7-11? shares? What?

Well, that being said, the busa has to go, I can't afford to have three vehicles that will kill me equally fast.

I am loving the V-8, coming from a turbo car, I finally understand what every V-8 guys are talking about. The power is always there, whenever. Tracking this car will be super fun too, but I think I will stick with bikes for now.

Pro: Fun, Fast, good looking car, and FAST!!!
Con: Loud and bumpy ride. It does not feel it is tightly built. Interior can definately use some euro touch, lot of plastic...

Don't autocross it, run it on a hugeass track like Road America.

You need any help with the car or have questions about it, go to www.ls1tech.com, it's a massive resource for all LSX engines and cars.

nice car man...it always needs refinements...but its a solid car...

also go to www.corvetteforums.com and read up there as to all the tricks they have done including any possable issues that the model may have...

...plus my gf was with me saying "omg slow down, slow down" and I was thinking "Lose annoying squalk box in passenger seat, afford more mods and have less weight in the car and on the back of the bike"...so i dumped her and I'm single again as usual...HERE KITTY KITTY!!!

Yep, turbos are fun, but there's no feeling like a V-8! Of course you could always put the twin turbo kit on there for some silly pull!

Congrats Sponge My friend had a limited edition Z06 that was blue with white stripes and I always liked the way it looked and sounded. He tracked the car a lot, but he ended up selling it. I'll tell you more about it next time I see you bro. Happy Thanksgiving!

Open your owners manual. If you want to lower it, they tell you how to do it. You do not need to change any parts to do this. In the video that comes with the car, they tell you to lower the rear 1.5 inches, and show you how. I am not much of a GM fan, but this is a really sweet car. Again, nice ride.

Very nice car, Sponge, congratulations!

We're going to have to take our cages to some Wicsonsin twisties before it gets too cold for our tires to grip well. You'll get me in a straight line but I think I might have you in the corners.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!
