You should come up to SCR SCCA some time LOL, there are a couple of 'vettes that run very, very, fast. I'm not going to disagree with you that tight autox courses will be quite a handful for a corvette. Though there is a C5 Z06 that is wicked fast that runs SM2, but sometimes the car is just a bit too wide;). Though there is a C4 vette that runs AS up in Charlotte that will take FTD sometimes. The driver is very good:)

Though that is a fun thing about autocross, you can always point at "faster" cars that you beat for the day. In fact, at our big event at Michelin proving grounds in september, I was a second faster than a 2nd gen Viper

He was whining thoughout the day, , something about not being able to get heat into his 325??(maybe bigger) Hoosiers
