Huuuuuuuge synchro issues. My buddy dreads driving it b/c you LITERALLY have to wait a full second between each shift.

Well he did some research on the car and I think he's not going the z route. Now he's been looking at skittles, which IMO is a much better choice for racing and more practical as a dd around here.

I think the little 2seater rwd cars are 'nicer' then the skittle, and fwd sucks, but I would personally have to take the skittle. Those Solctices and skys are cars for 40yr old MILFS, imo....

The Z is a nice car, aesthetically, but

Plus they say the 2nd to 3rd gearing in the SKY/Solstice is fubar. You would think them having the same ECOTEC turbo that the SS/TC has would be a benefit and easy to pull 330 RWHP out of, but not too many people have done much with them.
