At the BIR track yesterday lapping with us poor Corvette boys was a 911tt. In one of the afternoon run sessions, we pulled out of the pits together with me about a car length in front. As we accelerated to speed, he was hanging pretty tight, I was pulling on him slowly. We were still coming up to speed when we reached turn 1, a banked sweeper. I kept checking my mirror and he stayed pretty close through turns 1 to 10. He did have race tires to my Eagle F1SC streets. As we reached the long straight exiting turn 10, he was a 4 or 5 car lengths back. Down the straight we went. I pulled a few more car lengths then I lifted a little for turn 1 (speeds around 125 on the entry). I powered through turn 1 and then turn 2 at about 120. Heading for turn 3 I looked in the mirror and Porsche boy was now a distant memory. /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif

Best part was a few minutes after our run session, over he walks trying to figure out how a Z06 destroyed him. /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_eek.gif Nice guy, liked my car and the mod red interior. He made me list all my mods so he wouldn't feel so bad about his encounter with a street tired, QS Bad A$$! /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif

JC, isn't this worth a free Z06Vette.com shirt.

Sounds like it was a thorough spanking. /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif

Ron, you need a video camera mount in your car. I would love to see video of that action.

Great story Ron! I think I would have told him it was a stock Z! /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif

Did he have any mods other than tires?

Ron,

Very nice kill! /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif

You would think that with the superior European handling, all wheel drive and race tires he would have enough to make up the few HP you might have on him. /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif

Nice job!

It was very enjoyable opening a can of whup a$$ on a 911TT! Running turn 1 and turn 2 at high speeds is primarily about testicle size /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif Some guys say theirs just disappear into their stomach just when they approach those turns. /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_eek.gif Actually, those cars are pretty cool, but I like our bang for the buck.

Ron: Sounds like you spend a fair amount of time on the track. Sure would be cool if you had an incar camera that you could post videos with so the rest of us could ride along with ya. Great story! /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_cool.gif /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_wink.gif /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_cool.gif

I have been a little spooked about in-car videos. The last time I had a camera in my car, the car ended up on its roof with me suffering a compression fracture of my neck. /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_eek.gif To make it worse, I had neglected to even turn the damn camera on so I didn't even get the crash on video! /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_flaming.gif

Nice story ron. Love to hear about Americas Flagship dominate the raceway. I bet that guy felt like selling his 100,000 dollar car and getting something worth it like 2 Z's /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_lol.gif Good job buddy, keep those storys coming and try to get some video action. You can tell we all would love to see it /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif
