Predict the Z/28 EPA Fuel Economy Numbers
 
Ok, tongue in cheek, but as Mikamaro's thread opines it's quiet in here and that's the only thing no has given a crap about or discussed until the horse stopped breathing.

I vote 12/18

LOL

rebelyell22 10-24-2013 07:08 PM

My guess is 16/21

90503 10-24-2013 07:14 PM

15/24 I think. But that is a much lighter and much more aerodynamic car.

shaffe 10-24-2013 09:00 PM

12 & 18 sounds right

45thCamaro 10-24-2013 09:39 PM

That is a good question, to be honest, I figured that a track only car wouldn't have this info listed lol

ZWA SS 10-25-2013 02:43 AM

12&21

I think anything below 10,000 pound GVW has to have numbers.

That would be my guess.

7 liter motor burns a ton of fuel even at idle verse a 6.2 liter motor. Also watch the video of the run at The Ring. Car looks to be topping out at a little over 160 mph (166ish) on the final straight. (For as long as they ran at that speed I would guess they would have gone up another gear if they had one) That to me looks like the sixth gear is setup to be not that much of an overdrive. (Makes sense on a track car.) With low close ratio gearing inside the trans coupled with a 3.91 final set my guess is the motor will be turning some major revs at highway speeds. So my guess is fuel mileage is going to suck but track car so who cares. :thumbsup:

LOL

14/23

6th gear is talllllllll.....;-)

Z06 was rated at xx/24....and no way it gets poorer fuel economy than the ZL1. Power = gas = fuel economy.

2cnd chance 10-25-2013 02:11 PM

Isn't the trans and rear gearing the same as the 1LE? If so the only difference is the 376 vs 427, with maybe a little extra tire and down-force added.

I believe so. Tran just posted specs of the gearing. If I recall correctly 6th gear is 0.5
