ZL1 loss

I have a buddy who just picked up a Zl1 , him and another friend with a 2011 Shelby made runs today on a closed course
The ZL1 was absolutely raped, aprox 5 car length loss , different races, digs, rolls, the results were the same run after run, they even switched cars for a similar result, maybe 3 car length loss by Zl1 with drivers changed

Shelby is bone stock

Zl1 is M6, bone stock, aprox 2300 miles (was bought out of state but he claims he broke it in according to manual)

disappointing results :(

Well if both cars were actually 100% stock, then I guess that's unfortunate. But it's not like I'm going to cancel my order...

I dont believe it honestly... the GT500 is not even in the same class as the Z (atleast not anymore)

I agree , I still love the car and would love to have one but I am shocked, I expected so much more, I really hate to admit it but things are going to get ugly fast when the 13's come out

This was on an offical 1/4 mile track? Or a "closed course" as in people keeping lookout on both ends of a 1/4 mile section of road?

I believe it happened, but I don't believe that the GT500 was stock after 2 yrs of having it I'm sure it would at least have a pully upgrade or something

Not really surprising with how much the ZL1 weighs. I am not sure why you guys are surprised either

Im being unbiased but the GT500 is slower and has a horrible rear end and suspension... the Z wins in every category even power to weight ratio... thats why I dont believe it
