Race VS a z06
 
I got a 2002 SVTF with CAI. One evening my buddy and I were out racing people in the area where I live and there is some awesome roads to drag where its 55 with lots of turn offs just in case you need to run from a cop. Anyway my buddy and I were driving perpendicular to the 55 mile per hour strech where there is an awsome banked turn, while we are driving we see a 2003 Corvette z06. He saw us too and started going right behind us. My buddy has a couple race cars that he races on the track with his dad so he is a pretty good driver. Anyway the vet wanted a piece of the focus, so my friend dropped it into second and took off toward the turn that supposably you have to take at 20mph, we went 65 around it in second red lining it the whole time (ouch for my car, i bitched his ass out really bad!!!!). By the time we came out of the turn we were soooo gone from the vet that he couldn't even catch up, he gave up after flooring it for awhile and made a u-turn on the next stoplight. Anyway he got spanked around the turn so bad, my friend and I could not believe it. We just couldnt imagine the look on the guy's face who is driving pretty much the fastest production car out right now. Anyway it ended up that the guy who got spanked was a friend of a friend, and we heard that he was really embarrased, i know i would be. Anyway i was really proud of my SVTF, go focus!!!!

Nice kill.
Z06 is nowhere near the fastest production car ever made.

Whats a faster production car out right now that you can still buy from a dealer? I basicly meant best bank for the buck production car :)

He probably wasn't racing, probably just driving normal in comparison to the svt, sry. The z06 is by far the best bang for the buck performance out of the box and is a monster compared the the focus, even an svt.

I know he was racing because he told us to go for it. I dont care how fast it is, it just cant hang with the little focus around turns like that.

Believe it or not :)

I will see if i can get him to race the focus again around that turn and tape it :)

The driver might not have been able to keep up, but the car was definetely capable. With a good driver, he'd spank you all day long, and then some more at night time!!

even with the turn as soon as he came out of it he would have been on your ass.

eh, i think the Cobra owns it, nut thats cus im a modder at heart[}:)]

My friend has a Z06

The cobra sorta owns it. But no, it does not. The z06 is not only fast out of the box, but as in this certain case, it has the agility to take turns well too. Corvettes are made pretty much all of abs plastic and weigh less than 3200 lbs. Finely tuned powerband and a very sophisticasted suspension. The cobra is about 10k less, but you're getting a bit less power (slightly, also it's not N/A either) and it's suspension is very week in comparison to a Fully IRS and the cobra weights about 500 lbs more too. The only other car that could be in this class would be one of the Bimmer M3's, but those cost even more than the z06.
