The C7 Z06 & ZR1 were Monumental disappointments... they were 500 pounds too heavy, and very underdeveloped. GM had a golden opportunity to right a lot of wrongs with the 5th and 6th generation, they really ****ed up

The Z06 is about 100 pounds lighter than the zr1. And the Chevy didnt really f up with the z06, I mean, it does a 22.3 sec figure 8 lap and it ran 1:25.00 around willow springs. That’s insane. However, the zr1 is kind of too heavy. 3650 pounds. It does 22.7 sec figure 8. The low wing zr1 does a 1:24.85 willow springs. Just 0.15 sec better than the z06, and it costs wayy more and has wayy more powe. The high wing zr1 does 1:23.7, which is good, but compared to other supercars of 2018, it is kind of lacking. And 1:32.46 around Laguna seca with the high wing zr1? COME ON!!! Why is it slower than a 488? That’s just messed up.

Lmao. No way does the Z06 get a free pass. It’s even worst than the ZR1. Yes it ran a 1:25 at big willow, Except it actually only ran a 1:27.1 when it ran against the Nismo GTR. Then Chevy retuned the camber/suspension and reran the vette at 1:25. Then the car ran a 1:38.7 at Laguna Seca due to overheating...
The Z06 really hurt the Vette being the laughing stalk. GM was always so proud and saying that they wouldn’t void your warranty if you tracked your car because it was built for it... how does a car built for the track overheat with just 2 laps of pushing?

Nobody wants to say it but the new Z06 and ZR1 are a big let down compared with their predecessors we just wanted them to be awesome but they are just good enough compared with their competitors and expected performance considering the time lapse they took them to come out

I’ve been saying that for a while. The last generation was so much more impressive. The best C7 is the grandsport. I would say that the base Z51 pack is the best for daily since it isn’t as wide, but it doesn’t come with the magnetic ride like the GS does... had I lived in the states I would have bought one in a heart beat

Think about it, the C6 Z06 with just 505hp and no aero was just 2 seconds slower. SMH what’s up with the ZR1

The ZR1 has to much power and torque to effectively put the power down in lower speed corners. I surprised they never game any model of the C7 4 wheel steering.

Dunno, Seems like all they did just judging from the laptimes is just add power n put a body kit on it....It has more DF then a ZO6, But honestly you cant tell from the laptimes, The ZO6 is amazing in laptimes damn near destroying everything, And people expected this to do the same, But a half second difference on here? Now usually i take LS lap times similar to Ring laptimes because of the big differences in lap times with the cars, But again, ONLY half a second? I mean half a second is what an extra 40k plus gets you? And a full second from a 2012 ZR1?..

On another note, The Performante had an excellent showing, Beat the P1 which is fantastic.

In comparison look how much quicker he Viper ACR was despite no extra power.

I watched the motortrend video of it. That's basically what they are saying. The downforce does not have to much affect at lower speeds. Due to a bigger supercharger than the Z06 the car has a higher center of gravity. Also it has major issues putting the power to the ground.
