What's that, Most Interesting Man in the World? You say there aren't enough funny cat pictures?

People using the Quick Spool Valve just keep getting great results. I've seen positive results with a 60-1 on a miata, but I would love to see it used with a QSV.

That was a cool build and the QSV was impressive for sure.

Not attempting to start a pissing match, but I fail to see how that matched the "responsiveness" of a ZR1 vette??



It took to ~3700rpm to catch the ZR1 in torque. Stock TT Supra curb weight is around 3417 pounds, Stock ZR1 curb weight is around 3,350 pounds so they're very close in that department, both have IRS Stock. Would I enjoy watching that race a ZR1? Hell Yes. Would the Supra win? Uh, Yeah. Responsive? Listening to the spool in the video, I'm still saying no.. Maybe my definition of "responsive" differs from theirs?

Btw, Who the **** buys a ZR1 and leaves it stock???

Have you never been to a Corvette show? Someone left a flyer on my car once in a parking lot so I went the next day and checked it out. It was horrible.

I'm not sure what possess many Corvette owners to become vette pilots but it must be bad. I've found that if you have a Corvette (Z06, ZR1, modded xyz) when you're younger, you really don't turn out too bad. It's the people who lust after them their entire lives until they finally get one and by that time they're too old/fat to get in and out of it or they don't want it to be too loud, tail happy, etc.

I loved my car because all it took was a slight tap of the throttle and the whole thing would just break loose and become a tug of war. Ask Leatherface24, he's seen the business end of rolling in the throttle from a 20 roll.

And for our non-SoCal friends, this is what it looked like when they shut down a 10-mile stretch of the 405 freeway for a whole weekend earlier this month, in what locals humorously dubbed "Carmageddon":

Actually I've never been to a vette show. Most of the 'gatherings' typically end up with heavily modded vehicles, everything from turbo civics, base model C6 turbo vette, turbo supras, TT-Vipers, and the occasional lotui (Plural lotus???) If they're anything like a regular run 'classic' car show, I understand. $200,000 1956 Chevy w/a 1071 on a 572 big block, full tubs, 9" spool, narrowed, blah blah blah driven by a 176 year old bastard who's never seen anything past 2% throttle on it...


IIRC you've got a C5Z?
