Sorry Mr. Vroom, you've lost me with that comment. What exactly do you mean? :dunno:
Bad launches on both cars, slow shifts, misshifts, pinging the limiter... it didn't look like he wasn't taking the assignment too seriously, and the bias was clearly with the GT2, which no doubt, is the better car..but even so, the Z06 is not the dog they portrayed it to be!

:cheers:

He drove both cars in the same way so it seems to me the test was fair as getting those numbers he got.
I would say that is not correct. The rear weight bias of the rear engine platform is an advantage when you have sloppy/terrible technique shifting. The launch control also helped the GT2 alot. You have less of a margin for error to get the best possible times for the traction limited Z06. The GT2 is faster....just not by the ridiculous margin shown.

i test drove a Z06 a couple weeks ago, and i had a hard time shifting as well. Now, i'm not pretending to be the best driver in the world, but i never had such a hard time with a manual before (at least on an "espensive")... There is something twitchy about this grid...
