You're probably right. Math is hard.

The c7z is at a disadvantage with its puny supercharger in acceleration . I feel like vadge short changed us.

C7z auto is a beast on the 1st 60 feet at the quarter mile. Thatís it.

Only cure For the c7z is a supercharger change. Then itís not stock anymore or you have a zr1.

More pesky math.

Added:

650 lb/ft vs 470 lb/ft = 28% more torque. Definitely needs a bigger supercharger. So anemic...

But you don't understand... the C6 is just... FASTER... somehow...

Bottom line is no matter what numbers we put down, people are gonna be like "but I seent it on da youtubes!"

As I mentioned in a previous post in this thread, not too many Zs in my area, but you have my word that the next time I come across one, I'll do a race and make a video if I have to hold the guy at gun point

If you go fully loaded, 3LZ/Z07, absolutely. 1LZ and 2LZ are going to be lighter.

Regardless, 12% doesn't get you to 28% more torque and 29% more horsepower.

Nope. And I tried to simplify it by putting raw power:weight ratio, but apparently that ain't good enough either.

Why don't you just sell your C7Z and get a C6Z? I just don't understand the constant complaining, negative comments, etc.

Who cares 🙄. Seriously if you are that unhappy with your C7 then sell it and get something that makes you happy. Not sure why one would keep harping on this. Many of us are perfectly content with our cars. When I move on to. 911 turbo S I wonít be coming here to bad mouth the Z. Itís a fantastic car for what it was built for and a Varga for the price.

I agree with the above posts. If you hate your car that much just get rid of it and get a C6Z and be happy. I am sure everyone else here would be happy.

Also, this has been disputed and proven multiple times. Stock for stock the C6Z is not faster than a base stage 1 aero C7Z. The aero package makes a huge difference in a straight line.

I owned 2 of both cars. Chonger is correct!

Mr gizmo all he does is complain abut the C7 and how great the C6 is. His post really are pure garbage not sure why he bothers. Sell it and move on.
