Car Corrections

2006 Chevrolet corvette lingenfelter

ThatPorscheGuyThatPorscheGuy Member Posts: 101
1/4 mile time significantly improved to 10.6s and 134mph trap speed (131 tuned ingame does 11.36 @ 127mph)
https://www.thetruthaboutcars.com/2006/06/chevrolet-corvette-z06-lpe/
HP and Tq value should also be corrected, the slowest lingenfelter has 630hp and 570lbft (616hp 540lbft)
Whilst the fastest version (arguably the one hutch should use) has 750hp and 721lbft. 
I even found an article on one with 800+hp  https://www.roadandtrack.com/new-cars/car-comparison-tests/reviews/a20273/speed-kings-lingenfelter-c6-corvette/
This version does 0-200 in 26.5s and 1 mile a little later at 201 mph.

    The car doesn't need correction imo.
    As stated by EVO, the car does 0-60 in 3.8 sec and 0-100 in 8.2 secs.
    Which, in Top Drives Club language, is 86.36 MRA, which isn't far off from the 85 listed on TDC site.

    It's worth noting that there were different power packages from LPE.  The R&T link above was for a Twin Turbo version making 800hp, which is not the ingame version.  The other two links (TruthAboutCars & Evo) both reference the 616hp naturally aspirated package, although they get wildly different quarter mile times.
    TAC: 10.6 @ 134
    Evo: 12.0 @ 125

    Since a stock 2006 Z06 runs the quarter mile in 11.5 @ 127, I find Evo's numbers subject to either high altitude or extremely hot temperatures while testing.

    However, I'm also not sure if I trust TAC's test either.  An additional ~100hp usually doesn't improve quarter mile times by a full second and 7mph trap speed in the quarter, once you get down to 11s and 10s.  They also just casually mention it in their article, without any other instrumented test data, so I wonder if they ran the test, pulled the number from somewhere else, or were just told the numbers.  By comparison, GM's official claim for the C7 ZR1 was 10.6 @ 134 and that took 755hp.

    Curiously, a 650hp/650tq C7 Z06 also only ran an 11.5 @ 124, slower than the MT time for the C6 Z06 above.

    I'd want to run a 000 C6 Z06, to see what it runs, then a 000 Lingenfelter to see where they both sit.  After seeing those results, we can go from there.

    The Hp increase wasn't the only thing changed by Lingenfelter, on their website they have a full list of changes if you're interested.

    Of course, just like any other tuner out there.

    It also looks like the package has changed a little since 2006 (adding 14hp), but the components should still be mostly the same.  It is also engine internals, with no suspension work, so nothing was done to improve traction over the stock vehicle.

    It should also be worth mentioning that Lingenfelter doesn't offer turnkey cars, such as those from RUF, Saleen, etc.  These are just packages added to existing customer cars, so it's a little more difficult to state that this particular car represented in the game has these specific specs.

    I need players who have these cars to do this
