Correct, and I was talking about the 911 the other guy was saying the C7Z loses to(which I quoted) . In my og post I stated he should pray he can tree the 720s.

If this is a race to just get to the end of the track first, then your experience should help with reaction time/etc. It still sounds risky since if he gets the launch control setup and gets even a decent pass, your in trouble. They trap 145 consistently. I had one at my annual track rental who held the stock record for a while. If you are racing time slips (ET only) then it can go either way. Good luck and have fun.

Yes... Who's talking about roll races?? A stock 991 turbo S runs 10.5 1/4 miles. A stock Z06 won't run that unless it's the absolute perfect day and track.

LOL. I was thinking the same. Some just canít keep things in perspective. Not sure how many times Iíve read about a Z06 spanking a fox body mustang. Just a little price difference there as well.

I am not worried about my driving. I can cut a good light and 60ft. I am banking on the fact that he has never been to the track before and wont be able to beat my reaction time. If he gets lucky and trees me then I deserve the loss.


He is somewhat of a braggart and attention ***** (obviously since he has a Huracan, Urus and Ghost as well) and I make fun of him for it...which has brought on the **** talk about my "redneck Chevy."

To the histrionic poster...good grief dude, go drive your car and relieve some stress.

I'd love it if you beat him and definitely think you have a shot, but i sure wouldn't put $5k on it. Race for fun. If you win oohhh the fun you will have rubbing it in to him. If he wins, well for 3x the price he should win. Sometimes it's good to be the underdog :p

Yeah, I doubt Iíll put money on it now. I will definitely race him if he will show up.

He probably wonít. His ego would take a hit if he lost.

Speaking of his 720...

He drove by the set where they are filming the new Bad Boys movie in Atlanta and the director flagged him down and offered him a scene in the movie and $2500 if they can use his car for the movie. Theyíre filming the scene as we speak. 4hrs of shooting for $2500. Apparently Will Smith is driving the car to a club or something. Pretty cool.

That's awesome! Those movies always have some sweet cars in them. Hope to see the 720 in it

Imo. You will destroy him at the track. Driver experience is key here. You knowing your car and him not. NOT to mention cutting a light.

Parameters? 1st to finish line?
Better ET?
1 race?
Red light auto loss?

Get those set in stone before you run.

You got that race if you honestly think you are a 10.0 car.

Good call- maybe he'll look up histrionic and learn something about himself. FYI, he doesn't even own a Z06. He just likes to pound his fists and insult people who aren't in full agreement with what he believes.

If you do this race, have fun! I'd love to see a video of it if possible.

I ran [email protected] with 60 less hp. My car makes 723/765 on meth and torco now. I know it will run 9s.

And it will be first to finish line.

Anything can happen but like I said. If you are 10.0 I dont think chance in hell that novice at the track will come close to 10.0 probably 10.5 or worse...

Always hear people claim how easy it is to run an auto down the qtr mile only to watch them fail..miserably lol

I have taken far less and beaten way "faster".

Good luck hopefully you get that race.

This isn't a 1/2 mile race. You know what you gotta do, I don't think you'll have a problem. Get the tires hot and rip his soul out, hahaha!
