 mph.

Can't wait.

Jim

Hi, Congaman here.....

First let me tell you all what great products the Halltech Stage 1 and the KillerBee are.....Also Jim really proved that he is a real car enthusiast as I e-mailed him just a few days before the race and he did everything he could to get the product delivered to me here in Sweden in time for the race......and he managed it!!! Best costumer service ever....

With the Halltech stage 1 the car is AND feels a lot stronger and quicker....also the throttle response is much quicker......and the sound from the exhausts are now so violent that I don't think I'll ever have to buy aftermarket exhausts or headers.......

Jim already posted my results......if I hadn't goofed up with the misshifts this could have been a truly great day......I love this car and even more so after installing Jim's products!!!
