Talking Washed & Waxed

The weather here has been real nice. So I decided to wash and wax the cars today.
Oh, and burn up some calories to. I ate and drank too much at a party last night..







Shot another video with the new HID fog lights. This time in a parking garage..

I let my friend drive my stock Z06, and I was in my 600rwhp GTS. Doing a roll race my GTS would destroy my Z. From a dig, the GTS seems to be easier to launch which was a little surprising to me because the Z has traction control. Not to mention launch control to..

A great combination best of both worlds. How does the z06 feel handling wise compared to the viper?

To me there is too much power steering on the Z06, and the back end feels like it floats around a bit when taking corners. I love the steering feel on my Viper. It feels almost like my previous P-cars I had in the past. The Viper also feels more solid structure wise. This might be because of the steel frame vs aluminum. Not to mention another possibility of coils springs vs a leaf spring. Braking, the SRT10 brakes are superior compared to the Z06 brakes..

Anyhow I got rid of the stock Goodyear F1 runflat tires, and put on PS2 tires. The new tires made the car feel better.With that said, next week I'm changing out the stock shocks for some PAFDT adjustable ones. So hopefully this will eliminate the floating feel in the rear, and make the car feel more solid,firmer to..
