Now for the moment of truth. Is it faster then my Bonneville?




Now, my Bonneville, the grandpa car with a simple v6 does 0-60 in 5 seconds plat with street tires. Best I can see, about 5.2 seconds for the Vette. So, a $30k car gets beat by a -$10k car.

Vette owner,

I'd put money on the vette being faster in a real race.

Keep in mind, my car is as fast at 1/3 the price. If I dropped another $18k in to my car to match the price, it would no longer be a very streetable car. And be WAY faster.

I still think currently the vette is faster and that you over estimate your car. Not egging you on to get to the track at all buddy.

Experience tells me you are not as fast in the 1/4 mile as you think.

Meanwhile I need to finish sorting out my "issues" and prep to hit the track this fall. I'm w/o a doubt in the 12'*, according to mods and previous times it should be low to mid. With my poor driving ability..well I'll settle on mids until I put a better driver in it.

Bill, your car is more modded then the GTX I'm working on, and that car was a 12.5 on slicks. And we've built it up a bit more. He'* shooting for a 12.2 this year. If your not in the low 12s then your track prep will need to be looked at.
