Owner and IDOT Trash C5 Corvette, 2:00am, 3/18/11
I heard the screeching tires and the impact from my office, and grabbed the
Day-amn! This graduate of the Lance Briggs School of Hi-Performance Driving
had hit the retaining wall so hard, it sheared the spokes right off the rim
of one of the wheels. Steel and rubber doughnut, anyone?
Clear, dry road, gentle curve, wide, well-marked lanes, beautiful, mild
50-degree Friday morning -- how do they continue to do it? Oh, well, as
long as they do, you'll see it here first.
I'll let you be surprised with --- the REST --- of the story. Watch, enjoy,
and if you're feeling a little schadenfreude for a Vette owner with too
much money and too little common sense, you're human.

1999 Corvette C5 vs. 2013 392 Hemi Challenger
Hey all, this was at Irwindale dragstrip. Got to have a rematch against
that same SRT8 Challenger that properly kicked my ass in the Mustang. I beat him once, but then he
came back with an impressive victory. Hard to believe a car that heavy can
move that fast.
I actually have to wear a helmet now... yes... Ive earned it LOL
Corvette: K&N CAI, GHL bullet Exhaust
392 Challenger: Exhaust, tune

C5 Corvette 'Service Column Lock' Message Fix
Well my 2001 Corvette Z06 got the dreaded "SERVICE COLUMN LOCK" message
after sitting for a while during my summer vacation to Cancun and having
the battery die. After changing the battery I first got the "PULL KEY WAIT
10 SEC" message, then after doing as told, "SERVICE COLUMN LOCK" came onto
The steering wheel was still easily tunable, so this Vette must have had
the recall service done by its previous owner; however my fuel would cut
off at 2 MPH since the cars BCM must have thought the steering was locked.
After hearing from a couple guys on corvetteforum that the LMC5 from
ComplianceParts(DOT)com is the way to go, I decided to give it a shot.
The install was quite simple, and so far it has fixed the fuel cutoff, as
well as both messages.

An alternative to replacing the passenger side check valve on a C5
Corvette(1997-2004). This repair is for the person who wants to fix their
own car without having to remove the fuel rails and intake manifold. This
