I hope your right, I am sure most would be happy with those numbers.
Mind me asking where you got the info and if there is a link to it.

Wow!!! BTW how did you get these data? When were the cars run? I've always thought that C&D has better drivers and usually get better times than MT, but not this time.

OH MY GOD!!!!

is it 0-150 in 17 secs or 18 secs? Some people are saying 17, and others are saying 18.

Also, any braking data?

Oh darn, GM is fibbing. :guiness: I was wondering with those CNC heads, titanium goodies, etc, 505HP seemed conservative.
I can't wait to see what the detractors (i.e. There is no substitute and The Ultimate driving machine) to say: "The radio knobs are cheap..."

I'd also like to add
[1] But the pos still uses leaf springs
[2] and pushrods
[3] and it's only a Vette, millions of them on the road, not as "exclusive" as our Vxxxr!
