As long as the car isn't making a fair amount of power you are correct, but better choice and good spot are two different things. Like I said, if I was in a c5z setting up a roll race I would not be picking 55-60 mph as the start speed.

Wrong.

This one is free, I'll charge you for the next one rookie.

On a NA c5z 50-55 is the sweet spot in 2nd. 45 is ok and 60 is ok, if you know how to drive and dont have the reflexes of a tortoise.

Definitely in a stock limiter, stock tire height car. 60 roll in gear that goes 68 laid out on the limiter. Yea, that's real effective.

Actually it goes 72 mph in 2nd according to the gear calc. Stock limiter should be at 6600. And should be turned up to 7k.

Ok **** tard. Every other c5z hits the rev limiter at 72mph in 2nd. I guess your vette is a special needs vette. It just falls a little short like the owner.

Keep doing them 40 rolls in 3rd gear bro! 2.5K RPM hits FTW!!!

He's just mad because his c5z would have been a victim of c5z on c5z crime.

Zyborg, I don't think you have room to criticize anyone's driving when you're scared of your 11 second car.

He came from a 5G. The extra power takes awhile to get used to.
