    Um....I see some nice mods on the car but unless I skipped over it I don't see any upgraded rods.

    Just so you know, I blew my C6 Z06 motor with a 100 shot. Bent the titanium connecting rods.

    You can draw your own conclusions as to what will happen to this car if he wants to race it. Otherwise if he has the aftermarket rods and all, he just needs to change the axle and put some drag radials on and he's looking at a low 9 second car.

    Thanks, that is what I was looking for. So upgraded rods and this is quite the beast, isn't it?

    Upgraded rods for sure but not sure what would have been next on it...

    I did multiple top speed runs using N2O so maybe a lot of people can get away with using a small shot. I run my cars all out though.

    I had Vette Doctors stage 2 which was all the boltons plus a camshaft. Made something like 550rwhp n/a and 650rwhp with 100 shot. Torque was around same as hp.

    Yeah that little stunt cost me an arm and a leg. At least black eric had the ride of his life lol.

    I put it back to stock as best as I could and traded it in for the M5. First off, the motor was blown and would have cost me a fortune to rebuild everything. I could have turned it into a MONSTER but it would have been a lot of money and I was kind of over the whole big rumbling V8 thing.
    The camshaft made it shake at the lights. It is cool at first but you get a lot of people looking at you thinking your car is busted. Plus it would overheat a lot and my AC would go dead. Try making it through i95 traffic on 90+ degree summer days with no AC at all and a bucking motor. It's just not that cool after a while.
    Another big problem the car had was traction and stability. I wasn't crazy about the high speed stability. The rear end was always very bouncy. Out of 5 Z06 owners I've spoken to, 4 of them have had the tail spin out on them and crashed. These are seasoned guys, one of them owning and tracking a 900rwhp C5 Z06. He said he liked the new looks and refinements of his C6 Z06 but the squirelly nature of it just turned him off. I personally did a 360 right down i87 while racing against a ZX10 and ZX14 (I'm sure Oldgixxer remembers that lol). It was a miracle I pulled it off. We had to do 90mph rolls the whole night.
    Also, I was at the point where the transmission was starting to give me problems and the brakes were shot. It just wasn't worth it for me anymore and I wanted to move onto something headache free.

    I loved the Z06 and still think about it here and there but if I were to get another American car and mod it up again I'd probably just go Viper and keep it a pure race car and not pretend that it can be used as a daily driven vehicle.

    But I can say that if you wanted a fast daily driver and don't need to beat the world with racing that the Z06 is HARD to beat. I'd just suggest giving it basic boltons such as an intake and exhaust and tune. Nothing more. The ride is pretty smooth, shifter and clutch are a breeze, and the seats are comfy. Fast as F*** too. ZR1 is probably a great car.

    Yeah that pretty much sums it up. Poor BMW took over my car, blown motor and all. They've screwed over me and my family countless times so it was time to return the favor lol.

    LOL you are dirty man! Hahah, I bet they deserved it. I would have done the same if I could. I feel sorry for whoever bought the car though, if they didn't find out before it was sold. Poor SOB....

    Honestly, that sounds like a nightmare.

    I'm sure the AC issues could be fixed.

    The squirrely nature though, that I'm not so sure about. Why would it just spin out?

    I drove a C5 Z06 several times, I was surprised by the stability. The C6 sounds almost like a white knuckle ride.

    This is why low torque M3's are the way to go Click here to enlarge

    Drag radials on the street would be a solution I guess. Sounds like a nightmare though.

    some said the downforce was pretty awful, he said actually the air trapped between car and ground pushes the car up.

    I remember i had wheel spin at +160mph, what's the logic reason? the tail was about to fly.

    That's odd that you experienced no traction with the Z06. I've driven a friend of mine's 2007 and 2009 Z06 and both of those were well planted, even when pushed hard. Car felt like it was on rails. Granted, both of his were stock and the tires were in good shape.

    at above +160 MPH it's a dart, IDK how ItalianStallion managed to +180 MPH because it's really scary.

    I took that $#@! to 200mph and had multiple 190mph pulls.

    The Z06 definitely needed some extra downforce with all that extra power. I swear the rear end was wiggling as I kept accelerating into triple digit speeds to 200mph.

    GetSome...the car handled incredible and was a dream to drive. But on imperfect roads the car would hop around. Also, on top speed highway runs the car became pretty unstable. I survived the 20 or so 180+mph runs I've done in it but trust me it is not on rails at those speeds.

    It's an American car and I doubt the designers at GM really honed in on the 160+mph stability whereas German cars are engineered for the Autobahn environments.

    I can see that. With the leaf spring rear suspension, it's kind of amazing it has the composure it does have. I only took the car up to 140 (buddy asked me to open it up to give him feedback on how it handled). It was solid at that speed. I bet with a coil over suspension and some extra downforce, it would have been back on track, so to speak. (think "on rails")

    Damn glad youre still alive. From what I am hearing it is not so stable at those speeds. Have you gotten a chance to take a ZR1 up to 180, those cars are geared more for top speed and such.

    I can imagine when the nitrous hits you blow your tires loose from all the torque on your vette right?
    Some people live long, meaningful lives.

    How do the leaf springs act any differently than torsion or coil suspension on any other car. They aren't normal leaf springs like on old body on frame cars.

    I was just thinking along the line that for such a performance oriented car, function would be well served by an adjustable set of coil overs, as opposed to the older technology of a leaf spring.
