From a roll from say 20-140 I don't think any street legal car has a chance against a 600cc modern sportbike. A 2003 Yamaha R1(1000cc) will do 0-60 in 2.3 seconds with a good rider. and the cars we are talking about are 4.5-5.0 second's 0-60.
I have ridden shot gun in an 88 IROC-Z Camaro (not a yota, but still) Beat 2 busa's, a R6, but it did loose to a busa with spray, and it was about 2 feet in the 1/4.

If my response was too harsh I'm sorry. For hopefully the final time I love the Corvette. I just stated in the beginning of this thread that I hope they don't put a weak power plant in the upcoming C6. I stated that I would like to see 500 or more HP. I was then bashed as a Corvette hater just because I wanted to see more HP and pointed that the Viper has it beat.. for now.

Take care;
Roby
Nice car, sorry I read your last response wrong.

The only way in hell that any IROC or import is going to beat a busa (or any modern sport bike for that matter) is if the guy on the bike stalls it at the line! Yes, there are "drag" cars that can match these bikes in acceleration, but VERY FEW STREET DRIVEN CARS with street tires. I have a heavily modified 3.6 turbo Porsche that won't even come close to staying with these bikes after they are moving. I've driven 750 hp Porsche 935's that weight less than 2200 lbs and even these cars still cant match the acceleration of the fastest sport bikes. And yes, I've spent plenty of time and money with the guys at Turbo Performance Center to know what heavily boosted Supras will do. Please show me these IROCS and imports that will consistently run 9 second or less 1/4 mile times that are street legal daily drivers running street tires. Assuming the guy riding the bike knows what he's doing there are very few street legal cars with street legal tires that can touch these bikes in acceleration!

August 1st, issue Car and Driver, 2002 405 HP Zo6
=0-60= 3.9 seconds
=1/4 mile time=12.4 seconds at 116 mph.

Motror trend may 2003 2003 mustang cobra, vs 2003 C5 (both convertibles)
Corvette(with 45 HP less than the Cobra)
=0-60=4.72 seconds
=1/4 mile=13.02 seconds @109.59 mph

Mustang Cobra(390 Hp)
=0-60=13.12
=1/4 mile [email protected]

Corvette z06(385 hp) vs Viper ACR vs Cobra R
Cobra R (price $55,000)
0-60 in 5.4 and 1/4 mile time of 13.4 @116mph

Viper ACR (price $86,000)
0-60 in 4.3 seconds and 1/4 mile time of 12.4 at 120 mph

Corvette Z06 (PRICE $ 48,500)
0-60 in 4.4 seconds and 1/4 mile at 13.0 seconds at 116 mph
LAP TIME WAS 1 SECOND FASTER THAN THE MUSTANG AND 2 SECONDS FASTER THAN THE VIPER.

02 corvette 0-60 at 3.9 seconds, if thats not a fast car in your book, thaen maybe you need to re-write it.

My buddy has a Z06 run Englishtown Raceway every wed. He got thrown out for consistently running under 12. I got the video (wmv) of him running under 12 and smoking a viper.

Scroll up to post 46 and click the link, then come tell us what you saw. I have more where that came from.

That video looks like something I saw one night in the skies over Roswell, New Mexico. Doesn't anybody street race during the day any more? All kidding aside just about any magazine I have ever read where they did a shoot-out between sports cars puts the Corvette up front because of value. It does not do everything perfect and is not the tops in every category. But it is at or near the top in all categories and when you consider price, which most of us have to, it wins hands down. Now if they could just get rid of some of that cheap plastic shizzit on the interior.....
