    Wait a second, you might have sent him to trackhq, but I mentioned that the car was listed for sale on trackhq - even if I said it was a Z06. Still . . .

You gotta keep the momentum, nail your technique, and make up time on the brakes, but that C5 really does it for me. I'm sure I'll have a blast, I'm pretty stoked. Thanks again guys. Bellwilliam, I'd pay you a finders fee, but I am seriously broke now!

    IIRC, you sat in my car. As a point of reference, my seat can move down another inch and half or so. I'm 5'7" and I like to be able to see my own hood. I'd adjust so that I sit as high as possible while passing broomstick by about a 1" margin.

    Shoot, reminds me of that roadster. Can barely see one front wheel in a frickin open wheel car! That's pretty bad!
