I had a amazing time for the first 500 miles the performance was incredible with the 4500 rpm limit. I would have been happy with that for a long time. Only have about 28 mile with full power WHAT A BEAST!!! I don't see my self needing any more power any time soon. Love the cornering simply unbelievable have all ready push it pass the limit in the curves and the car pulled the power away from me. I don't plan on turning the assist off any time soon maybe after the Ron Fellow training. PDR is very cool glad I waited for that. Now just have to figure out how to load the tool box from Cosworth. Looks like we have to pay for the software for our computer. Keep it between the ditches!!:p

I agree 1000%.. amazing cars. I had the opportunity to run a parade lap today at the new NCM road course.. Had a great lead car. Even with a damp track, this think was truly "on rails"!!!! I'm about 100 miles from the 500 mark so I did keep it under 4500 for the most part.. I recorded both laps on the PDR and I cannot wait to get home and play with the toolbox.

Cowboy, can you confirm if there is an additional fee for the toolbox? I was always under the impression the PDR came with access to the toolbox. I would have imagined you could enter a code for the download, and the code would somehow be tied to your VIN or something.

If you can find the tool box software let me know where. I have not found it on line yet.

Have not found it yet on line nor in the manual.

Try registering your car at http://my.chevrolet.com and see there is any link to the software? Also, were there any CD's / DVD's included in your manual package?

Of course there is always a call to your dealer and/or GM customer service.

What exactly does the "tool box" provide for the owner?
3 minutes in they describe the toolbox. It alone is worth a few hundred $$$. Race teams pay thousands for Cosworth track software.

Woody,

How did you find that page, there is no direct link on their home page or in their site map that I could find. Just curious.

There was a small link at the very bottom of the Chevy Corvette info page.. then another link to cosworth. They don't make it easy to find.

Up to 725 miles now. I have broke the car in so far like the owners manual says. I have drove it pretty hard never got to 4500RPM while under 500 miles. Maybe 4400 a couple of times. On third tank of fuel in 725 miles I would say I'm driving pretty hard. Have only hit 6500RPM three times. Will try to keep my shifts at 6000 from here on out when being aggressive shifting closer to the top of the torque curve is a lot more fun!! Anyone worried about oil ingestion from burping or hard driving just make sure your dry sump system is not over full. I think that is where most of the issues have come from. I told the dealership not to add any oil unless I was there to verify the level and what was added. Here is a picture of dip stick and the level I have been running the oil level at. Also took all the air inlet ducting off to check for any oil. None found not even a drop. I will probably add a catch can to try to catch vapors but am not freaked out like I was before from reading about the coking of valves. I did expect to find some oil even propped the ducting up because it looks like to me there are traps to collect oil coming from the prv lines. No oil found, not even oily film. image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg

I was originally not going to order the PDR with a 2LT, but I think I have changed my mind.
