A tuned, lighter, more powerful version of the same car is slower and has less handling then the stock car? unlikely.
But now to the proof. The yellow Z06 in game has a acceleration of 0-60 in 3.5 sec. Hutch favorite source, the EVO Magazine, has tested both Versions of the Z06, Lingenfelter and Stock. The Stock on has a 0-60 of 3.9 seconds, so 0.4!!! seconds slower then in game. That is a huge differrence. Sadly the EVO Mag didnt bother testing the 0-60 or other accelerations themselves, so there are only the claimed times, but still.....
Same goes for the handling. I quote the EVO Mag here (Test of the Lingenfelter): "On the fast A-roads it’s much more assured; stable, grippy and devastatingly rapid. Here the extra performance can be put to good use."
So the Lingenfelter is faster and better handling, but still the stock Z06 has more Handling in game then the Lingenfelter...Im sorry, but that is just wrong. If I didnt know better, Id say, they just need to swich the 2 Versions and the stats, then it would be fine. Also the Topspeed is 1mph too fast on the stock Z06...thats very picky, I know, but we have the Data here, so why not use it.
Please cahnge that, so we can finally have the right Hirachy in the Corvette Segment.
That the new Grand Sport has the same handling as a 11 Years older base model, that is a different Story, but for now thats all I have.
