    Default It has arrived!

    Just took possession of the T1 Corvette. Big thanks to Joe Aquilante from Phoenix Performance and Thomas Sunday Transportation. http://www.s2ki.com/s2000/uploads/ga...521_402434.jpg

    Couldn't upload the photo since it was too big and I fail at embedding.

    Sweet! I didn't put two and two together on your google group email. Didn't know that was you. Can't wait to compare notes on your transition from the S2K to Vette.

    Thanks everyone!

    Kevin, I still have the S2000 and will be parting it out back to stock and keeping it as a weekend cruiser. I love the car too much to sell it at this point!

    Ed, the story is pretty simple. I've been doing track days for about 4 years and attended racing school last year. I decided it was time to go racing and did not want to convert my S2000. I posted a thread asking for feedback and landed feet first in a T1 Corvette.

    Jim, definitely looking forward to getting the vette out on track! I figure it should be a pretty smooth transition, but we shall see!

    Thanks again everyone!

    Congratulations on the Vette, Rob! That is awesome! Back in the SS Camaro days who would have known that you would be racing a Vette w2w! Can't wait to go for a ride in that beast!

    Searched and found your thread. You posted it like 2 months ago. I remember now seeing it. Well, congrats and keep us posted. I like reading about peoples experience as they transition into racing. Any particular reason you went for that car? Maybe ill see you in ST2 someday.

    I wanted something front engine, rear-wheel drive and with plenty of power. I think the Corvette is a great platform and something I can grow into. I plan on running in ST2 at some point as well. Thanks for the kind words!
