GTO vs C6

Today I came across an orange C6 Vette. Automatic with the Z51 pkg. Old guy, probably about 40 or so. He sees me come up behind him, and he speeds up so we can catch the redlight. We get beside each other. Each of us looking at each other, we knew what was going to happen next.

Light turns green, and we're off, I get a perfect launch and pull about a half a car until about 20 when he proceeds to go by me. Those things are ****ing quick! By about 65 or so when we shut down, he had about 1.5 cars on me. I wasn't trying to go much faster seeing as we were getting ready to enter the town limits which are 25.

C6

Yup...the GTO is fast, but the Z06's and C6's will beat us. The C6 is much lighter than the GTO, plus the Vette's Factory Intake breaths alot better than the GTO's. Now a C5 would be a better race, as long as it isn't a Z06

Yeah - you can EMBARESS a C5, and it is one of the most gratifying things I have done. Especially when the guy driving the Vett admits to it at the next light. Priceless.

WE have 50 more HP and more TQ.......................however we are about 600 pounds heavier than a C5..........so a length or two is not too bad!

Vettes are not for Lunch get it right. They are not even for snacks. C5/C6 Z06 are off limits. On good day these things hang with Vipers.

If what you're saying is Corvette Z06= crushed GTO, I'll agree. Stock for stock the C5 versus the 05 GTO is a drivers race with a slight edge to the GTO. Maybe what you are saying is the Vette (C5) is a full course meal that will leave you feeling satisfied while digesting it, not just lunch.
