the new Z06 is geared out to maximize its performance just like the C5z06 is geared out to maximize its performance IMO!

the C6 Z06 will hit 0-60 quicker with its gearing then if it had C5 Z06 gearing, C5 Z is claimed 3.9seconds, but to accomplish that ,alot of practice and experience is nedded, I believe with the New Z hitting 60+ in 1st the shiffting into 2nd is out of the equation, plus more torque and bigger gear will give it more a smooth launch so it will be much eaisier to accomplish sub 4second 0-60s with average drivers...

for 1/4 mile, I cant wait to see what they will do, we all know what the c5 Z06 is capable of, can you imagine, same weight, more torque, way more power, and one less gear to shift at the top end, the only problem is the roll cage rule has to go down even more then 11.49
