Smoked a C6 Corvette Convertible


New member
Oh man it was glorious. Made a left turn with a Corvette right behind me on a long back road with a single lane. I took off and got the jump, he was trying to catch up and hang but he couldent catch me. I started braking due to a car in front of me and I was at 4,000 rpms in sixth gear. Cant remember how fast but I enjoyed seeing him get stuck at the red light way behind me.

Its all about the Micheline summer rubber and nuespeed rims yo!



former GTI owner
...and probably didn't care

You pulling away from a car, that you're already in front of, isn't really a race btw

Oh he cared, I think I was in 4rd gear shifting into 5th and he got maybe up to a car length behind me. After that he dropped off, was hilarious. No it was not a side by side race but we were both playing around. Cmon guys it was fun either way! ill take what I can get while im out delivering food for grubhub haha!

Also he was revving his engine at the light behind me so... yeah... part of the reason I just took off fast as I could.


Ready to race!
Well, typically when I do dumb shit like this and only have one lane I will (if I can) get close enough to the guy in front of me I will. Just to let him know i would pass if we were side by side. I had a guy in a GTI almost run his car up my ass, gave me a bit to take off down the highway and he came out of the back 40

I'm imagining there's some unsuspecting C6 driver that was on a casual cruise wondering why a VW hatchback just randomly started racing by himself down a one-lane road. :laugh:

Seriously though, C6 Corvettes - even LS2 era ones are capable of mid-12s bone stock. Once they hit the LS3, they were capable of low 12s/high 11s. Granted this is all straight line stuff, so there's not a whole lot of driving skill required to mash the gas and they would easily beat our cars. On a road course though, driving skill can level the playing field a little. I have a good friend with a Z-51 LS3 C6 and we are pretty evenly matched in the turns...he will leave me in the straights though.
