p.s. It's sickening for a TVS2300 Z06 to be pulling 33mpg on the highway!!! 566rwhp never had it so good!

Tony, I saw your guy's cars at the Nitto stand and they looked great! Didn't see any of you guys standing around. Seemed to be a pretty good turn out today. Are you guys leaving from anywhere in particular tomorrow? I would really like to tag along in the morning if you guys are going as a group.
