I LOVE watching BIG IRON run, I could care less about some buzz bomb with 800cc's.......I wanna REAL car.....which unfortunately rules out NASCAR for ME anyway....boring....

Certain class of SCCA are fine, but others are not, IMO....

Locally here in Carson City Nevada, the have the Virginia City Hill climb Ferrari event. They allow a certain amount of invited friends with "other" cars.

I was able to do pretty good with my smaller motor. But now like you guys with the higher powered Vettes - traction on slow turns is a real problem:thumbsup:

That's a cool video. Never heard "Fly in a fruit jar" I always used "Bumblebee in a milk bottle". And I agree with mrvette- the BIG IRON is where it's at. Nothing like the thump of a Chevy pulling hard. BB or SB.

:cheers:

yea,, when the body is off, it looks like yours, but, you've got alot more motor.

It would be cool to see your car run that hill!!!!

Maybe a sponor will pay the shipping cost to get your over here! thumbsup:

For me it would be cool to see my car run period :rolling:

Anyway. what's that event called? Sure looks like fun. There are no hillclimb events here...heck there aren't even any hills.

I could watch that C3 toss the rear end out all day. Im with you guys about that go-kart. With that much wing, i could fly to the top faster than anyone could drive. :rolling:

HA! You have the excellent food, but I have the hills :laughing:

Only thing is the "hills" here are actually MOUNTAINS. If you slide off the shoulder, it's a LONG way down. Heck my driveway is steeper than the hill in that video :surprised
