werd.

I find these things very controlable when pushed to the limits, and beyond.

Keep practicing, cause when you add some POWA...it'll be like it's raining everyday...

Thats some good info to know. I participate in drift events with my firehawk, (far as I know the only one) and was thinking about upgrading to a c5 ZO6 in the next couple of years. I had a feeling that with a stance like the vette has it would be nice and stable. When I first started I noticed that my hawk would have a tendency to understeeer and I would shift lock at mid corner to break loose. These days I just go into a corner too hot and juke the car and she'll usually do what I ask.
