    Mine the salt, boys. The best part, seeing all the excuses for the 3600lb. sports car against a 6300lb. 4X4. C8 wins in the end, no brainer. What are some good excuses you guys can offer, lets hear them.

    What is the real world 0-60 people are putting down in the TRX? Because lot's are running sub 3 in the C8 on the street.

    I see this as Hennessey creating attention as the physics and math do not add up. But... Anything is possible in reality

    As much as I like the TRX, as mentioned, it is just a way to get views and attract potential victims...

    on a legit race (WITH EQUAL REACTION TIME and drivers), the C8 will decimate.

    Vendor name aside, entirely different vehicles each with its own fan base. If I was free to buy pretty much any car today, it would be a hard choice between the 2021 GT-500 and the 2021 C8. On the truck side, the TRX would be my only choice. King of the Hill!

    Don’t even wast your time. They line up a trx and c8. They “race” then but allow the trx to get the hit. Trx gets in front of the c8 on the launch but c8 reels in....

    cucked video.

    Is this a troll attempt? This is worse than the video Hennescam put out where the C8 beat a Huracan to drum up interest for his overpriced, bolt-on packages that may or may not include parts from other customers cars.

    Made it sound like the TRX beat the C8, but the race pretty much went just how you would expect it to go.

    If I had a choice to pick between the two,............TRX all day long for me.
    Way better interior and way better looks. And it would be my fast daily driver. LOL

    The truck was stalled up to about 1800 rpms. The corvette didn’t use launch control and left off idle. I can’t stand his comparison videos.

    the stock Trx runs 12.3 to 12.7 depending on who test it. Top speed is 118. The 1000hp package still only runs [email protected](fast no doubt)
    Stock vet runs high 10s to 11.3
    So I guess whoever he has drive the Chevy is 16 years old and thinks a Prius is a zippy car

    Point of my little rant is the Trx is fast but don’t put it up against a c8 or any other seriously fast car. It is a truck made for off-roading not a dragster
