I picked a C5rZ drove home 850miles. This thing is a beast.
525RWH is way to much power. I think I bit of more than I
can chew. I got to re think this decision. WOW!

First of all congrats on the ride. Second, please give yourself every opportunity to learn the car. I've seen far to many unfortunate things come about because one loses respect for the car and the power. Be careful and enjoy the learning curve...... ;)

Hehe... when I first got my bone stock '01 Z06 I brought it home and my neighboor came over and we went blasting down the street full throttle speed shifting 1-3 gears spinning tires... I stopped and was in shock... he said, "whoah, that's better than a roller coaster". I have to admit that the car scared me (it was so much faster than my mustang) and took care in mastering her power... I can only imagine how a 427 feels.

Took a few hours :) to get used to mine. But now, I could use another 100 hp. Normally aspirated of course, none of the power adder stuff. :)

There's no such thing as too much power. ;)
If you decide to keep the car, remember your current feelings in a few months and see if you still feel the same way. Just be careful until you're comfortable with the package, and then maybe invest in a tire company. :thumb:

Congrats on the new ride, deuce!! Give it time like everyone is saying and you will love it. You have something that most of us would give a right "acorn" for. Return to this thread is about a month or so and then tell us what you really think. :jammin:

You'll be fine ... you're starting out with respect for the beast ... that's a good thing.
You will learn how to manage the power and figure out how to get it to the ground. The resulting :D will be wide and permanent! :jammin:
