Default 2011 Carbon Edition Z06

Is this model still in AS? Also I assume you can't swap brakes to the standard Z06 setup and run 18's all around since it came with 20" wheels in the rear?

You can put 18's on a carbon edition. A lot of guys run 18x11 and 18x13 combo to run hoosiers and slicks.

He didn't mean they won't physically fit. He meant that the A Street rules only allow a change of diameter of 1" either way. On that and the brakes question, did the regular Z06 in 2011 come with 18/19 and iron brake discs? If so, I would think one could make the desired swaps, but I haven't competed in Street class in so long that it was Stock the last time I did.

ETA: Per the SCCA rule book:

Based on that, if a regular Z06 in 2011 came with iron discs and 18/19" wheels, then you could make the changes. You'd have to make any other changes that came as a package on the Carbon Edition, too. That might include aero devices. I'd seek clarification on the latter, because that would make this change a big hassle.
