I really disagree. If you bought a nice SC or a nice Mustang, put enough money into it to equal the cost of a new C5, I high doubt the Corvette would outrun, and especially out handle the project car. The numbers simply don't make sense.Thomas said:Well I'd say buy a vette and keep it stock, it'll outhandle the birds and stangs and with all the money you'd put into the track ready bird or stang, it'll end up costing as much as a c5 and the vette will still handle better.
But if I had to choose, I'd pit a fox body also. They just have so many available parts. All around coil overs and camber/caster plates and such.
And which corvette is this based off of? The C5 or the C5 ZO6? Two different animals. I think you could take a stang and cage it with 500hp for a total of less than 15-20K. Take the remaining 15-30K and throw that in suspension and I don't see how a stock Corvette could take it, period.Thomas said:i'm just kinda basing this statement off of that one article in that one magazine (real specific I know) of the s2000 and other imports that put 70,000+ dollars into their track cars and the corvette still outhandled them. The bird is way heavier than those imports and will cost more to get it there.
The why aren't there birds or mustangs in LeMans? I still have to believe the ZO6 will outhandle them both.AverageJoe said:More than likely but for the same costs you can get a lighter car and get better suspension components all for the same price if not a little less. Thats why I think a mustang or even a bird is cheaper open track car than a corvette or ZO6
No, but it would be nice to see the new GT become a Le Mans entry.SanDiegoLXBird said:Does Ford even run at Le Mans anymore?
