    I can tell you that mine doesn't ping and it pulls until you run out of road. You may be hearing the slave bearing. They are constantly turning in the C5s, and are known to rattle a little. GM actually had a bulletin on them.

    Go to a dealership and get the following service information:
    DOCUMENT ID# 1858665
    Its five pages long and shows a normal noise problem identified as "Gear Rattle" in 6 speed transmitions.It specifically mentions Corvettes.
    Hope this helps.

    By the way, after I sell the C5, I'm going for a mid to late 90s F-body. The Corvette is just too nice to beat on.
    I've always thought these cars look SO MUCH BETTER with the side door ding guard removed or never installed. That was a clean looking 'vette.

    I'd do a Z06 if I were you
    And pass on the base C6
    The Z06 is alot more car

    I have an 03 Z06 and love it

    I'd do an C6Z06 but my 03 is paid off so in my case it makes no sense

    I decided to just keep my 03 and add 150hp

    I going to fab up a titanium mid pipe, and throw a carbon fiber front end on it

    The car only weighs 2980lbs right now

    High revving and quick out of the hole is what I'm shootin for

    Whatever you wind-up with at the end of the day

    You won't have any regrets, Vettes like camaro's & TransAms are some mean machine's

    I strongly suggest you follow through with your buy a C6 idea, if you are going to purchase a used C6, then please do yourself a big favor and at least test drive a Z06.
    I've owned 6 F-Bodies, and there is simply NO comparison to a C6, or C5 for that matter.
    F-Body cars are Muscle cars.
    Corvettes are Sports cars.
    C6 Z06's are Super cars.
    Decide what you're looking for and buy your dream car. Hey, I'm almost 50 and my Z06 is the best car I've ever owned, and I modded my last SS Camaro to over 500hp with a C5 Z06 LS6 crate engine!
    You simply can't compare a F body to a Vette, if you're looking for attention, and it doesn't appear that you are, you'll get it with the Vette, but that's certainly NOT why I bought mine, it just comes with the territory.
    Break the ass end loose at 70 in second, take her to 130+ in 3rd gear, what more do you need?

    Naw, there's never enough power. Once you get used to something, you always want "a little more!" Although I kinda agree, I just want my TA to be a 12 sec car always and still have great MPG to brag about.

    I believe my Formula 6 speed will run a low 13. It even feels good. Man I cleaned her up real good, she looked so fine maybe I might keep her!!
