  18. First I thought this was on Tuesday.
    Then I thought today was Tuesday.
    Then I realized today was Wednesday. I was saddened.
    Then I realized this is on Thursday. I was happy again.

    Won't sign up yet though, not sure I'll make it, but hoping to.

    Thing about the Vette is that you simply cannot drive it as hard as the Mustang. The Stang will turn in on feathered or off-throttle without having to throw the rear round under power. The Vette...well...it won't do that at speeds unless you have some pretty extreme settings, but they will compromise it's handling in other ways. You just need to get it slowed right down, and then use all that torque on the way out of the corner.

    The Mustang handles pretty well, but you still can't drive it like a Mini or an Abarth. Just because they're two muscle cars doesn't mean that there is enough of a similarity to drive them both the same way.
