M3 Sedan vs Corvette 02

I raced a corvette the other day I really was trying but I could not keep up that thing was a beast. It was from 60 to 145 mph and I was about 10 cars away from him I though I would beat it.

Keep in mind Vettes are VERY easy to mod for WAY more power......add a supercharger and 600hp is nothing

you even cant see mods but if the vette beat your m3( i guess full throttle after break-in) it was modded or a Z.

stock E9X M3 has identical time as C6 in 0-150mph.

either the car was modded or you were in 14th gear.

you probably raced one with a pro-charger, easy mod for the vettes, 550 hp easily on very low psi.

My friend has a stock 2004 C5 Z06 it is no doubt faster than the E90 M3 I road in. His C5 pulls about twice as hard as the E90 M3 I rode in.

C5 Z06's have a lot of toque and only weight around 3200lbs.
And one of my other friends had a C5 Z06 with a procharger, game over. He beat GSXR's.

I raced a Dale E. Edition Camaro SS (same motor as that car you raced), the car was chipped, heads, headers, exhaust, intake, and geared, I beat it by 2 car lengths, that car you raced probably had forced induction, supercharged...etc, remember, the vette owners can mod their car a little cheaper than a M

how did you know it had all that in mods? i've NEVER heard of any ls1 being chipped. I don't even think that exists?

and FWIW doing heads without doing cam is almost useless

same power, more torque, 500+ lbs lighter...
the engine is 40% larger

it's not surprising...
but 10 car lengths sound like too much
