Well I raced the GTO for the first time last night. I was leaving a carshow with my friend in his '02 vette and he decided to provoke me.

The first time it backfired in front of a lancer full of girls traveling in the third lane. we left from a first gear roll, i hit second and he tried to cheat the slow stock tach a little i think. I heard his rev limiter as he nosed over and fell back...:lol:

the second time we pulled away from a light slowly and at about 15 mph he hammered it. I was a split second late so he was a half car ahead when i got into it. From 15 up through about the middle of third (80 or so, maybe 85), I couldnt make up his half car length and he couldn't pull even an inch. We couldnt really ride out third any longer because we were running out of empty road ahead.

I'm happy though, my car only has 810 miles on it so it's still in the process of wearing in and picking up power and it's pretty much dead even with a 600 pound lighter corvette at least through the first three gears (his aero is a little better up top i would think).

as far as driving, we're pretty even. neither of us is great but not bad either.

rear seats are 51 pounds for both, passenger seat is around 40-50. They do make a carbon fiber hood but it's ugly. ;)

ugly!!??? pshhhh speed is beautiful enough...nascars are fugly too dude

nah the design is ugly...it has these two dumbass looking scoops that look like they're at completely the wrong angle way up on the front of the hood.

I'd probably rock a CF hood if it came in the stock design.
