    More like C6 12.6, Roush 427 13.5. Thats with good drivers in both.

    Hey guys im new here... just wanted to through in there i have a stock 06 m6 GTO and beat a 07 stg 3 roush. It was on the road and from a roll. Granted it was only by about a quarter of a car, but a win is a win. So i think it comes down to all driver!!

    According to you the Roush 427 weighs 4450lb., Ive only seen them weigh 3500lb., which is about 1200lb. more than the C6. If thats the case, how can the Mustang be a few tenths of a scecond slower than the C6 when the C6 has more power? That is if we are talking about the '08.

    the 427 will run faster than a 13.5..
    the stg 1 goes 13.6 and its 330 hp or whatever..

    obvouisly what you said....if the c6 has more power it would win....but the c6 wouldnt run a 12.6 to the roush 13.5...


    i think the c6 would win but im thinking that it is closer than what u are saying...
    no ive never driven one...buti think it would be a good race..

    The C6's are solid mid 12 second cars stock. I don't see how a car with less power and more weight coming close to that. Then again that's why we race, in the real world #s on paper don't mean jack shit.

    The C6 has more power and according to you with the weight of the Roush, the C6 weighs a hell of a lot less than the Mustang. Besides traction, its all about hp to weight ratio of a car.

    Let me ask you this, lets say both cars have the exact same engine and have 430hp in both but both keep the same weight, C6 with 3200lb, and Roush with "4400lb", do you think they are going to tie? From what you have been saying, thats what you are thinking.

    I torched a 427R with the C5 Z06 in my sig. We went from a dig twice and from 45,55,65, & 75mph rolls. The closest races were from a dig and I took him by 3-4 cars on first and 4-5 cars on second run. Above 130 I pulled busses. Equal drivers C6 wins every time!

    C5 Z06 is only 405 hp. In the quarter it would be more like the C6 by at lease four tenths. I sold my 03' and bought an 02' beast.

    As oppsoed to what? A regular vette? z06 comes with more hp than the regular vettes. Oh and the Roush is not 4400lbs, thats prob the max weight it can hold. Its a 3500ish lb vehicle.

    High horsepower with low weight just means you get a fast car. Plus the Vette has great gearing combos.

    Here is a video of the 427, you have to watch this pathetic driver trying to get some qaurter mile times. The last run he gets beat bad by a LS1. I could get much better qaurter times than this guy even with a trunk full of sand bags.

    Ya the C6 would win every time, and for the money, I would rather have a C6, even a pre 08 version. IMO

    I'd say the C6 would win. I drove the shit out of a LS2 Z51 vette and it really hooked up good. It would rip the tires in 2nd nice, and I don't think 30 HP would kill the traction by much. Unless you stupidly launch the C6 from to much RPM the C6 should win from the line or roll.

    the vette would hook better on a road couse or a strip better than the mustang

    have u ever drove a 427
    up until 2 years ago, i owned a C5, six speed.
    if i got a good launch, its would basicly hook right away.
