Once again the mag racers have to be reminded that anything can happen on the street and that just because something has a V8 doesn't mean it can't be beat. :rolleyes:

Great point if the op wasn’t stock. A modified stinger is not the vehicle being compared. I run a JB4 with intakes and borla. Limited to 91 octane in Canada my gt2 might keep with a c7 from a dig....might. Stock stinger is not a competitive c7 race.

Stock C7 is a 12 second car. Stock GT2 is a 13 second car.

Mersy's car is stock. Either the Corvette was broken, the owner blew a shift, or the old man wasn't racing.

$499 will make an AWD Stinger faster than a stock C7 from a dig.

I've never raced an NA C7, but I've been flexed on by a Z06.

I've beat several NA C6's though.

If you're tuned, a C7 stingray or GS can be beaten too. I've raced 3, all autos, and managed to inch away from them. The key is a 2nd or 3rd gear roll race, and you'll do even better if you're able to brake boost.

After some Google I may have had my year wrong or model I'm not a corvette fan I'm sorry lol. It was 2014 maybe I just assumed it was newer cause id never seen one that looked like it.

2014-2019 are identical. Only wide(z06,gs) body and base are different.
power for c7 is unchanged for stingray from 14-18. They’d all kick a stock cars ass up and down. C6 was 400/400 from 05-07 (ls2) which I had and ran low 12’s with long tubes and corsa ends. 08-13 had ls3 making an extra 35hp over the ls2 and all c6’s ran mid low 12.
little boring bit of c6-7 points.

Yep..you're not beating any kind of auto C7 without a tune and at least a few things bolted on. That being said, the C7 Stingrays are coming down to a point where the average nugget that thinks they're the second coming of Paul Walker can grab a M7 Stingray and try it. I could have taken a nap between his shifts, good lord.

I'm having fun at 5,000 feet above sea level here in Colorado. Mustang guys here are sparse. The charger/challenger boys sure like to harass me. Anything short of a Hellcat gets beat easily enough up here.

Had some young kid in an STI with too much tape-on bullsh*t harass me for a couple blocks till I blew his doors off. Good times.
