Here's my 2009 LS3 6 speed Z51 Corvette (since sold).

I bet that would have run 14s, too, if I either bogged it or over-revved it at launch. (But either way, trap speed (116 MPH or so) would be...

You miss the point entirely.

This forum is packed full of people claiming they routinely "beat" G35s, G37s, 2010 Mustang GTs, etc. IN A STRAIGHT LINE.
