    Yeah, we went at it a few times and the result was the same.. If i was pulling a few semis, for sure he would suck, but it was only a few car lengths.
    I would say a 'pro' would have closed that a car length or two, but i think he did fine, he did drop a gear or two before we hit it. After that its pretty straight forward

    Two words...DAILY DRIVER!!! :)

    I'm not causing problems to just catch a number that I know it'll do. :) I ran just about the same time (11.78 @ 121.7) with just headers on the car off a much harder launch with an obviously much lower MPH. The day the car gives up daily driving duties is the day I'll build the drivetrain out more to support the power.

    Right now it's a fun daily monster to putt around town with. :)

    The new Stingray is fast but it's not even close to my C6. I own a C7 and here I put both of my Corvettes against one another. The camera is from the data recorder on the C7 and it was given the head start (as you'll hear the C6 wait). Can we say bus lengths?

    Yeah good bit faster than the C7. That should be the DD, not the other way around right? :)
    Anyways is upgrading the diff and clutch going to affect the drivability?

    I wouldn't be worried about anything going out with those two taken care of

    They're both our daily drivers (his and hers) or as I like to call them bruiser (C6) and cruiser (C7). Mantic makes great aftermarket clutches that from what I'm told are really light compared to stock and easy to drive on.

    Mine's a 2010 and unlike the older C6's it does have some stronger drivetrain components but I have to worry about axles and differential with a hard launch.

    Anyways, in the spirit of the thread I got my new exhaust system installed today. Much much deeper in pitch than before. It's got a dual mode sound (0:22 second I switch it for a moment to "quiet"). I love the sound. :banana:

    Sounds pretty good.

    Thats why i miss the old 2010 e63 i had. It had headers, tune, and exhaust redone(deleted cats and res) and that thing IMO is the best sounding NA V8 out there. It sounded mean as hell, just starting the car would wake up the neighbors lol.
    Turbos quieten down the cars too much IMO

    I love the whine of a supercharger on the low end. It's the only hint you're probably about to get whooped (if attempting to race).

    The AMG motors do have a nice snarl to them. The old S600 I recall has a great sound (not sure if that's the same engine as the E63.

    Yup..thinking about a customized licence plate for the car down the road to really emphasize the point.

    Good tread pattern. Looks like a combination between a drag slick and an all terrain.

    The S600 is V12. The 63 & 500 series are all V8...

    Good point. This is not the quickest but this sounds awesome (and what I was referring to)...

    Nah, 2.0 boxer diesel. Fuel consumption on the petrols isn't very good, and I drive quite a bit. Plus I wanted manual, 95% of the petrols are auto for some reason. I'm liking the characteristics of this diesel engine a lot though.

    lol, no joke. My '09 Legacy Sedan gets like 18/25 mpg. Only got 40k miles on it too, so that's not from wear.

    Yeah, I was aware of that fact before buying. The boxer diesel gets great milage though. Plus diesel is quite a bit cheaper than petrol over here.
