Paul Harvey said it best...
More money and ego than desire to learn or the humility to listen when told "you are doing it wrong."

On the subject of ZR-1s, does anybody know if they're running coilovers or transverse leaves? I ask because, while I fully understand and appreciate the subtle beauty and various advantages, as well as the subtle genius and "bad idea brilliantly executed" on par with the R/R layout of a 911, of the concept, I also know that the C6R (and possibly the C5R?) runs coilovers rather than the traditional Corvette monospring suspension. Anyway, I'd be interested, sometime, in seeing how a monospring and coilovers compare, for purely academic purposes. Of course this would require equally set up cars with the exception of the coilover/monospring layout, which would never happen, but it's fun to think about...

Yeah, the Vin Diesel guy. Not that it's going to be cheap to fix, but he was running his track prepped M3 there on Saturday, and his wife was on track with her 350Z convertible as well. Were you at the track?

Here's a pic my buddy took of you on Sunday. He was driving a black S14. and hitting 150 on the back straight at 10psi, compared to my 125 in my SE-R.

You're looking good out there.

There are lots of pics of the crashed Vette in the gallery as well.
