Hi all, I don`t ever see me spending $110.000.00 for any car. Unless I hit
the lottery, If I were to buy a 600 HP car. I would need to know that it
included a 600HP clutch. I have read that the C6 clutch can`t handle the
power the engine already has. My C5 has 345 HP and I can`t use all of that
and still be legal on the street. The other day I jumped on the interstate,
(there was no other traffic) I got on it moderately and was doing 92 mph.
in forth gear. I coasted through fifth and sixth, and slowed back down to
65 mph. What would I do with 600 HP? I will be surprised if GM sells as
many $110,000.00 cars as they do $55,000.00 cars, maybe they will, we will
see. Also I don`t know how practical a turbo charged Vet would be as a
daily driver. I guess only the future will tell. Would I take a LT1 if it
were given to me? In a heart beat? Lanny

Take it to a club day at the local road course race track. You can use
that entire 345 HP, the big brakes and big tires too! Lots of fun,
legal and safe!

Try this on for size:
www.openroadracing.com
www.silverstateclassic.com

I have run all 5 of those events, once in the 150 mph speed class. I
have run at 165 mph for miles and miles... all legal and as safe as that
can really ever be in a car without a roll cage. More safety equipment
needed to really run in the fast groups, but less wear and tear on the
tires for sure.

After a dozen or so days on the track with a bit of informal training, I
think I could make use of a bit more tire. More HP is always fun.
