Second night out
I just got back from my second day-night of driving the Z06. 375 miles on it now. I've been trying to keep off the gas, but tonight I was behind some honda or something, and suddenly my passenger pointed out that we were being followed by another C5. It was a convertible....a fact I noticed when he decided to pass both me and the honda, and tear off down the road. Not one to pass up play time, I followed him. We played for a while, and then got on the highway. I ran it up to a slightly ridiculous speed, and pushed past him briefly before putting on the brakes and getting off the highway. My passenger was instructed to wave while passing, but we don't know if he could see us in the dark. Anyway, I was blown away by the power. I didn't even rev the car up much, and it easily shot up to speeds higher than I've ever driven. I still haven't even managed to make the tires squeal around a corner. Absolutely incredible. I know most of you folks here are more than familiar with these cars, but I have to say....going from a hot rodded 71 vette to a 2002 Z06 is a mind blowing change for me. I can't wait to finish breaking it in, and really test it out. I'll be leaving active handling on, and trying to stay alive though. I know this thing can take me far beyond my present abilities.
