I havent pushed the car too hard on the street yet but Im taking it to the airstrip event this weekend so we will see. The best thing is that car drives like its stock. When I did get on it, that thing MOVED!

Our stage 3 package is our stage 2 + the ESS vt2 (rpi version)
Good to know it is not just me . I am going to do a few more vbox runs and try a few new things and see if they work, well post if they do.

Good luck on the airstrip event, I so wish I was going

Yeah darn right no more sleeper as I have way to many people picking on me lately, had another Z06 and CTS-V try it on......now I am not the type to go looking for a race but I am also not one to turn one down if they push the issue.

Really not sure what is up with these American muscle cars, I think they have this idea that we buy these cars as family vehicles and to pick up grocery The Z06 kept with me till I hit 80 and then I started putting 5 cars on him and he gave up, the CTS V was a little more stubborn, he lost ground quickly but would not back down and kept trying.

I was just on my way to picking my kid up from soccer, she was like "What I missed all the fun..." haha

Hahahaha. Nice. How bad did you get the CTS V? Yeah I only get picked on by Camaros, and Mustangs pretty much. Can someone outside the car hear the SC? How loud is the whoosh?

I beat the CTSV easier than the Z06, I knew I had him even before hitting 4th gear.

You can hear the BOV but it is short and not loud like a Tial BOV which you can hear everytime you shift.

When you get past 80+ then this car just hauls and I mean hauls, if you look at my early vbox times you can see how quick it moves in the top end.

I showed up 5 mins early to the soccer game because of these antics
