Yeah the rally car would take the Z06 and a V8 or really tuned Focus (alot of turbo power) might but thats about it

0-60 mph: 4.0 sec
0-100 mph: 9.5 sec
Quarter Mile: 12.5 sec @ 115 mph
Skidpad: .99g (thats almost as good as the RS)
Top Speed: 171 mph
Braking, 60-0 mph: 104 ft
Slalom Speed: 70.3 mph

My brother says he gets people like this on his bike all the time they try to race him he lets them go there hardest. takes off normally and still kicks there ass shifting half way through the powerband lol

You guys are saying like we were racing on the track. Obviously if you dont know the turn well, you are not capable of taking it at the max speed. We used to take that turn every day fast coming back from work, I wasnt saying that a good driver wouldnt be able to take it as fast as a focus. I said that parcticular driver could not do it, and that was what was funny.

MAYBE he dindt have what it take to take a 65mph exit....


but you say

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.
a corvette will catch a focus in matter of seconds after the turn if he was really racing...
maybe he wasnt even trying hard enough

Read those stats I put up on the Z06 those are the real stats if he had wanted to beat you he could've handed your ass to you in the snap of his fingers

Maybe you forgot that you had been smoking crack rock all morning before you raced him....The Z06 will stomp most cars into the ground (although I do love modded Cobras) the car is insanely fast and powerful, and handles like a dream. I speak from personal experience as my father owns a 2002 Quicksilver Z06. We mess around sometimes when we are on the beltway, I will pass him and he just kicks the car in the ass and lets off of it right away and I still got smoked hardcore rofl. I have followed him out some country roads too, the car destroyed me handling wise also. He was defintly just messing with you.

There is no reason to be rude. Maybe if you get your driving skills up, you will be able to keep up with your pops around turns.

Dude my mom was pacing three Z06's on the highway at 90 mph, well they then slowed down to about 70 and all three hit it. Let's just say they got up to ~130mph really quick and flew by us like nothing. The Z06 will OWN just about anything on the road.

maybe the z06 was missing an engine or a wheel or something. I could see you beating him then.
