Coming home from some food at night... me and my buddy decided to give it a run before we split...

we lined up and decided to run up to 3rd gear limit, nothing too crazy...

light dropped and I had more than half car length on him... but it only lasted for a split second... when I shifted from 2nd to 3rd, i saw his nose sticking up on my side and keep pulling really hard, when I ran outta room in my 3rd, I saw his tail... nice run, that thing is quick. we'll do it again when there's a chance.

Aren't they 0-60 in 4.2?
Sounds like you had fun.
I've always wanted to race a "supercar" that I know would beat me. For some reason getting killed by a super nice car would feel nice esp a Ferrari or Porsche

FYI...

Consistantly get low 4's with my G-Tech which is acurate to +/- 0.1 sec. on the quarter. Best was a 4.02.

The quarter mile times are verified with time slips at Cayuga.

The guy you raced was likely someone with limited launching experience. Z's are difficult to launch as they have to be feathered through the first two gears.

You may consider this odd, but I find it more challenging to learn how to launch a car like this with limited traction. It's a very fine line between maximum traction, and just sitting there spinning your tires. It's taken me a good 3 dozen runs at Cayuga to get down my 60' to a consistant 2.1. And even then, every so often, I miss that exact point and just spin the tires mercilessly and get that embarrasing 2.3 and up .....

Putting DR's on the car means the car is much easier to launch.
First gear becomes a clutch dump at 2500 rpm and stand on the gas after the top of 1st. Becomes too easy, and no challenge.

hmm, i dont understand that! cause you could get yourself some nice 1.6-1.8 60fts and really great times are all dependant on your launch supposing you have the power. BUT i understand the fun of taking the tires to the limit

You know, a 2.1 is what i`ll be getting in my FWD with a street slick (hopefully , if i can learn also)

Z06's price wise aren't even THAT expensive for their performance numbers.
I saw a barely used 03 Z06 going for less than a new $42,500 2003 325ci

but you know what people say about Vette drivers...
