Sorry I don't find these myself, but I saw this at CF and thought everyone here needed to have a little read. Pretty cool article. Maybe the debate had already been settled, but if not, a pretty good article.

The Z06 with its weight advantage will beat a ZR1 that is making close to the same rwhp. The DRM ZR1 chip probably gave it several more hp than stock and the Z06 did not have a custom program. Still, the trap speed tells much.

I guess that settles it.
If the the ZO6 had an after market intake system like the ZR-1 had, maybe a Halltech, it would be no contest. /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_lol.gif

The ZO6 would win hands down. /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif

The ZR-1 is still one badass car. /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif

Had a 94 Z #100....Great car. The new Z will beat it in every area other than 3-4 mph at top speed, if you have 3 miles to open up....A well driven z06 will et in the 12:50 range...awesome...But shave 350 lbs off the zr1, put the new tires on it and look out.....

If you want EXOTIC get a Ferrari 360 Modena, personally the Corvette is the best sports car out there, especially the ZO6. PERIOD

I own a ZR-1 and would give it up if I must to buy a Z06. The one used in that article must have been more seriously modified than they would like to admit, so what's the pt. Any car can be made a whole lot better than stock given enough money invested to make more HP. The only fair comparison would be a shootout of a "stock" ZR-1 vs. Z06 also stock. I think we can expect a lot of similar articles in the coming year in many of the buff mags. It's only natural to compare Z06 to the ZR-1 and many journalist definitely will in those articles. I can see the magazine covers now, "Z06 vs. ZR-1 . . . undisputed KOTH?" /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_wink.gif
