Yes I will run some solo 2's with the local Competion corvette club as they tend to run events that are a lot of fun and you get lots of runs compared to going to CASC events and besides the Corvette group is not as anal as the other groups.DJ
I bought my Z06 for the exclusive purpose of Auto-X. It also sound good when you go to sell it and you can say it was driven just for a little while on Sundays and some Saturdays ( Just Kidding ). Surprising enouph, I sold my 96 LT4 at a car show in a Auto-X prepared class. The guy wanted it for Drag racing exlusively.
If all goes well, I will also be at the SCCA Nationals. I will be there Saturday for the practice runs. It would be great to get together and say some hellos.

Have to agree! When you look up this car in the dictionary you see an autocross track full of cones!! With its super low end torque and a lowered first gear, it should be awesome. MY first event is JULY 1st..need to get me over 100 miles which I see no problem on. Will throw my 315 Kuhmos on the back; 275's up front, and have at it!
Screw the cones be real men and take it out on a race track and let the girl stretch her legs!!!
I have already run VIR and will be at Summit point this weekend abusing the car and getting every last bit of my near $50k out of it!!
Seriously, the Z06 has NOTHING for low end, it doesn't even come alive until 3000rpm. That is one of the things that really disappointed me about my car (don't get me wrong I love it), the total lack of low end grunt (we're talking <1500rpm). That and the lack of instant throttle response.
I'd really like the LPE 427 setup, anyone wanna lend me $30k to make it happen?
No mine is a daily driver for the street, I wouldn't mind building one for the track though. It seems the General is starting to take a stand on warranty claims if they have proof of your taking your car to the track. /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_frown.gif

In Omaha, we have no road courses, so autocrossing is the way to go..
Haven't taken the Z on the courses yet, tho. Had it out at the last event hoping to take it on a fun run, but alas, no fun runs that day..
My problem is I've been autocrossing (and trophied last event! whoo hoo) the S4, and moving from a mildly-powered AWD car to a super powered RWD car, I didn't want to make a fool out of myself during a points event.
Thing is - I sorta kicked myself cuz I could have taken the Z around the course at 15 mph and gotten 1st place in super stock.. Nobody else driving in that class.. /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_frown.gif BUT, Street Tire was heavily competitive (27 drivers, I think) - and the S4 got 3rd!
The Z goes out next time, and I will definitely post videos.. Definitely.
I have brand new, mounted Hoosiers in the garage, just waiting for the delivery of my 02 ZO6. I figure the 800 mile trip from BG should just about make it perfect to AutoX on the following Sunday. I'm still mad that the SCCA won't allow me to compete at the Solo II Nationals in Topeka in a 2002 ZO6.
