3,503 lbs of trouble Posted July 6, 2005 Share Posted July 6, 2005 Today I took my driving re-certification test out at GM's Desert Proving Ground. After passing my test successfully, my instructor, knowing of my love of Vettes, said let me take you for a ride in one of ours. He headed over to a twistie course used by engineers to tune suspension, and he took that C5 to it's limits!A cruise with Glenn, Eddie, Dan and Phil combined had nothing on the ride this test driver took me for. He's a fan of "Drifting". I've never felt ANYTHING taken to this extreme, Unfortunately, words can do little to describe what I experienced this morning. All I can tell you is one interesting piece of trivia which will give you all an idea. They go through a full set of tires per one tank of fuel on their Vettes. Their C5 Z06 has a dead battery, so I've got a rain check to go for a ride on the course in that one next. He also told me that he's already had the C6 Z06 on that course, and her said there is a night & day difference between it an the C5. I'd go into more details, but I did sign a confidentially agreement!Damn, and the best part... I got paid to go on that ride!!!! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
