    The C6Z06 had a horrible run as well.

    Not so lucky with the robitussin.

    The soma seems to go down easy though.

    I did that in my 1st EVER race.. I was against a Cavalier.. racing seat belts.. no interior or pass seat.. the whole works.. DRS.. etc.. so I thought.. hmm.. this guy might have something.. Hit the gas.. looked in the REARVIEW mirror and saw him WAY back there.. so I thought.. "oh, I guess its over... hes brakeing already" so I started braking...and coasted past the traps.. 15.7@58 Turns out the track is further.. and that car had NOTHING!!! THe next run was a LOT better.

    My best run at the track is 19.77 at 50MPH.

    Missed second on gave up on the run. Put it in 5th and coasted.




    I would have to find the slip...but I did get to the 1/4 mile marker faster than a cavi got to the 1/8 mile marker.

    My friend Danny couldn't wait to get his WS6 to the track, so we didn't even finish putting it back together. We left the passenger side head lamp assembly out of it (salvage vehicle)... we ran it at Lebanon Valley on Test and Tune night. The very next weekend was Run what ya brung, and almost EVERY LSx there removed their passenger side headlamp assembly.
