A little LS2 ride before the snow flys

Today was a nice day for a quick little ride in the vette. I thought I would post a few videos of probably the last ride of the year for me.


A run with open electric cut outs.

A short little burn out.

I hope to find a nice large paved area where I can really open up this LS motor and do some tire shredding where I don't have to worry about hitting anything or any one else.

Awesome!!

The vids were great, camera mount not jiggling or anything. Attached with 100mph tape? What do you think your top speed was on these runs?

The second time I ran the video's I did so with eyes closed. The sound of these engines is amazing..... I just love to listen to how they run.

You have given me inspiration, can't wait to get mine on the road.

Thanks guys for all the complements.
I was using my go pro hero 2 camera with the suction cup mount, it works really well.
My speeds in these videos wasn't really that fast, I'm really not sure of the speeds. I did have some 100+ runs on video but they weren't really all that impressive to post.
I hoping to find some where to run the car and act a little crazy with the throttle, making a little smoke. I just don't want to get in any trouble while doing it, it might have to wait untill spring at one of the auto cross events I hope to attend.

7T, try playing the video with a loud sound system with a sub woofer, I did this the other day and it sounds great.

Riggs.
