Hello Oppo, here is our top speed attempt with the Corvette C7! A few things to take note of:

-The runway isn't as long as we would like it to be, so I doubt you could run a C7 to more than 160mph on this one.

-The 7 speed transmission takes some getting used to, as you'll see, it's very easy to do a 2—>5 or 4—>7 shift. We probably could have eked another 4 or 5 mph without that mistake, and then another 5mph if we had tried to push it more.

Unfortunately the price of a Corvette does not include wings, otherwise yes we would have hit higher speeds.
