LG Motorsports of Texas (which stands for Lou Gigliotti & has the best C5 headers) now has the fastest NA 346 ci LS1 corvette in the world. also, his son goes to Purdue & is in our purdue car club (which i'm apart of, too)...... anyways, this vette traps at a very strong 140 mph but it has some traction issues as it is a world challenge car & not a dragster. anyways, here's LG motorsport's c5r vette (just wondering how powerful their c6r is gonna be)........

i still am having a hard time to comprehend that its all motor & its running 9s (10s with shitty launching, but 140mph is a 9 sec trap speed)!!!
What's so hard to believe it's all motor? Listen to the damn thing bro!

i'm just saying its hard to get all motor cars to do 10s
Hondas yeah, vettes no! Look what the ls2 rips off the 1/4 mile in stock. That thing is stroked to the bone. I believe it's all motor, didn't see no purge did you?

but thats the thing. lou gigliotti took an LS1, which probably runs low to mid 12s, & made it run 9s (w/ traction)..... if you've ever gone to the track, you'll understand how hard it is to shave just a tenth of a second

edit: stock c5's run mid 13's, granted this is a world challenge race car w/ a hardcore racing diet.....

its a corvette its not hard to get that thing into the 10's
hmm, browsing over the corvette forum's "performance section", i'm seeing a bunch of guys with bored out LS1's that are running 10s & what not, but i am not seeing guys with the stock 346's running 10s..... hell, they are barely making high 11 passes

huh, maybe so, but i'd like to see some timeslips...... i guess it would be way easier with a V8 to bump out easy power & fast times... if only it was that easy for m3s :bh

you think you have it bad buy a Civic with a D16 and see how much power you get out of it w/o turboing it :(

hahaha...honda/acuras have a much harder time getting fast times all motor. look at the skunk2 guys, a 15 sec RSX to a 9 sec all motor. that's fast. :eek

Yeah no doubt just actually that about that car. He dropped 6 seconds from building his car all motor. I'd imagine a v8 vette wouldn't have a problem shaving 3 or 4 seconds with way less work!
