those brakes and any tire you put on those stock wheels is not keeping up with the weight/engine after 3 laps.

^I'll bet good money the hellcat will overheat on a road course.

I want a Z06 so I can be a parking lot pimp.

^^SRT says otherwise. But as crim mentioned, I'm pretty sure the brakes will be a hot smouldering mess long before the engine succumbs.

srt does otherwise.

the simple street racers have already found c7s go into limp mode way before the hellcat does

With all fairness the hellcat is a huge rolling brick with plenty of frontal area for cooling, while the Z06 is a parking lot pimping, manaical looking, missile shaped pimp with small grill openings.

When these things get cheap I'm getting a black one.

The only car I've seen on the road that makes me drool as much as the Z06 is a Black on Black Z28


Z28 is parking lot pimping on a new level.

he's got bowtie on the brain man... he can't help it.


the real thing is the hemi head (or pent roof) really does reduce the chance of knock on a blown engine.

i'm just sayin...

Otherwise these two engines are similar in displacement, even aspect bore/stroke. heads flow similar.


the 1.7 liter blower on the vette vs the 2.4 liter on the mopar also would make a huge difference in heat.

I guess the kind of dumbass that loses control of a car that easily in a straight line hangs out with the kind of dumbass who holds his phone straight vertically to shoot a video.

[Edited on May 23, 2015 at 12:33 AM. Reason : let alone that he'd have to disable stability control, for no reason, and then fuck it all away]

Don’t they have a stability control mode that lets you burn out but keep stability engaged? I remember the C5 z06 had a comp. mode stability mode that’d let you do shenanigans but still be engaged? Or am I mistaken?

Speaking of vertical video, why the fuck has no one fixed it so that widescreen is the default recording mode no matter what way you hold your phone? Seems like it would be something that could easily be switched over in settings if you really wanted a vertical video option.
