C&D has an article "Z06 vs Viper" this month. They say the Viper is quicker by 0.1-0.2 and that the Z slides too easily. Why don't they ever mention the tires? Run-flats vs non run-flats is apples & oranges. I know they're compairing stock to stock but at least they could mention in the article that it's not a fair comparison. Put the same tires on the Z and see what happens.

Funny you mention losing the runcraps. I replaced the stock runcraps on my Viper (05) and my Z06 within days of buying the cars. The improvement is beyond description.

So I understand. What did you replace them with and do you reccommend them?
The Z06 has Michelin PS2's and the Viper Pirelli PZero's.

I like the tread life of the Michelin's over the Pirelli's, but both are great choices over the runcraps.
