race in NASA next year?

I said this 3 months ago but I must give props to BaylorCamaro and Jim968 who are schooling "The Pill" Jim968 hard on NASA...it's a fun read. Pill is a keyboard jockey and is mistaken again.

The Pill is a complete douchebag. He only point of contention is that the Z is not able to race in SCCA. So what? 99% of all Z/28's sold will be owned by people that have no interest in racing them there. Pill's biggest problem with the Z is then pointless. So sorry.

I think he's just butt sore that the Z will beat ANY production vehicle that Ford produces. He can't stand it. If he's as connected as he likes to imply, he should get any Ford of his choice and any driver, and put them up against the Z with any driver GM chooses. Hell, even let Ford pick the track.

It's amazing that moron survived on this site as long as he did.

I see All-or-Nothing is there too. I had the pleasure of kicking him off GMI personally.

thePill brings some valid points to the table, however the way he conveys these points isn't the best approach, to say the least...

That is basically the point I was trying to make in numerous posts in that thread. Realistically, look at the target market of people that are going to be buying the expensive & limited production Z/28, probably not too many are going to be interested in racing it in SCCA....

Maybe so, but when it comes to racing he just makes sh!t up. It's as if he's never even been to a road race.

If they don't shut up Ford may not build a true competitor to the Z/28. Why? Believing they don't want that kind of performance. What "car guy" (regardless of favorite brand) is not impressed with a build sheet like the Z/28 has? Either love it or respect it!
