2001 C5 Z06 vs 2020 C8 Corvette

Check out this video by GT Drummer Dude on YouTube of the Omega Motorsport NoFlyZone ARIZONA Event at the Gila Bend Municipal Airport.

Per his description:
The Z06 had a passenger and the C8 did not. This was my slowest pass of the day at 136.5 mph. My fastest pass was 144.6 mph and the fastest pass of this stock C8 was 144 mph. After 2 or 3 passes I was doing 141-144 mph the rest of the day, exactly the same as this C8 was doing all day. The fastest pass of another C8 with headers and exhaust was 148 mph. I just wish the only video I got against a C8 wasn’t my slowest pass of the day by 8 whole mph… With no passenger in my later runs I would have been door to door with this guy all the way down the track. The 1/2 mile trap speeds tell the tale though- the C8 is no faster than a stock C5Z with a good driver.

How Much Money Did RearWheelDrive Make on YouTube with C8 Corvette

Check out this video from RearWheelDrive on YouTube where he shows how his YouTube had grown by doing more videos and ever since he started using his C8 Corvette more with each mod, event, and do it yourself video.

Pretty cool to see even filming a Corvette Car Show he made $40 and over $100 just filming a problem with his DCT (Dual Clutch Transmission) which makes a lot of sense since people love drama or when things go wrong. Especially with the new C8 Corvette for current owners to be aware of new issues that might pop up and for the haters to complain “see this is why I didn’t get the first year..” meanwhile probably half didn’t even have the money to get one in the first place.
