    Raced a Yellow C5 today.

    I would like to say first that I'm a Diehard GM fan and have loved Corvettes for over 20 years so there was no pleasure in this. It was a beautiful yellow C5 with rims and wide tires. I was on my way to the bank when he pulled over in the next lane and next to me at a light. We acknowledged each others rides and his girlfriend was laughing. We rolled to about 20 mph and all hell broke loose. I spun a bit up until about 45 mph and then the boost smacked 20-21 psi and I proceeded to put multiple carlengths on him. I have no idea how fast I was going because I still have the original 85 mph speedo, but I figured I blew past 100 mph. I don't like racing other GM cars when I can help it and he was cool. I have some major upgrades to my car, but I would guess that his C5 was near stock.

    Nice Kill, I love GN's!

    however, for your lack of loyalty in racing another GM product, you are banished from the general's realm and must buy a scion. a pink one. and fuzzy dice... and neon ground effects. now go reflect on the sins you have commited

    Why don't you like racing other GM cars? It's not like you are actually killing them.

    I wish I knew. I just went over 2200 miles on the new engine so I was taking it easy for the first 1500. I plan to hit the dyno when I get some time.

    Wise Guy! I would swear I saw the same yellow Vette today in that area. We were going opposite directions this time.

    You probably want to open a new thread for this, but there are lots of variables...

    your driving ability
    where you are running it at
    power you are putting to the ground.

    if you can't get to a track, see if you can borrow a gtech from someone. It would be good if you could get it on a dyno too.

    Neither of those is a real substitution for making it out to a 1/4 mile dragstrip, though!!

    And while you are driving your scion, I'll hold on to the GN for you. ;-)

    GM, or no GM, this would have been incentive enough for me to pull bus lengths on him. She was probably laughing because he commented negatively on you're ride. Ahh, so the saying goes though, "he talked the talk, but neglected to walk the walk"....

    Awesome kill!

    LOL. God Forbid! Likewise my friend. I have wanted a Vette since before I could drive. One of my neighbors about 5 houses up just brought home a beautiful new Dark Blue C6 that I have the pleasure of passing everyday.

    Thanks alot guys for the compliments. I have wanted one since I was in Highschool(eek 87) when my friends mother picked him up in one. It's been a lot of work and sometimes I have wanted to hit it with a hammer, but it's a fun hobby.

    Grand National's have such a very distinct sound when they spool up. Always wanted one myself...
