One last thing, in 1973 Car&Driver compared a Jag, a Ferrari, a Porsche, and a Mercedes. The 'Vette out-ran, out-cornered, and out-brake them all.
Corvette Driver: Why yes, yes it is. Wanna race?
Honda Civic Driver: OK, lets do it. One condition tho.
Corvette Driver: What's that?
Honda Civic Driver: We go uphill, you drive backwards, and i get a three-quarters length head start.
Corvette Driver: Ok.
Narrator: Unfortunately for Mr.Civic, his VTech didn't kick because he couldn't get his car over 5000 rpms going uphill and the Corvette still won.
First off, the vette has and always will have an amazing suspenion. the c5 z06 pulled a full 1.0g on the skid pad stock.
Secondly the vette is fast in a straight line as well, it can run an 11.6 in the quarter mile stock.
now that you have all been enlightened a little bit, go buy a vette, then judge it.
"The full 1.0g and 51/49 balance are probably why"
"but damn it's fast in the quarter mile too"
"a vette is a well rounded car"
