Driving the "other" car lately has been an experiance. Between the peace signs and people asking to buy the car at stoplights (I'm not BSing) I've been stalked by just about every brand of car around.
The other day, I was leaving on my lunch hour and a guy in a HMMWV stopped me and lets me know all about how slow the 5.0 was, and if I wanted to race him. He preceded to tell me that he had a Supra "turbo" yada yada yada. I told him that I was pretty easy to find, and if his wife would let him borrow her car I would run him.

Notice I didnt say in what I would run him in. The look on his face should be real precious when the Z comes loping up beside him :)

Anyway, .........there will be more to follow

hehehe, (embarassed) it sure felt faster.

Seriously though, I dont think so. Especially not after I get the Z bolted back together this time.

Both cars have been ran at the same track, differant weather conditions, differant tires, but the same sh$tty driver.

2001 1/8 times
Z28 - 8.93 @ 79.?? mph on nittos in 95 deg weather
5.0 - 9.6? @ 75.?? mph on GSC's in 70 deg weather
(got romped pretty bad by a northstar caddy on that one)

To be fair, the 5.0 had no way to come out of the hole on street tires/4.10s and being down on hp compared to the Z, it would have been game over before the 60'. I have to wait for next season to see what real slicks and 5k launches do :)
