Re: Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 Chases 200 MPH
GM better get to 200mph as the race is ON. Ford's claim on the GT500 topped out at 191.2mph on recent tests yet Ford had claimed it could make 200mph...hmm.
Outside of bragging on paper I'd never get a 150+mph car. Us Canadians still use highways at 100km/h (62mph) as our maximum so I prefer to concentrate on 0-60 times rather than top speed.
Kills me that the previous vipers only had a 3.07 rear axle ratio to the GM and Ford 3.73 with similar transmission ratios so Dodge could avoid CAFEs gas guzzling tax. I'd get a Viper and put 4.56 gears in it, to hell with top speed.
