Those early 2000 Z06's do really well on the track. Light mods, r-comps and driven fairly well I can't hang with em. That's just one reason I'm building a motor and upgrading brakes and aero!

Regular C5s aren't anything special. Light mods really wake them up.

Well the guy I pulled on, on the highway this morning, sure wasn't happy.

Guess his Baker Racing sticker didn't add enough RWHP.

You should see the C6Z owners. They REALLY don't like it.

Did he slump real close to the steering wheel, and avoid eye contact with you, after you put it to him?

Similar thing happened to me the other day. I was cruisin down a rural road and a vette pulled out infront of me. I tried to instigate things since where we were there was plenty of straights. After about a mile he turned down a side street and I thought o well I'm gonna stop by the river for some pics and let my dog take a **** anyways. So I did and not two minutes later the same dude pulls back out and as he sees me standing by the side of the road he floors it, nice I'm not saying I would have won if we did race, but what a *****...

90 percent of vette owners are yuppie douches think their cars are the pinnacle of awesomeness and are faster than every thing that could potentially pull up next to them.

When I was at the track Thursday, I was paired with a mid 90's Mustang, and when we raced I missed a gear. He put it to me. The next pass, low and behold, we were paired again. I wiped the damn smirk off his face.

I have video of a c5 chasing me on a small road course. I was on stock power (exhaust. intake. etc) it took him at least 5 laps. He bought a s2000 powered Miata soon after.

More than one camshaft in an LS1/6? Let me know how that works out.

I highly doubt it was the same C5.
