Default Racing a c5 z06 tomorrow--Place your bets

***EDIT: VIDEO ON PAGE 3!***

Since 3si has endless who would win threads with nearly all of them just being hype theads, I'm going to deliver just like I did last week.

Link Here: 3000GT VR-4 vs. 2005 Corvette 6 Speed--Video inside


I'm lining up with a c5 z06 2004(405 hp) <3100lbs tomorrow night. Mostly stock with an intake and clutch I believe. These are 117mph cars stock in the 1/4 mile. They move out pretty well.

My car is making 420whp at 16psi(hoping to get it to 18-19psi by tomorrow night) so figure 450? I think I should be in the 117mph ballpark, but no way to know for sure. I know AdamVR4 has the pumpgas record for 16g's qtr mile trap at 125.Xmph...I'll be happy if I can get 120-121 out of it and keep up with similarly powered cars...albeit with more boost..maybe 20psi on pump gas I'm thinking..

Were going from a 35 roll 2nd gear and a 3rd gear 50-55mph roll. No dig runs cause he already has a hard time hooking from a roll.

Place your guesses and by saturday night I should have a nice edited video of my VR-4 vs the z06...just in time for the weekend.

I think its going to be pretty close. If anything I say you edge him out by a nose. Depends what mph you guys stop.

The zo6 will slightly pull till you shift to third then you will pull him by half a car till bout 140, at which point the gap will hold.... Let me check my calculation again.... yeap, initial assessment is correct.

140? 3rd doesnt go that high. I know 5 speed is 120ish. But I agree your 3rd gear will be your saving grace.

I know, but like you said, the shift to third is where the action is. 3rd might be good for 115 on the 6 speed at the stock limiter. Will have to verify tomorrow.

Yeah I'll be surprised if you don't nose on him through 3rd and 4th. Should be a good race. I expect you would trap 118ish.

If you row the gears well enough, you should take him by a few cars. Make sure you brake boost that shiz!

If you lose, LS ftw
