    I had no particular reason for chosing it. I took it for a spin on Nordschleife and was as fast as a Vette.

    I have a couple of pretty good VETTE setups uploaded for anyone to use. I have run both C5 and C6 models. the c6 is faster here period.

    But the C5 drives a little better!

    Also did a GUMPERT setup which is ok but that car is outclassed by the Chevy.

    Hmmm. I have a C5 skin, but not a C6 - may be a deciding factor :). Trying out the V10 first, though.

    dont think the Viper is a good car here E dawg2. Just enough twisty stuff to negate its top speed I think

    Probably right - Running the same times after a couple of laps with Viper, C6R, & Storm (1:58 - ish) Maintaining speed through the chicanes has to be all the secret.
    (online setups not working for me.. had to play with a Le Mans setup for C6R&Viper, Elkhart Lake for Storm)

    Think I will go with the C6, as I think I can gain the most speed in the least amount of time with it.
