    Alright Im calling BS on this one just until someone with more wrx knowledge than myself can prove me wrong. I have seen z06s trap 116 bone stock...I have over 400hp and I get WALKED by z06s...they are FAST. If you hung with this guy then I would be REALLY impressed, but I have to think if this guy was all in it, you would have been left!!

    If the Z06 didn't downshift (would you if a WRX pulled alongside you in a Z06) I would say it's possible. I know someone from another board that says he pulled on a Z06 with a STG 3 1.8T GTI, what do you guys think of that one, I was kind of thinking same deal.

    Have you ever seen a z06 at speed?!?!? Its CRAZY. Those things just PULL like nothing. My friend has a 00 z28 with a ton of bolt ons...he routinely hangs with 03 cobras, and we ran into a z06 one night on the freeway...went from a 3rd gear roll, the z06 put 6-7 cars on my buddy in a matter of seconds!

    Yeah I have and I know what you're saying, I'm just trying to keep an open mind So you say no way in hell even if the other cars mentioned are trapping at 110-115 and the Z06 didn't downshift to a lower gear?

    certainly, if that is true...but I have a hard time believing that z06 guy was that dumb to leave it in 5th!! If he did, then the cocky bastid deserved to lose.

    seriously, it's not BS, thats pretty sad if someone lies about a race. according to magazines like c&d, road and track, etc, the vette is only about a tenth or slightly more quick in the 1/4. maybe he didnt know how to drive, but this isnt BS.

    In my stage 4 WRX, I made a habit of beating Z06's at our local 1/8 mile. Yes, this is because of the faster 60' times and then the Z06 has to play catch up. But at the 1/8 mile mark, I would still have a pretty good advantage. These Z06s at our little 1/8 mile are only running mid 8s in the 1/8 mile. My 8.18 @ 84mph just tore them up.

    Another factor is not all Z06's run the numbers you see in the mags. The last time I was up at Bradenton Speedway there were 2 , Z06s running in the high 12s @ 110mph range. Thats way off the mag stats.

    Stage III 1.8Ts run mid 12's @ ~112 MPH in the 1/4 mile. It's believeable.
