Default Hammy's Grand Sport Bar & Grill

Welcome. If you are new to this thread we welcome you, and would like to let you know how important Hammy was to us all and give you a little taste of his wit and charm.

Some of the last words Hammy ever wrote was in this thread. Huskerman had a great idea to share them with all who dare enter this crazy bar.

"You guys are truly sickos....that's why I love this site."

RIP David. Memories of you will forever remain.



And now....back to our regularly scheduled programming.


In honor of the death of Hameister's "Attention Grand Sport Owners" thread.

Here's a place for all of our GS brothers and sisters to hang out and discuss our cars.

Especially since we are not fortunate enough to have our own forums like the Z boys.

Please keep the GS bashing and jealousy out. If you need a place to spew your controversy, the Off Topic section is waiting for you.

And be sure to "THANK" me for this thread!

To start off, I'm in the process of pricing some new tires for mine. Only 12k miles on the oem runcraps.
Then it'll be alignment time!

What happened to the original thread? When I read it he was just stating that the values were rising and maintaining very well. Whats wrong with that?

I'm curious...the Gyears are gone at 12k miles. I'm guessing the wear pattern was bad...correct? Why wouldn't you have done the alignment earlier?
By the way...I have Bstone Potenza 050A Poles on my '11 GS and love them.

'Cause I'm stupid and wasn't keeping up on the threads about the alignment issues. Then it was too late for me.

I thought I needed to be focusing in the REAR tire tread life.

I'll be going with the Potenzas.

Bad wear seems like it can show up overnight...and once it starts it's too late!
I think you'll like the Potenzas...

By the way everyone, if you drop the rear on the Grandsport (on the stock bolts) without dropping the front do you need to do any alignment work?

IMHO...anytime you change ride height...even if dropped both ends the same amount...it needs an alignment. Perhaps someone smarted that me can chime in.

Also, the bad thing about a GS thread is there are some real smart folks (ie Fort Morgan Al, HOXXOH, cclive, etc) that my not bother to come in...just sayin.

Just ordered two 325-30-19 Nitto Invos for $600 delivered.
Two years ago $700 was the best I could find.

On the positive side, you guys might be smarter than us Z owners... If I would have known about some of the issues with Z's, I would be part of your club and not trolling haha... I love all Corvettes! I did have mine addressed and Love it.
