Corvette ZR-1 VIDEO

http://jalopnik.com/cars/detroit-aut...?autoplay=true

This is from INSIDE the ZR-1 as it goes around the Laguna Seca track! Listen the the engine at the beginning and you can hear that supercharger whine!

AWESOME!

When it first starts up, before you hear the butterflies open at 3 grand. You hear what sounds like a machine door opening up.

I can picture a caption for the video.


"Initializing floodgates cap'n...(whirrrrrrrr)"

"Lock and load major"

"Floodgates opened sir, firing afterburners..."

*butterflies open*

Kenny Logan's "Danger Zone" starts blasting...


EDIT: After watching the video's opening about 5 times after posting this, I realized, I'm buying a few ignition switches for my car. Just to add to the effect of when I get my turbo.

That would be so Awesome!!! Right up on the cieling, and all they'll do is prevent the ignition from actually starting!

I like that idea. Count me in. Usually I hate pointless mods, but I can get on board with this.

Toggle switches! Hurah! Everything needs toggle switches. Eventually I plan on having my workshop or garage or what ever with every outlet and switch will be linked to a toggle switch with an indicator light. Of couse this would be mounted on a control pannel.

Where was I . . . oh yeah, that video is pretty cool.
