Raced a C5 Z06 yesterday

It was my neighbor. He's had this car since it was new, I'm not exactly sure of the year but it does have the LS6 in it with 405hp. Anyway I seen him pulling out of his spot and I followed suit to se if he would play. He takes care of this car like it is his child so I was thinking he wouldn't. I pulled up next to him and immediately see him downshift so I do the same. I'm in first gear at about 30 mph and he figured he'd pull me easily and told me to hit it first then he'd follow. So I nailed it and to both of our amazement I ended up having a half a car on him by 90, then we shut down. Funny thing was, I never turned T/C off so I could actually feel that slowing me down all throguh first and some of second gear. Second race was the same thing only he hit it right when I did and I got him by a nose. So yeah, I'm happier than a pig in **** right now.

Now... you have to NEVER race him again, no matter how much money he spends on MODs. Tell him it's for his own good.

Beleave it or not LS6/LS2 are two differant beast. I will agree with you on the driving skills 02+ Z06 are low 12's to high 11 sec cars if driven correctly.
