Thats the difference between a vette and an m3... one of them u launch control and easily drive away... the other is and always will be a tail happy dragster.

The C7 has launch control too and is as easy (or easier) to launch as the M4 (assuming auto vs DCT). The Vette has better weight distribution to the rear for a launch, more linear torque and wider tires. Both cars are pretty comparable in a straight line with a slight edge to the C7.

Don't blame the car, blame the driver . You can't make up for inexperience regardless of the car.

Sure the Corvette is quick, but it has no class.

Good thing the M3 wasn't next to the C7 at the turn or the Vette would've smacked right into him

No, He wasn't racing the vette, it was a joke but the mod didn't get the joke and moved the thread here.

Good thing he wasn't or he probably would have been hit.

Those are not F8x so they are not in this conversation. Also i didnt realize this was a vette forum and therefore didn't know someone would get offended because I said something about the vette.

Psssst....this is the "vs" section, Sport. And if you want to get technical, your video was of a C5 and C6.....not a C7. Can't have it both ways. I love it how you fanboys can dish it out but once something gets thrown back at you, you get all butt hurt. See the same thing in reverse on the Corvette Forum, ViperAlley, Rennlist, etc. It's comical as hell. Glad I'm not a fanboy of any badge.

Yup and if you want to get technical I just said "vette" not any specific model. No one is butt sore at all.. Fanboy I may be but I'm good with that!

From my experience, the M4 is more of a handful (not that it is tough by any stretch of the imagination) to manage than the C7.
