2004 gto (a4) vs c6 corvette

Nothing to crazy driving down I-95 and every day i see this nice vette some kinda blue color so sexy. Anyway finally we had enough space to race both slowed down to 25mph and took off haha and i think he was suprised when the bus lengths were put on him. I probably beat him by about 8-9 cars he was a m6 so maybe some driver error but still fun after the race he gave me a thumbs up cool guy

Yea but you shouldnt of been able to put that many car lengths on him unless something wasnt right. You dont know if it was a LS2 or a LS3 C6 do you?

It very could have been an LS2 non Z51.

An LS3 6M puts down around 380+rwhp stock. Lighter, more aerodynamic and possibly better geared than the LS1.

Curious, what trap speeds have you hit? Or should I ask, what trap speed is an LS1 with H/C capable of?

with the statements above.

We know it was not a LS3 because he should have been right there with you if not beating you. A LS2 car shouldn't be that far behind the LS3 car. I say this because awile back a mag did a comparison LS2 against a GT500 the LS2 car was right there or was beating the GT500.
