2017 gt, 2002 FXDWG, 2008 C6,
both of which are wins on the street,
Only if the corvette was racing. He probably punched it and let off when he hit the speed limit.

OP has another thread where a GT-R only
pulls a fender on him throughout the run.

He must have the quickest mildly modified 2017 in existence.
Probably an stock 09-10… from a roll, yeah, a fbo e85 might be able to win by a little… 2012 and up? Hardly… if tuned? Nope… fbo? Not even close without F/I

I know how hard the gtr launch and a C8 launches pretty similar and i also know the gt fbo e85 capabilities… not because i read it in a magazine, i have a friend of a friend, etc… i own both… the gtr and the gt… there is no way in planet earth that you can catch a C8 after launch control, in the streets, where the vette was pressing thr gas racing against you while you were shifting from 1st to 2nd and then reel him….

nobody said you can’t win… just that 1st to 2nd never happened because the guy just let off the gas… again… you need a lot of traction and power that you don’t have to accomplish that that fast and easy.

This reminded me to the ecoboost guys saying that their eco will beat a gt in 3er gear if the race was only at partial throttle lmao

He would not beat a gtr or a c8. A fbo gen2 mustang gt on e85 is barely faster than a stock gen3 10 speed.

Uh, if the C8 driver blew his doors off the line, then let off, and he flew by in the Mustang after the C8 lets off, that's an easy win for the C8.

09-10 stock gtr? Without any problems a 2nd gen gt fbo e85 can win… from a roll, you will definitely win if you have decent traction…

09-10 gtr have like 350-365 whp

Compared with today standards? Yes… newer ones are capable of high 10s stock, low 10 fbo e85… after that, whatever you want depending on how deep your pockets are… but newer cars have improved a lot… a basic supercharged gt pushing 700 whp is easy to get/build and from a roll it should be enough to walk a fbo gtr

Ya, I looked up the hp and it was way less than I thought.

What car, trans, and mods do you have that you're doing 0-60 in under 3 seconds? Is it street-legal? Street-able? Track only? Would you have to roast your tires and launch at 4000 RPMs and hope the road is sticky enough in early Fall weather to accomplish this feat? Is this on street tires, DRs, slicks? Just curious.
My mods are in my sig. car is 100 % streetable.

Quite possibly just a brand new car with the rpm limited until break in complete.

If the guy just bought the C8 it is limited to what is I think 3500-4500 RPM's until it unlocks at 500 miles..So he could of beat it if the car simply ran out of RPM's.

A C8 corvette runs to 60 in 2.8-2.9 seconds and runs 11.2-11.5 in the quarter mile……and you’re saying a 17 Mustang with a canned tune and about 20hp of bolt ons, caught a C8 that launched by 2nd gear (before 60) and pulled away from it? I’d like to see proof of that. Neither my Whipple’d 2020GT with a ton of suspension or my stock GT350 can hang with a C8 to 60
Have you watched these C8s run at the track stock? Most if not all I have seen are lucky to run an 11:50s most are in the 11:70s & 80s. Must be they are all terrible drivers.
