All of this. The C8 is stupid fast bone stock. My brother in law has one and we’ve talked about going somewhere to see how my A10 GT and his C8 do up against each other. We’re probably equal skill driving wise and I have no doubt I’ll be looking at his taillights the whole way.You DID NOT catch a C8 by the middle of 2nd gear in your GT on any type of race after getting hole shotted. The only reason you caught him and passed is because he came off the gas. I have been to the track. I have raced just about everything out there. If your GT was somehow a full second faster in the quarter mile and got hole shotted, it would still take the entirety of a quarter mile just to catch him. Even if you ran a faster time, after getting hole shotted, you will not catch and pass the other car for a long time unless something happened to their car or they lost traction at the 1-2 shift or they missed a gear (impossible with an auto) or some other mishap. That is a 495 HP C8 with an 8sp DCT that shifts faster than anything you have ever experienced and is designed to put all of it's power to those tires. It has more power than your car, weighs less than your car, has better traction than your car even if you had DRs, has better aero than your car, does 0-60 in less than 3 seconds, and does a low 11 second bone stock. If there was any chance on this or any other planet that you could catch him, it will not be in the middle of second. And most definitely not in a 17 GT with minor bolt ons. The only reason you caught him and passed him is because he let off the gas and you stayed in it. Now if you want to be arrogant and resist everyone on here telling you the same thing, then by all means go right on ahead. But you are severely mistaken. And trust me, I love the GT. But you need to face facts and listen.
Yea I've done a few 60 rolls against C8s, it's the absolute sweet spot for a 500...they don't even jump out just get demolished, but I wouldn't race one from a dig either unless I had room to do at least a quarter mile. But the 17 GT with an exhaust and a tune reeled him in lol.....I have a 19 Roush RS3 with P2 Tune, lots of suspension work, running Borla S AE Cat-back. Car from a roll is just flat fast and even with TC on have to be careful. From a launch-forget it. Just no traction and have to be really careful through 2nd gear.
I've done a roll against a C8 from 60.......he jumped out and I just reeled him in and gapped him pretty quick. I rolled out to 7K RPM in 3rd/4th gear and then backed off. That said, I am smart enough not to run against a C8 from a launch.
At least someone gets it!Hmmm.. didn't know you were there. HERE's a pro tip for you: Learn to drive your car.
I spent a lot of time perfecting street digs. Spent a lot of time setting my car up for
street digs. Cause that's what I do. Result: beat some cars I shouldn't have. Ain't THAT
hard to do.
Now it ain't my problem that some of you's have ZERO clue what yer doing. Seems the
only thing you's can do is just bitch/whine/complain on how it 'didn't happen'.
100% laughable. Not with you... AT you.
