    I bet drivers will beat on that Z06 all day and nothing will break unless parts were already really worn before the event.

    My base C6 lasts about 10 minutes at streets of willow, and loses power before it gives the high temp alarm.

    Sounds like fun . . .

    Not much you can hit at Chuckwall except that front-straight pit wall.

    One thing about the Corvette C6 Z06; the brake padlets wear extremely fast and the allen key pins are notorious for seizing up and being difficult to remove. There is a significant risk of running out of brakes on the Z06.

    75 posts is enough to make you a legit member. I predict manly moves this post to the "other" thread.

    Agree with the above and just feel we need to forward the best drivers.

    With picking 10 to 12, the list will most likely include a few "pro" TrackHQ'ers but should also include a few "un-sung" drivers who we all know are good.

    I just want to see this happen...should be very cool

    Also, stock Evos do drive themselves.

Having drivers at have reputations already outside of track hq win this thing would be kind of anti climatic. But to have guys like Clint, rob, William, sonny, and AJ represent the group would be a more compelling outcome IMO. They are all fast. (not intentionally leaving anyone off my list of fast guys here - these are just examples of guys i know and think of off the top of my head ) I mean, if the top 'prize' is being a test driver for them, why not send people that would actually appreciate the honor?

    Just a thought...
    yeah i like this also


    all jokes aside, i would love to be involved in this, but if members on THQ feel their are more capable people then I to make the ten then i do understand, we should put our best foot forward...

    i guess ill just have to see how the cookie crumbles
