Saw this car in person and it looks awesome! I can't remember what the wear rating is on those tires but it is something like 3,000 miles. Ouch!

At 3320 lbs curb weight, it's becoming a PORKER!

Yea, as "whatcop" commented, you'd think these mags would get there facts straight before putting this stuff out. 60's at the top of first, and 90's at the top of second. Dont know where they're getting the 3320 curb weight either, as that's the ZR1 with all the extra hardware over the nose. My 06' 1LZ lists at 3132.

Nice car but don't you think 11.9 isn't that great, especially with those tires.
