I raced a C5, on the street of course, the same day I got my car back from having the gears put in.
The guy who did my gears let it run in 1st gear for a while with the car up on the lift; did that a couple times over the course of a morning to heat cycle them a little and then took it on a short test drive to make sure all was good. I picked the car up, drove it nice for about 50 miles until I met up with the earlier mentioned C5.
Was just a little light to light action that didn't make it beyond 3rd gear, but to finish the story, yes I smoked him. Don't ask me how, maybe his car was an auto, maybe he was being a vagina, but I was going for it and I know he was too and two pulls in a row I got him.
Like Rabbit said, take it out and let it eat.
