Ah, nope. You're definitely wrong. Owned an 09 C6Z, now own an A8 C7Z. Based on personal, recorded numbers across many scenarios, the C7Z wins, consistently, due to published/factual power advantages.

Sorry that Miss Piggy continues to annoy you. Time to call the divorce lawyers and move on.

Yeah the 2300 blower is where itís at. Who knows what the 2650 will do but a good setup on the 2300 is good for 140+ in the 1/4 mile with zero drivability issues unlike a big cammed C6Z06. Next up for me!!!!

Been keeping track of your 2300 threads...........

yep. 2300 seems to be the solution and I guess it wonít over stress the bottom end of the motor or other stock drivetrain components.

Read first sentence, scrolled to end to say:
Odds of stock C6Z slim, and if it was true, it'd be slower, so sorry not biting today!

Things we know to be true:

Earth is flat
Flu shots give you the flu
C6Z is faster than the C7Z
Vaccines give you autism
chemtrails
new world order
hitler and elvis are alive

I included some 1500 rpm speeds.

C6 Z06 speed at redline (7000 rpm)

Code:
1st 2.66 =  61 mph
2nd 1.78 =  91 mph
3rd 1.30 = 125 mph
4th 1.00 = 162 mph
5th 0.74 = 220 mph (198 mph @ 6300 rpm)
6th 0.50 = 325 mph (162 mph @ 3000 rpm ??, 70 mph @ 1500 rpm)
C7 Z06 speeds at redline (6500 rpm)

Code:
1st 2.29 =  66 mph
2nd 1.61 =  93 mph
3rd 1.21 = 124 mph
4th 1.00 = 150 mph ( 35 mph @ 1500 rpm)
5th 0.81 = 186 mph ( 43 mph @ 1500 rpm)
6th 0.67 = 225 mph (186 mph @ 5400 rpm 52 mph @ 1500 rpm)
7th 0.45 = 333 mph (??? mph @ ???? rpm 77 mph @ 1500 rpm)

C7 Z06 186 mph top speed is with aero 3. Should be 195 -> 200 mph with aero 1.

Hugh? I agreed with your observation the C7 in the video is a GS not a Z06.
And you respond with an insult?

Perhaps you misunderstood my complement?
