So...if they are so happy about the switch there must be some other factors that pure track numbers?!? Because the numbers are definitely better for the Z06. Therefore I must be right...

Pretty much hit the nail on the head.

If there is one resounding statement made by the guys I spoke with it's a much easier car to drive thus your average person will turn faster times.

Which is ultimately what swayed my decision towards the Boss. Now I never went to the track with both and confirmed this with lap times BUT it felt easier to drive and that overall just made the experience that much more enjoyable.

Pete, let me know if you get a chance to drive your buddies car, I would love to hear what you have to say about it after you get behind the wheel.

Any 2 seater sports car is going to pull in faster lap times, but it's 50/50 distribution going to be really easy for that car to step out on you. This is exacerbated by the z06's 500hp, but the TC/SC nanny system helps though. Z06 is probably a terrible first car to learn how to track.

Yeah will likely drive the 13 Boss this summer on the Canada trip. I am looking forward to it because he really likes it and he normally gets rid of cars pretty quick and stuff. I don't dislike the Boss or anything, you are just proving my point for me though. Saying its easier to drive on the limit, etc, is just one of many factors that don't show up when you just look at lap times. So for you to like the Boss over the Z06 is part of the reason people like other cars versus the Boss. Very very few people actually care about absolute performance over all else, or we'd all be driving ariel atoms.

If you can't find some then don't bother replying, I will take your silence as my answer.
What sources did you want me to site? It was told to us at training from chassis engineers working for BMW.

You are correct, I shouldn't make posts like that without stating that it's not something that I can confirm, just something that was told to me by reputable sources.

In my personal opinion, that is what Ford did. If at all possible, attempt to find comparison pictures. Just out of personal interest, I was able to find a few undercarriage and suspension pictures of the mustang and I see quite a few very recognizable component designs that I see on a regular basis on M3s.

I don't doubt what we were told, and even more so now after seeing a couple pictures, but at the end of the day it's not really worth arguing about. I shouldn't have stated it like it was fact, merely my educated opinion.

someone hit me on my birthday of all days... I stopped at the light but he didnt.

this pic is hard to see but he scuffed up the rear bumper and put a few dents in it

might not be a big deal to most but this cars 2 years old and has 5k miles and is pristine... so it annoys me majorly
