Default 00' Trans am vs. 01 z06

Well when I was leaving mcdonalds today, a saw a black z06 pulling out of a parking lot. I was stuck at the light so i decided to give it a rev, so he could wait and maybe have some fun.
SO I caught him up and asked him what he had done to his vette. He said it was bone stock, I was excited cause I hadn't raced a stock zo6 yet and wanted to see how I would fair against one. I beat a catback 00 c5 by about 2 car lengths before, but hadn't raced a z06. My car has gmmg catback, w/ cutout after ipipe, and a whisper lid.
We hit it off at about 35 the first time, but since he didn't know the three honk method he didn't exactly start at the same time, none the less we stayed pretty much even the whole time, till about 80.
After explaining the three honks we kicked it off at about 20, we went back and forth, getting barely a nose on each other till 100. We did it again and were about dead tied again the whole time.
Overall it was a fun experience I thought he would of had me, but it turned out to be some good races.

very nice job. I raced a z06 and he had me at the end of the 1/4 we went from a dead stop and then a few months later I came back after my converter and had him but he came hard at the end if we would have went a little bit longer he would have passed me.

Nice runs...Weve actually raced a couple SS's and can pull pretty easy on them froma roll. We have a B&B exhaust (no mufflers) and thats it, but its an 02.

I agree, what do you trap at??

Bc a stock 01 Z06 SHOULD trap anywhere between 113-115.

So if you raced a SS and won then,they are all pretty easy to pull from???

So by saying,"i raced an 02 ZO6 and won" i should not worry about any of them?


I could be splitting hairs,but from your post that is what stood out to me.
Maybe it's because i have an SS,who knows.

I have to wonder on this one. Maybe you did hold your own, but with the mods you say you have, it dosn't add up. If I recall the zo6 is like a low 12 second ride and I'm thinking you are probably low 13's.
No offense, but this stretch's the imagination.

Hmmm I don't think that guy could drive to well Because like the others said he should be trapping 113-115 in a stock Z06. I have almost all the bolt ons and some weight out and I race with my buddies dad's 02' Zo6 and we are very close and my current best ET is 12.10 @ 114.

The original post is for a 2001 Z06 and not the 2002 Z06. Correct me if I am wrong but I believe the engine changed from 01 to 02.

Also, what does a stock 2001 Z06 do in the quarter since 2002 stats for a Z06 really do not matter in this case.

The 01 Z06 has 20 fewer horsepower than the 02.

I believe you, and i have posted on this subject myself also. My car with the mods in my sig pulled a little bit while racing a ZO6 one time. Im not gonna lie and say i expected to, or that i can beat ZO6's because i got lucky one time. I am more than aware of what a ZO6 is capable of. But nevertheless on this night, in this city, the ZO6 was pulled on by a trans am. All I can say is maybe he was a sucky driver, had pounds of stereo equipment, TC may have still been on, i dont know. The fact is that i pulled on him(ever so slightly)and that is what happened. There was a cop car up the street from us driving our way and we noticed him when i was at about 80 and we shut down and parted. Met back up with him later when we got back on the main road and all he said was your car is really fast. Call BS all you want, it happened. So good kill to you and keep them coming.

Hey, the way I look at it is like this...good driving there man. But the reality isn't that a ZO6 "should" be faster than your car, or mine, or any other bolt on ls1s, but the fact is that it "IS" faster....just not with that driver, on that nite. You simply out drove the guy...great job! I have done this type of thing myself in the past...if you can beat the driver most of the time you will beat the car. That's my .02

2001 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 4.6 13.0

Thanks guys for backing me up on this, I didn't know what they ran in the quarter, but i knew what I did and what the outcome was. It happened believe it or not, why would I come on here and make up some bullshit story to impress a bunch of guys I don't know? If that's how you roll, i feel sorry for you. Too all the non believers LIke brian said maybe it was supposed to beat me, but it didn't on this night

4.6 AND 13.0 ARE THE SLOWEST NUMBERS YOU CAN POSSIBLY FIND FOR A 2001 Z06....

That C5 coupe ran a 13.1 and 4.8 but the 01 Z06 has 35 more HP and 150 pounds less weight and only pulled a 13.0...and 4.6?????

The normal range for a 2001 Z06 in all the mags and by real drivers is 12.6-12.8 and 4.3-4.4 0-60 at around 112-114 mph...

A 2002 z06 is 2 tenths and 2 miles per hour faster through the 1/4 mile...

You out drove him and congradulations on that. All the odds were stacked against you and you pulled it off.

Must of been a nice adrenaline rush when you pulled him.

I believe you as anything can happen on the street. I also will say the owner was probably not driving the car to it's potential. A bone stock Z of any year will pull hard on a lid catback LS1 Fbody when driven right. I've met one Z06 owner who would not rev his motor over 5500rpms as he claimed it would hurt the bearings!!!!!!

I don't know what i run in the 1/4 mile, cause there's not one too close to me. I did run a 1/8 track and trapped 87 mph. My e.t. wasnt too great, best of 8.3, my first time at the track, but what threw me off was it was also my first time with dr's cause I had just barely got them and couldn't launch right for ****. Anyway, maybe someone can help translate this into a 1/4 time?
