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.

Default Center console armrest and door panel foam indentations

The original question is here.

FYREANT asked:
Many of us have had to have our center console lid/armrest and/or our drivers door panels replaced under warranty due to the foam getting permanent indentation from continued exposure to peoples elbows. These indentations never "heal" after multiple days of not driving the car. I have personally had two center armrest lids and one drivers door panel replaced and mine have become distorted yet again.

The unfortunate thing is that warranty repair replaces these parts with the exact same part number indicating no improvements have been made to the part. As expected these eventually sees the same indentations return after only 5-10,000 miles of driving. Now that a lot of us with 2014's are out of warranty, the continued replacement of these parts gets costly. Has the Corvette team considered improving the underlying padding with stronger density foam that is more resilliant to permanent indentations and shaping? What options do we have rather than continuing to go through groundhog day with the same parts?

Default New C7 suspension calibration software for MR shocks

The original question is here.

mallett435 asked:
The GM release news did not include the 2018 cars. Tadge, can you explain the reason(s) for not including the latest model year? If the 18s do not already include this update, is there a plan to include it at a later date and an estimate of release? Thank you for all of your valuable insight!
