    THANKS ALL! Seriously, I think that was the look of "what the heck did I just get myself into?!?!!?

    Approaching the 200 mile mark on my 500 mile break-in quest and every mile it gets a little more comfortable. MY face is actually sore from the "perma-grin" planted on it over the last 30 hours!

      Once upon a time there was a guy named STVDMAN he rode off in to the sunset looking in the rear view mirror at everyone still on the 5 year waitlists! Wait, did I see him snickering at us mere initial deposit down hooligans? Lol

        OK, little update.

        Break In period done. 95% of the time I was in Z-MODE MANUAL. I kept the RPM's between 1500 and 4000. NO full throttle applications. I didnt let the RPM stay constant for more than 30 seconds at a time (would shift a little higher or lower). No full brake applications, No hard turning/cornering. This was all a LOT more difficult than it sounds to do.

        Once break in was complete, yup, let it rip a couple times......

        Now, for a little backstory. I come from a 2003 Mustang Cobra (Terminator). Just a few mods and she was making just north of 510 FWHP (450 to the tire). very similar power output as a C8 Z51. That car was incredibly fun. On the street no full throttle until 3rd gear as I would just get tire spin. (Again, very fun ). Biggest issue was trying to find tire that offered good grip. Once it was hooked up in 3rd gear, full throttle and I was GONE!

        Well, the C8, from a dig (first gear).....you just hook up and you are GONE! So much so I may have felt a little queasy afterward!

        I am very much looking to explore the limits of the car without exceeding them. WIll attend Spring Mountain in October as a huge part of that quest.

        So far, so good. REALLY enjoying this car.
