Default C7 ZR1: Brakes

The original question is here.

jvp asked:
There's been a lot of interesting information available online since your introduction of the new C7 ZR1. One intriguing bit that caught my attention is the new brakes for the ZR1. Could you explain how they differ from what's available on today's Z07-equipped car?

Default C7 ZR1: Price Announcement vs Dubai Quote

The original question is here.

jvp asked:
We've all seen the announcement from GM about the new ZR1's MSRP of around $120K. However, in Motor Trend's Dubai coverage earlier in November, they included this:

"Juechter said the ZR1 won’t be double the price of the Stingray."

Could you explain the discrepancy in the published price and Motor Trend's quote?

Default Magnetic Ride Performance Calibrations

The original question is here.

Car54 asked:
The recent announcement about the availability of improvements in the suspension calibrations for the C7 said this:

"2014-16 Stingray with Z51 features new calibrations in Tour and Sport modes.
2016 Stingray (non-Z51) features new calibrations in Tour, Sport and Track modes.
2015-16 Z06 (non-Z07) features new calibrations in Tour, Sport and Track modes.
2015-16 Z06 with Z07 Performance Package features new calibrations in Tour, Sport and Track modes."

Why was the 2014-2016 Z51 not included in the Track mode updates? The 2017 cars including the GS were not mentioned nor was there a mention about the 2018 cars. Do the 2017-2018 cars including the GS already have the enhanced calibrations or will they be a part of a future update.

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.
