onequick99, I don't think so, the Corvette driver just had more guts to drive at a higher speed then the driver of the Ferrari, for all we know, the Ferrari driver just got the car and doesn't know how to drive the car. Of course I think the Ferrari driver had more concern for the other people on the road then the Corvette driver, IMO. [Roll Eyes] Bill

Actually the ferrari bill is 455hp at the crank and the vette is running almost 700 due to the fact that he's running a paxton s trim supercharger I will try to load another vid from the track he totally crushes the ferrari in the quarter mile!! Besides a bone stock $50,000 z06 vette is equally as fast as a ferrari from 0-150 pretty sad thats all you get for $250.000! I will admit that their driving is very wreckless and could easilly kill someone!! Don

I could go out on the highway right now and pass a ferrari or a porsche, or whatever. I have a Hyundai. On roads, it is all about who is willing to drive faster, not who can go or accelerate faster. I'd like to see the cars compared on a track!

That's the bad thing about ferraris you cant really mod them no one makes parts! And I had a 03' Zo6 heavily modded until I got married and had a kid now I'm stuck with a grocery getter (smack head) Check out this vid it's a lightly modded mitsubishi evo VIII vs 360 ferrari I believe they are around $25,000.00 new and will hang with just about anything in the twisties AWD!! http://videos.streetfire.net/Player.aspx?fileid=7E35F4DB-44A8-4DBB-BB52-1EB04F585051&kw=26&p=2

Drag racing is to racing as masterbation is to sex. Street racing is several notches lower than that.

Hey everyone is entitled to there own opnion but the fact of the matter is that a stock z06 will hang with a 360 modena ferrari street strip or track and for a price tag of about $200,000 less. Sometimes the truth hurts especially if you own a ferrari [Big Grin]

I seriously doubt that the average Ferrari owner gives a rats rear end what some wanker in a Corvette thinks. I'm saying that as a Corvette owner.

You'll never have the ***** replacement of a ferrari or a real porsche (non boxter) in a fast car. It might not be pretty, or have that "WOW, Ferrari" label on the front, but for $250k, if you actually want performance, you wouldn't waste your money on a 360 modena. [Razz] The fact of the matter is, any car you build will be faster than some, and slower than others. It's just that some cars take to modifications well, and can be purchased cheaply. With the same amount of $$ into an Evo8 as you would have into a 360 modena, or even a GT3, you would absolutely demolish them on a racetrack, both straight line and corners. The difference is that at the end of the day, when you take your sweetheart out to dinner, you're not in a ferrari. [I dont know] I'd rather have the better car. I don't need a status symbol to pick up women. [Wink] [Cheers!]

If at the end of the day I was taking my sweetheart out to dinner in a ferrari I would kick my own azz for not spending the money on a better car [I dont know] I don't need a status symbol to pick up women. Funny I have a few friends who say the same thing and there single!

Not quite sure why everyone thinks ferraris are so fast sure they look great and have very good performance but the fact of the matter is that a bone stock z06 will easilly hang with a $250.000 ferrari at the strip or track! ferrari 360's 0-60 is aprox 4.1 sec a bone stock 405 horse z06's 0-60 is 3.9 I will post some vids of a stock vette racing a 360 ferrari they are basically tied. I am also going to post a $25,000 mistubishi evo awd turbo smoking a 360 ferrari. See for yourself [Big Grin] http://videos.streetfire.net/Player.aspx?fileid=8147489A-D46A-408B-92D8-D344A64A65C7&p=0 [ August 12, 2005, 12:37 PM: Message edited by: onequick99si ]
