  • Official gm 60 mph to zero distance of c8 versus c7 z51 is 1 foot

    108ft stopping distance from 60 mph for c8 z51
    107ft stopping distance from 60 mph for the c7 z51

    both on gm test surfaces

    just a heads up for those complaining the c8 doesnt stop as well as the c7

      Every C8 now is not yet a production certified car, and as a top Corvette official noted to me yesterday, we wait until we have tested our production certified vehicles before we announce the final, official figures.

        I brought this up as a topic because many are discussing the lack of braking capability for the c8 which is utter nonsense.

        i specifically used an early document on the c7 z51 information release to give insight to wjat early gm testing can show versus future gm testing or auto magazine testing.

        the key to analyzing data is to utilize similar testing procedures in a similar environment to make a fair comparison.

        cant really use magazine results to compare another magazine data and the same goes for early GM data..

        gm testing for its corvettes are done on a specific surface that may in fact be different than the surface that say car and driver uses...

        the internet is awesome but it can also cause a landslide of misinformation ...

        a lot of times a guy or a group of guys who have say a previous generation z51 try and find fault with the next generation to try and prove why they shouldnt spend the money for a new corvette.

        i say if you are happy with your amazing corvette you own...

        cool...dont rish to great as the c8 is..if you are enjoying your existing amazing corvette...awesome...

        and no need to try and justify your decision with false or inaccurate data collections...

        with the rear weight bias of the c8...i would expect slightly improved braking and acceleration times if all other things being equal...

        yet that does not downgrade the fantastic performance of your existing corvette...

        time marches on with advancements in engineering yet it doesnt make their existing corvettes any less fantastic..
