Ozzy, I'll be content just driving this weekend. It's been nasty and rainy in N. Va. for some time now. Saturday may not reach over 50 degrees, but at least the sun will be out. Makes me envious of characters living in Hawaii, California, or Texas, hell even Louisiana is warm, right Tram?

We've been warm enough out here, but the rain has been pretty constant up until the last few days. After that first day in the rain, I don't wanna take her out in it again...not because I'm one of those "it never sees rain" types, but because I was fishtailing up the driveway and got pretty close to the rock wall...no sense taking that kinda risk. If I do get caught in the rain with it I'll probably just leave it on the street next time.

Cool I've got my badges. Just waiting to wash the car again before I slap them on. Haven't ordered another set of fender stripes for attempt #2 yet

Both sides. I thought they were going to be smaller, so I had a different idea of what I might do with them. But they'll still look good on the cowl

Do you mean rocker panel? If so, I did it in the driveway, and took maybe hour and 15 minutes. Just jack up one side at a time, and use the slender clip puller, and have a long flat head screw driver handy..I have pics on my profile.

Not I. Hopefully going to meet this pro racer guy. Wants to see the car. His dad has a lift. Maybe I can get the skip shifter in instead of working without my hands.

They're big. I'd already bought the SS billet emblem for my grill so I kinda have a bit of a design metaphor tug going on. I think nothing on grill, nothing on the back but a small 1LE on back in place of SS and the large 1LE on the cowl is ideal. But purists will say the 1LE should go unmarked. I don't care and I like them on the cowl. I also like the new corvette's square tail lights.

Before I knew how big the badges were, I was thinking I'd replace the rear SS with one, and maybe put the other up on the front of the hood on the driver side. I didn't know about the history of being unbadged, so I still don't care lol. But along the cowl will still look good, and I might still swap or just remove the the rear SS. The front one is already gone, don't like the white letters on the at.

You guys see this? 9 second option.

First is normal. Second is competition mode with two taps of TC button. This also enables launch control. This mode turns TC off 100% and puts stabilitrac into track mode. Third mode is hold TC button for a few seconds, I think 9. This turns everything off and ur steering wheel will stiffen up more.

Yep , It is actually 7 seconds if it is like my 11' was. When you do that Be Careful! LoL there is no controls at all on the car except sterring wheel, gas and brake pedals! Its definitely fun though!!

Thanks for the heads up shawn. At least now when I activate the setting, I won't be surprised from the lack of controls!

No problem , It's like "unleashing" the power the car has stored. Its dangerous to play around with it when you discover this mode , but its so tempting to just " turn it loose" every now and then.

haha...i've been putting it into Competition Mode lately...after seeing it displayed on the DIC, I'd love it if the car would actually announce to me something like "Competition Mode, enabled." Maybe "Strap in and shut up" when all the nannies are off

Looks great man! Did you actually drop the cash for the GM stripes or did you find those somewhere else? I haven't been able to find that particular style at a reasonable price :(
