Guys with the A6 are running anywhere between 13`s - 12.2`s stock. You made the right choice:thumbsup: Don`t read into the numbers.

My 6-speed manual '07 C6 convertible runs pretty consistant 12.5's at 115 mph. That's bone stock on street tires, and I'm no Don Garlits, just a 53-year-old ex-street racer.. Compare those numbers to the real-world numbers of anything else, and then smile, as I do. Just practice a little on getting it hooked up off the line (your automatic may be easier) and you'll be all set. Go get 'em.

P.S. - anyone who just bought a new Corvette is not allowed to be pissed. Ever. Go, live, enjoy and be happy. You have just purchased the best value for the dollar in the performance car world. Spend some time getting to know your car and getting the most out of it. Spend a little on aftermarket goodies to make it faster if you feel you must (intake & exhaust is a good place to start), but don't think you have to. You don't. It's already a great car.

Drivetrain loss tends to be greater on the torque convertor automatics but the speed and efficiency of the transmission logic makes up for it.

The consistancy is also amazing as hell.

Enjoy your new A6 and be aware you'll never get the dreaded clutch pedal sticking to the floor that maybe 10% of the manuals have over the life of the vehicle.

I only wish I could drop a C6 A6 into my Z..

That would be cool as hell.

Have fun

Don't get too caught up on the dyno numbers..They vary from different dyno's..These cars are fast vert & coupe.. You made the right decision..:cheers:

I run 12.1 @ 122 mph. A6 in s mode. let the car do the shifting and the F55 suspension set to tour (plants better) Traction control in comp. K&N Filters (stock airbox) and a corsa exaust. Tuned with a diablo predator.

Was running [email protected] 115mph bone stock.

I am going to throw the stock tune back in to see the difference the exaust and filters made without the tune and repost my #'s.

I wish I could get rid of the TM and have some real fun with the A6

Break the motor in hard, vary the rpm and load a lot, the car will thank you in a few thousand miles.

You also need to remember that the driver can make a huge difference in drag strip times. As an example, I once sold a car to a guy, and I told him that it ran mid 13’s totally stock, but since it now had a few performance modifications it was quite a bit quicker. I also told him that I hadn’t actually ran it at the strip since the mods were done but I would expect it to now run low 13’s or better. The next week he took it to the strip and couldn’t do better than mid to low 14’s, and he accused me of lying to him. So the following week I went with him to the drags. His first run was again in the low 14’s. I drove it next and it ran a 13.21 with no changes other than the driver. That night I got it into the high 12’s and he still could never break the 14’s. There was over a full second difference just with the driver, so I’m sure some of these slower Vette times are also due to the drivers.

60' 2.04s
330' 5.36s
1/8 8.008s @ 95.53mph
1000' 10.24s
1/4 12.21 @122mph
0-60mph 4.08s

I have attached the G-tech file from this run. Rename it from .doc to .gtp ext to view it with the PASS software.

I was set for a 12" rollout which probably gave me 3-4mph on top.

The Clock doesn't start till after the 12" rollout., so it helps by already being in motion for that 1 foot. Not really that different from the strip.

Like at the strip you can stage light or you can stage deep. 12" roll out is staging light I think.

Staging deep is sometimes faster in the ET but usually lowers mph, unless I have the terms reversed?

thats a q tech. we want to see a real track timeslip that mph is not possible with your mods
look at this is a real slip
60 ft 1.677
330 4.809
1/8 7.426
mph 93.27

yo bro I knew he wasn't reporting track data! 122 trap lol!! not w/those mods Gtech is a joke! sorry if I offended the OP but the trap is so outta wack like 7mph faster than any A6 timeslip I've ever seen! have you gotten any more mods? better times? I recently got 3.90 gears & full dyno tune, w/my A4 tranny it hauls azz now, next is Stall converter what would you recomend? I don't want it sluggish around town at all, and will I feel a perf difference in highway rolls? what is your rpm rev limitter set at w/Cartek tune? mines 6900 thank you for your time...:thumbsup:

:agree: There are some many ways that the you could have messed up on adj that thing. Take it to the track and post some real times for us. And you will see that you will never trap 119 mph without a cam:thumbsup:

Here are three of my time slips, number 76. The other car was a C6 Z51 with Vararam and a Tune and those are his times.:thumbsup:

Dude, I don’t need a cash register receipt to tell me how fast the car runs., I trust the #’s on the Gtech, Magazines trust the #’s on the Gtech, and every test I have seen says the thing is accurate. The #’s you posted are nice. It shows a car great out of the hole but looses a little steam on top. If you’re in your 05 with an A4 there is different gearing going on.
Most guys with an A6 or M6 are running about the same MPH you are but are in the mid to low 12’s

Final Drive Ratio

A4 with 2.73 Rear ( I think the A4 has a 2.73 rear, not 100% sure)

1st 8.35
2nd 4.4
3rd 2.73
4th 1.91

A6 with 2.56 Rear

1st 10.29
2nd 6.04
3rd 3.89
4th 2.94
5th 2.17
6th 1.68

M6 with 3.42 Rear

1st 10.15
2nd 7.07
3rd 4.8
4th 3.42
5th 2.42
6th 1.94

Gearing has a lot to do with ET and MPH in the ¼.

Next time I get to the track I’ll post a slip. Probably won’t get there till Aug 4th for the East Coast Corvette Challenge.

How do I put a pic in the post instead of as an attachment?

DUDE,
I don`t want to have to cut you down,because were all here for the same thing,and thats the love of Corvette`s,but you should do some research first before you post, You have to no that the fastest bolt trapped 117 not 119 and i think that your GTech needs some calibration work done to it. I have the Gtech Pro RR and i know what you have to do to get it setup right. And by the way the A6`s are faster than the A4`s by a Car Length at the track STOCK. Oh and you might want to look at the gears again....If you want to REALLY KNOW want your car does, take it to the track and get one of those Cash Register Receipts:D . And when you do, don`t hide it,because your Gtech was off, Show it.:thumbsup:

Someone needs to do more research before they spew....A4 comes in the base package w/2.73's optional or Z51 package A4 get 3.15 gears also you're dreaming thinking 122 trap is possible w/your mods:rolling: best I've seen is 115-116 w/your mods, your claim of 122 is :rolling: :laughing: :crazy: :lookinup: :thud: :spanked: :devil: :smack :WTF :buhbye: :nuts: impossible, you'd need 470+ crank hp to trap that high, plain and simple math, your arrogance w/Gtech is laughable!!!:down:

The guy in question Dennis, is running 11.60's w/A4 3.15 gears w/117 traps, DREAM ON GTECH is not nearly as precise as the real 1/4 mile, also very EZ to mess up calibration w/incorrect vehicle weight, etc.. obviously what you've done to achieve a 122 trap BS:smack :spanked: :crazy: :rolling:
