Thatcher why are you stuck getting this or the Speed? Either way, Ive heard Bess gave the JX a great review...and that guy gives no BS in his reviews. He used to race at the SB track with us too...damn he was fast.

Never said that... Either one is too much power for you

The Speed actually makes less power than the stock, BUT it is smoother, less wheel spin.

If it were me, id buy another C6.

Unfortunately no. I have a dinner party to attend for a friend that is moving away. Good luck out there dude! Tell us which engine you get. Either way, I want to see it!
