Corvette verses GT-R

The GT500 would get destroyed.

Why do you think that? I feel that the GT500 would spar well with both of them.

Gt500 is a straight line car. The 350 is more circuit based

I will say your somewhat right but I also think it's who's driving the car that makes the biggest impact.

I had a old school dirt track racer take me up and down some mountain back roads so fast in high powered V8's or under powered I4's. I'm a decent driver but this man was phenomenal he was a drivers driver.

That dirt track racing makes you a good driver real quick I am sure

That's interesting. That new Z06 /Z07 is not performing to where it should be. It's less than 3 seconds a lap faster on the same track with the same driver as the Z/28 (1:27.10 Z06 vs 1:29.72 Z/28).

Also, looking through it's straight line speed I can tell you positively, that car likely does not have 650 hp at the crank or GM has retarded aero that does not work. Randy Pobst mentions that in the article, "It felt faster [than the lap time], but it also didn't feel like it had 650 horsepower," Randy said. "Just not as fast as I expected."

Seeing as how under-performing the new Z06 has been from an engine standpoint, my guess is that this car either suffered horribly from heat soak or something in the factory tune caused the engine to make about 100 hp less than it should have.

Either way, both cars are seriously fast but I imagine with a healthy Z06/Z07, that the GT-R would likely have lost by 1-1.5 seconds.

I say give Chevy a year or two to work out all the unseen flaws in the Z06 and then retest it. It's a brand new high performance corvette with a new engine in it. The engine hasn't been out for a while so they haven't been able to perfect it like the pervious LS platforms....
Might be a different story...

As for the GTR, it's fast that's all I'm saying...


Another month ends. All targets met. All systems working. All customers satisfied. All staff eagerly enthusiastic. All pigs fed and ready to fly.

The gearing of the new transmission is what screws the new z06, it does not perform anywhere near what o was expecting

Hey Chevy decided not to supply the auto for some reason. So they ended up getting into a dog fight with a three legged dog. Or at least a dog with a broken paw. Lol

OP- GT500 is out of its element compared to these cars. I assume Chevy will sort out new vette issues in short order, whether it is programming/cooling issue. If not, the owners will all be pissed like in the late 1990s with the 99 Cobra issues.
