If any of you guys get a chance, our C4's can hang fairly well with one of these guys, at least for short bursts. Got to hang with one coming home from work along one of our classic Austin curvy roads. I'm actually kind of humbled the guy in the Maserati would want to humor me and my car. I think he thought he was going to be a lot quicker than me at first, which is why he was disappointed and then eventually went balls out and just kept picking up speed in one of the long deep corners, i actually thought the guy was nuts going that fast in a corner like that, but the Maserati didn't break a sweat. I knew my vette couldn't do that, even if my tires hadn't been mostly bald. :laughing: short deep corners, we can hang. :thumbsup:

Be proud of our C4's, even if they are a pain in the ass sometimes. :thumbsup:

Was going down the garden state parkway yesterday in my daily driver and saw one of those (in black) weaving traffic like it was his job! Its times like those that I wish I was in the vette... I would have given him a run for his money! Im also young and stupid enough to drive as rediculously as he was on the highway! :D Would have been fun but I guess for now I just have to keep dreaming :D HAHA

Seems like everytime I take the vette out I never run into circumstances like that. But in my beat up daily driver I seem to see it everyday :thud:
