I'm not trolling. But some of you guys keep harping on how much power the car makes...that doesnt make it fast. Thats my only point.

Trying to keep ya'll grounded in reality

I see a Cobra.

Tell you what, for the $40k+ price tag diff, I'm ok with the ZR1 barely walking away in a straight line...

Seems fair to me. No knock against the ZR1 either... but I'm happy to be considered against one in completely stock form given the price differences.

For 30K less than what you paid I'd be happy with my used Z06 slightly walking away from you.....

I do not share your opinion but hey that's life. I had zero complaints with my C6 other than the nav blew hard but it was from 2007. I will own a Z06 at some point but it just isn't in the cards for a while.

i remember that @dun4791 and someone else from this board ran their C6Z against a stock '13 GT500. Sounded like close races, but the GT500 was able to hold it off by a car or so to 170-180mph each time, even when they switched drivers.
Would love to own either one some day.

I swing hard off of Z06's since driving @redevo's bolt on car and when @Slolane made me look stupid with his Dad's stock 06 on 90.

Probably the best all-around car you can get for ~$40-45k right now. (08+)

Just think for $80k cheaper than a ZR1 or $40k cheaper than the 500, I could have bought a turbo trans am that walked away from both in a straight line?

Have they put a real set of brakes on this thing yet? Or does it still take over 100 feet to stop from 60?

Not trying to bash. Its road course times would vastly improve with a decent set of brakes.

15" 6 piston rotor brembo brakes up front. Replaced the 4 piston 14" rotor combo the 2007-2012 had. The pad surface is WAY bigger with the 6 piston set up.

Fucking finally. I'm glad Ford finally got on the big brake bandwagon. They help sooooo much.
