Howdy folks...

Hello fellow car nuts!

I'm a bonafide enthusiast and a big fan of F1 and WRC. I'm not company loyal, but go after any and all great cars. Ever since the C7 was rumored I've been interested and when it actually came out, I fell in love.

I have an STI that I track and rally and just pulled the trigger on a '13 Boss - which is freaking awesome, but I could certainly see a Stingray in my stable in a few years too.

One of my best friends has an 09 ZO6 and I'm very curious to see how it and the Stingray compare.

Cheers and I look forward to being an active member on here.

Nawar aka Nawambo.

Another Boss owner! I like Formula 1 too! :rockon:
I test drove a WRX STi last year... fine ride but the Camaro was more to my liking.

And some homeboy named GaB chime in? :madgrin:
I'm in Dallas right now... layover on the way to Seattle. For work.

Stingray, nice pair of beauties... I'll post a few pics ...though I have more of my STI rallying and on the track somewhere, I'll have to find those too.

These are of the Boss which I just got about 5 weeks ago. I'm loving every minute behind the wheel and look forward to tracking it this season.

Cheers,
Nawambo

Thanks, had promised the wife not to nag her about another car for me for 10 years, but that kind of went out the window with the C7, LOL. She's a good soul though and a car nut in her own right, we'll see what a year or two will bring.

Because.... R.... well, you know!

Nawambo~ Have you inquired or signed up for the track attack at Utah Motorsports? Free to 1st/orig owners of Boss 302s... I haven't yet but I plan to. I also need to purchase the darn Red Key. Procrastination... :sad:

Stingray, not yet, though I can't wait to do the track attack, since I want to track it anyway and I have to "relearn" how to track it, as I've been tracking an AWD STI for the past four years. Hoping to do an autocross first just to better grasp how to handle a hugely powerful RWD. Hoping to do Track Attack sometime by the end of this year. Apparently, it fills up really quick.

I wanted Red Key, then heard on TheMustangSource (I'm Nawambo there too) that it can void your warranty I'll probably get it, but for now, this is still a LOT of fun with "only" the White Key.

^ Yup Track Attack fills up fast!

I read the 3/36 warranty is intact with the Red Key in use:
"If any issues occur due to the TracKey installation, the warranty coverage is 3 yr/36,000 miles, however, any other concerns falling under the normal powertrain warranty will be covered for 5 yrs/60,000 miles."

Hmmm, glad to hear. It was a lot of back and forth and "My dealer told me" rhetoric. I'll probably get it either way.
