    Oh but i did see it, also im not in fantasy land i know having 100+hp more will give you the advantage if you get traction, thats why i say that given enough space the gt500 will beat the zl1 on a street race, i also said the gt500 will kill the zl1 on a roll race for the same reason.

    Just like i see the zl1 1le posting better lap times than the gt500 on all the tracks where they have posted times, i was expecting MT to include the gt500 on the best driver car so i could see the Laguna Seca lap times too, but it looks like we will have to wait for next year for that one.

    I think I'll ever launch a car, but I'm curious, why is there a delay?

    Old follow up, but yeah, I wasn't overstating the bad design when I said the trunk is absurd. These cars are street cars first, especially when they share a common platform with flavors that are not specifically setup for the track - and in that capacity, the trunk/opening is a poor f***ing design (the trunk capacity changing with the top position for the [ZL1] convertible became a huge ding for me ...)

    Ok, so you saw it and wanted to ignore facts that proved your statement completely wrong. Got it.

    Given enough space? The 500 doesn’t need space to beat the zl1 in a straight line. It will beat it in the 330, the 1/8th, and beyond as observed in the Edmunds video we shared for you where it was repeatedly gapped by the 500, over and over and over.

    Thats not what happened on the streets of willow, it couldn't catch it, none of the 2 zl1s that they raced it with, so it does need the space, the fact that all the magazines place the two cars 0.1s appart it their 1/4 mile tests says that its not on the 330 that it catches it.

    My GT with a stage two Roush has decimated two ZL1's in a straight line.. I win, subscribe to me on youtube.

    PS. I don't post car video's, I'm just an internet warrior :)

    PPS. The ZL1 is badass. I think it looks great.. But I stand by my above statement.

    so its ok to listen when the throttle house guys say that the gt500 tires are cooked, but not when the edmund guys say they cant get traction because its too cold?
