I'm curious - does anyone know why the ZL1 brake package can't be ordered with the 1LE while it seems to be available for the SS? Braking balance? Other conflict?

I don't think the Viper has been "point and shoot" since perhaps before the 2002 ACR. Before that the brakes were the weak point but it was still very quick around a road course.

Good to hear from someone that actually knows what they are talking about. It should clear up some of the rumor and speculation out there. Thanks for posting.

Point taken. Racing is full of could haves and would-be ideal laps. This said, look at the recently posted side-by-side. I think the Z/28 was up 10-12 seconds and perhaps rain / ZL1 top speed took...

It seems the Z/28 was up ~10-12 seconds and then either the rain / ZL1 power and lower downforce on the straight reduced the gap. Impressive. The final lap time isn't the whole story here.

My guess is the Z/28 pips the base C7 but not the C6Z around a track. C7 is ~400 lbs lighter and ~50 less horsepower (straight line slight edge to C7?) but the main factor will be tires, suspension...

3 second gap - with factory optioned tires. 1-2 second gap with the same tires. What's the big heartburn over comparing cars as they are delivered from the factory? Not a new concept.

On a related note... they put slicks on the Viper TA and it gained 3 seconds at MRLS over the P Zero Corsas. So if the Z/28 is all tire, the Torfeo must be one heck of a tire. In reality I suspect...

Who cares if the Z/28 is faster than the ZL1 or Z06 on the track. I guess it better be, right? That's it's purpose. Some ZL1 and Corvette owners need thicker skin IMO. If they made a track only Vette...

Last time I checked the C6 Z06 has lift and the Z/28 is going to have more downforce than the ZL1, so I'm not sure I can agree with the aero being perfect on the Z06. Less drag, perhaps, but less...
