What shows up at 14:10? That is the end of the video! The camera work on this video is MARGINALLY better than the other one.

At 5:17 our Texas ZR1 shows up. They send him to the front of the pack right away. The other Texas car (a Mustang) makes its debut at 12:30.

A serious question to the techies. On the manual gearbox, I thought revving the engine when the clutch pedal is pushed in is NO-NO! I only rev the engine in neutral without pushing the clutch in, but I'm old school. Some quick google search says it is no longer an issue with modern throughout bearings. What say you?

I guess on the DCT's it's a non-issue.

Can't speak for anyone else but I'm glad the ZR1 did not have a tacky wrap or stickers plastered all over it . Also glad there wasn't someone hanging out the window waving a smoke bomb. It had a nice, conservative look and anyone who knows what it was had to be impressed.
