What year is the 'Vette? Is it an LT1 car or an LS1 car?

#3 is incredibly important! I have the prime example... My V6 vs a Mustang Shelby GT (no, not a GT500... a regular GT with some Shelby extras)



My V6 edges him out... 15.224 vs 15.226 (we were battling 25 MPH head winds with 32 MPH gusts!)

The guy with the Stang is a friend who just happened to totally blow his launch on that particular run... was lucking enough to have it on tape though!!! LOL

I'd say the guys playing you. The new Vette's come standard with 430 hp, from '05-'07 they had 400. Plus being 600 lbs lighter, and more aero dynamic, you really don't stand a chance if it's a C6, or a C5 for that matter.

Just have fun and don't bet anything. Especially if you happen to win the first time and then he wants a 2nd race.
