1972 Corvette ZR1 Coupe For Sale in Texas(Mar 03, 2014)The 425HP is using the old scale. So that's why I said it would be about 390HP by today's SAE standards.
Also yeah 14.7 is what it was clocked at. However that's also on tires from the 70's I would love to see what it would do on modern slicks
1972 Corvette ZR1 Coupe For Sale in Texas(Mar 02, 2014)Sorry for the 3rd post. Doing some research the NHRA dynoed a 1970 ZR1 (same motor) and it dynoed at 425hp at 6200rpm. So by today's standards it's probably about 390 give or take
1972 Corvette ZR1 Coupe For Sale in Texas(Mar 02, 2014)By today's standards my GUESS is this was putting out around 400hp. However that's only a guess from someone who's been around muscle cars both stock and modded for a good amount of time
1972 Corvette ZR1 Coupe For Sale in Texas(Mar 02, 2014)While your about right Michael, you can't go by what the factory specs state. Everything was very underrated back in those days. Some cars were underrated by almost 100hp.
First BMW M4 Rolls off the Line(Feb 28, 2014)I wouldn't say you get more for your money. Many of the features in this BMW are also in the Vette. Also the C7 will beat this on any track.
However I agree that those two cars have next to nothing in common and shouldn't be compared.
First BMW M4 Rolls off the Line(Feb 28, 2014)I don't like BMWs.. Never have. I like them even less without the V8 now. I would take a Caddy, Merc, or Lexus of equal value any day over the M3/4 now
Texas Firefighters Rescue $2.5M Car Collection(Feb 26, 2014)Been a first responder for nearly 8 years. If I personally didn't feel that moving the cars out of harms way would endanger me or my crew, I would do the same. Good on these guys to save pieces of history
Watch the Hennessey Venom GT Hit 270 MPH(Feb 25, 2014)*munches on popcorn*
This is going to get good.
Side note: Sam... Firearms are not just for southerners. I live very close to NYC and am the biggest supporter of the 2nd amendment you will ever find.
Also, on topic: 'Merica
Leno Drives Pete Brock's Re-Engineered Daytona Coupe(Feb 21, 2014)Only thing I'm surprised about at this point is he hasn't stopped due to boredom because everyone has made it so easy. Ignore his comments and he will go away. I'm kinda tired of people just feeding into it on every damn topic
Rinspeed Unveils Tesla Model S-Based XchangE Autonomous Car(Feb 19, 2014)Guys, He is trolling.. Just to get a rise out of everyone. The less you argue with him the better. Just ignore his comments. If you respond, your just giving him what he wants. He doesn't give a crap about what you say. He's doing it for laughs
36,000HP Jet-Powered Truck Can Hit 400 MPH(Feb 19, 2014)Swag, I'm as American as they come. Your comments annoyed me for like the first week... Then people's reaction to your extremely obvious trolling started to annoy me more.
36,000HP Jet-Powered Truck Can Hit 400 MPH(Feb 19, 2014)I can't understand why carbuzz won't ban him. He obviously has annoyed many people, but if you guys stop getting upset over stupid comments he will stop sooner or later.
36,000HP Jet-Powered Truck Can Hit 400 MPH(Feb 19, 2014)For once I agree with eion. People he is just trolling to get a rise out of everyone because he can. Stop getting upset at his comments, he's just doing it for a joke. He has yolo in his name for gods sake!
This is the First Mustang Ever Sold(Feb 18, 2014)Guys... You realize he is obviously trolling just to get a rise out of people. He had YOLO in his name for gods sake!!! Just ignore his comments and he will stop sooner or later
This is the First Mustang Ever Sold(Feb 18, 2014)Drives me crazy when people's me complaints about the articles. If you read it somewhere else, why bother reading this topic? Your not the center of the world. Other people might not of seen it yet.
BMW Heading Forward with FWD-Only Models(Feb 14, 2014)I don't care for BMW at all, but I don see how this is a bad thing for them. They aren't replacing rwd, just adding fwd. That will probably make it more appealing to a wider audience of people
Does Cadillac Think Europeans Are Lazy?(Feb 09, 2014)Personally I don't think you should be able to comment on US politics or on its citizens unless you actually live in the US and deal with them on a daily basis.
This conversation isn't going to go anywhere
Broken Corvette Stingray Could Be a Bargain(Feb 03, 2014)You use no facts to support your argument (cause you don't have an argument... Just saying ugly isn't an argument). Educationally state your opinion with respect to people who may like it. Then you will get respect back.
I shouldn't even bother
Broken Corvette Stingray Could Be a Bargain(Feb 03, 2014)It's not cause it's your opinion dumb dumb.
It's the way you say it. It's cause you don't explain why you think what you do. Its disrespectful to what people like and It makes it obvious that you only do it to piss people off
Chevy Pickup Runs 8.07 Quarter-Mile, Sets New Record(Jan 24, 2014)Emajd, if you think you can do better make your own app.
Seriously people, it's a FREE app for us to enjoy. Sure, some errors are made every so often but your not paying for anything and they get the point across.
1967 Corvette Fetches World Record $3.5 Million at Auction(Jan 20, 2014)*facepalm* common really guys... It was a financial investment. As I said on the other page, the car will continue to go up in value. It won't be driven. Probably put in a museum for awhile and then sold for a major profit
Cadillac Boss is Rooting for Lincoln(Jan 20, 2014)Being a big Cadillac fan, I'll agree with you Alex. If Lincoln somehow catches up... I don't think caddy will be saying they are rooting for them lol. For now though, it's a nice gesture
These Are the 2015 Corvette Z06's Dirty Secrets(Jan 15, 2014)First it's "American cars get crap HP per liter! Omgzzz!" (Which doesn't mean crap)
Now "why do they need so much power to keep up with European cars omgzz" (which again doesn't mean crap) they are more affordable and track times are all that matters
