Stock M3 DCT vs stock C6 vette

Has anyone ran one? Curious on the outcome.

Oh no. You realize that this thread will be filled with nothing but hate for corvettes and regardless of their performance the interior will be the major topic of discussion (even though you did not ask about that). Good luck!

When you say that; is it in favor of the M3 or vette?

the old C5 Z06 had the same HP/Tq as the current regular C6. That car was good for 12.5-12.6 1/4mile runs all day. The M3 looks like its good for 12.8-13.0.

the reality is

99% of C6 owners won't be able to row the gears fast enough to keep up with a DCT M3 but the Corvette should be faster. The LS2 C6 is marginally faster. The gearing advantage 'almost' negates the difference

"Most" LS2 C6 guys are high 12's low 13's@110-114 on regular tires at the track.

from a dig the M should win but from a roll the vette will take the M because of the torque.

I've owned both. Assuming driver in the Vette knows what he's doing, the LS3 Vette will win. Won't be a huge margin though....those cars are difficult to launch. Having said that, I prefer EVERYTHING about the M3 over the Vette.

I ran a stock c6 in both my Porsche and my m3 and I pulled away slowly in the Porsche but the vette was slightly faster than my dct m3 and it was an auto vette.

The m3 has huge mutliplication from gears so the vette does not have the "torque" as you say
Guys who own the DCT have chimed in with their real world losses, and we even have a guy who timed at 12.8, like I initially quoted. Hang it up brother.

The guy has a hard time understanding your point, just leave it be lol.

I think we have 2 people arguing separate points here. Think everyone knows that the vette is faster, but not that much and that is NOT torque that makes it faster but power 2 weight. I believe you are both arguing correct points just not seeing the differences in each others argument.

Is it that hard to proof read your own posts, or learn how to spell the most basic stuff correctly?

I could sit there, and borrow your multiplication tables, or I could just simply look at what a bone stock 10 year old car can do:

I guess we have different definitions of automobiles. I consider the m3 and vette to be sports cars, but only the vette to be a bargain super car
