Drove a Corvette ZO6

I drove an 04 z06 the other night. That car is amazing! It has some crazy torque! You can feel it immediately once you shift into second gear for example. If you don't shift above 2000 while you're in 1st gear it'll put you in 4th gear and block you from entering 2nd gear. Also the heads up display is amazing! it displays the speed, tach, gas and gear you're in i think. The car is really easy to drive too and may I add that it's a kick in the ass to drive. The clutch is smooth. The only thing i don't like is the huge ass shift knob it comes with. Thanks Marcus!

vette's are amazing things. i rode in a teammate's '03 cobra(about same straight line speed) and god damn! it really made me realize how the celica lacks torque. that thing seemed to pull like a monster at any rpm, any gear. to sum it up . . . i was amazed! eek
