    car felt great back on the stock bars. definitely more grip through out turns. results were about the same though.. 3rd in class, about 0.5 sec out of first. 11th overall of 53.

    now that I am very happy with the car's setup..... its (coincidentally) time to move on. I love my ZHP, but its destine for mid-STX results, even if my driving improved. Which isn't terrible, I routinely finish in the top 3 locally, but don't want to sink more money into it with little gains. it will most likely be retired from autox after this year. hopefully I can pull off a 2nd or 3rd place for year long championship in STX with my local SCCA club.

    I do not plan on parting with the ZHP. But if someone is dying for an STX prepared ZHP and all its extras and stock parts, I would entertain offers, but I suspect any offers wouldn't meet the value I (somewhat) emotionally have for the car.

    on to the next project..... I bought a '98 C5 corvette. its an LS1 with 6spd. I bought it from a salvage auction, online, sight unseen. it was totaled for cosmetic damage. what I didn't know when bidding was that it had Trick Flow (aftermarket) heads, big cam, long tube headers, full length 3" exhaust, competition clutch and short throw shifter already installed. I paid $5800 for the vehicle, obviously, there is way more than $5800 already invested by the PO in performance goodies.

    I am calling it LS1-KART. the plan is to remove and scrap the body, put a robust cage on it and go have fun. similar to roadkills' C4 hack. I will maintain a build / evnets thread for it on GRM and my youtube channel "KDYGator", link to the thread:

    I could listen to that thing idle all day. So menacing.

    yea.... there was a moment when this thing fired up for the first time were I felt like a lottery winner... I don't have tags on it yet, so I am limited to puttin around my gated neighborhood in first gear... but it certainly disrupts the peace, even at idle. aren't too many engines that sound better than a cam'ed LS.

    obviously, I have no idea what else has been done to the motor. but, I do intend on running across the same dyno that the ZHP put down 210hp. I bet, it doubles that.

    looks like yall might have some interest in the project... I will post some pics/video from time to time!
