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.
Wanna race? That's a pretty nice WRX you got there. Since our cars have about the same performance, how 'bout you take of your radial tires, turbos, andstick a carburetor on it?
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.
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"
