    I think I was about 3/4 of the way down the track before he caught me.
    I'm guessing his 400+ hp helped out a bit lol

    hahaha i love how you were lookin back and back and back and then suddenly he just walked right by you.

    I'll bet that was a normal C5... didn't see any Z06 rear brake vents.

    You know what year it was?

    I dont know what year it was, it looked very new to me.

    I wish it was a 1/8th mile track instead :twisted:

    Thanks. I do like the deep mellow tone.

    lemme think... alot of people would beat a 10.9 very close to an 11 second 1/8th on my 16.7 run i was just under 10 seconds at like 9.8 bone stock escort lxe. at least your friend has the much nicer ride than me but hopefully he doesnt challange alot of people because i see him getting beat alot.
