1993 Corvette LT-1 Convertible

My buddy (the one with the 1977 Corvette) just picked up a 1993 Corvette with a 6sp manual. He wants to run me for fun. Looking at the specs, I have roughly 120-130hp more, but he's about 700lbs lighter. I think it would be a good match, but I should have him. Thoughts?

Here's his:

You should win. Those cars with an auto back then with superior traction were high 13 second cars on average. There mph was around 100 - 102. The only thing you would have to worry about in the c4 generation would be the 1996 if it was a Grand Sport edition or a 6-speed manual because they had the LT4. I think you will be just fine weight difference or not. The LT1's felt torquey, but would fall on there face in the upper rpm range.

No, it's the base car if you look at the pic. A ZR-1 would be pretty sweet.....


Thanks all!

I knew what you meant.

I agree with the C4 ZR-1 owners that felt gyped when they added the squared off tail lights on the regular Corvettes. It lost all specialness from the outside.

Lol

I did whoop a Mazdaspeed 6 so far. And today a Rustang convertible going the other way did the slow down and rev nonsense.

The Hemi Challenger guy I work with hasn't been around lately. I think I can actually run this Vette. I'm fairly confident I have it as my car sits, let alone after the headers.

Stock, the LT1 Corvettes ran mid 13's in the 1/4 mile.

Being a convertible, he has an additional brace under the car that adds a bit of weight. With the ZF6 he has the Dana 44 rear end with 3:45 gears.

You should pull away at the top end pretty well, I would think. His only true advantage is aero, but it's not enough.

Instinctively, I have to take the Chevy in that match up.


I'm not sure how good my buddy is with the stick. I'd be more worried if his car was an automatic.
