I was noticing that. I looked at the passenger and around every turn he's almost out the window or on Helio's lap. Helio is just planted though.

Very cool. Wouldn't mind going for a ride in one either.

+1 to that. i was waiting for the passenger seat to snap off. when the driver said 1 more lap the passenger was looking a little unsure. he didnt know whether to pee his pants or blow chunks. he did well to grin and bear it. i bet its a scary ride from the passenger seat.

Granted the driver is a top pro but I'm impressed with the car's handling. The car is already heavy but even with the extra weight it doesn't look heavy when cornering. Amazing.
Agreed, id rather go karting with a top speed of 45 mph on a road course than to the drag strip with a 11 sec car

Love it when Helio put the passenger window down so he could hear the engine during the whole run, then he practically "asked" permission for one more lap. He was having a ball

Great thread with much opportunity to extold the virtues of our beloved ZL1 from the honered "joyriders" standpoint, may I respectfuly suggest that the forums feedbeeck is insignificant compared to those who actually took part in this experience. What will truely bring this thread to life and have meaning is to have first hand accounts from those who took part in this exercise to relate their own personal experiences about what their joyrides were like with such honored "guests" behnd the wheel of the ZL1. Create an account if you don't have one, post if you do, we want to hear it from YOU.....
