New to Z06Vette.com, want to say hello and need advice.
Hello everyone, I just signed up to Z06vette.com after lerking around for a while, its about time since Ive had my 2002 torch red Z06 for about 4 months now. As I said, I am a proud owner of a 2002 Z06, which I picked up in really great shape with about 87k miles and am loving every minute since. This car is also my first vette, and coming from a 1998 Z28 m6, its a totally different animal. Which is were I need advice in, since after taking the Z06 to the local 1/8 mile, and destroying my best time with my Z28 at said track on my first try, it just dident feel right, the wheel hop was horrible and I decided that I was not going to pursue going any faster at the drag strip. I still have my Z28 so ill leave the strip to that car.
However, I have registered to my first autocross event, which will be this coming saturday, so Id like to know any advice that may help me since I have to real road racing experience. what should I expect? How should I prepare? what should I bring? any advice in general about autocross or anything a new Z06 owner should know would be greatly appreciated.
