Yeah, that one posted on the z board by Chris is one I have driven. I also drove Franks silver one. Neither were broken in when I drove them so I couldn't get a good feel for the power. They are both broken in now. :smooch:

Re: SRT-10 v. \'02 Z06

OK. The best Z06 driver in the World vs. a new owner of the SRT10. I can believe this being a close race. Honestly, though, the SRT10 has around 100 more RWHP peak, and more than that down low - with way more torque everywhere. With equally skilled drivers + seat time, it really shouldn't be a close race. I would guestimate around .5 - 1.0 seconds in the quarter. A 1 mile race being a LOT more.... Not real close IMHO. Not taking anything away from the Z06, as price DOES matter to me, and 'some' other Viper owners - believe it or not. It is, without a doubt, the best new car value in sports cars. Kick ass American muscle....

I highly doubt the SRT-10 would trail at any point during a race with a Z06 Vette, I just can't see it happening.

Re: SRT-10 v. \'02 Z06

OK let me get this straight . the gen 2 stock for stock embarrases the Z06. The gen 3 with 50 more ponies and a little better suspension runs neck and neck. Excuse me but my Bullshit detector has gone off. Get a life. The Z0g is a very nice daily driver but not close to a Srt or GenII for that matter in terms of acceleration. Fancy gears or not.I would bet most of our Gen 1 drive brothers would lay the smak down on that bowtie wearing candy ass. Maybe I am cranky from the cabin fever.

Re: SRT-10 v. \'02 Z06

DC:

I have both (Gen II and Z) and the GTS does not embarrass the Z by any means. Up to 100 mph they are neck and neck and after that the GTS steadily pulls away.

Sgt: it happened. even the SRT-10 owner admitted it. bottom line, the Z was driven by a guy who is a bad ass driver with tons of seat time in his car and the SRT-10 was driven by a "good" driver with little to no seat time in a brand new car. the driver is what made the difference. but really the SRT-10 is no different in terms of power as a GTS with smooth tubes, headers and full exhaust.

we all know the GTS and even moreso, the SRT-10 are faster than the Z. the point of this post was not to show that the Z is faster than the SRT-10, i just found it interesting to see how big of a difference the driver makes...

We can live on paper or we can live on the streets where anything goes and anything can happen. Its just an experience that Lawboy was sharing. Lets move on.
