Ah, that would explain it. Not sure that's even useful, but made for a cool graphic.

3 seconds a lap is a lifetime, I'm with ya there.

Putting the power down earlier allows for the 3 second per lap advantage. Yes 3 seconds at speed is forever.

I'm not sure what thread a question was raised regarding the Z06 changes, but here's some 2017 Z06 pictures.

At the drag strip 100ths win races so yes 10ths certainly matter, but car A running 10.80 and car B running 10.90 are still 10 second cars and both are hauling ass at the end of the day. I use the same logic for everyday screwing around that it's not a huge difference until you get in to the 5/10 range, then there's a marked difference in the two cars' performance, setup, driver skill, or all of the above. Pro drivers will certainly disagree with me, however, and I accept that we can both be technically "right" depending on the scenario being discussed (racing vs. playing).

I was noticing the sector times and the cars were tenths a part through an entire sector. Admittedly I'm not a road course guy so I will concede I could very well be talking out of my ass but that seems pretty close to me? I do want to get my 2SS out on the Corvette track a time or two this fall though, so I can actually have some experience. I've been on a road course, but only a time or two (did the Dodge driving school thing at Road ATL).

I do agree a 3 second per lap difference is A LOT. I also noticed the former ZL1 was in the top three of all the cars tested and the two that beat the ZL1 were 4 times the price +. Credit due there for sure.

I am curious what I missed...... why the sector time differences add up to 1.3 seconds (still a lot) and the overall lap time difference was 3.1 in that link?
If you are referring to the 5G ZL1 it had a 1.9 not a 2.3L supercharger. But I do agree that the 1.7 is way too small. It has to spin faster and we all know that creates heat. A 2.3 could produce the same HP with less boost. Maybe they where looking at packaging.

Where are these pictures from? I haven't seen them anywhere else.

Very cool to see the better cooling solution in the z06 too!

Also I wish the "Ranger z06" corvette guy would set m6 1/4 times with the new zl1 too!

Taken at Corvettes at Carlisle in PA. GM brought a good number of Corvettes.

Yes they also added larger and extra radiators to the Z06 like the Grand Sport.

As well as a new top lid that moves the bricks higher in the manifold. Also new bricks as well. It is said that all 16 and up Corvettes will be retrofitted.

I wish ZL1 was offered in that color - "Black Rose Metallic" Gorgeous.

No way GM is going to drop 10's of millions to retrofit existing cars. Not something they do unless it's a safety issue and that's been questionable up until recently.

^^^ I agree. They might offer the parts to retrofit, but they're not paying for it.

P.S. Dang Bucknut your C7 looks like a monster. Any times?
