Goes to shows Vettes aren't all that fast! The LS motors are really strong up top but last time I checked our tracks are 1320 feet in length. I was on my 20" Nitto DR's and later ran a 12.68 with no cool down.

Nice kill, must feel good to beat down a car that most people would never guess you could beat even with mods. But C6s are not slow. I have seen with my own eyes stock 6SPD C6s run 12.20s@115 in showroom condition.

I don't know if I can call that a beat down. I mean, if he had recorded the video from the bottom of the track then it would be a more accurate documentation.

Nice!! I have beat one also. It can be done when they dont hook well. As always, the driver makes a huge difference.
You are almost as fast as my RT now. I better get to wrenching...lol.

Looks like a good kill. I love our cars. I have a friend that has a 2007, Z-06 I hope to beat with mine (2008 Challenger PPP 426 XC) . I hope to out run him in the 1/4 and the mile. Hope to find out this spring if we get some good weather out here.

03-22-2010, 07:25 PM

thats what am saying cant be a Zo6 my buddy has a c5 Zo6 that i have seen him beat a srt8 and my r/t the are just fast

Yeah I was half kidding on the spanking part. My buddy did a horrible job recording, in one video he was talking to his damn girlfriend. It was a 6 speed C6 Vette, I still have the timeslip from the race. Usually once a Vette gets on your ass you're done, they pull really hard. The guy asked me if I had a blower.. Lol
he pulled the old well I just came in on street tires to see what it would do. Apparently it didn't do what he expected it to do. Vette's are badass and require a good driver to launch them when equipped with a manual.
