You guys need to relax in regards to the M6 having a passenger. If it were to make a difference, it would have made a 1 car difference AT MAX. The M6 would have still been quite a bit behind. Just watch the video.

Either way, I give the M6 much props, but guys, come on, quit the whining..lol

For every 100 pounds you lose 1/10th of a second in the 1/4 mile..

Congaman, from a 50 Km/h start (30 mph), were you in 1st gear or 2nd gear?

By 250 kmph, could be even more (maybe like 2 cars). Take a look at the video of the M5 vs. M6. The M6 pulls 3+ cars on the M5 with approx. 250 lb. weight adavantage. But true M6 would still be behind. And either which way you cut it.......The ZO6 is blistering fast.

Just saying the playing field needs to be even.

I don't see a lightly modded M6 making up 5 cars, Gustav. Why don't you agree with that? Just curious.
