Default Turbo C5 vs 2016

Anyone got into a dog fight with 2016/2017 vette? Not sure but I believe a turbo C5 can make a new one look bad

Factory 2016/2017 ? I think it goes without saying that my turbo C5 would embarrass a factory 2016 or 2017.

The new vettes launch good off the line but the turbo would take it easily as long as you don't go up in smoke

My V3 car destroyed my friends C7Z with the lingenfelter 686 package (pakage numbers may be off but he was supposed to be around 600 wheel). We went 50-150ish and from 100 on it was just embarrassing for him.

My supercharged C5 put many bus lengths on a stock C7Z at this years half mile, and a car or two on a heavily modified one last year. Once aftermarket parts are in the equation, all bets are off.
