I love the McLaren, but I completely agree with BR2. There's a lot that goes into a sports cars & making good lap times.... plus, a 1:34.50 @ LagunaSeca is nothing to scoff at! Well done!

Its a mix of everything that make the car go fast, your not just gonna go fast with good tyres. The big great brakes, the good manual tranny, a lightweight body, good power range, good aerodynamics, its PTM magnetic ride. Really tired of people commenting on tyres, again, as ive said it before, NO one Ever commented on the tyres when the ZO6 was being compared to a Scud or a GT2 or anyform of similiar car, so why know? Honestly, its getting old.

And why shouldn it be faster? because the MP4 is lighter and has more Power? Power to weight ratio isnt what it used to be, Might as well mean Shite nowadays, not with all these electronic advancements in technology coming off the lines.

When looking at a Chevrolet Corvette, A Porsche 911, Or a Nissan GT-R, theres no such words as "They Shouldnt Be" Its "They Are" and "Have Been"

It shouldn't be faster than the Mclaren though. Mclaren has a much better power to weight ratio and a MUCH master dct gearbox. This is confusing. Do those PSC tires on the ZO6 make that much of a difference? And the Magnetic ride is great but the Mclaren has some great suspension too so that cancels it out. Its the tires i tell you :P

Z06 Centennial edition with PSC tires is an extremely quick car ;)
With new magnetic ride, and some stuff from the ZR1 in a much lighter body.
