Better add more boost .
Cool. So can we count you out on wanting a new GT?
Without you chasing different dreams, we wouldn't have all the great write-ups, so for you I say, thank you, and go for it. If that new vette comes out, rent it, flog it, and write about it. But this time, remember to keep the GT.
Yawn. Let's talk when they, or anyone else, put together a car to win Le Mans.. wins Le Mans.. and then puts that exact (almost) car on the street.
Yeah, and different purposes too. The GT's time was set on an informal warm up lap during which the tires needed to be preserved for the magazine driver. The ZR1 time was set during a lap-record assault. In any event, the cars would really need to be lapped the same day by the same driver to make any meaningful comparison. It doesn't matter which one is quicker around the track as far as I'm concerned. Both are American icons, but only one is a Ford homologation car with a storied racing history after only 2 seasons.
I was talking with Billy Johnson about this.. as you state he was just making sure the car was right for the magazine,, he can go way faster.. but the Vette does have some big power but who cares.. this thread is a rehash,, been discussed before for you part timers..
