Is this right? This car only dynoed 640rwhp! Is that really an alpha 9?
Yeah people should not underestimate z06's or Vettes period. They are complete MONSTERS when paired with a great driver that knows the gearing and has crisp shifts. Little mods do a lot. I have a few buddies with z06's that are lightly modded by Cunningham Motorsports and are VERY quick. Before my turbos were upgraded and just had all the bolt-ons and a tune, I ran a z06 with just an intake and a tune and I have to say it was VERY close so this run does not surprise me. From what I know, the z06's 1st gear goes all the way to 60mph and have long gearsGood death...
These guys are way underestimateing the z06..
Ive raced a 680 awhp pumpgas SPengineering gtr and a 650 rwhp z06...
Z06 was much faster...it should be. Its around 700 pounds lighter and has quite a bit more torque..
When I raced the same GTR on race gas at 750 awhp it pulled me about the same as the 650 rwhp z06.
Dont underestimate the z06 guys. They trap 123-128 mph in the quartermile 100% stock with just 450 rwhp. So its easy to se how even just a 550 rwhp one is in the 129-134 mph range...650 rwhp and when it comes to z06s thats a 140 mph car
