LMAO nice job... got caught up by the moment and missed your exit eh.. hehe sounded like lots of fun
Plenty of times and believe it or not they're not consider equals UNLESS they're heavily modified..Wow, neck and neck, thats awesome! Nice run!
Thats funny about the WRX STI, I ran one the other day Have you run one by itself before?
I noticed that as well when I ran him. It was the first time I had run a stock STI and it was funPlenty of times and believe it or not they're not consider equals UNLESS they're heavily modified..
Mike, I can't imagine what the Z06 or the ZR1 would be like racing against..
Honestly I'm not sure If the Guy in the Vette was trying or he just wanted to see what the F hype is and was testing me or maybe..hm..Fun time either way!!
Honestly unless it's 06 Vettes or higher the 05's or lower vettes, F drivers can take them down unless it's ZR1 or Z06 or heavily modified..I noticed that as well when I ran him. It was the first time I had run a stock STI and it was fun
I would love to run either a Z06 or ZR1! If you run one, let us know! If I run one, I'll definitely let you know! I've run normal vettes but no ZR1's or Z06's
i'm not meaning to bust any chops but LTx motors haven't been put into vettes since the c4 body in the mid 90s. as for how the isf would hold up against corvettes i would put them as follows;Just an hr ago I went to put some gas in the car and then I went to take the highway to get back home, all of sudden I see this car going frighteningly fast! To my surprise it's its Vette LT1..At least 2006 model due to the back exhaust!
Anyhow we were racing to see at least for me I wanted to see how much can the F hold it's ground on the Vette..Amazingly it did well! We were going neck and neck! Although I think the LT1 is faster due to Higher intake of 6.0 or 6.2 with more torque and slightly lighter car or about same weight ratio almost..
Eventually the driver had to get off his exit so I ended up looping around to get back to my exit..Here's little twist! Someone in a Wrx Sti attempted to catch up with us but NO GO!!
Believe me I can't imagine how much faster Z06 is then, according most Magazines ZR1 is the current King so it's VERY SCARY!!i raced a z06 , and beleive me , it was a pleasant site. the vette pulled away from the F very hard. but u are talking about 505hp and a lighter car. Z06 ,for the price is a sick car. and the power u get .
Dude, I'm not gonna disagree with you as I was merely mentioning the Intake on the vettes and the Torque on these cars are insane..The person that was driving was keeping me up with me like nothing..If anything we actually were taking turns back and back forth flying by each other..i'm not meaning to bust any chops but LTx motors haven't been put into vettes since the c4 body in the mid 90s. as for how the isf would hold up against corvettes i would put them as follows;
c4, c5, 01 z06, 05-07 c6, isf, 08+ c6, 02-04 z06, 06+ z06, 09+ zr1
if you were neck and neck its likely an 05-07 or if he was pullin on you a slight amount it was probably an 08.
no chance in hell against a new z06 or zr1
that is if you think it was a c6 bodystyle (ie. the current model)
The Z06 is Ghost Train so ZR1 is a Bolt of Lighting!Wow, I missed a lot since last night! I hope no one read what I had posted out of context. With that said, the F wouldn't be able to pull on any Z06 except the later models. The ZR1 is an insane car and the F doesn't stand a chance. I would still like to run against them just for fun, although I would get spanked, it would be fun to see all that power at work
Back to the original poster, A03, nice run last night
To me and to anyone that owns a F likely they know it's pure combination of speed and luxury where the Vette is a 110% pure race horse..with everything said i'd still rather have an ISF over any vette except the zr1.
I figured that as much..This guy wasn't seem like he was trying or didn't know how to drive the car at all..We kept on going back on forth..i have both. and yes, the last lt1 was in 95/96. there was a lt4 in 96 for certain models. vettes since then have used the ls1, ls2, and ls3. z06s have used ls6 and ls7. zr1 is ls9. if someone in a new vette can't outrun you then they aren't trying. more hp, more tq, and substantially less weight. any c6 would take an is f and the z06 and zr1 are obviously not even worth comparing. my z06 is stock at the moment and it still a very quick car. my last z06 (03) was supercharged putting down 580rwhp and it didn't feel much quicker than my current bone stock c6 z06. i plan on doing head/cam work in a few months which will put me around 550+rwhp
