Default Corvette gs vs gt 500

I have a 2013 corvette gs m6. And plan to race my buddy for 100 dollars. He has a 2008 gt500 m6, convertible.. stock as far as I know. What are your predictions? Dig and a 40 roll.

You will pull him pretty steady in both scenarios.

any mods to either car? Even a decent tire would make a difference stock to stock..

Smart money is on you, unless you're a terrible driver and he is a pro driver.

Hes never raced. And I've been out of the game for about 7 years or so lol. Both cars bone stock. I did run another friend In his 2018 mustang gt, fbo and e85 and drag radial m6. And my car bone stock. From a 40 roll it was a dead even race. I need to rerun him tho.

Some vid of this race would be cool! The faster your going the easier it will be for your vette. A 60 roll on the highway would make him look silly.

sure seems that way. A10 makes those cars......but it was still a fbo m6 car vs a stock car.


moral of the story is if both are stock furd only has 2 yrs worth of stick cars that could outrun a stock gs ls3 car. That be a 13/14 gt500. All the rest are gt100 and you should have him covered. A 08 vert gt500 is likely a 13sec car.

I would say you got him, the 08 GT500 is not that fast in stock form IMO - Mods is a different story but stock vs stock - I say LS3 is quicker.

Post a video after the race if you can

first gen gt500s need a GREAT tire on the street. great hooking suspension etc. to still lose. a hero driver, perfect shifting, the exact right tires with suspension and the gt100 has a chance.

this 08 has none of that.

at the strip, when the gt100 was a new car in clarksville, mid 8's in the 1/8th mile. no pray of hooking it. the guy had a new gt500 and a new ford GT. he was in the car club i was in.

consider before everyone just **** on all gt100s....with a tire and suspension, with a car that runs near the top end of stock gt100s, it has 400rwtq at 2900 rpm. the tire and suspension freaks CAN run 12.0. on car will only pull 9 degrees of timing, while another 22. the cars varied a LOT on power output. 390/390 were common, and 425/427 happened also.

a few were fast. i've personally never seen a 07-09 near stock run well, but they can. i wish now, i had gotten the gt100 instead of the coyote. it would be a terbo lol.

I remember seeing 07s new at Cecil running low 13s. Huge disappoint since the 03 04 Cobras ran the same. Then the local shops couldn't get out of the 12s with them that whole year.
