your playing with physics here, think about it is. they have basically the EXACT same drag coefficient. Then you have a car with another 100+ rwhp/rwtq and then you take the advantage away from the weight distribution of the Z06 because the cars are already rolling which then is a difference of gearing/power. The GT500 is more powerful and the weight to HP ratio is then a non factor.
