I had the opportunity of being a passenger in an LS7 for a 20 minute session on the big track and I was blown away with the mechanical grip and awesome power of the engine and the brakes. On the back straight it was pulling very hard in all 6 gears close to 240. Wow. I may need a neck brace.

Also during our lunch break this car took to the track and it was screaming around the place. I don't anything about except it looked like a GT1

The road course is a BLAST :nod:, and yes, the C6Z is one HELLUVA car out there! :D However, unless it was geared with ~4.56's, that 240 km/h pull would be in 4th gear still, not 6th ;).

That blue car pictured could be from Gateway (the race shop up there at the track).

So have you got the "bug" yourself yet? You don't need to be a pro to run your car at Mosport. There are LOTS of opportunities for average, everyday people to take their cars on the track :cheers:.

I have to visit this place more often. It probably was 4th gear, i can't say I was counting. I was there with the Porsches and have a project on the go that is designed specifically for Mosport. It's coming along nicely and I hope to fire the motor before spring and with some luck it could be sorted enough to bring to the track in the summer.

Hey Pete!

Congrats on the 'Vet!

When I ran my heads & cam Camaro on the "Big Track", I would hit about 220 kph - but I'd have to shift into 5th about 2/3 of the way up the Andretti Straight because of my 4.10s. Unfortunately, as soon as I had to grab 5th, the car fell on its face with the overdrive gearing. :bang:

Best regards,
