    Default TommyMilner sub-1:30 around Road Atlanta in the C7 Z06

    I don't know Road Atlanta. What are some of the respectable times around that course in ST2, T1 and GT2 race cars?

    What's he doing at 3,000 rpm with 8 gears? Too much torque for the tires if he downshifts?

    Yes. Looking at those lap times the stock C7 Z06 is right between T1 times set by a pro racer and the GT2 time of someone I don't know. That is pretty damn quick for a car you can go pick up off the lot at your Chevy dealer.

    The real question is what kind of lap time would a C6Z06 do with those wheels and tires.

    And the manual gearbox, the only transmission available in a C6 Z06 . . .
