Imagine what the Z06 could do with DCT but no, GM has to stick to old WW2 Tranny...
I don't actually give a damn either, but what fusionchicken was saying is that, if the driver of that Z06 (against the M5) could shift as quickly as the driver of the Z06 that raced the M6 Cabrio, that Z06 would've pulled comfortably away from the M5.
Still, the fact that a big, luxurious comfy sedan (or coupe, in the case of the M6) can run close to a Z06 is worthy of a big thumbs up, in my opinion.
