I like it.
HP/Weight ratio is rediculous.

I don't care too much for the hp/torque ratio, though. And the C6 headlights still irk me. They need a shiny backing or something.

Bah, nothing wrong with having more hp than torque. Just needs some deep gearing. :)

#5, how much hp/torque does your car have now (just wondering...)?

11-13-2004 @ 12:44:27 PM

#5, Yeah, but then you have to downshift two gears during the slightest incline.

Well, I mean I'm exaggerating. That's more like Honda S2000 territory. 475 ft. lbs. wouldn't require that, it's just less than I'd want in a 500 hp car. Then again, I've always been a little more of a Viper guy.

#7, Sure wouldn't catch me complaining about "only" having 475ft lbs in a car this light.

Looking good... I like those specs.

#4, yea, I don't feel the headlights at all. I cant get used to them either. I'd put aftermarkets on them.

There's gotta be SOMEONE trying to develop an aftermarket fliplight conversion kit out there... I HOPE there is...

Is there a special reason why the Z06 uses the more ugly rear-window instead of the coupe Version?

11-13-2004 @ 09:32:35 PM

#12, IIRC, the original Z06 Corvette (a special race-option version of the 2nd gen [1963-67]) was on the hardtop bodystyle also, so they're trying to have a little nod to the past or something.

I dunno, I like the hardtop body style...

#13, Thanks for the info... but I find it extremely ugly! Like smearing shit onto an already ugly ...like... roachcake or something! And I am drunk, which makes my english even worse and the Z06 too and... ah, well.

#14, A German... who's drunk. Gee, didn't see THAT one coming... :P
Next thing you know, I'll find a French person who smokes...

*runs from the Political Correctness police*

Just an interesting little sidenote... hatchbacks seem to be immensly popular in Europe, whereas sedan-bodystyles are exceedingly popular in America... maybe that's why you like the fastback design more? Just the culture in the area you grew up in? Or maybe I'm just talking out of my ass.

#16, *adjusts NASCAR hat, straightens out Davey Allison shirt, puts my keys with my NEXTEL Cup keychain in my pocket, puts down my NASCAR Preview and Press guide*

Y'all didn't miss anything. *spits on floor* :P

#15, I guess, its straight out of the poop-chute... (Meself iz learning da english from da porn-sites!)
Dont know... was in the Corvette NFS3 Racing-Team... loved that Bodystyle. Maybe its rooted deeper, though, compare the Cabin roofs of the WW2 Fighter planes, FW190 v. P51/P47. The american fighters look more Z06ish on their backs.

#18, Hahahaha...never thought about that... (the WWII planes)

#19, Its the same with the P51 as it is with the Corvette. First there was the normal version (P51B and C), the the performance Version (P51D), which was better, but the nice Coupe lines were lost.
