These are real questions I honestly dont know.
The ZR1 gears are closer than the Z06 or ZL1. The ZR1 6 gear redlines at 215 mph. But if you watch the video he decided to stay at the top of 5th at about 6400-6500 rpm if I remember correctly, not shifting to 6 gear. I don't blame him cause the ride was not exactly smooth, I wouldn't want to go faster either without more downforce. It make you wonder what a ZR1 would do with front spliters and a fix rear wing like both the Viper ACR and that special edition LFA had.
