    Default did a bone stock C7 just did a 1:54s at BW13 ?

    heard a rumor that a bone stock C7 (including run flat tires) just did a 1:54s.

    I have not seen anything definitive but cotton corners was faster after the repave. Still, 1:54 is moving on OEM run flats.

    Someone posted it up in the top 25 list. Not sure if the car is bone stock but it was on stock Michelin PSS tires. Sounds pretty fast to me. My friend who works at a Chevy dealership has owned and tracked just about every corvette over the years and he says the new Z51 is awesome. I've also heard the repave is worth about 2 seconds, but haven't been on it yet.

    Was on the fresh pavement too early before it got rubbered in, we were all going slower than the old pace... very curious to see how much faster the track is once it's 'broken in'. 1:54 is flying... it's crazy what cars are doing these days.

    I was thinking the C7 might appeal more to the porsche crowd. You know, $500 haircuts, shaved body, perfect tan, and soft hands that haven't seen a day of hard work.

    The Corvette and Porsche crowds are very different. Porsche - I spent tons of money on my beautiful piece of German engineering, and you are a useless twerp. I paid big money to have the nasty biatch next me in the passenger seat.

    Corvette - I'm an old guy with enough money to buy the dream car of my childhood, and I got my trophy wife next to me. I bought the convertible so she would have a bad hair day.

    2004 Honda S2000 AP2 6-MT - track day car
    2006 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution IX MR 6-MT - when I need a backseat, 4-doors, or a real trunk, and still want to haul ass . . .

    Do they race in Canada? I thought everyone just tied there. "You take the win, no you, no please pass me eh".

    j/k, that's awesome! That explains the really fast laps he's putting down.

    I spoke with him that day at the track. Said he had headers, alignment and from Platte Forme's FB post - Penske 2-ways.

    Fast time and great driving, Rif! Good meeting you at the track.

    What tires are stock?

    The C7 is an impressive car, I can see it going 5 seconds faster than I did on my NT05 equipped NSX on a slightly faster, repaved track (1-2 seconds?). Then that means a stock Z28 could do a 52!
