    A Z06 and some revenge...Long post.

    Out and about again tonight. Went to some car meet and fooled around w/a bunch of "fast" hondas...None of them were fast. So I went to the area I always go and bamn....I see some good killing. It was a silver C5...I tell my girl that I want to eat some vette tonight. So I follow him and dammit....What do I see. The damn Z06 badge....Grrr...Not on race fuel...Only running 21 psi...Have my girl w/me...Not a good scenario....Results are suprising though...He was really cool young guy too... He obliges to a 40mph roll.

    We go to the deserted area and we do the 3 honk and we're off. I actually pull on him in 2nd and 3rd is strong but he pulls back up. I go into 4th and he's starting to pull and by 125mph we shug down w/me right off his back bumper. It was the 385hp version not the 405. With my race map and no passengers this would have been a kill story. For now though I'll take the 1 car loss...It was worth it to see where I stand.

    Now my sweet revenge...I had posted a little while back that while on my vf22 I ran into an Ls1 w/some mods. He had some sort of re flash, exhaust, ls2 intake something, and a few other little goodies. He at the time placed 2 cars on me and was a **** about it. I saw him and now I chased him down... I ask again if I can try again..He says sure... He wants to go from a stop....uhm stock tranny..NO !...then he's like well a 1st gear roll...So I say ok even know I havent used 1st like this since the new 18g...Im a little nervous...
    1st race: I run from 15mph and bog the 1-2 launch..I bounced off the rev limiter and it was not smooth. I however by 120mph have him by 2 cars...I was sooo excited...He was soo pissed. Now hes like lets go from 60 mph...I say ok.
    2nd race: From 60 Im in 3rd at 4.5 rpm...sweet spot...I immediately pull him and run him to 140+ shutting down up by at least 4 cars...Killed...I loved every minute...Sweet revenge..

    He's got work done but he still has an automatic. He has a stall converter too but thats only good from a dig I think...

    Overall a good night...I think Im gonna start carrying race gas w/me ....I keep getting caught w/my pants down
    ...sorry for the length...I'll be shorter next time..

    Better yet, install a small 5 gallon tank in your trunk with a remote switch on the dash.

    I heard about the tank thing...I'm gonna look into that..

    As far as the tranny, I am looking into gears but no need to spend 7k on a tranny....not in this lifetime. I would just buy the STI at that point...Its like my downpayment.

    On 25 psi I would have owned him....On 21 w/out the passenger it would have been a little closer...They run though...from a stop no problem but a roll...well ...

    13 sec,

    Why did you go with the 18g and not the 20g?

    I see that you want to go with the 2.5 block upgrade with a 18g.

    If you do the weight to HP ratio, they are at about the same, with the slight avantage going to the Z. If he had raced a 405 HP z then he might of had lost by no more than 3 cars.

    hp/weight ratio might be close..but ever think about TQ/weight ratio?
