I know, I know, start a fire under the ZL-1 kill it with heat soak and then the G8 would win.

585 hp vs 415 hp on the same platform with the same weight (give or take) = ZL1 win.

looking at track times, i figured it'd be a little closer than the facepalms might suggest.

ok, so stock ls3's a no-go. cam and tires?

cut me some slack here, i'm ****ing LSx retarded. the big weight advantage plus tires seems like it could've been a good race. just bench racing here. and do me a favor, let's not refer to manufacturer hp ratings. i think we all know how accurate those are in the real world (especially when boost is involved)

ZL1 should smoke it, BUT look at the times posted by real drivers. If the G8 can run 13's, it could very well win. There's a big difference between what Chevy says the car will run, and what it's actually running.

that's what i'm saying. sure, low-12's have been had in a stock ZL1 but most of the time it's in the mid-12's. the G8 is a 13-even car stock, so how much would it really take to put it into the mid-12's (ZL1 territory).

Find me someone who's run 13 flat in a G8 bone stock. What GM says and real world numbers are totally different things.

A well driven bone stock GXP on radials will run high 12s. An average driver will drive a ZL1 to mid-to-low 12s blowing the stock tires off.

Looks like Motortrend got: 13.0 sec @ 109.6 mph

http://www.motortrend.com/roadtests/...t/viewall.html

There's a difference between mag times and what real drivers are going to get the first time they go to the track, though. I doubt an inexperienced driver would be able to pull off a time like that without some practice.

Why not just do a ZL1 VS prius thread. The result would be the same. Asswhoop'en either way.

If the ZL1 is stick with an average driver the G8 has a reasonable chance.
