Default Took the 71 Corvette out on the track yesterday

When out and beat on the 71 a little at Road Atlanta.

I was turning some mid to low 1:50 times around the track when I could get a clean lap, which in an automatic car that isn't designed for road racing, and was not being leaned on very hard in the corner (entry/exit) or braking zones, isn't too bad I guess.

Also, next time, move camera to new location! When I set up the GoPro my clip on track mirror did not consume so much real estate!

Might have hurt the transmission, again, as it was slipping lock up in 4th on the way home down the interstate.... Now the time comes, put a 5 speed in it or sell it and take the 7-8k it would cost to convert it and put it into a track car....
496 cu. in. "cruiser"
Assembled & tuned by Mo's Speed Shop - Dallas, GA
