The Corvette Stingray is one powerful car. Just ask “yuri_Stingray” who was among the first customers to receive their new C7. Unfortunately for Yuri, he picked the wrong road to test his new “headers and tune” modifications and now has to pay a hefty fine.
Here is what Yuri posted on the Corvette Forum:
Learn from my mistake. I went to a place where I thought I would have some isolation and did a little road testing with my headers and tune combo….lets just say it gets up to “speed” a lot quicker now. However, be warned, the ticket for doing so is pretty hefty (rightfully so) . Over $1k by quite a bit and I’ll leave it at that. Not trying to brag, I’m honestly just saying to be careful and admitting to how dumb of a move it was. I am sure that I’m not the only one who is beyond excited to see what the stingray can do, so this should be a lesson to all, there are much better/safer places to do things like this. I’ll be searching for a legitimate closed course to do any additional testing. Be careful everyone!
Yuri’s wife jumped out the Arctic White C7 Corvette to “capture this moment in all of its glory“. Yuri says she mentioned the ticket at least five times over the weekend so this will probably go down on his permanent record at least as far as the wife is concerned.
Yuri hasn’t said exactly how fast he was going or the state that it happened it, but a fine of more than $1,000 tells us he was moving at a very fast pace indeed. Yuri says the officer told him he could have been arrested so he’s feeling a bit lucky to just get off with the fine.
