    Isn't this true of any race though? I agree that track racing is better for comparing two cars, but not for this reason. Confused

You are choosing not to believe it

    Again; seen Z's vary in trap widely even stock...don't see why it's hard to fathom a bottom-barrel Z could have taken on a stronger running M5...why is this impossible?
    I feel like a lower factory output Z lined up with a strong factory M5. If they were both truly stock, then how else could this be explained? maybe the Z owner is bad about maintenance and his car needs some routine stuff done to get it back to peak output. With what information we have, it should be left at this:

    Possibility #1, M5 is hiding some mods
    Possibility #2, The Z06 is poorly maintained
    Possibility #3, M build this particular engine well, and Chevy didn't do so great with this particular Z

    Well it doesn't necessarily have to be poorly maintained (possible yes) because not all motors leave the factory identical....especially hand built motors like a C6z. Ever heard the phrase "This motor was built on a Monday"

    I understand now. I first read that as "you forgot this possibility"

    Stock F10 M5 DCT
    Click here to enlarge


    Jamie Furman's stock C6 Z06 stock tire run.

    Note, in a later video he claimed the car made 455whp what any stock C6 Z06 could make, I however have seen "most" make 420-440
    Click here to enlarge


    Notice the back 1/8th, NOT the front 1/8th.

    The M5 picks up 26.62 MPH.

    The Z06 picks up 26.45 MPH

    Also note, more Z06's are dragging each weekend then all F10 M5's combined to date and they've been beating on them at the strip since 2006.
    Important, no one has ever really replicated the Z06 times, and traps. So this is the worlds 'fastest' being edged out past 90mph

    Cant wait to see how many M5 owners try to run z06's and get stomped, purely on this video and the speculation it has behind it.

    The recent half mile in Chicago suggests the m5 is damn near on par with the c6.

    A C6 Z06 with just a dyno tune is going to be a good bit faster then a stock C6Z. Considering most C6Z's that run aren't stock, i'd agree that most F10 M5's are going to get beat

    Well, the last shiftsector had a Stock C63 P31 beating a Stock F10 m5 twice over. Does that mean a C63 is faster than a z06? Doubt it.

    A C63 P31 with it's wet clutch 7 speed has gotten to the 120mph mark in the 1/4. Whether or not it could back 1/2 a C6Z in the 1/4 mile is surely something that needs to be tested. For the F10, there is some concrete evidence to formulate a good guess that it can pull one. Videos lie that's one thing, timeslips...that's another.

    Again, most stock C6Z's trap 120-124. There's a serious weight and tire advantage for that car in the first 1/8th mile

    I feel like you all forgot how prone to heatsoak the new M5 is. It has been shown that its a problem with the M5, therefore races involving an F10 M5 are circumstantial, and the results may vary.
