The only thing that sucks about this car is the fuel economy. The headroom is a problem too with the moonroof, but adjusting the seats will take care of that.

1000 lb difference is hard to overcome. It will take a healthy dose of mods to keep up with a stock Z06...with a capable driver.

Thanks Stephen, but after looking at it a few times, I can see where I may be able to pick up a little more at launch. I'm still real happy with the run though.
