The original question is here.

n8dogg asked:
Could you explain to us what is behind the determination of how many Corvettes are produced per day, week, month, year?

Default Brake Fluid and Track Events

The original question is here.

koranke asked:
The owners manual states that, for track events, the factory brake fluid needs to be replaced with qualified high performance brake fluid with a dry boiling point greater than 279 Celsius. It also states that one should replace the track brake fluid with factory brake fluid before driving on public roads. Why is this? I read a blog post from someone suggesting that high performance brake fluid absorbs moisture quicker and consequently can lead to increased corrosion in the braking system compared to regular brake fluid, but I've also seen posts from others who use high performance brake fluid for all driving and don't report any issues. What bad things could happen from using high performance brake fluid for daily driving on public roads? Or, is the issue really that any brake fluid, once subjected to a day on the track, needs to be changed as soon as possible, and that there's nothing wrong with using high-performance brake fluid on the street?

Default Milford Track Times and Information

The original question is here.

2cnd Chance asked:
I would love to hear what the top Milford Track Times are for the C7: Z06/7, Z06, GS/Z07, GS & Z51. Also any additional information on how the Z07 equipped Corvettes are different than the Corvettes without the Z07 package; suspension-wise and what differences the testers may feel when on the track.

Please also include top Milford Track Times for the C6: ZR1, Z06/7

Default Spring Rates

The original question is here.

Chris Edwards asked:
Can we expand on the spring rate chart below? I'd like to know the differences in spring rates between FE1, FE2, FE3, and FE4, specifically in the exact differences in spring rates between FE2 and FE4.

How about the HD radio question. It has not been the leader in previous polls, but there is interest.

Thank you.

Can C6 GS & Z51 be added to the question?
