No, it's just a "regular" C6, although he was on new NT05s and I was on used Grand Am Continentals with about a million heat cycles on them. He kept mentioning how I could just walk him on the straights.

He turned out to be a better driver than I had expected.

That Cobra passed me when I missed a 2-3 shift :-/ He was going to pass me anyhow, but I would have made him at least work for it :) Steeda Shifter Bracket inbound!

On the other hand, if you guys are all just chomping at the bit to see 'Vettes being shamed by a BOSS302, check out one of my other videos:

Great videos! I'm headed to Eagle Canyon Raceway in Texas Feb 25 for little track action myself. It will be the first time out in the Boss. All my the track visits before were in my 07 GT/CS or 85 Mustang GT. Looks like it is going to be a lot fun! Any suggestions on what works suspension tuning wise; shock setting, swaybars and such? I'll be on stock tires this time out.
 
Watching you passing cars is getting me really excited to track this bad boy, I love my other car buy 150 hp just doesn't cut it sometimes.

If it isn't too personal a question, what camera/data system are you using? Looks good.

Not as elegant as it looks:

Two separate Flip Mino HD cameras for video/sound ($85ea)
Data is acquired via Trackmaster app ($9.99) for Android smartphone, position/speed etc is GPS from a 10 hz Qstarz beacon ($79), output to the format you see here using the program RaceChrono2Avi (free), then all videos compiled using Pinnacle Studio 12.

If you are lazy and have money I would just get a RaceKeeper or TraqMate system w/ Video.

I have a 1st gen gopro, it works ok but not great. Need to look into that gps unit.

Pair that with your phone and the Trackmaster app (or Harry's Lap Timer, if you have an iPhone)
