I gotcha and I agree. More power is not needed. Just a great combo of aero and tires. Case in point before the ACR smashed the Laguna record not many gave it a chance because it is down 300 or so...

Well the Viper can be modded with the Mag-like Tractive suspension which is an improvement over the stock Bilsteins from what I've read. Instead of a blower there is a H/C package that adds about...

I would like to see a Z07 with comparable aero and tires do a head to head with a bone stock ACR same day with Pobst at the helm of both. Of course it will be much closer than it is stock to stock...

I love both cars but I just dont understand the myopia on those that think the ZR1 could remotely handle an ACR on any track. The Ring is a 13 mile track and the ACR won by 4 secs despite giving up...

The very low production numbers is probably the biggest factor in that price. I can easily see the car fetching a 100k price tag as it is incredibly engineered with cutting edge tech. But one can...

By that token the ACR with its Michelin Sport Cups should be faster then the SRT10 because it has much stickier tires then the SRT10's ps2's. Buuuut that isnt the case so far. The ACR is lighter...

This statement says the ACR is the better choice for your needs. ZR1 is a DD/track car whereas the ACR is a Weekender/track car. No dilema at all. Plus you said this:

Nice video. Gotta love this car regardless of which ever brands flag you fly. Minimal to no lean at all in the turns. ZR1 is one of the best performers, without a doubt, in the supercar arena.

If straightline is all you guys care about then the Z06 will rape the GTR in that catagory. C6 will also run with or beat the GTR in the straights. But when it comes to circuit tracking the GTR...

A black sportcar much less a black ZR1 just looks sinister, evil in the vein of the original Undertaker from WWF. I can just hear the bell ringing as a black ZR1 pulls up. Bong Bong Bong. Death...

An ACR with all its downforce in play did 173mph at Bonneville flatout[would not go any faster due to downforce]. ZR1 bettered it in just a mile. Nasty.
