Nice going!
There's time to be made up on your 60' and your shifts. I had GREAT success on 315/17 Hoosier DR's. Yours were pretty old and may have lost some of their bite.

Did you do a burnout?...

After 4 Z06's & 13 years of Corvette ownership....I'm out!

That's right. I can hardly believe it myself, but after 13 straight years of owning a Z06 (03' C5Z, 06' & 09' C6Z's & 11' Carbon Edition C6Z) I no longer own a Corvette. :(

2 weeks ago I traded in...

I certainly hope it would feel faster. After all, it DOES have another 145hp, no?

If you are a beginner and plan to only track 1-2x/year, just use those wheels and use a set of street tires and have fun!

Thanks for that info!
I asked and they'll fit. he said they just may stick out a little. If you are going to use them for racing, it doesn't matter what they look like.
