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

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

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.

Default Aftermarket part influences on factory release models

The original question is here.

FYREANT asked:
The Corvette is a car that everybody loves to modify in order to customize and tweak certain aspects to their liking. Do aftermarket parts have any influence on Corvette feature and design enhancement for later model years in a generation model run? If so, can you explain the process for how these influences make their way through to model release?

As an example, some folks with 2014's got certain body parts painted to color match their car such as brake light bezels, hood vents, rear lower diffuser, etc. Some of these sometimes later become factory options. If the Corvette team gets influence from this type of owner customization, what does that look like? Does someone on the team see an aftermarket option and bring it to the rest of the team?
