    what'd ya think?

    i was pretty pissed that the c6 beat the elise in the G's category... and even moer so that it took car of '05. I mean, its been out what, a week? it's not a bad car or antyhing, but IMO, it doesn't even come close to the others that were in the category.

    ohh, and brooke burke > carmen elfucktra.

    damnit... why didn't you post something before hand? The C6 is on par with the elise as far as cornering. Goes to show you what leaf springs and pushrods can do. :)

    Corvette people = Can I hear a Hell YAH!



    The corvette was doing a full G in a turn before even the Esprit was. And that's amazing.

    Motor Trend, for it's Car of the Year award, tested the Vette was astounding results - I've owned on these cars, And it's godly. Without a doubt the best engineering to come out of the US 3var

    Two cars from Civicland were shown... but I haven't watched it yet. I'm sure it'll replay about 98732908875 times this week.

    Eh, who cares. If the show makes it big, then I'll try to get on it. Until then, I'll just keep building and shoot for a spread in Sport Compact Car or something. :lol:
