I work at this small mechanics shop in hattiesburg ms and today we were just chillin at the shop and in rolls this vette... its nice and silver with some 345 goodrich tires on the back i was like hmmm. i thought about callin him out in my 13 sec gt until we got it up on the lift and i started talkin to him... all he wanted done was an exhaust hanger welded up. well come to find out its a damn 1000rwhp Corvette Lingenfelter..... he took the badges off of it so it would look like a regular z06... i was like WTF! it has a 3tune chip... first tune i think was 500. second tune was 780 and the third tune was 980.. all of these tunes are pump gas... it was twin turboed but it was sweet cuz the turbos were under the car and when it was cranked you couldn't hear them until almost full throttle... it ran a 10.8 yesterday on the 780 tune...

he does need the driver because a c6 z06 can run those times with just drag radials. but i can understand it might be hard catching traction with that much power.

I personally love the older vettes and some of the newer ones too. I just don't like some of the people that drive Vettes. Have to say though one of the highlights in my life was smoking this kid I went to school with in his daddy's vette. Guess you can have all of the horsepower and suspension work you want, but if you can't drive it doesn't mean ****. I'm not what you would call a great driver by any means, but he was probably the worst. LOL!

lol even if his car was bone stock it would have killed you!! never try to race a corvette with a mid 13 second GT. ESPECIALLY a zo6!

What would a '00 convert. 6spd run in the 1/4? That was what that kid's dad owned. It was all stock except for exhaust.

thats cool man, yeah my car gets off the line a little better than my dad's vette does but with those 345's it might be a little different. your story reminds me of a time i went to spokane for a trapshooting competition. there was an 81 year old guy there with an 06 zo6, and he raced it weekly. he said he takes his car up to 185 on the straight stretch!! crazy!

yeah, stock LS1, with Corsa exhaust. It probably would have handed me my ass if he could drive. I had only a 4.10, diablo, flows, and a CAI on my Mach he probably had 75- 100 hp on me. Not to mention his stock suspension is better , he had bigger tires than me. He should been able to rape me.
